That said, none of us were born pilots and have been taught what we do--and therefore should be able to expand into different types of flying.
It's flying with a smile, not brain surgery. I was a Thunderbird and a good friend of mine flew Air Force Two. I'm pretty sure either one of us could handle smiling, shaking hands, have a conversation then take off and land. I would imagine they hire the personality more than the experience...within reason of course.
