AviatorCast Episode 108: Sky Wars: The Last Pilot — 9 Flying Lessons from the Galaxy of Star Wars


Today’s Flight Plan

The epic battles, the last second saves, the crazy things we’d never do as real pilots — this is aviation/astronautics in the Galaxy of Star Wars. What can we learn from our flying friends from a Galaxy… far, far away?

In this episode I’ll share 9 lessons we can learn from the pilots, situations and attitudes of Star Wars.

We’ll answer questions like:

  • How did Poh learn to fly all those fighters, including the TIE Fighter?
  • How do we get a mechanic as good as a droid?
  • Are we all natural born flyers like Rey (or Anakin)?
  • How to keep a straight face like a TIE Fighter Pilot, even in the most intense situations.
  • Taking pride in our aircraft like Han takes pride in his Millennium Falcon.
  • Finding an awesome flying buddy like Chewbacca.
  • Why the best pilots in the Galaxy seem to fly the worst ships.
  • How to not rush a preflight like the Rebel/Resistance pilots.
  • Not losing your cool even when all seems lost, like when your planet is about to be destroyed by another object from space.
