    "If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter -- and therefore, unsafe."

    "When one engine fails on a twin-engine airplane you always have enough power left to get you to the scene of the crash."

    "Even with ammunition, the USAF is just another expensive flying club."

    "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."

    "Never trade luck for skill."
