Big Star Wars Spoiler Ahead


I went to see the new Star Wars film
and I was (very) happy I did

People have allegedly found all sorts of plot holes,
but the only one which really bothered me
I have not seen talked about anywhere
BIG SPOILER AHEAD
DO NOT READ FURTHER
IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN
THE FORCE AWAKENS

Once a central figure is gone, a new crew forms for the Millennium Falcon:
Rey and Chewbacca; fair enough — but why does Chewie remain
co-pilot while the young novice takes over the pilot's seat?

Doesn't the older and more experienced Wookie, the one who has so
many years of flight behind him, deserve to advance to full pilot on the ship
he has served on for so many years, with the novice starting out
(à la Obi-Wan Kenobi and other Padawans) in the novice position?!
