The Value of a Kneeboard

So, at the end of my flight yesterday, I learned the value of keeping all you papers and other things secure, preferably with a kneeboard. As I was exiting the aircraft after shut-down, I placed my checklists, some pieces of paper, my pen and the keys on the dashboard. There was then a strong wind gust, and everything blew off the plane and scattered around the WWFC apron. I then had to chase all the papers and retrieve the keys from under the plane. So, I'll be heading to the aviation shop at the airport and picking up a kneeboard, so I can keep my stuff secured right to me, and also to provide a more stable platform to write things down while in the plane.

Moral of the Story: Keep your stuff secure! :P
