what does "pilot" mean in romanian?

Postby luffarungen » 2017-02-23, 17:48

I met a poor homeless romanian speaking man today on the streets and he told me he needs money so that he can buy a "pilot". He seemed to point to a duvet/quilt that someone else had so i guessed that this is what he meant.

When i tried to use google translate later on to find out what "pilot" means in romanian, i didn't get much help. So i was wondering if someone here knows anything about it? If i find out what he actually mean, I thought that I would buy one for him seeing as it is freezing outside

I'm pretty sure the word is "bilet" which means "ticket" (usually bus ticket, in this particular case).
Especially for a person that doesn't have an astonishing pronociation, these words are pretty similar.
"Pilot" - hmm, it just seems very unlikely. It means: "flight commander" or "trial, experimental" (as in "proiect pilot" - trial project).
All the best!
