Try to stay in the middle of the air. Do not go near the edges of it. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there.

Never let an airplane take you somewhere you brain didn't get to five minutes earlier.

Believe your instruments and fly it till the last piece stops moving.

A fool and his money are soon flying more aircraft than he can handle.

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

Bob Hoover

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.

The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap"

Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, experience usually comes from bad judgment.

What is the similarity between air traffic controllers and pilots? If a pilot screws up, the pilot dies; If ATC screws up, the pilot dies.

The worst day of flying still beats the best day of real work.

Flying the airplane is more important than radioing your plight to a person on the ground incapable of understanding it.

In flying I have learned that carelessness and overconfidence are usually far more dangerous than deliberately accepted risks.

Wilbur Wright

If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again.

Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.

Captain A. G. Lamplugh

Truly superior pilots are those who use their superior judgment to avoid those situations where they might have to use their superior skills.
