  I am unable to put my old french pilots (now "Europe" pilots) into the P.38 Wilk I purchased with gold.  They are now in the same "nation" of "Europe", so why aren't the pilots interchangeable?  This is particularly bad since we are paying gold or dollars for the planes, but if we can't exchange the pilots they don't have the normal "crew training" benefits we expect from premium planes.  Even stranger is the fact that although I can't put an existing "Europe" pilot into my new "Europe" plane, I can re-brand as a some other nation such as Germany and put those pilots into it.  This makes no sense.  Make all "Europe" pilots work in all "Europe" planes.

I have confirmed the same behavior; I am unable to assign my original S-199 pilot to my french heavy fighter.

They got screwed over, plain and simple. My NC 1070 pilot and gunner are some of the more stalwart of my crew members and the aircraft must remain French for them to pilot.

 

At least they should be able to pilot planes of their nation AND qualification regardless.

 

(I guess technical limitation in pilot skins...)

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

You definitely have a point but this is how it works. "European" pilots are tied up to their original nation (French, Israeli, Polish, etc.), and you can switch the nation of your plane to any of the main nations (Germany, U.S.S.R., U.S.A., U.K., or Japan) but not inside the "Europe" nation, thus you cannot make your S-199 French, for example. All these new planes are united in terms of being in one "tech tree" and possibility to be sent to another nation, that is all they have in common. In terms of pilots, they are still separated nations. Though I would say it's a quite decent suggestion, still not a bug.
