Interesting.  I would add information for this particular skill being a prerquisite for the classic Knight Hawks piloting skill... or at least some sort of alternate prerequisite set.

Ya think?

Yeah, you definitely need to redefine prerequisites if you're going to develop a new piloting skill. You may also need to redefine the KH piloting skill itself.

I've broken down the cost to gain Level 1 Pilot according to the KH rules. This is to open up the table for discussion. PCs with Tech skills can pilot jetcopters, hover craft and the like. At what point could they pilot a small fighter?

AD Skill Technician 6
Computer 2
Level 1 XP

Level 2 XP 8 (16)

Level 4 XP16 (32)
Level 5 XP 20 (40)
Level 6 XP 24 (48)
AD Total XP84
Pilot Level 1 XP

Typical module XP gain is between ____ ?

By my breakdown system, a Technical PSA character can acquire the pre-req piloting skills with a mere 18XP and the Pilot LVL:1 skill with another 10XP per the KH tables, for 28XP total
