Are you Sinistral?

Over on an on-line forum that I frequent, a question has arisen about whether the prevalence of left-handedness in the pilot community matches that in the general population.

So, a somewhat unscientific experiment. Could I ask visiting pilots (only, please), to register their "handedness" (one vote each please!) on the widget at the top of the sidebar at right. I'll say up front that I expect to see no real difference between pilots and folks in general, but hey, that's why we do the experiment!

Always happy to help in the name of science, Frank!

Interesting. I'm not a current pilot, so I will not vote. Of interest, both parents, 3 of four grand parents and 2 of three sibs are lefties. A a right hander, I guess I'm the odd guy out in my family (not the first time I've heard this!) Plet us know your results.

I'm looking forward to the results as both a lefty and a private pilot.
