    Who is the best pilot in the Star Wars universe? I thought the discussion would be more interesting if we exclude Force-users with enhanced skills (Anakin, Rey).

    IMO the best three (non FS) pilots are:
    - Han Solo
    - Wedge Antilles
    - Poe Dameron

    I don't know who's the very best though.

    Poe Dameron- the escape from the Finalizer was one of the most epic sequences in space.

    I'm gonna go with Han, but Poe is certainly a close second. I'd also include Wedge as an honorable mention, but he hasn't had as much of a presence in Canon as he had in Legends.

    In TLJ we can clearly see it's the walking carpet.

    These would be my top 3 also, definitely Wedge Antilles above Poe.

    Poe Dameron for sure. I’d say that he’s the best X-Wing pilot we’ve ever seen in Star Wars, as he destroyed a dozen TIEs in one swoop on Takodana, he was the one to ultimately blow up Starkiller Base, and he destroyed all of the turrets on the First Order Dreadnought, even while he was being pursued by TIE Fighters. And that’s only while he was piloting his T-70 X-Wing, Black One (RIP).

    As he proudly tells Finn in The Force Awakens, he can fly anything and we’ve seen this to be true so far. He was able to expertly handle a TIE Fighter when he escaped from the Finalizer, despite never being in one before, and he also pulled off some crazy stunts in his comic series. I’m sure Poe will continue to amaze us with his piloting skills in TROS.

    Han Solo is a close second for sure. With with his co-pilot Chewbacca, Han did the impossible by navigating through the Akkadese Maelstrom, making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs (when you round down), aiding Luke in destroying the Death Star, is one of the few pilots to face Darth Vader and live (though the Falcon suffered major damage afterwards), piloting through the Anoat Asteroid Belt with relative ease, hiding the Falcon on the back of a Star Destroyer before dumping its garbage and managing to land on Starkiller Base without being detected. Unlike Poe however, I’d said Han’s feat hinge more on luck than skill.

    I pick Poe because he did what’s Dac said he wanted to do.

    The most impressives maneuvers were made by Poe in the battle of Takodana and in the assault against the dreadnought. My vote is for Poe.

    Poe is the best non Force user pilot in the galaxy, and it isn't close.

    Mr Antilles begs to differ. Only pilot in the Galaxy with 1 Death Star Kill, 1 save of a force-user pilot (so he could get a Death Star kill), and the only successful "harpoon and tow cable" kill of an AT-AT.
