    "Pull up, you're stalling!" No better choice of words to aggravate your flight instructor! Caution: may delay your flight review signoff.

    One last instruction to the test pilot;

    "Don't scream, it looks bad for the company."

    In my shop it's, "Make at least 3 to get 1 good one."

    I'm happy to report it's not quite absolutely true. (But sometimes worse)

    Can't have famous quotes without some from Bob Hoover:

    "If you're faced with a forced landing, fly the thing as far into the crash as possible."
    "Nobody said I had to crash."

    If I die in an airplane don't let anyone say I died doing what I enjoy. NOBODY likes crashing.

    My flight instructor before solo:
    "Don't f**k up and you'll be fine."

    It's been a mantra that I have often repeated to myself when flying.
