When a flight is proceeding incredibly well, something was forgotten.

The only time an aircraft has too much fuel on board is when it is on fire.

If you can't afford to do something right, then be damn sure you can afford to do it wrong.

Just remember, if you crash because of weather, your funeral be held on a sunny day.

I hope to either take up a parachute or stay out of single engine airplanes at night.

Never fly the 'a' model of anything.

Keep thy airspeed up, lest the earth come from below and smite thee.

When a crash seems inevitable, endeavor to strike the softest, cheapest object in vicinity, as slowly and gently as possible.

Always keep an 'out' in your hip pocket

The cub is the safest airplane in the world; it can just barely kill you.

A pilot who doesn't have any fear probably isn't flying his plane to its limit.

If you're faced with a forced landing, fly the thing as far into the crash as possible.

If an airplane is still in one piece, don't cheat on it. Ride the bastard down.

Though I fly through the valley of death I shall fear no evil for I am at 80,000 feet and climbing
(Sign over the SR-71operatons area at Kadena AB, Okinawa)

You’ve never been lost until you've been lost at mach 3
(Paul F Crickmore)

The emergencies you train for almost never happen. It’s the one that you can't train for that kills you.

If you want to grow old as a pilot, you've got to know when to push it and when to back off.

Never fly in the same cockpit as someone braver than you.

There is no reason to fly through thunderstorms in peacetime.

Life is simple. Eat, sleep, fly.

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 chances to experience all three at the same time.

A DC-9 captain attempts to check out the glass cockpit of an A-320. Now he knows what a dog feels like watching TV.

It takes only two things to fly. Airspeed and money.

What is the similarity between air traffic controllers and pilots?
If a pilot screws up, the pilot does.
If atc screws up, the pilot does.

It’s better to break ground and head into the wind than to break wind and head in to the ground.

The difference between flight attendants and jet engines is that a jet engine usually quits whining when it gets to the gate.

A copilot is a knot-head until he spots opposite direction traffic at 12 o’clock, after which he a goof-off for not seeing it earlier.

Without ammo the USAF would be just another expensive flying club.

Unknown landing signal officer to carrier pilot after his 6th unsuccessful landing attempt: “you’ve got to land here son, this is where the food is.”

New FAA motto: “we’re not happy ‘till you’re not happy”

You begin flying with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before the bag of luck runs out.

Pilots, like many things in life, only get better with age.

Any idiot can get an airplane off the ground, but an aviator earns his keep by bringing it back anytime, anywhere, under any circumstances.



take your pick. i don't remember where i got these.

Silly me. I thought that perhaps US education had gotten serious and the instructor would be looking for something such as this.

Benjamin Franklin Quote
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Quite appropriate today I think.

Oh well, mental pablum seems to be the order of the day. Can you say "would you like that double sized?" We are raising a generation of unquestioning fools in the US I'm afraid.

If you wake up and you have no problems, check if you're not dead - another one.

Marriage is like Communism - works great on paper, fails miserably in practice -Superfly.

Compare a dick to a finger - Russian saying.
