Ten Commandments

Recommended Posts

Been killin' time going through the forums and learning and enjoying MUCH. Thanks to all those who contribute.

Speakin' o' which, on one of the post's there was a list of rules for flight ~ so I thought some might like

the Ten Commandments ...


1. Thou shalt abstain from the intersection takeoff, for

verily, the runway behind thee, as the altitude above thee,

cometh not to thine aid when thou needest them.


2. Thou shalt not linger on active runways,

lest thou become like unto ground sirloin.


3. Ignorest thou not thy checklists, for many

are the switches, handles, gauges and other demons

awaiting to take cruel vengeance upon thee.


4. Thou shalt cast thine eyes to thy right and also to thy left

as thou passeth through the firmament,

lest thy fellow pilots bring flowers to thy widow

and comfort her in other ways.


5. Buzzeth not, for this shall surely incur the wrath

of thy neighbors and the fury of the FAA

shall be called down upon thy head.


6. Thou shalt be ever mindful of thy fuel lest there be nothing

in thy tank to sustain thee upon the air and thy days be made short.


7. Trust not thine eyes to lead thee through the cloud

lest the Archangel Gabriel await thee therein.


8. Thou shalt not trespass into the thunderstorm

lest the tempest rend the wings from thy chariot

and cast thee naked into the firmament.


9. Put not thy trust in weather prophets,

for when the truth is not in, then they shall not

accompany thee among thy ancestors.


10. Often shalt thou confirm thine airspeed on final

lest the earth rise up and smite thee.
