Considering that only ten percent of the population is left handed, there is a good reason why no air force has ever developed a left handed aircraft.

Though that said, a higher percentage of lefties are aviators than represent the general population.

I remember reading in "Chickenhawk" where Robert Mason is a lefty and his instructor was telling him how screwed he was. After he made it through flight school, he went back to the instructor and asked him about the comment. The instructor laughed, then asked the room of instructors "who here is left handed?" and about half of the instructors raised their hands.

While that might be true. One example, which might, or might not, be the result of a bit of artistic license, is little more than statistical noise without a much larger sample. One could just as easily say that the statistic only applies to Army aviators and be, apparently, equally correct.

25 percent of the early astronauts were lefties as well.

I don't have the statistics for the military or professional civil aviators, but if not common knowledge it is generally accepted that lefties are more representative in aviation when compared to the percentage in the general population. My theory is that being right brained helps with the spacial orientation and processing (being more visually oriented than numbers oriented). I know I could eyeball a bearing within a few degrees.

Of course, I was the exception: a leftie back-seater. I would be better served as a number cruncher, but such is life...
