 Pilot training   
It's not easy to become a pilot.   It requires a tremendous amount of focused consciousness.

It takes brains, attention to detail, courage, persistence, a lot of study, good health, and significant money.  
 Pilots must learn about aviation physics, navigation, weather, powerplants, aircraft types,
FAA regulations, and much more, in addition to learning the motor skills.
It also requires excellent judgment and critical decision making skills.
You must pass a physical, and various written and practical tests.

Aviation training can begin very young.    Some get their student pilot's license as early as age 12. 
There are many teenage pilots.   It's actually a good idea to start young for this type of skill.
These days computers play a major part in all flight training, especially for large, expensive aircraft.
Today's home flight simulators, like Microsoft Flight Simulator X, are hugely superior
 to FAA certified flight simulators of only 10 or 12 years ago.

Pilots must have a thorough understanding of how their aircraft works, its strengths and limitations.
There are hundreds of different kinds of aircraft, too, so pilots are typically checked out on one kind at a time.

Aircraft have many gauges and switches,
and pilots must know how every single one works,
 and when to check them.
