HeavyArty has been curating this thread on the various help crew figures on the market. Helo crew figures

Depending on what you're looking for, some will be harder to find than others....Google and ebay might be your best bet in tracking some of them down.

The Bravo6 and Evolution figures can be found at http://highcalibreminiatures.com and

They are certainly available in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/35 scales that I am aware of.

I'm sure you will get a better response and more direst advice if you specify what scale you are looking for.

As Sherb posted, I cover pretty much all available in this thread. For a modern helo like the Chinook, depending on which version (A or D), the best figures for a D are the modern UH-60 pilots from Reedoak. They would actually be the best for any of the modern helos you list. The Kiowa (MRC/Academy OH-58D) comes with the best modern pilot figures in plastic right in the kit.

Also, forgot to add, you can update any of the other figures with the latest helmets (HGU-56/P) by using the Live-Resin heads also shown in that post.

Additionally, be sure to check out the Rotary Wing Forum on Aeroscale, the aircraft brother of Armorama. There are lots of great posts with lots of helo info and knowledge there.
