In this post, you will find great Airplane Quotes from famous people, such as Michael Trucco, Barbara Bush, Alan Shepard, GloZell, Henry Rollins. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
The pilot looked at his cues of attitude and speed and orientation and so on and responded as he would from the same cues in an airplane, but there was no way it flew the same. The simulators had showed us that.
Most of the writers in TV are from L.A. or New York, and those are places where people are cynical and snarky. And they fly from L.A. to New York in an airplane over this vast, expansive land where people aren’t snarky; they’re a lot more like the ‘Parks and Rec’ characters.
I spent about seven years during the Vietnam War flight-testing airplanes for the Air Force. And then I went in and I had a lot of fun building airplanes that people could build in their garages. And some 3,000 of those are flying. Of course, one of them is around-the-world Voyager.
Well, ‘aerospace‘ was really not a name in my young life. Flying airplanes was. And I got my first try at flying – just pure flying – by flying my ‘Superman‘ cape off my daddy‘s barn when I was about 5 years old.
I used to jump out of airplanes. I was a member of the 101st Airborne Division. When parachuting, you never look down at the ground. You feel for it with your legs. Your knees are your shock absorbers – you cannottighten them. Same as skiing.
For me, being in a car or on an airplane is like being in limbo. It’s this deadzonebetween two places. But to walk, you’re some place that’s already interesting. You’re not just between places. Things are happening.
I like that they call it an airplane cabin. A cabin is where you go to get away from stress. The cabin is a respite from the terminals on either end of the flight where noise bombards you as soon as you walk through the gate.
Regardless of how me or this man right here or anybody else in this business get, when we walk on an airplane in first-class looking like this, we’re gonna get searched.
Flying through a hurricane is the most fearsome shaking you will ever get. Everything has to be tied down in the airplane. And the IMAX camera has to be rock-steady through all this. We had to design special mounts on the left and right sides of the cabin and in the cockpit to hold the cameras.
So I called and said, ‘Mommy, I’m doing a political film with Jean-Luc Godard. You have to come and sign the contract.’ She thought I was lying, so she hung up the phone. But then she came the next day, even though she had never taken an airplane in her life. She came to Paris and she signed my contract.
I really find that when I get on an airplane, I never drink anything but water, and I drink a ton of it. I like to sit in the window, but I’m always climbing over people to go to the bathroom. I’m that seatmate. But ya gotta do it. All about the water.
I love playing. If it was down to just that, it would be utopia. But it’s not. It’s airplanes, hotel rooms, limousines, and armed guards standing outside rooms. I don’t get off on that part of it at all.
As a Middle Easternmale, I know there’s certain things I’m not supposed to say on an airplane in the U.S., right? I’m not supposed to be walking down the aisle, and be like, ‘Hi, Jack.’ That’s not cool. Even if I’m there with my friendnamed Jack, I say, ‘Greetings, Jack. Salutations, Jack.’ Never ‘Hi, Jack.’
If I could trade places with any of my sisters for a day, it would be Kim. I want to see what it’s like… The only time she sleeps is on the airplane. It’s just crazy. I feel bad for her, but I still want to know what it’s like.
I don’t really have any peeves, and I fly other carriers a good bit. My experience has been good in terms of getting on the airplane expeditiously and getting to my destination as need be, on time, with my bags – which I carry on.
I can write anywhere. I write in airports. I write on airplanes. I’ve written in the back seats of taxis. I write in hotel rooms. I love hotel rooms. I just write wherever I am whenever I need to write.
I love e-books. I can carry the complete works of WilliamShakespeare around with me all the time. Just think about that. Whether I’m on an airplane or wherever. Being able to have a library in your back pocket basically is something I support.
I was a pilot and flying hang gliders, paragliders, aerobatics airplanes, and then I discoveredskydiving. Free fall. Free. With nothing around you, just a parachute on your back. And you go down. But you don’t feel like you’re going down. Totalfreedom.
Every time I get on an airplane I have a routine. I cover the inside of my nostrils with anti-bacterial ointment. I’m popping Zicam like it’s candy. And I drink, literally, from L.A. to New York, six bottles of water.
I’ve spent my life as an airplane mechanic, pilot, aircraft manufacturer and airline CEO who never lost a life or an airplane. I am considerate of the risk we take every time we fly. I also know we need to fly and always to improve safety.
I went to the University of Washington as a physics and astronomymajor. My other interest, of course, was aviation. I always wanted to be a pilot. And if you’re going to fly airplanes, the best place to be is the Air Force.
‘Scary Movie’ was a different type of comedy than I’m used to. I’ve mostly done sitcoms, so working with David Zucker, who wrote the film and who directed the last two ‘Scary Movie’s and ‘Airplane’ and ‘Naked Gun,’ was a lot of help.
Ever since I bought and started flying an airplane, it’s been almost exclusively for business. I love to fly. It’s a great joy to me. But rarely do I use it for any kind of pleasure, other than it is a pleasure to fly.
I read and watch movies. I can’t go to the movie theater much anymore, though, because I get recognized. It’s worse sometimes if I wear a costume and try not to get recognized. I watch most of my films on airplanes.
To invent an airplane is nothing. To build one is something. But to fly is everything.
Sometimes when I’m watching television and something, an image, will come on that has to do with 9/11 or some of these families telling their stories, or children talking about drawing pictures of airplanes flying into towers, you know, I find myself still choking up.
We’re going to design future cars the way people design airplanes. Except we have to use so much technology and ingenuity to reduce its cost and its form factor. We can’t afford to have a jet plane. That would be great if could.
From the time I was a little itty-bitty kid, I was going to the airport every day. I began to study all the airplanes, and I’d draw all the airplanes.
I’m crazy about cars, about boats, about airplanes, about anything mechanical – I’m just a boy, really, and my clients are like boys, too.
The airplane stays up because it doesn’t have the time to fall.
I woke up one time coming out of a blackout, and I was on an airplane, descending to land in Charles de Gaulle Airport in France. And all I can think is I must have decided it was a good idea to go to France, and got my passport, and got on a plane.
At any time, somebody can blow themselves up and take Americans with them. They can blow up an airplane; they can crash an airplane. That’s something we have to worry about every day – we spend 40 billion dollars yearly on homeland security. That has nothing to do with Crusades or any of that other nonsense.
