Ok that qualifies the airplane but what about the Pilot. Is he considered a 3D Pilot if all he can do is hover?

No, I think that he has to be unable to hover it to be a good 3d pilot

Well, what if he can hover and harrier? Would that make the cut? What repertoire would make your cut?

There will probably always be somebody better than the next guy, so we boil down to just one 3D pilot in the world?

How about a pilot attempting 3D flight. How's that?

I think we are all 3D pilots. Some just don't a) know it or b) want to admit it

Heck, I was already a 3D pilot on my first few training flights many years ago (read very wild maneuvering by total noob that made instructor's heart skip many beats)

Cheers, RH../

I suppose if they are piloting a plane that would qualify them as a pilot. Chances are if they're piloting it, they're also in the third dimension.

If the old, crusty glow pilots at your field hate you, then you are a 3D pilot.
