Quote #1:
The chances that your tombstone will read 'Killed by Asteroid' are about the same as they'd be for 'Killed in Airplane Crash.'
-Neil deGrasse Tyson

Quote #2:
In aviation they have auto pilot and color radar and a lot of other instrumentation that is a backup for pilots. It's really brought the incidents of plane crashes way down. Same thing ought to happen in the medical industry, I think.
-Dennis Quaid

Quote #3:
Aviation is the branch of engineering that is least forgiving of mistakes.
-Freeman Dyson

Quote #4:
A FMS can be thought of as a master computer system that has control over all other systems, computerized and otherwise. As such, it coordinates the adjustment of flight, engine, and airframe parameters either automatically or by instructing the pilot to do so. Literally, all aspects of the flight are considered, from preflight planning to pulling up to the jetway upon landing, including in-flight amendments to planned courses of action.
