* Averted in ''KerbalSpaceProgram'' due to fan opposition. Developers had proposed making experienced pilot Kerbals bring boosts to rocket engine performance. Negative reaction from the fanbase resulted in the idea being scrapped. Although the game still has it share of Aerody-whatsit, it's the same whatever Kerbal is in the command pod.

** One fan-created scenario based on DrStrangelove pits one ace-piloted Imperial Marauder, Space Marine Thunderhawk Gunship, or Tau Tiger Shark against an assortment of enemy interceptors and ground defenses in an attempt to maneuver through a series of canyons to reach a ground target. Needless to say, the bomber pilot has to be very, very good to pull it off.

Planes and most flying things tend to be fragile: if an unnamed character’s craft is so much as nicked by a slingshot's pebble, it will explode in a fiery conflagration. Not so the hero's craft, of course. Once he climbs aboard, any Personal PlotArmor he happens to be wearing is transferred to it and indeed quite possibly boosted. His craft may be missing a wing, so full of holes it looks like a sieve, and with one engine out, and he’ll still manage to shoot down five enemies with it before making an emergency landing. (Note that the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:B-17-battle-casualty1.gif B-17]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LveSc8Lp0ZE&fmt=18 Zivi Nadivi]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A-10_Thunderbolt_II the Warthog]] are TruthInTelevision.)

* An Israeli F-15 pilot, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LveSc8Lp0ZE&fmt=18 Zivi Nadivi]], refused to bail out after crashing with another plane during a training exercise, claiming he could still return his plane safely to base and land it. When he climbed out of the cockpit on the runway, he said he would not have hesitated to eject for a single second if he had know that he [[http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/2112723594_21abfbfcfc_o.jpg had lost an entire wing]]. When American technicans arrived to evaluate the damage, they assumed a truck had crashed into it while on the ground.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Hardwar}}'', you are the only pilot who has the skills to perform crazy stuff with your Moth in the Titan moon, even if you're flying the smallest and weakest Moth in the game. [[ArtificialStupidity All of the other AI pilots including the police don't have such skills and are restricted to flying predictable patterns of which you can easily exploit even in their best days]]. In multiplayer, though, expect the other human pilots to utilize the same flying skills as you do so don't get cocky.

*** Many quiet mentions are made of [[NumberTwo Tycho Celchu's]] piloting skills throughout the series, usually referring back to past feats, but the big example comes in ''[[JediAcademyTrilogy I, Jedi]]'' where he very nearly takes Corran apart with his AwesomenessByAnalysis style. Corran is not only an ace pilot, but a Jedi as well.
