any CV crew--
cv4 5 FP, 2 DB/TB, 1 seaman or sonar or a 6th FP or a 3rd bomber.
max is 8 pilots so higher tier cvs would have 8 pilots with any remaining slots filled as above or with Engies.
launch pattern 2 of 1st 3 flights are max fighters. NO RETURN doubles flight time. HAVE PLENTY ABOARD! always escort bombers half way, i e , except on return(FP NO RETURN).
approximately 75% fighters and 25% bombers loaded on ship. or maybe 80/20.
you can have a lilbit of fun with bombers . AND it works!
