Stupid Pilot Tricks
Everyone needs someone to look down on, but each year some of our fellow aviators make this need just too easy to fill. Perhaps itís a bit too easy to get and keep a pilot certificate.
If youíve been with us a while, youíll recognize our yearly foray into the bent and bizarre culled from a yearís worth of NTSB accident summaries (all non-fatal, of course). Not all are actually stupid. Some are just plain, er, strange. But all, we think, are worthy of note. Each year offers up those who think too much, those who think too little and those who donít think at all.
