* Charlotte Yeager does this in ''StrikeWitches''; not surprising, since she's the DistaffCounterpart of the real-life Chuck Yeager.

** Brand new Air Hostess Tegan Jovanka too: "Ladies and Gentlemen, your flight is ready, please begin boarding." This would be after the air crew has managed to repair their Concorde which has crash landed in the Cretaceous. They call it ''Time-Flight'' for a reason.

* A non-pilot example: On ''{{Series/MASH}}'', Hawkeye is noted in-universe as staying "cool as a cucumber" in the OR no matter how many casualties and how bad the injuries he is having to deal with. If he starts sounding riled up at all, it's usually to get across to someone else the need for urgency, or anger either at who inflicted the casualty or who's making it hard to treat it, not panic. When he does lose his composure, it's always a case of OOCIsSeriousBusiness.

* In the Jack [=McKinney=] novelization of ''{{Robotech}}'', the pilots are all described as discussing their life and death situations in combat "as if they were talking about the weather", and lampshades this with an explanation that combat pilots are traditionally superstitious that displaying any worry or fear of death invites its attention.

[[folder:Advertising]] * [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]] in a recent Geico commercial with a pair of professional golf commentators who witness one player coming under attack by a Kraken in the pond. They never break out of their deadpan whispering and focus the bulk of their comments on how the monster's appearence is likely to affect the player's score for the hole. -->'''Commentator:''' "This course is electric."

* ''Every'' airman in ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4: ModernWarfare''. The best example is probably Outlaw 2-5, who responds to being told he's in danger of getting ''nuked'' with a deadpan "Copy, we know what we're getting into."

** Similarly with any of Glenn Morshower's characters: most of the pilots, as well as 'Overlord', 'Warlord' and the NORAD HQ controller in ''ModernWarfare 2''. The latter gets a disturbingly subtle hint of malice if you kill more than ten people in a single Predator Missile strike, though.

* During ''LukeSkywalkerAndTheShadowsOfMindor'', Luke commands part of a fleet during a battle. For most of it he's outwardly calm but quietly nervous inside, sure things are about to go wrong - when things ''do'' go wrong, he feels calmer and absolutely shines, soothing the alarmed crew, sending a message to repeat, setting up to pull off what most would call an impossible landing, and in general being low-voiced and "preternaturally" calm.

* The medical field actually requires a good amount of this. When you have a guy bleeding out big time, it doesn't help one bit if you're freaking out.

** And then there's the ComingInHot scene from ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', with Anakin as the calm AcePilot and Obi-Wan in full DeadpanSnarker mode: "Not to worry, we are still flying ''half'' a ship."
