Are Left Handed Pilots Better than Right Handed Pilots?
Are Left Handed Pilots Better than Right Handed Pilots? According to Vaughn College, left-handed pilots are more prevalent in the aviation industry than one may think. Since about 10 percent of the population is left-handed, it makes one wonder why a large percentage of pilots are also left-handed, as many as 40 percent according to those in the field. This disproportionate ratio raises the question, “Are the challenges the same for right-handed pilots compared to left-handed pilots?”
In honor of International Left Handers Day, we are recognizing the "lefties" who are commandeering the skies and touching down on any challenges they face.
