I have developed sensitivities to several chemicals used in aerospace. I have to make a shift away from our industry, so I would like to know what are qualities in aviators that would be unique and set us apart from other candidates in a good way. One that immediately comes to mind is our respect for inherent risk. What other tacit knowledge or soft skills apply?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
I'm just asking but, have you thought about teaching PPL/ATPL? It's obviously not the same income as a pilot (usually), but you still keep in 'our industry' which I'm sure you really like the most.
Sorry about those sensitivities...
