The issue with helmets is that you need to know what you are trying to protect against.
Not many aircraft i know of have padded instrument panels... and sadly there are a few good men and aviators that might still be with us if they wore a helmet.

even an engine failure and subsequent sudden stop on landing if you hit something can prove fatal after getting the AH embedded in your forehead.
