Pilots Speak ...

"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward."
- Amelia Earhart, Amelia Earhart Official Website

"If black boxes survive air crashes, why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?"
- George Carlin

The J3 Cub is the safest airplane in the world; it can just barely kill you.
- Max Stanley, Northrop test pilot

"We fly, but we have not 'conquered' the air. Nature presides in all her dignity, permitting us the study and the use of such of her forces as we may understand. It is when we presume to intimacy, having been granted only tolerance, that the harsh stick falls across our impudent knuckles and we rub the pain, staring upward, startled by our ignorance."
- Beryl Markham, West with the Night
