One day I found myself riding the jump seat, up front in a client's Cessna Citation. It was my first time in the cockpit of a jet, and as we lined up for takeoff I said, "Gee, this is exciting!"
"We don't like exciting up here," came the captain's clipped response.
"Exciting happens way too fast at 500 knots," explained the copilot.
"We like boring," said the pilot.
"Same old same-old," affirmed the copilot.
