EOD is one of the most technical job and their graduation rate is very low due to the high standards of exams/test requirements but good luck on your "lateral transfer" though
For one, do you speak for all pilots? While I agree with you that most pilots don't want to give up flying, you can't make a broad generalization as to what motivates people. Who knows, perhaps some want a career change and do something else. Also, what does being competent have anything to do with wanting to make a career change? Nothing.

And two, yes, being EOD is technical, but being a pilot isn't very technical? I bet they just let anyone fly fighter jets...
