For the pilot license mission, you can complete the quest in a different way by speaking to the Lunar Shadow Crewmen in the flophouse on the Docks. Alternatively, you can also complete that mission by persuading the captain of the crewmen to return. You can find him in the Jekk-Jekk Tarr. If you are good at Pazaak, you can also attempt to beat the Champ. You'll need the password to the Pazaak Den, which you can get from the Chandra-Fan that SW01 mentioned.
