intriguing quotes about flying

"In flying I have learned that carelessness and overconfidence are usually far more dangerous than deliberately accepted risks." — Wilbur Wright in a letter to his father, September 1900.

"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." — Attributed to A. G. Lamplugh, British Aviation Insurance Group, London. c. early 1930's

things to check on preflight:
What - Weather
 Can - Controls
 You - Your Weight & Bal
 Die - Dipstick & Drains
From - Fuel
