Pilots, add this to your pre-flight checklists: “Remove cat before flight”

An ultralight pilot had to cut his flight short when he found that his flying club’s cat mascot had stowed away in the wing. It’s all captured in the video above, titled Remove Cat Before Flight.

The flight starts out as expected: smooth takeoff and a climb to altitude…

He quickly comes in for a landing…

The caption for the video reads: “Pour info le chat va très bien, il continue avec application son rôle de mascotte du club”, which translates as “FYI, that cat’s fine, he remains the club’s mascot.”
