    well, here's the story.
    I just applied for a account at Natwest for the under 18s.
    I'm training for my PPL (Private Pilot's License) so I thought it would be cool to have Captain instead of Master.
    But it has come to my attention that since i actually don't have the license, i'm not officially captain yet.

    Is this fraud? D:

    It's misrepresentation - and you won't be a captain even when you get your PPL.

    You can dream, but not pass yourself off as something you are not. As you're under 18 the bank would probably just consider it idiocy rather than fraud :p:

    oh, I was contemplating going for a PPL just to be able to call myself Captain until you said that

    You must have a lot of money to burn... just change your name to Captain Hook by deed poll - it's a lot cheaper and more environmentally friendly

    correct me if im wrong, but isnt the captain part on the application form directed more towards the rank in the army than for people with pilots licenses?

    Yep - army, navy, airforce, master mariners.... I assumed the PPL thing was trolling
