I don't see the point, unless you can control an aircraft.
Else you might as well call it Scout/Reconnaissance Unit. That would maybe even allow for some healing aspect. Pilot is too defined. I would find it silly if I played a class called Pilot and never ever had an aircraft I could use at the same time.
It makes so little sense to me.
Hunted, do you mean in the sense of there being an expansion at some time, introducing space flight?
