They were not actually helmets ... they were leather caps that kept their heads warm, or kept sweat out of their eyes, and they had headphones built in to communicate with other planes, etc., and for engine noise suppression.

When a 300mph plane full of explosives hits a steel ship, or the water, a really good helmet MAY protect the head, but the body may be in multiple fragments.
