I have decided on a German pilot. It wasn't an easy choice, but I feel the most comfortable with the Huns, because I know their military and aviation history in the Great War much better than any other nation. I almost picked a French pilot though! Maybe next time. It's a long war, after all.
Another question regarding the rules: is it *absolutely* necessary to start in the NCO ranks? I wouldn't want all of my pilots to follow the same relatively uncommon route of climbing from the lowest grades up to a company/battalion officer. So I was thinking about starting as a Leutnant. As you know, this is allowed in the other DID campaign.
If that's not possible, I'll just do it by the book.
