IAAT pilots were one of the many Imperial pilots that served the Galactic Empire by piloting the IAATs of the Empire. IAAT pilots were trained to handle the power and speed of an IAAT to use its power at the max. They were also trained to know each and every control of an IAAT. For defense, they carry blaster rifles, concussion grenades, comlinks, and thermal detonators. They wore a blue jumpsuit with armor and had a helmet similar to an Imperial Land Assault Trooper.
