It is rather embarrassing to see pilots taking decisions that are way beyond their limits and putting themselves in risky situations. They forget that they would not only harm themselves & their near and dear ones but bring a bad name to the sport itself. This is to encourage ‘responsible flying ‘ since we have had several examples in the past & in the near past where some of us have clearly been pretty irresponsible & stupid.
