Star Army of Yamatai pilots are carrier-based soldiers that operate manned fighters and bombers, as well as shuttles and some small starships. Note that Power Armor is not piloted - it is worn by (typically by Star Army Infantry), and there is not a “power armor pilot” specialty in the Star Army (although these used to be, when power armor was first introduced). Pilots wear the Star Army Aerospace Flight Suit, Type 32.

The pilots have been in service since the beginning of the Star Army of Yamatai. They are able to fly fighters, bombers, civilian shuttles to some small starships. They have been seen in most if not all known wars throughout Yamatai Star Empire history. They are seen as an essential part of the Star Army of Yamatai.
Training for pilots is handled by Star Army Training Administration as they used to report at Fort Hanako which got destroyed by the Kuvexian forces in the Kuvexian War, they are now to report at the temporary pilot school at the base of Fort Hajime. There they learn the basics and advancement of flying in spacecraft and be able to get their pilot certification.
