Gary Anderson is right. Flying isn’t safe. But he’s also right that you have a lot of control over how safe. Not just when to fly (that’s true too!), but how to fly, where to fly, how close to things/others to fly, etc.. Decision making matters: More so in aviation than most other things.
I’ve done some serious distance. But I’m also teased about not going some places/altitudes that other pilots routinely go. I just don’t like the odds, so I don’t do it. And I’m ok with that.
The mountain will still be there tomorrow. Make sure you are too.
Fly High – Fly Far – Fly Safe
