Just another day at the office!  Successful test flight today…calm winds and blue sky. 

As with many things in life, ‘clear communication’ is critical to a successful flight.  There are some things though, that can make you feel a little ‘uneasy’, whether you are hurdling through space in a spaceship or hurdling through the sky in an aircraft…

Here are 3 things that you would rather not hear over the communication loops during flight:

#1  “Oops”

#2  “Sorry…my bad…”

#3  “O-o-o-kay…that was…interesting…”

I only heard one of these today…
