Have you ever wondered what’s going on inside the cockpit of that jet airliner right before take-off? What exactly are those pilots doing? I did a bit of research and one of the things I learned about pilots was just how much they ALL rely on checklists.

Brrrrrr!  But that’s not necessarily the case – in fact, many enjoy Winter for [...]

The common stereotype about truck drivers is pretty much based on the movie “Smokey and the Bandit” – with good old boys hee-hawing as they high-tail it across the US.
