Flying a Plane on Another Planet

What If has a nice little article about the effects certain planets would have if you happened to be flying over them in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk. And they do so with humour.

Most of the time you can pretty much guess what will happen (plane will be crushed by the atmosphere/intense gravity) however they still offer a nice summary of what you would expect to happen should you decide to try such an endeavour.

The most interesting is that Titan would appear to be a good place to fly a plane, so long as you don't mind freezing to death.
