Default Pilot has no head?

I know it's pretty trivial, but I thought I'd bring this up because I've noticed it for a while.

In modules that have a pilot body in the cockpit, the dude doesn't have any noggin.

Any insights from people that do have one?

Asus Z170-P, i5-6600k at 4.5 GHz, 1.35V w/ CM Hyper 212 EVO, 2 x 8GB GSkill Ripjaws 4 @ 3000MHz 15-15-15-35, Zotac GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme Core Edition, EVGA SuperNova 750 G2 PSU, HP Omen 32" 2560x1440 single screen, Thrustmaster Cougar HOTAS fitted with Leo Bodnar's BU0836A controller.

Flying is the art of throwing yourself at the ground, and having all the rules and regulations get in the way!

If man was meant to fly, he would have been born with a lot more money!

Um, I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure YOU are the head!

Given te fact that body 3D model is not animated for full 6 DoF movement, with its torso bolted tight to the seat, having a severed head model floating around the cockpit would be even more messed up. A necessary compromise I'd say. Racing sims have headless drivers in VR as well.

if you wanna see what it looks like with the head, load a replay of an F14 flight then sit as Rio, you will be inside Jester's head and literally see through his eyes and what's inside his head
