So I finally got back to reading my Regulator Savvy again, and reading the lengthly section on the pilot reminded me of taking mine apart and puting it back together before knowing even what it was. After reading Savvy, and understanding how it works, I'm now even more fascinated with it. The thought that went into it. That its totaly different than all the other regulators that keep claiming they came up with something new. Herman, have you designed a tool yet so I can change the pressed oring softseat?

I am right with you on how interesting and innovative the Pilot is. I can't wait to get mine back in the water. They breathe just wonderfully. I am going to use my Pilot as the primary 2nd on my MK "Plus" and a Balanced "109" as an Octo.

I sold lots of MK7's with a 109 orange octopus and Pilot primary's with At-Pac's. They were very expensive setups back then.

Hey Big Guy,

I've just sent you a file to add to your library. It is a parts diagram for the Pilot with the o-ring sizes annotated onto it. This is for the original Pilot, not the converted to AIR 1 model.
A sincere THANK YOU to all at VDH who make this wonderful resource available and to all the thoughtful contributors.

Thank you, I'll get it uploaded tomorrow. Great addition to the files.
