The Rebel Pilot Flight Mask is one of the standard-issue pieces that equipped the pilots of the Rebellion and the New Republic. Designed to mate with the Rebel Pilot Flight Suit, the mask is created to conform to the head of a humanoid, although specially-modified examples for other species can also be found. When connected to the Rebel Pilot Flight Suit, the combination protects the pilot from vacuum. When the breathing tube is connected to the suit, oxygen is delivered via the suit from either the craft's life support system or the suit's built-in emergency oxygen canister. Its hard-shell construction offers the wearer a bit of protection from flying shrapnel and the shock of impact. The visor's main function is to protect the pilot from bright lights, especially that from a sun or a nearby explosion, but it also serves as a screen for the simple heads-up display system that provides navigational assistance.
