All Slavic: aviator hat, bomber hat

An aviator hat is a leather cap with ear flaps and fleece or fur lining. It is often wore with goggles in open-cockpit airplanes. The Polish wikipedia uses "Hauba lotnicza" or "pilotka" although pilotka means another type of military cap in Russian.

How is this type of cap called in your language?

    Czech: letecká kukla

    kukla = pupa, chrysalis, куколка (кукла is loutka, marioneta, panenka);

    Pilotka is a female pilot. However pilotka can be any pilot cap, often it is a fashion cap that resembles letecká kukla (e. g. zimní čepice pilotka). Pilotka also can be a pilot jacket (e.g. pánská bunda pilotka).
