v0.2 This is a update following some reports of conflict with the stock Asobo F-18 and the freeware and most amazing mod from  
TouchingCloud for the FA-18 Super Warrior https://flightsim.to/file/23760/f-a-18-super-warrior  The issue would remove visible fighter pilots from both aircraft...this fixes and returns those characters and they should appear now properly in both aircraft!!! The Super Warrior Mod goes hand in hand with the unbelievable freeware contribution from @PhotosbyKev that can be found https://flightsim.to/file/24323/carrier-ops-uss-enterprise and if you haven't checked out his other creative works please do so with the link thru his name!!! Thanks for all the community support!!!

A huge shoutout to the Flight Sim Community for being a friendly and helpful place...this mod is to replace the new Military_Pilots characters with 2 familiar faces to zip around with

This is a standalone mod that is dropped into the community folder that will add 2 additional Military pilots

******Thumbnails currently do not work with SU7 and a zendesk ticket has been submitted*****

Thumbnails are still in the package and should show once the error is corrected from MS/Asobo...I have included a character sheet png in the main folder that will help you to see the characters you are selecting!!!

Thumbnails are now included for easy pilot selection
Pilots are chosen from the Options\Misc. tab within the sim.

I have not found a conflict with having this mod installed along with the newbies/buddies pilot character mod ( https://flightsim.to/file/4521/the-newbies-pilot-character-mod )and one ground texture mod installed. Pilots will show as well as your ground crew texture of choice. These are seperate models.

I know that we don't spend much time looking at the pilot to begin with...but if we have to we may as well enjoy it!

If you enjoy this mod or have suggestions please drop a comment below!

Is it possible to add additional pilots if we create our own? I understand the layout.json issue and all that but will the sim allow it?

Does this work with current sim version? 😀

An update of the mod would be interesting, so that it is compatible with SU9, TopGun Maverick DLC and maybe new skins with some other characters from the movie.

Just curious but has anyone suggested a Thunderbird pilot mod for the F-16?

any luck with a pilot figure with modern green/tan flight suits and HGU55 helmet that we can use pls?

AWESOME!

This might be a stretch (pun intended 😀 ) but using this pilot body models with the new gliders (Discus, DG808s and AS33) there are parts of the pilots arse and especially seatbelts coming out on the bottom of the planes. Do you thing they could be maybe removed or reduces a little?

I am aware that I might be asking too much but... can't hurt a question.

Thanks!

Perfecto para los jets, un gran trabajo! Gracias

Can you design one for GA helicopter pilot with just the helmet, visor and mic.? More civilian helicopter is coming to the sim.

"I know that we don't spend much time looking at the pilot to begin with...but if we have to we may as well enjoy it!"

My own personal experience, but, I actually spend a lot of time using external views, because, while I'm a real world pilot for over a decade, and I certainly appreciate the normal pilots view from the inside, I also LOVE the mechanical beauty of the aircraft themselves. I oogle over the exteriors in game as much as I do at fly-ins and airshows in real life. In the sim I am an insatiable screenshot junkie, so for ME, authentic exterior views are very important! THANK YOU for making these! they are excellent!!

Amazing! Thank you so much!

for those who can't find the pilot. It is label under the name "Pete" or "CoastGuard" in the Pilot avatar option.

Update: 7 Jan 2022

@twoseventyinc can you create a new pilot to go into the new F35 made by Indiafoxtecho?

I am unable to display the pilot inside the cockpit. How can I do it? SERVICES_BUDDIES does not appear in the menu pilot option. Thank

Is it possible to do a modern pilot figure with the USAF grey HGU-55 helmet that we can put in the P-51D?

It was missing...

A plane with no pilot is a drone.

Can you make TIE fighter pilot, white and black skin ^_^
