Not EVERYONE is predisposed to be a pilot. Take a hint........maybe buy a boat.
I'm going to take a little bit of issue with this, sorry. Not everyone HAS to be predisposed to be a pilot. If you don't have an ingrained talent for it you can certainly still do it; it might take a little more time and you might have to work a little harder, but I think pretty much anyone who doesn't have a medical disqualification can do it if they put the work in. Maybe the difference is you solo in 30 hours instead of 18, and you pass your checkride at 70 hours instead of 50, but you can totally do it.
100 hours just to solo? That's completely on the instructor. If it's because of something you're not getting or not making progress on, it's still on the instructor to figure out what it is, figure out a way to teach it, and EXPLAIN to you clearly exactly why you're not moving forward and what specifically you need to do to remedy that.
