Aviation Tips 101

* It's best to keep the pointed end going forward as much as possible.

* Takeoff's are optional. Landings are mandatory.

* Flying is not dangerous; crashing is dangerous.

* If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger, if you pull the stick back they get smaller. (Unless you keep pulling the stick back -then they get bigger again)

* The probability of survival is equal to the angle of arrival.

* The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

* Every one already knows the definition of a 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. But very few know the definition of a 'great landing.' It's one after which you can use the airplane another time.

* You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi.

* Keep looking around; there's always something you've missed.

* Try to keep the number of your landings equal to the number of your takeoffs.

* Gravity never loses! The best you can hope for is a draw!

* Any pilot who relies on a terminal forecast can be sold the Brooklyn Bridge. If he relies on winds-aloft reports he can be sold Niagara Falls.

* Always remember you fly an airplane with your head, not your hands. Never let an airplane take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier.

* Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.

And Always Remember,

The propeller is just a big fan in the front of the plane to keep the pilot cool.

Want proof? Make it stop; then watch the pilot break out into a sweat.
