For All Pilots


Recommended Posts



1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.

2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull

the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling

the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again.

3. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

4. When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided

with the sky.

5. A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'

landing is one after which they can use the plane again.

6. You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power

to taxi to the ramp.

7. Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the

number of take offs you've made.

8. If all you can see out of the window is ground that's going

round and round and all you can hear is commotion coming from the

passenger compartment, things are not at all as they should be.

9. The three most useless things to a pilot are the altitude above

you, runway behind you, and a tenth of a second ago.

10. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the

experience usually comes from bad judgment.

11. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking

about might be another airplane going in the opposite direction.

Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide

out in clouds.

12. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to

make all of them yourself.
