For a more detailed description of aircrew, the reader is directed to Sons of Valhalla. However, aircrew come in two varieties: pilots and the rest.

There is one advantage to being aircrew. The RFC and the RAF have always been keen on making the officer class face the dangers of getting their arrse shot off. The scruffy tradesmen get to stay home braving the odd air raid, spetznaz assassination, mortar attack or randy Short Range Patrol Group (depending on the war in question).
