Andr?'s father, who had raced at Indianapolis in 1912, finishing fifth, and taken third place in the French GP the same year, died when he was only three. Nevertheless tales of his exploits were to set the youngster on course for a career in motor sport.

After gaining some experience in the late forties with his own machines, Pilette joined the Ecurie Belgique, finally taking their Talbot to sixth place in the 1951 Belgian GP. Then, at the Dutch GP, he had the first of two huge accidents in which he was seriously injured (the second at Albi in 1952 wrote off the Talbot). He reappeared in Claes' Connaught at the Grand Prix at Spa in 1953, and then aligned himself with Gordini for 1954. He competed in only three Grands Prix, but raced in a good number of non-title races, his best results being second places at Chimay and Cadours. Back with his countrymen to form Ecurie Nationale Beige in 1955, Pilette ironically only found success in the Coupe de Paris in a Gordini.

The 1956 season started well, but then he had another bad accident in practice for the German GP, which sidelined him for nearly two years. He finished fourth at Le Mans in 1959, and then second in 1960 with Ricardo Rodriguez in a NART Ferrari.

In 1961 Andr? reappeared in single-seaters, with the ENB Emeryson-Climax, which proved a total flop, but, being a glutton for punishment, he was back in 1963 with an old Lotus 18/21 four-cylinder, before a final fling in the ex-Powell Scirocco in 1964. Subsequently he opened a racing school at Zolder which he ran until the late eighties.
