Congratulations, you could definitely be a pilot! Not only do you have nerves of steel and the ability to think quickly on your feet, but you are as cool as a cucumber under pressure. You understand the velocity of a job where so many people’s lives are in your hands and it doesn’t stress you out in the slightest. Much like Captain Sully, you’re the pilot everyone wants behind the controls of a big jet.

You Could Be A Pilot!
You could potentially be a pilot! Let’s get one thing straight- you’re whip smart and clever. There’s no doubt that you could learn the controls with ease and navigate the world of piloting like a pro. Where you may come up short is the ability to work under pressure. While being a pilot isn’t always stressful, there’s always the potential for something to go wrong. With so many lives in your hands, could you keep your cool?

Pilot Potential
Well, you’re not ready to earn your wings just yet! Though you may love flying and have a deep interest in flight, you’re not quite the right type of person for the job. Sure, you’re smart and could definitely handle the controls, but you don’t have the right temperament or personality that a great pilot possesses. You don’t work well under stress, hate thinking on your feet, and aren’t exactly a big fan of pressure. Perhaps a lower stress job is better suited for you!
