Things in /dev are not normal files; they are devices. Reading from such a "file" would actually pull data from the device — for example, by reading from a serial port — and writing to such a "file" would actually write data to the device.

If /dev/pilot does not exist on your system, I don't know by what means it is intended to have been created, but that's what you would have to find out.
