People act like training is some magical thing. Training is nothing more than guided experience on a schedule. Intelligent people, it may surprise you, have experiences all the time, and being intelligent they can process those experiences into a useful understanding, gasp, without formal training!
I have lots of technical certs which I know a lot of people train for with classes and whatever, but I never took classes or read any books. I had enough unscheduled, unguided real world experience to just get the certs. Training isn't magical, it doesn't represent an exclusive path to knowledge and ability, so stop patronizing people.
You obviously do not understand the purpose of training, especially in the context of a pilot. When you're dealing with whatever issues covered by your technical certs, you are probably not under hostile fire, worried about crashing, while moving through a three dimensional space with potential obstacles, or anything like that. Pilots train so that they do things automatically. When you're 50 feet AGL in a helicopter and you get an Engine 1 fire you do not have time to flip through the procedure book to figure out how to cut the fuel, fire the extinguishers, and determine whether you can continue on with your mission, must abort and return to base, or whether you need to look for a clear spot to perform an emergency landing.
I used to work on helicopter simulators for the military. I can fly a simulator all day long and never have an incident. But I do not have the training I need to handle any sort of emergency situation, especially when my life is actually on the line. There is no comparison. The training is to simulate real world experience that you hope you never have to use. If these people just waited until they got ran into the "unscheduled, unguided real world experience" that you advocate most of them would likely be dead.
