- The achievement's name is a reference to a quotation by Taylor H. Miles: "Lord, I didn't train to be a pilot." Coincidentally, it is similar to a quotation by Edward Buck in regard to Michael Crespo: "Smart enough to be a pilot, but trained to blow stuff up."
- Oddly enough you have to get this achievement to finish New Alexandria. (Unless playing Co-op and different players destroy the AA Batteries)
- It seems that it is possible to earn this achievement from destroying any of the shade turrets found throughout the level.
