As a pilot I can confirm this statement. It's common knowledge in the aviator realm.

In fact, there's a strong correlation between the competency of a driver and their ability to fly a plane. So you can guess who the next worst group is.

Women. Though there are of course some good ones. Just like the north Vietnamese were famously good pilots. But on the average... Ack.
