No disrespect to co-pilots, but in the two airlines I worked where they handed over pilot selection to co-pilots (albeit in tandem with an HR person), there was a steady stream of awkward odd balls coming through. If a company really wants pilots selecting pilots, it really needs pilots who have been working with other pilots for many many years to have an instinct for telling apart the good from the bad. I've always been of the opinion that engineers or handling staff would choose a better class of pilot. Recruiters tend to hire in an image of themselves - so give it to pilots, and you end up with yet another egotistical young aerosexual!
