Throughout the unit's history many other pilots’ names appear in various sources. However this list does not include those that were not given an opportunity to make a single operational flight in 302. Some stayed there very briefly during the unit's rest period while others simply continued their training.

Should you have additional information concerning this list, and you'd like to contribute, please contact me by choosing E-mail in the main page.
