How to use pilot in a sentence?

  1. Bob Forrester:

    Here you have a young man who volunteers to go to war to help preserve the United States and United States opportunities, at the same time, he thinks he’s going to be a pilot but has the bad luck of not being a pilot because of his blue eyes, or his color blindness. Which also happened to be one of the things that got him such good movie roles, aside from being a great actor, of course. But it was his experience out there that made him realize the difference between people was circumstance.

  2. Steve Zahn:
