We’ve seen a fair share of space battles... who is the best pilot?

Perhaps it’s rocket... and that’s that

Between Star-Lord and Rocket. From what the movies seem to imply, they're both roughly equal.

Thor. He’s a natural. Only flew a ship twice. Survived both times.

Nebula is 2 for 2 on perfectly crashing a ship and not dying so

Probably Rocket by feats regarding spaceships. Regarding planes it's probably May.

This, plus it should be noted that the show made a point about how quickly Melinda May picked up on piloting a super-advanced Kree spaceship as well. She moved through a ton of floating debris with it on her first try without making a single mistake.

May's also pulled off some ridiculous stunts in season 2, like when she played dead with that Quinjet to fool HYDRA's radar. Or how she maneuvered the Bus out of an assault from Whitehall's unmanned aircraft.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and she flew the Zephyr One through a gravity storm.

@stahlflamme: Yeah, that was also ridiculous. Might be her best showing of piloting skill.

Yeah, either May or Rocket. Of course, Feige will say Carol. And she could possibly be.

Rocket Raccoon or Star Lord.

Smh at the AoS fanboys.

By feats - Rocket or Quill, Thor and Melinda May are honorable mentions

Toss up between Rocket and May.

Really depends on the craft.

@subline: You haven't even watched the show (especially s5, which possibly contains May's most impressive piloting skills). Stop whining.

Star Lord is pretty much Rocket's equal so it doesn't matter who between the two.

@godzilla44:

Take that and multiply it by the fact that Rhodey is the only pilot in the MCU to have officially survived his entire dogfight career. Everyone else is TBD

If we're counting Tony, dude's number 1 for sure.

I mean, I doubt OP had "armor piloting" in mind.

That said, Agent May.

Ebony Maw. He can pilot the Q-ship, which takes both Spiderman and Iron Man to operate. They failed to stick the landing. Amongst the Avengers, nobody except Thor and Hulk could even operate the controls by themselves, and they would just make a mess of things. May would probably pull a tendon trying to operate it.

If we ignore the Q-Ship's difficult controls, then Star Lord/Rocket is arguably the best pilot. Even then, piloting probably isn't that difficult to begin with. Many people like Thor and Banner just seem to pick it up. If Agent May could do it, almost anyone can do it.

This.

If we're talking about physical/suit flying then it would be Carol then Tony. You could argue that Tony should be ahead of her but she's not only got the experience of ship flying but she naturally flied in the same way through her powers while Tony had issues as well as having Jarvis as a backup in case he screws up.
