Some rules of the air for flyboys:
1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.
2. When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky.
3. The propeller is a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can watch the pilot start sweating.
4. The only time you have too much fuel is when you’re on fire.
5. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about might just be another plane travelling in the opposite direction.
6. You start out with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before emptying the bag of luck.
7. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. Unfortunately, no-one knows what the are.
