    seat-of-the-paints = > seats of the pants


    Figuring things out as you go along.

    In early aviation, when they would fly into a heavy cloud, they could easily turn upside down.

    Without being able to see anything, and without newer instruments, the only way to tell if the plane was upside down or right side up was the feeling of the seat pressing against the pilot. You were flying by the seat of your pants.
