Flying Rules - Things Every Student Pilot Must Adhere To

sábado, enero 19, 2008

1) Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory.
2) If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller.
3) Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is dangerous.
4) It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there, than up there wishing you were down here.
5) The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
6) The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.
7) When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky.
8) A "good" landing is one from which you can walk away. A "great" landing is one after which they can use the plane again.
9) Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.
10) You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.
11) The probability of survival is directly proportional to the angle of arrival.
12) Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about might be another airplane going in the opposite direction.
13) Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide out in clouds.
14) There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.
15) You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience.The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
16) In the ongoing battle between objects made of aluminum going hundreds of miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose
17) Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, experience usually comes from bad judgment.
18) It's always a good idea to keep the pointy end going forward as much as possible.
19) Remember, gravity is not just a good idea. It's the law. And it's not subject to repeal
20) Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of takeoffs you've made.
21) The three most useless things to a pilot ?
a) altitude above you
b) runway behind you
c) 1/10 of a second ago.
22) Helicopters can't fly; they're just so ugly the earth repels them.
