Typical piloting tasks don't require checks. Checks are required during combat
, for special
maneuvers, or in other extreme circumstances, or when the pilot wants to attempt something outside the normal parameters of the vehicle. When flying, the character can attempt simple maneuvers
(actions in which the pilot attempts to do something complex very quickly or in a limited space).
Each vehicle's description includes a maneuver modifier that applies to Pilot checks made by the operator of the vehicle.
A character can take 10 when making a Pilot check
, but can't take 20.
There is no penalty for operating a general-purpose fixed-wing aircraft. Other types of aircraft (heavy aircraft, helicopters, jet fighters, and spacecraft) require the corresponding Aircraft Operation feat
, or else the character takes a -4 penalty on Pilot checks.
