Almost fifty years ago when I was in school, I had an Australian geography teacher called Sidney Smith. He only ever said one thing to me: “You’ll come a cropper in the exams!” He was invariably right and his prediction hung around my neck for all of my school career. This morning I am taking a Civil Aviation Authority exam. Part of it includes remembering CAA laws, so I have devised the following in an attempt to shake off Sidney Smith’s curse…
Unmanned Aircraft System -You!
Air Navigation Order – what yours be?
Mandatory Reporting System – if crash you’ll do!
Crew Resource (air hostess heaven!)
A flying display is what you’ll see!
Safe model flying (that’s just great!)
In hindsight I accept it was only his interpretation of: “fail to prepare, prepare to fail!” Thanks Sidney, this one’s for you. RIP.
