Do Aerodynamics Expert and/or Protection Expert apply to the -bonus- stats from equipment? Obviously it does to the primary stats from Equipment, but does it apply to those bonus/extra stats?

Seems silly, I know, but I'm working on some equipment spreadsheets and my google-fu is failing me on finding the answer to this.

IIRC, it counts towards the bonuses as well.

That was my understanding as well, but the facts are a little thin out there.

Yea, you'd think it would be plain as day said somewhere.. but it could be just assumed that you'd assume that it applies to -all- positive stats.. and admittedly the way it reads it would -seem- to.

Thank you both though, it meshes with what I thought so I'm going to go with it barring someone being able to show it doesn't.

Yes, Pilot Skills should apply to all stats of equipment, including bonus stats. However, in-game stats shown in Hangar do not show any bonuses from pilot skills at the moment. We are planning to fix this in one of the future updates.

That would be ... kinda ridiculous in some cases.
ADE already is kinda OP for its cost/benefit analysis just with the standard gear enhancements.

Dive acceleration comes first to mind

But the next big deal is an advanced+ Booster.
Spoiler
 That makes for some big implications in vertical turn fighting.
(or for that matter anyone that likes to 'feather' the boost on certain cruise builds)

Last thing that comes to mind is that some of these Buffs (especially in the ultimate side of things)
are direct counters to the base nerf of equipment.
If ADE effected bonus stuff that makes things really interesting.
For example


 

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...

I've been trying to make a spreadsheet to enter base plane stats and all the modifiers just tick off so I can theorycraft equipment and pilot skillsets. I didn't even know that was a thing... huh. Good to know.

Also explains why some of my builds are better than others. I must be accidentally getting something complimentary going and not realizing it.

Aerodynamics Expert only affects maneuverability and speed. Protection Expert only affects durability and resistance to critical damage.
