In some situations it seems clear when to use a pilot skill. You're behind the wheel of a car/boat/plane, you're teleoperating or jamming a bulldozer, etc. You'll always use your own perception and weapon skills, I imagine. But I'm a little iffy on certain examples. If I jam a plane, my skills replace the AI's. Do I use pilot or flight? If I want to avoid gunfire, do I use fray or pilot? I want to avoid detection, do I use infiltration or pilot? If I am in an exoframe and want to run, do I use pilot or freerunning since the frame is an extension of your body? On the one hand, I could see replacing most skills with pilot if you're teleoperating. It's like playing a video game, it uses a different set of skills than actually performing the act. But when jamming, it's different, and if you just max out your pilot skills you could be a badass at everything. So how do you handle it?
