A posh term for a gamer who plays video games that at least roughly fall into the flight simulation category. These games include X-Plane, Il-2 Sturmovik, Rise of Flight, Aces High 2, DCS: A-10C Warthog, Battlefield 4 and War Thunder. Virtual pilots who mostly play war oriented games often join a clan (labeled in the scene as "squad", "jagdgeschwader" etc) and subscribe to some form of fascist or spartan ideology.
Jack: I finally managed to take off and land without crashing. I'm a virtual pilot now!
