Vejam a seguir as 33 maiores mentiras da aviação, que o nosso amigo Beto Arcaro indicou:

Me? I’ve never busted minimums.
We will be on time, maybe even early.

I fixed it right the first time, it must have failed for other reasons.
All that turbulence spoiled my landing. [Um clássico de aeroclube]
I’m a member of the mile high club.
I only need glasses for reading. [Um cássico do HASP]
I broke out right at minimums. [Muitas nuvens lêem as cartas de aproximação para não excederem os mínimos, isso já está provado!]

Oh sure, no problem, I’ve got over 2000 hours in that aircraft.
I have 5000 hours total time, 3200 are actual instrument.
No need to look that up, I’ve got it all memorized.
Sure I can fly it — it has wings, doesn’t it?
We’ll be home by lunchtime.
Your plane will be ready by 2 o’clock.
I’m always glad to see the FAA [ANAC].
We fly every day — we don’t need recurrent training.
It just came out of annual — how could anything be wrong?
I thought YOU took care of that.
I’ve got the field in sight. [Até Steve Wonder fala isso…]
