Do you mean first flight in the specific aircraft or first flight of the day or what? Purchased both packages....no pilots. Flew the BF109 E-3 and still no pilot. I do not own 1 of the pilot trained aircraft (BF110 E) and already owned the Spitfire 1A was compensated 3000 gold, not 2000. Will this cause me trouble or will the pilots simply appear in the barracks or do they need you to own the aircraft they are trained in and the pilots will appear in them? A little clarity would be nice.

You need to play a battle after buying a bundle. Pilots appear in barracks, so please check them carefully. You don't need to own aircraft the pilots are trained for, you will still receive the pilots.

 

You've received 2000 gold compensation for the Spitfire 1A, 1 000 gold is included in the bundle.

These pilots have been on my wishlist for a while. Blindfold, thank you for delivering!

it's both noteworthy and unusual that the Brit female pilot is MIA.     

Did we hear anything about that before now?       Did she get fired?       Pregnant?

I've heard from a friend of mine...

that she was ousted from the family for her modern attitude

.

dog save the queen

...

a corgi I believe

a stout breed

like Gimli (son of Gloin) but with four legs

:unsure:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Was there ever one?  I believe the forum called for one, but I don't remember WG ever putting one in the game.

There was no bloody Brit bird pilot.  A bit of a dodgy affair blokes? Let's not be about a kerfuffle, or throw a wobbly, mates.  It would be right scrummy if we did have a Brit bird in a  cok pit., Don't be a wanker.  Just stiff upper lip it, quaff a pint, and carry on! Cherry oh!

I just checked my barracks after first purchasing the bundles, then flying a battle in my Yak-7 M82  I tried again in my goldfinch.  I do not see the pilots.  Oddly enough, the x3 identifier is also failing to update.  I've restarted and tried another Yak 7 game.  That also did not get my pilots, nor did it use up my x3 bonus on a win, so I assume something is wrong with the updates.

no British female pilot, huh?   Just look at this link for the sale on female pilots in Aug 2018

 

I was wrong.     I could have sworn there was a Brit female, too.   

I must have dreamed it.     nothing wrong with that

Well, actually this is the wrong forum to discuss those kind of dreams.  But dream on!

I purchased the best of the best bundle. I already have Marina, but wanted Mary and Charlotte. I received all the goodie crates, that's no problem. But I've yet to receive Mary or Charlotte. I bought the bundle around 0741 my time; as of this writing, its 0949, so it's been over two hours and no female crews. I've logged in and out, played a couple battles, still nada. I was going to submit a ticket, but when you try to put the date of purchase on the ticket, it won't let me put the correct date; ie, I purchased it today on the 18th, and the ticket calendar only lets you select up to the 17th. So, I'm at a loss as to what to do now. Again, I did receive part of the bundle by getting all the crates, and they are good btw. But still no females. Any input on here would be appreciated.

I would bet that this issue will be soon fixed although possibly not on a weekend.  Whenever multiple players start reporting this kind of problem, their revenue stream goes down.  GL!

Well I was either awarded or they were part of a bundle for these 3 pilots,but didn't have the aircraft, to place them in.

So they were retrained and placed in one of their country planes. 

Now that I have all 3 types of planes, I purchased the bundle to place them in those specific aircrafts.

Instead of receiving those 3 ( level 7 pilots), was given a CRATE  for ea. 

I do not agree with your logic that....  3 crates are an ….equal swap for 3 level 7 pilots. 

If your answer to the 3 missing pilots from my purchased  bundle is : " you already have them in other planes", then you need to come up with a better offer then a " single Crate ".:facepalm:
