Preflight check on EEX-ZA - Aquilla Microlight - 512

Some cool quotes that expressed flying better than I ever could:

"Man must rise above the Earth -- to the top of the atmosphere and beyond -- for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives." -- Socrates

"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." -- Leonardo da Vinci

"More than anything else the sensation is one of perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost, if you can conceive of such a combination." -- Wilbur Wright

"To put your life in danger from time to time... breeds a saneness in dealing with day-to-day trivialities." -- Nevil Shute, 'Slide Rule'.

"I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things . . ." -- Antoine de St-Exupery
