Well, what is done there? People cannot "join" the mile high club if they are already members!

I think its beause you can join whenever the aircraft is above 5280 feet... i.e. not parked outside the terminal.

You'll know you're a member when it happens because you'll have the imprint of th sink handles in your bum.

(not that I would know...err, ummm...I merely been told the details....yes..)

Well at Mile High Stadium the Bronco's always got screwed!

Does that answer your question?;)

Sorry to disappoint some folks with bad news, but an aviation mile is a nautical one. A statute mile at 5280ft is just not high enough. You need to be at 6076.115 feet to join the club.

The good news is that those who failed to qualify just have to requalify.... :ok:

No, we're not talking about the 2-Mile High Club.

Most clubs have rules that, if breached, result in errant members having their membership rescinded and them being drummed-out.
Under what circumstances would Mile High Club membership be 'withdrawn'?
I think we should be told . . .

She did make an all too brief reappearance about two-three months ago.

The better news is, those who qualify have to renew annually. And yes, the "nua" is intended, not misspelt.

A more exclusive club is the Zero Height Club. You have to board and complete the membership procedure before the A/C leaves the ramp.

And the even better bit is ... I live at 1,000 ft, have to requalify annually, and it takes 6 shots to score a goal :}

Tried it in a 172 once though. Was part of my oral exam. Bit of trouble keeping height though.

IIRC a pilot must not take over command for 20 minutes after end of controlled rest (due to sleep inertia) and must end any controlled rest breaks 30 minutes before arrival at end of cruise and start of descent.

Are crew rests normally to be used by mile high club?
