This is sort of a trick question, as they technically didn't wear "helmets," but leather "flight caps" that covered the head and ears. These kept the pilots from getting too cold or going deaf while flying with their cockpit canopies open, which they sometimes did to get a better view when taking off, landing, or looking for landmarks.
Even if the kamikazes had access to the helmets of modern aviation, though, wearing them wouldn't be a pointless endeavor on a mission to crash their planes into American warships. If you're familiar with aviation or even gravity, you know that a pilot's helmet is not going to do much good in most crashes. A plane meeting another solid object abruptly normally results in death, no matter what the pilot has on his or her head. What a helmet, or even a softer leather flight cap, is good for is protecting a pilot's head from getting knocked by the cockpit canopy during high-speed, mid-air maneuvering, like the kind you have to do to avoid gunfire while nosediving into a ship.
Couple this with the fact that kamikazes sometimes had to abort their missions before the explosive finale due to turbulence, weather or visibility issues, and the pilots' protective headgear becomes much more apparent as an aid to help them complete their mission, not necessarily survive it.
Kamikaze pilots were not expected to return from what was a suicidal attack on the enemy.Most Kamikaze pilots had little training, nor flew decent aeroplanes.
There were 2800 Kamikaze pilots killed
the kamikaze pilots were japenese pilots that purposely crashed there planes into allied ships, commiting suicide.
No the Japanese Kamikaze pilots were a phenomenon of late World War II.
A lot, aat least 5,000. But all pilots were potential kamikaze pilots.
The mission of kamikaze pilots was to sink or damage Allied aircraft carriers and capital ships
hangglider pilots wear like these helmets well put it this way basically the same thing hang gliders wear well prbably :) mayb NT quite sure :):) hangglider pilots wear like these helmets well put it this way basically the same thing hang gliders wear well prbably :) mayb NT quite sure :):)
Japenese suicide pilots.
There weren't any kamikaze pilots in the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
U.S. war ships.
a kamikaze plane is a plane that the Japanese flew by suicidal pilots to sink US naval ships
all motorcyclists wear helmets, squids don't wear helmets.
their attacks were hard to defend against
