Pilots will need more cockpit and other training to become fully certified first officers for passenger and cargo airlines, the Federal Aviation Administration said on Wednesday.

In a rule that was ordered by Congress to boost safety and in the works for some time, the FAA is mandating that co-pilots complete 1,500 hours total time as a pilot.

Previously, first officers were required to have only a commercial pilot certificate, which requires 250 hours of flight time.
