1. Resist the temptation to fly direct on GPS.
2. Think twice about cruise altitude.
3. "The only time you can have too much fuel is when you're on fire".
4. Clean the windshield and front side windows every time you fly.

16. Carry a set of low-altitude en-route charts for the trips you make most often.
17. Remember that the most neglected quadrant of see-and-be-seen is directly behind you.
19. Every non-IFR pilot fears winding up on top of an overcast with little fuel, experience or options.
