This hurts me to report because it helps me considerably, but I can't in good conscience say nothing.  I've got the special pilot for the Spitfire Ia, and it appears that his added bonus appears to be working on more than just the Spitfire Ia.  When I drop that pilot into my Mustang Ia, my 360 degree turn time drops to 10.2 seconds.  The pilot has Aerodynamics expert.  If I put the 100% pilot from my Hurricane I, with both Aerodynamics Expert and Aerobatics expert, the 360 degree turn time is 11 seconds.  With no pilot at all, the 360 degree turn time is 11.7 seconds.


I currently have the Ia pilot trained to my Spitfire XIV, and that plane will currently out-turn my A7M.  If I remove the pilots from both my A7M and Spit XIV, the XIV changes to 8.6, while the A7M changes to 8.  With the Ia pilot in my XIV, and my Hurricane I pilot in the Ia, the XIV has a turn time of 7.8 and the Ia has a turn time of 8.3.


I cannot think of any reason at all, that the Hurricane I pilot should not make the aircraft turn better than the special Spitfire Ia pilot does, other than the possibility that the Spitfire Ia mastery bonus is being improperly applied to airplanes other than the Spitfire Ia.

Check on this and report back after the patch tomorrow - it's possibly just an error in number display related to the known bugs with the number display from crew stats.
