I know this has been said before but I think it still should be implemented. Most people never bother going for the pilot kit but instead run directly to the planes. The effect of this is that if you want a plane you have to take it without a pilot kit otherwise some one else will.
so how will having a wrench solve this?
yeah, I mean with a wrench the pilot kit would be alot more usefull, and more people will use it.

A lot of people like to land and fix. I dunno if I like the idea, although I can understand the reasoning behind it. I'd rather have a pilot kit that's required to fly planes, but I guess that's not possible. I think it's kind of a tradeoff--either you survive being shot down some of the time, or you're able to fix your plane yourself. I like the compromise.
I guess the idea is that people should bother with a pilot kit, but don't just so they can get to the plane faster. Solution? Learn to pick up kits while running 8)
i dont see that, you only get a pistol with that kit. unless your flying and want to be able to parachute. its not the best kit to ground pound with. but a wrench is still a good idea, because i land out in the boonies many times as engie to repair my plane. :D it would be nice to be able to do that as pilot. i usually go engie tho, if im planning to fly. just for that reason, plus if i end up on the ground i can still fight. but mainly i take it for the wrench to repair.
pilot kits are very rarely that close to the planes. And one other thing, on maps with both paratrooper kits and pilot kits, why would anyone pick a pilot kit?

I don't think any reallife pilot would land in the field to repair his plane, at least not while it is still capable of lying
untrue, there were the odd pilot that landed in a field or desert to repair. but only if the plane was not gonna make it home. this cant be modeled in fh1, your damage meter no matter how low, doesnt effect the planes performance. fh2 however :D
I'm too cool to Post

If the wrench had a really long recharage time, and only a little bit that he could repair, than I like the idea. Reason I said what I did is because those features would simulate the limited mechanical knowledge and even more limited resources to fix the plane.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Sad but true.
I'd like to see airfields with a passthrough repair hangar that you can taxi through and airfields well-designed enough that you can land and taxi and repair/rearm without taking up the whole runway.
