Which Famous Pilot Are You?
It’s easy to forget that flight has only been a reality for just over 100 years. Since the Wright Brothers first left the ground in 1903, aviation has developed at an astonishing rate. In this time, a number of interesting figures have flown planes. With so many colorful characters taking to the skies, you may be wondering which you most closely resemble. This quiz exists to work that out. Answer the questions ahead to find out which of the world’s most famous pilots you’re most like.
The kind of people who are drawn to aviation are always brave. But brave people tend to come with a range of personality quirks that make them unique. Pilot training can sometimes iron out those quirks when it comes to handling an aircraft. But they remain in other aspects of the pilot’s life, such as personal relationships. Because of this, the questions ahead relate to both flight and personality. Thanks to this approach, anyone who takes this quiz should get an accurate idea of which aviation pioneer they take after.
Aviation history may be short, but it's also packed with inspiring, unusual, and strange people. Famous aviators have shown the rest of us to push our boundaries. By being able to break the sound barrier, perform an emergency water landing, break speed records, and much more, the famous pilots that make up the results of this quiz prove that humanity is capable of amazing things.
Each famous pilot in the results is an American aviator. That's because the continental United States is the place where so many groundbreaking flight innovations occurred and continue to occur. Thanks to the United States Air Force, which is the envy of other countries' army air forces, and American commercial flight companies, flight training in America continues to be world-leading.
Of course, becoming a pilot is also no easy task. It takes a lot of work to get a pilot license. Any commercial airline pilot will have wracked up thousands of flight hours before they lead their first commercial flight. Of course, those who flew the first aircraft didn't need to worry. There was no pilot's license, let alone commercial pilot standards. You may be more in line with those haphazard early pioneers. Or you could be like one of the later flying heroes.
