Top Ten Skilled Pilots from Star Wars Films

The Jedi ad Sith are notable, yes but one with the force is not necessarily more powerful than one with the spacecraft, and yes, some pilots on here do use the force. Here are the top ten most skilled pilots in star wars. Feel free to add your favorite pilot.

The Top Ten

1 Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.

Darth Vader/ Anakin is certain to win any space battle. At the age of 10, he took out an entire space station. He shot down nearly every rebel pilot in the battle of the death star. Need I more to say? - wren6

Lotta tempting choices here, but you are of course right, no one is topping Vader/Anakin. - Ned964


2 Han Solo Han Solo Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

He is so great at flying that he piloted the Falcon thorough an asteroid field, not to mention helping Luke destroy the death star. - wren6

" I have you now"... Until Han Solo swooped in to knock Vader out of the action. - Ned964

3 Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

He destroyed the death star with little experience of piloting an x wing. - wren6

4 Poe Dameron Poe Dameron Poe Dameron is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Introduced in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he is portrayed by Oscar Isaac.

"As long as it could fly, I could pilot it" - Poe Dameron. (I think that's how it goes) - wren6

Da best he blew up star killer base which is bigger than the Death Star he should be 1

5 Wedge Antilles

In almost every single battle luke was in, he was the top pilot in the alliance, and certainly deserves recognition - wren6

I think 4th is a good place to put him as he survived all of the major battles the rebellion had to face and although he isn’t as good as Han Solo,Vader or Luke he is the second best pilot of the rebellion

He survived the
battle of Yavin, The Battle of Hoth and The Battle of Endor.

6 Obi Wan Kenobi Obi Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

I know it doesn't speak to his piloting skills, but he also defeated Darth Maul, no small feat. - Ned964

Watch out for those Vulture droids, Obi-Wan - Ned964

7 Jek Tono Porkins

A joke? - wren6
