Some pilots, particularly recreational pilots, forget this
Lack of awareness can catch us all. Landed at a government owned airfield in a 212 to board pax while still running when a Cessna 172 pulled up alongside and shut down, had the ground handler go tell the pilot his Cessna would get wrecked when we took off. Most upset on receiving the message he was and berated the handler that we were using "his" airfield, the pilot being a local. Was helping a charter Cessna 207 pilot put their aircraft to bed one day and installed the engine blanks for her, only to be told I had done it wrong and was shown how to install so that if forgotten to remove on pre flight on hitting the starter prop rotation would remove them. Never taught that trick before.
