Planesman is not potential, it's air refil.
And you can't.

exactly as its name says - the stat is only "potential" when it is blank and unclassedonce you class it = the 'potential' becomes a specific skill .. it is now SPECIFIC to taskhigh pot sailors include :BO .. sight line range etc SONAR ... sonar ablilityPLANESMAN ... air supply MEDIC ... crew death modifierMARINE ... ha landing attack*RADIOMAN ... *(not used = any junk stat will do)* so - once you classed it planesman = you got AIR supply + and lost all the other optionsa bo is a bo .. a planesman is a planesman .. they are differnt and NOT interchangeable ..... planesman =/= bo .......... sorry but NO ... a SS planesman does not equal a BB bo ..but .. on the other hand .... your SS bo can drive the event ships (also the cv bo as well)

@redherrings: this is probably not entirely the case.
Putting each of my engineers in the BO slot of my H41 gives me all different guideline lengths - this means that the "potential" stat of engies at least is used by the game exactly the same way as for a BO.

Follow this question. My ss bo is almost empty and just has several rookies to save the weight. I am still leveling it up.The question is whether it is really necessary to put just a "light" BO on ss, or it is still ok to have some sailors, like 100 vets and 300 experts. Then I can use it for both ss and ebbs.  This is my first ss line and I dont want to mess it up just because of a fat BO. Thanks.

[/QUOTE]A boosted planesman EBVE near level 85 give enought potential ability, I'm leveling that crew on my EBB ships, they works extremely well, due that  above lvl 100 I need to remove some recruits due the guidelines are more larger than the guns range.Well is a good tactic do that, but u need to remove a lot of recruits if the sailor (planesman or sonarman +15 of base for potential) has more than 150 vets above lvl 100, my best choice due the repair revision is has a seaman as BO on EBB ships, they give a good revision on repair (u can't see it on harbour but on battle is notorious the boost), if the seaman is a hero (+14 of potential) above lvl 100 u need remove a huge  number of recruits.

I prefer a good base of vets, experts and about 25 rookies on my BO.
