Flying Safety for Dummies

leave a comment »

Don’t fly when the birds are walking…

Don’t be the topic of the next safety seminar…

Use superior judgment to avoid the use of superior skill…

You can only tie the low altitude record…

Stay in the middle of the air, avoid the edges and associated sharp drop off…

Always leave an hour of fuel in your tank, as well as the airplane’s tank…

“A man’s gotta know his limitations.” Dirty Harry

“Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.” Captain A.G. Lamplugh, 1930

Fuel is cheaper than funerals.

Planning and worrying is best done on the ground. Once you’re in the air it’s too late.

“It is possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill.” Wilbur Wright
