5d MkIII Autofocus Question

I've been using the center point focusing on the 5d MkIII almost exclusively since I got it. For static objects or portraits, I'll use the single focus, then recompose. With moving objects I've been using the AI servo mode. My reasoning for this is that I'm nervous that the autofocus won't focus where I want it to.

I'm not sure if this is really the best method or not, it seems to me I should do this wotb portraits, focus on the closest eye then recompose. However, I do a lot of airplane wildlife photography, would I better off using the focus system differerently?

I guess I just need some advice on when to use the different autofocus settings.

Thanks
