10 Flying Tips From Pilots (PHOTOS)

We came across an article in Reader's Digest entitled "50 Things Your Pilot Won't Tell You." While we have to admit the title made us nervous, it also intrigued us.

What do pilots know that might calm our fears? What do they want to tell us--and more importantly, what do they not want us to know?

Our friends at Reader's Digest kindly let us excerpt our favorite tips and bits of info from the article. We put together a list of our favorites: the ones that were helpful, insightful or just plain funny.

Let us know what you think!
