Any time I run through my checklists and get to the 'Passenger Briefing' line, I can't help but think back to a scene from the movie Tommy Boy. David Spade and Chris Farley are posing as flight attendants and get stuck with the passenger briefing. 'Exits! Ok there's one back here, and there's uh, probably one over by the wing...somewhere...usually...' I'm always tempted to throw that line out, at least when other pilots fly with me.

But I haven't always felt confident about what a good briefing looks like. Well, sounds like. Thankfully, aviation has rescued us from bad briefings with a handy acronym to remember it by. Conveniently enough, the acronym is SAFETY. If you're a pilot, perhaps you can craft your passenger briefing, and if you are a passenger, well, here's what to expect.
