MaxThoughforToday: The Ace Sez!

The “Aviator” “Has to Know” ahead of time what his airplane will do and won’t do! when it will do it! and what to do about!

“Your always learning your Plane when you fly and it’s particular envelope, every plane and flight is different

The day you stop learning about your Plane is the day you quit or it KILLS YOU!”
