As part of your preflight activities, you should always conduct a personal evalua- tion of your fitness to fly. Unless the aircraft is maintained according to FARs, an aircraft's airworthiness cer- tificate is not valid. Prior to every flight, you should perform a walkaround inspection using a written checklist to ensure that all necessary items are checked in a logical sequence. 11-13 S E C T I O N A

THE FLIGHT I feel that we are on the brink of an area of expansion of knowledge about ourselves and our surroundings that is beyond description or comprehension at this time .... Our efforts today and what we've done so far are but small build- ing blocks on a very huge pyramid to come .... Knowledge begets knowledge. The more I see, the more impressed I am not with how much we know but with how tremendous the areas are that are as yet unexplored. — U. S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. John H. Glenn, Jr., addressing a joint session of Congress six days after orbiting the earth three times in a Mercury space capsule, the Friendship 7 While Friendship 7's extraordinary journey would have been impossible without countless hours of preflight preparations, it was the flight which made headlines. And it was John Glenn, the pilot, who was largely responsible for transforming the dream into reality. Like a bird, it is in flight where the pilot truly flourishes. Whether in space, or closer to home, the skill and judgment of the pilot ultimately determines the success of every flight.
