Top Tips for Pilots

1. Every take-off is optional. Every landing is mandatory.

2. 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 back-then they get bigger again.

3. Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.

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

5. The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

6. When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky.

7. A "good" landing is one from which you can walk away. A "great" landing is one after which they can use the plane again.

8. You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.

9. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about might be another airplane going in the opposite direction. Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide out in clouds.

10. Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of takeoffs you've made.

11. 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.

12. If all you can see out of the windscreen is ground that's going round and round and all you can hear is commotion coming from the passenger compartment, things are not at all as they should be.

13. The three most useless things to a pilot are altitude above you, runway behind you, and a tenth of a second ago
