your Pharmare Arrakis Ornithopter:
Entering : To enter your ornithopter, or someone else's, you
can use either 'board' or 'enter'.
Syntax: [board enter] ornithopter
Leaving : To leave any ornithopter you happen to be in, you
can use either 'leave' or 'exit'.

Lifting off : You can't get anywhere in your ornithopter until
you can get it off the ground. Use the 'takeoff' or
'liftoff' commands to do this.
Syntax: [takeoff liftoff]
Landing : You can't exit from a flying ornithopter; use the
'land' command to return to the safety of the
Docking : You don't want to leave your Pharmare Arrakis
Ornithopter out in the open where just anyone can
steal it, do you? Find a landing pad, and use the
'dock' command to bring her home to safety.
Taking command : Anyone can hop into the pilot's seat by using the
'pilot', 'steer' or 'control' commands. You, the
proud owner of your Pharmare Arrakis

at any time, and a pilot that has proven himself or
herself to be asleep at the wheel can be replaced
with these two commands.

joy of flying your Pharmare Arrakis Ornithopter,
you can give up control with the 'relieve',
'release' or 'stoppilot' commands.

the eight cartesian points, north, northeast, east,
southeast, south, southwest, west, and northwest.

long versions of those directions]
Refuelling : It's true; your Pharmare Arrakis Ornithopter can
run out of fuel. To keep it in top condition, you
will want to refuel it. This can be done by flying
to a refuelling pad and using the 'refuel' command.
Syntax: [refuel <amount>]
Theft Prevention : Pharmare Arrakis Ornithopters are very hot
commodities, and we at $YELLOWPharmare recommend that you
