The Pilot kit is a hidden, non-selectable kit that exists within the game files of Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 3. It exists to allow the player's character model within the aircraft to resemble that of an actual pilot of whichever nation's air force they are fighting for. In the sense that it is a hidden kit that is only accessible under certain circumstances, it is similar to the flamethrower kit.
Separate models are used for helicopter aircrew (helmet, visor, open mask) and for jet pilots (full helmet with breathing apparatus). Upon switching to a passenger position or exiting the vehicle, the player is switched back to the model for their chosen class and faction.
- Both the USMC and RGF pilots share the same USAF pilot character model.
- When the pilot kit is activated (for both USMC and RGF), the Combat Gloves/Half Fingered Gloves change to USAF's Green Oakley Pilot Gloves.
