More drinking leads to more flying

Humor in aviation about partying and then flying, but there are two Federal Aviation Rules that are important to know when it comes to drinking and flying. Most pilots are aware of the “8 hour” rule, that is, 8 hours from bottle to throttle, although many airlines have a more stringent 12 hour time limit. Any factor that impairs a pilot’s ability to fly the aircraft is a potential invitation for disaster.

To be born free is an accident. To live free is a privilege. To die free is a responsibility.

– General James Sehorn
