[FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']Responsibility and authority of the pilot in command.

(a) The pilot in command of an aircraft is directly responsible for, and is the final authority as to, the operation of that aircraft.
(b) In an in-flight emergency requiring immediate action, the pilot in command may deviate from any rule of this part to the extent required to meet that emergency.[/FONT]

[FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']This regulation does not mean a pilot can blindly career around a controlled area without regard of other aircraft, by definition driving your aircraft up the ass end of another aircraft is unsafe and so your actions would not be covered by the above regulations. Doing what is “safe” and what you “like” are very different scenarios if you can’t differentiate between the two you should not be flying.[/FONT]
