* 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' has Launchpad [=McQuack=], who has the CatchPhrase "If it has wings, I can crash it." He can fly anything - even live animals, untested technology, and [[Recap/DuckTalesS1E4WhereNoDuckHasGoneBefore alien spaceships with controls not designed for his species]] - with excellent skill. [[CaptainCrash The only thing he can't do is land.]] He appears to have overcome this problem by ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', or else maybe the [[CoolPlane Thunderquack]] just has auto pilot landing skills, or a thoroughly reinforced hull.

* ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}, leader of the Comicbook/{{X-Men}}, and one of the best pilots in the Marvel Universe. Remember, he's ''colour blind'' (those special glasses/visors he has to wear to control his EyeBeams leave him seeing everything red-tinted), but apparently his ImprobableAimingSkills, which are officially part of his power, allow him to maneuver better at the seat of a plane than a normal person. When he isn't leading the X-Men, he's usually working as a civilian pilot of some sort. This also seems to run in the Summers family. His grandfather Philip was an AcePilot in WorldWarII. His father Christopher was an Air Force and NASA test pilot elite enough that he was one of the only a few dozen pilots chosen to fly the SR-71 Blackbird (appropriately enough Cyclops later pilots the X-Men's own Blackbirds, the original version of which was a modified SR-71), before [[AlienAbduction being abducted by aliens]] and becoming the SpacePirate Corsair.

* 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.
