The Pilots are both victims in Dead Rising 3.

They, along with all of the passengers on board die in a plane crash shortly after the game's beginning in Chapter 0.

Dead Rising 3Edit

During the game's opening cinematics, two pilots can be seen flying over Los Perdidos, with the first pilot complaining about having to fly over the infected city. The second claims that they are safe up in the plane, but is later proved wrong.

The second pilot begins to cough and shows other signs of turning into a zombie.When the co-pilot asked whats wrong the pilot replied that he was stung by some"strange bee" in the morning. The bee that stung him in the neck infected him. The first pilot, seemingly aware of his partner's fate, kills the man before he can turn. 


  • In a news update, it was stated that the plane crashed due to mechanical failure.Whether this was true or just to avoid panic on planes is unknown. 
  • It is possible that there was more than one infected person on board. This may mean that the TSA doesn't inspect people for infection when going on planes.
  • It's unusual that the pilot was able to shoot his partner, due to the fact that firearms are not allowed on board. It is possible that that pilots have to carry firearms in case of zombies.
