''Pilot'' is a webcomic made by Website/{{Tumblr}} user Creator/{{Mx Bones}}. The idea for Pilot was first had several years ago, but it was shelved. After their ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' AU shut down, Bones brought Pilot back with reworked versions of the AU's characters.

Bones started stockpiling dozens and dozens of pages before releasing the comic, so that it wouldn't be too stressful to try and keep up with Pilot's once-a-week updates. After a few months of this, the comic began... and got to page 3 before computer problems deleted all the pages that had been finished. Due to real-life issues getting in the way, Pilot was on hiatus for several months, but as of September 2016, it seems to be on a semi-regular schedule again.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The number of characters only grows larger and larger over time. The characters page lists about forty or so. A fan's count shows that there are '''over four hundred''' characters that have been mentioned/designed/otherwise shown.
** As of 2017, the character count has reached close to one '''thousand''' publicly known characters, with still more rumored to not yet be revealed.
* NonHumanHead: The Objectheads have technology in place of actual heads. [=TVs=] are the most common, though radios and iPhones aren't unheard of.

* OlderIsBetter: Ahmad was a firm believer that his old cropduster, which he named the Dog-O, was just as good (if not better) than a conventional plane. He was famous for doing all his air stunts in an outdated plane instead of anything more modern.



* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Pretty much all robots in Pilot fall under this. Not in appearance, but in ''personality'' - if you were to interact with a robot without seeing its face, you would likely be unable to guess if what you were talking to was human or not. As Artman proves, they're advanced enough to even [[SexBot have sex drives and sexual orientations, as well.]]
* ShowWithinAShow: Numerous. Most of them are made by the fictional game company Lethal Grimalkin Productions (often just called LGP for short), though there are others made by other companies.
** According to Deo, most of the fictional games are other ideas for other comics that they had. They connect these ideas to Pilot so that they don't lose interest with it while they slowly redraw the lost pages.
* ThreeLawsCompliant: Asimov's three laws of robotics exist in the world of Pilot. The OB Mafia's entire existence makes it clear that not all robots are bound by them.
** Some doodles imply that robots aren't physically prevented from breaking them, but will be tracked down and shut off if they break the three laws.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Pilot is set in 2025. The most notable change in the world is that of the creation of advanced AI and robotics - robots are now commonplace, as well as having (apparently) full citizenship. Blank AIs can be obtained by the average citizen through unknown means, and then custom-tailored to fit their needs.
