I was always afraid of dying. Always. It was my fear that made me learn everything I could about my airplane.
The first time I ever got into a cockpit of a plane, I felt at home.
The highest compliment that you can pay me is to say that I work hard every day, that I never dog it.
There were too many people who craved credit, and I wasn’t one of them.
You do what you have to do. You know your aircraft. Whatever you need to do to survive, you do it.
I was always taught that there were two things you never discuss: religion and politics. But I guess I’m a little different.
I love to fly, and I love to fly any kind of airplane.
Fear is a reaction. Courage is a decision.
If it’s not fun, don’t do it.
Always remember that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
Your mind is the strongest weapon you have. Use it wisely.
Always be willing to learn. The moment you think you know everything, you’ve stopped growing.
Success is not achieved by accident. It’s achieved by hard work, dedication, and the will to never give up.
There is no such thing as a perfect flight. There will always be challenges and obstacles to overcome.
The sky is not the limit. It’s just the beginning.
Fly high, but stay grounded.
The only limits you have are the ones you set for yourself.
Never be afraid to push the boundaries. That’s where progress is made.
Flying is not just a job. It’s a way of life.
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and trust that you’ll figure it out along the way.
Failure is not the end. It’s just a stepping stone to success.
Never let fear be the reason you don’t pursue your dreams.
The biggest risk is not taking any risks at all.
You have to be willing to embrace uncertainty if you want to achieve greatness.
Great things never come from comfort zones.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do.
Don’t wait for opportunities. Create them.
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
It’s not about how many times you fall. It’s about how many times you get back up.
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.
Don’t be afraid to be different. It’s what sets you apart.
Believe in yourself, even when no one else does.
Success is not measured by the number of trophies you have. It’s measured by the impact you have on others.
The only way to succeed is to keep moving forward, even when it’s difficult.
You don’t have to be the best. You just have to be better than you were yesterday.
Your attitude determines your altitude.
Success is not a destination. It’s a journey.
Failure is not a reflection of your worth. It’s an opportunity to learn and grow.
The greatest battles you will ever fight are the ones within yourself.
Every setback is a setup for a comeback.
When faced with adversity, remember why you started in the first place.
The only limits in life are the ones you impose on yourself.
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
Dream big, work hard, stay humble.
