Dunning and Kruger's research also indicates that training in a task, such as solving a logic puzzle, increases people's ability to accurately evaluate how good they are at it.

I have about 100 hours experience of hang gliding and a frankly embarrassing one hour in a 737 simulator. I know I can't fly an airliner.
I believe there are many in high positions of power to whom the Dunning-Kruger effect applies.
however, this young man will end up in court and it is to be hoped that the court will receive an assessment as to his mental health and act in an appropriate manner.

Kids today grow up playing pilot on their pcs from the time they're 5. Why is it so strange for a teenager to assume he could fly the real thing?

The real issue is today's generation of kids. In my day, if you were going to steal a plane with zero flight training, first you stole a C150, then worked your way up to stealing a complex and multi, then turbines. Kids are so entitled these days they think they can graduate straight to stealing jets. Ridiculous.
