The Battle of Britain was an air battle and had no use for tanks unless they were used to subdue downed German pilots which would be a bad use for a tank.

Yes, many Czech pilots fought in RAF squadrons in the Battle of Britain and even in one almost completely Czech squadron. There were also Polish, Free French, Canadian, Australian , New Zealand South African and American pilots.

During WW2 many German pilots destroyed Spitfires. During Battle of Britain,many pilots were flung straight into battle having only flown 40 hours, often only 10 of those in Spitfires.

They faced a lack of experienced pilots and replacement aircraft. Many pilots going into action had less than 40 hours flight time.

Probably between two and three thousand. It is difficult to dig out information like this. But there were reported to be 1,103 British pilots on the roster, and some 1,450 German pilots coming after them, with the two sides tearing up the skies over England. You got a link to the Wikipedia article on the Battle of Britain. (That's where the numbers came from. And these are the fighter pilots and fighter aircraft. Bombers of the Luftwaffe are not included.)

In the Battle of Britain, it was all air vs. air. The British RAF against the Nazi's Luftwaffe. In the desperate battle the was the Battle of Britain, hundreds of RAF pilots died defending it, but German losses were much higher. RAF suffered hundreds. The Luftwaffe suffered thousands. That's impressive no matter who you ask.

The only aircraft that fought in Battle of Britain were British aircraft in RAF and German aircraft in Luftwaffe. The Italians had no part in the blitz or in the Battle of Britain.

Germany had an advantage of number of aircraft and advanced technology of aircraft design. Many German pilots had battle experience in Spain and earlier battles in Poland, France, North Africa.

The primary impact was that Great Britain's victory was also a victory for all of the Commonwealth nations. Many Commonwealth pilots flew British aircraft during that Air Battle in the summer of 1940.
