Pretty sure you fly planes as a pilot. If you're driving vehicles, you're a terrible pilot or are actually a MSE Op.

That question is asked and discussed here from time to time,

"so you can choose which airplane you want?"

"Can you choose what kind of aircraft you'd like to be trained in/fly full time?"

Do you have a choice between fighter/helo/multi ???

Even that wording is kind of ambigious. It sounds like the RCAF is actually giving an a/c to the pilot.

As if their egos weren't big enough..
