Powder Puff Pilot has released a new line of notecard sets for pilots: Not for Navigation Greetings. The initial offering, boxed sets of eight notecards, come in two flavors: Thank You and All Occasion.
Each Not for Navigation Greetings card pairs a graphic that is familiar to pilots — such as an IFR or VFR chart, instrument approach plate, or airport diagram — with plays on aviation terms. A notecard in the Thank You set, for example, has “Thanks” at the bottom of a chart on the front and, on the inside, “Thanks from the bottom of my chart.” Among the designs in the All Occasion set is one with a band-aid on a sectional chart on the front, and the inside says “Sectional healing.” Another says “INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK” on the inside, a phrase recognized by every pilot.
“Yes, the puns will elicit some groans,” admitted Sue Hughes, owner of Powder Puff Pilot and designer of Not for Navigation Greetings, “but each one is an inside joke for pilots.” Even the name of the line, “Not for Navigation,” is understood in aviation circles as a phrase found on any chart that is intended for purposes other than navigation, such as training or decorative use.
Thank You and All Occasion notecard sets are available for purchase from the company website or from more than 50 FBOs across the U.S. that carry Powder Puff Pilot products. A wide range of single cards by Not for Navigation Greetings is expected soon. For more information: PowderPuffPilot.com or 888-801-6628.
