I have read the book several times. The pilot was english, the crew was dutch, because English pilots were considered top notch, with better schools. I think every other member of the crew were dutch though.

Correct. John Blackthorne, Dutch pilot.

My absolute favorite miniseries...saw it for the first time when I was stationed in Japan.

We're both right... From multiple websites describing the series: "17th-century English pilot commanding a Dutch ship"
