Can you clarify my confusion
Pretty interesting question.
But please niote that evry job related to dealing with people will require you to be good at Interpersonal Skills.
When it comes to serving as a Pilkot.Please note, you would be communicating with:
Though you are not interacting with the passengers to a large extent, but definitely with the co-pilot and the technical team.

Hope this helps.
