In 1974, Palitoy released both the Action Man Helicopter and the Turbo Copter, but what’s an aircraft without a pilot? So in 1975, they decided to release their first Helicopter Pilot intended for both vehicles as well as the 1978 Combat Plane that came a few years later. 

A second version came out in 1981 with differences not only to his costume, but to the key figure itself. The flocked hair stuck, but they added an eye-catching element: Action Man with Eagle Eyes.
