1/ Mankind has a perfect record in aviation, we never left one up there. 2/ Every take-off is optional, Every landing is mandatory. 3/ Flying isn’t dangerous, crashing is dangerous. 4/ Airspeed, Altitude and brains. Two are always needed to successfully complete the flight. 5/ Never fly in the same cockpit with someone braver than you. 6/ It’s always better to be down here wishing you were up there, that up there wishing you were down here. 7/ The only time you have too much fuel is when you are on fire. 8/ When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky. 9/ A ‘good’ landing is one from which you can walk away from. A ‘great’ landing is one after which they can use the plane again. 10/ You know you’ve landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to taxi to the ramp. 11/ Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of take-offs you’ve made. 12/ 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. 13/ In the on-going battle between objects made of aluminium going hundreds of miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour. The ground has yet to lose.14/ When one engine fails on a twin-engine airplane you always have enough power left to get you to the seen of the crash. 15/ The three most useless things to a pilot are the altitude above you, the runway behind you, and a tenth of a second ago. 16/ The three best things in life are, a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement. The night-carrier landing is one of the few opportunities in life where you get to experience all three at the same time.
