All this means is women pay less for insurance premiums on their helicopters.

Touché, MSgt (Join to see)!

But only those who fly Apaches, correct?

Sounds like a technicality that USAA may only be able to answer.

Finally, a category I can speak knowledgeably about.

So as a crewmember, I've had the privilege of flying with a good amount of pilots, and much like the statistics suggest, there were far more male pilots than female pilots. Of my small sample of female pilots, I've had some good ones, and some not-so-good ones. Of the men, I've had a more significant sample size to compare against and while there are certainly some men that are also not so apt at sick wiggling, I find that the sub-par females stick out more so than the males.

Now maybe that's just a small prejudice I have because the percentage of bad female pilots I've encountered is higher (small sample sizes skew numbers like that), or maybe it's some primal subconscious prejudice about woman car drivers and I'm simply transferring that association along to helicopters.

So I'm pretty sure I made a point, but now I just feel like I was rambling and drawing no conclusion at all. Sorry?

Nothing to be sorry for, SGT Darryl Allen. Your "rambling" makes as much sense as most of what else has been said. Right now, it seems to come down to a big "not sure".

I think perhaps your conclusion is that there is not enough data to form a conclusion, lol.

At least not yet, 1st Lt Matt A.. The available data is growing, so any conclusions have to be still evolving.

The focus should be more on dividing the enemy into unrecognizable bits rather than dividing our forces by insignificant details, such as which restroom the pilots use.
