yes

it works

need proper nodes names.

but it will show pilot in parked aircraft on the flight line... but there is also a solution - you can animate - hide pilot for parking animation. But then there is a different sequence of parenting nodes - and in that case, the head movement does not work.  

But head still can be animated via SystemType=GUNNER_STATION trick.

I did that in my Harrier. 

pro

the pilot is part of the model that gives the chance to make a more personalized crew for each aircraft, decals on the face, helmet etc....(wonder if someone noticed that in Harriers some squadrons have decal sets for pilot helmets)

et contra:

it will eat one animation slot for sure (hide), adds polycount to model (not issue actually in fact - but some might think so) - generally adds more work to model, 

 

In my opinion - it is a nice touch worth trying.

Game auto animates a pilots head...so no need for slot to animate it.... it does work..I forgot that when testing the Angel Interceptor I exported model with the pilot and it worked....also extra polys ?...its same when hes added as a single model...pilot plus plane = same amount of polysin game  lol...

will seperate as some might prefer another pilot....,no biggy just saves me time doing the pilot stuff seperate...ha ha

I mean you need an animation slot if you want to hide pilot on flightline aircraft.
