Well, I've got a ripper!

Many MANY years ago, when I was a young yodeler, a male friend and I, both at 17 (hello Nosey) went flying in a PA28 with my friend's female high school teacher.

The flight progressed, but due to mod, ocnl svr turb at around 10,000 ft (QNH), the teacher pax in the back seat became distressed. I suggested to my friend he should do the gentlemanly thing and sit in the second row with his teacher in order to reassure her.

And reassure her, he did, in no uncertain terms!!!
When I glanced over to see how everyone was, all I could see was my friend's teacher's naked behind decending upon his erect self in a most voracious manner!

Not only did my suggestion have the desired effect of taking the mind of a disturbed passenger, but, as I was to find out later, this was my friend's FIRST sexual encounter!

Remarkable! And I thank the Piper Corporation for the reflective characteristics of the sun visor fitted to early model PA28's!

Short answer is "yes".

Long answer is a blooody cramped toilet, an A300 enroute CPH-KGS and an ex girl friend who wanted to bonk anywhere, anytime. Highly recommended, but do mind your head (both of 'em) as there is limited ceiling clearence and several protruding objects that might interfere with the free movements, so to speak. Do try it, if nothing else then for the look on the hosties face when you emerge from the lav with that tell tale after glow .....

The evening before a flight from somewhere in northern Europe to PMI the captain of the jet informed his copilot; "If Mont Blanc sticks up through the clouds when passing over the Alps, he and his girlfriend (who was coming along on the jump) were going to join the Mile High Club. The copilot listened to the captain`s Mont Blanc briefing and gave his superior a smile back which said; "Sure, you do that". The next day during the met briefing it became clear to everyone involved that it was more or less sky clear and unlimited visibility in southern Europe. And a couple of hours later they could see Mont Blanc from northern Europe. The captain announced (not on the PA system) that in a few minutes the Mile High Club would have two new members. The copilot, still a bit uncertain about how serious his captain was, asked the most natural question in the world at that time of the day; "And what am I supposed to do?" He knew that the captain`s girlfriend was a sporty one when it came to sex, but he never expected her reply; "You can sit here if you want to!" Interesting proposal, but no thank you. He offered the now-to-be-members to go back and entertain the pax for a couple of minutes. "Put the key to the cockpit door in your pocket", the captain said. He did not want any of the cabin staff to enter the cockpit when flying over Mont Blanc. At least not that day. Some minutes later the copilot found himself in the aft section of the cabin. It was time to return to the right seat before the pax and cabin staff started to wonder what he was doing. After all, his place was up front on the right hand side. He called the captain and got the green light to re-enter the cockpit. A beautiful red colour all over their faces and a in the cockpit not familiar odour told the copilot that the Mile High Club had two new members. Is this a true story, you may ask. Well, I was the copilot. What happened on the return flight has to be chapter two in my book.;)

Saratoga TC,

???????????, like in without a partner? Sorry, but I guess that kind of activity does not qualify for membership ;)

Does a blow-job at 2500' in a C152 count?

3rd Apr 2002, 06:04
:p Does having it off with one of your F/A,s in a Motel/ Hotel in Mt. Hagen & Goroka in Papua - New Guinea in the '70,s' qualify one for HONORORY membership of the Club. Check the A.M.S.L.

3rd Apr 2002, 06:53
If the F/A was a local girl it would certainly qualify for a BRAVERY award.:D :D

3rd Apr 2002, 08:09
Several encounters in light cessna's : firstly, a blowjob in a 182, but that didn't count so in a 172 (alone with my girl) she stripped off and sat on top of me facing forwards - not quite as we had rehearsed, but probably better:D Something to be proud of I thought; no autopilot and CTA.

I was later informed that I didn't qualify because we were at 1500', so another day I requested 5500' and we repeated the exercise, there was pretty serious turbulence, and I could hardly see the instrument panel to monitor my height, so I requested the 5000-6000' block.....due turbulence of course (but I did try and keep it above 5280' at all times;) )

Funny though, she was pretty stressed about how bumpy it all was until we got naked, then she thought it was great!

3rd Apr 2002, 08:29
As far as I can remember, in order to be a full member you have to do it above FL300. In an airline I used to work for, the turbo prop air crew found that to be unfair, so the Board decided to instate a Mile High Club Lower Level Membership. :D

"Does a blow-job 2500' in a C-152 count" ?

Well, where ya flying solo, or did ya have a pax?:D

Well, solotk, if you have her by the curlies from the southern colonies, they can't be very short!

Reminds me of a song I used to know......

Submitted for your use:

Federal Aviation Administration
14 CFR Part 61
(Docket No. 75487345, Notice No. 88-523040306)


ACTION: Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM)

SUMMARY: This notice proposes to require additional qualifications and testing before a certificated pilot may engage or continue to engage in Mile High Club Operations (MHCO) while also exercising the privileges of a pilot certificate.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed or delivered in sextuplicate to: Federal Aviation Administration, Office of Chief Counsel, Attention: Rules Docket (AGC-204), Docket No. 75487345, 800 Independence Avenue SW, Washington DC 20591. Comments may be examined in the Rules Docket weekdays, except Federal holidays, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.


Need for Rulemaking

Under present rules, anything accomplished at an altitude of one statute mile (5,280 feet) above ground level (AGL), regardless of the degree of difficulty or the level of expertise demanded, earns a certificated pilot a scroll illustrated by Milton Caniff and a three-color bumper sticker.

Through a procedure of self-regulation, the organization has set forth requirements that activities take place at an altitude of at least 5,280 feet above ground level to prevent Denver pilots from messing around on the ramp.

Although the organization has adopted rigid admission requirements for its pilot members, a recent National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report dis-closed an accident in a light training aircraft (LTA) caused by pilot error in the form of disorientation of a student pilot (sex unknown) after the Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) (sex un-known) attempted to introduce the student to a maneuver not included in the MHC

Further, evidence sug-gests that some hitherto unexplained accidents may have been due to pilot fatigue following Mile High Club Operations (MHCO) activities.

These accidents have amply demonstrated that there is a compelling need for regulation of MHCO activities for the protection of the public and property under the flight paths of such aircraft.

The FAA is proposing to expand the scope of Part 61 of the FARs by the addition of paragraphs 61.300 through 61.305 to prohibit the propositioning of any occupant of a certificated aircraft by any licensed and current pilot who has not first demonstrated the ability to execute the duties of pilot-in-command and/or co-pilot to the satisfaction of an Operations Inspector or a designated Pilot Examiner. It is further proposed to establish minimum experience, age, and skill levels for the issuance of MCHO ratings to pilots' certificates. To ensure that a satisfactory level of proficiency is maintained by certificated pilots possessing MHCO ratings, it is proposed that biennial proficiency reviews be mandated.

Environmental Impact Statement

The adoption of these regulations is not anticipated to have a significant impact upon the environment including an impact upon population pressures.

Economic Impact Statement

The proposed rules would not materially impact the economics of MHCO activities, including those conducted for hire under Part 135.


For the purposes of this NPRM, the following Definitions are established:

PILOT: An applicant for or possessor of a MCHO rating regardless of sex, creed, color, political affiliation, proclivities, or physical dimensions.

CO-PILOT: Any person regardless of sex, creed, color, political
affiliation, proclivities, or physical dimensions assisting a certificated, MHCO-rated pilot in carrying out MHCO activities.

PASSENGER: Any reliable witness to an MHCO flight test who does not actively participate.

FLIGHT ENGINEER: Anyone other than a co-pilot who assists the pilot in establishing the proper conditions for accomplishing the minimum requirements of MHCO activities.

AIRCRAFT: Any vehicle aloft suitable for MHCO activities. Does not include automobiles or parachutists falling from high places.

GLIDER: Anyone performing an MHCO activity entirely in mid-air such as during the free-fall period of a parachute jump.

HANG GLIDER: Glider with above-average equipment.

SOLO FLIGHT: A practice session where the pilot is the sole manipulator of the controls.

DUAL FLIGHT: An MHCO activity during which the pilot uses both hands.

AUTOPILOT AUTHORIZATION: An authorization from the FAA permitting someone else to do it for a shy pilot.

The Proposed Rule

For reasons set forth above, the FAA is proposing to amend Part 61 of the Federal Aviation Regulations as follows:


1. The authority citation for Part 61 continues to read as follows:

Authority: Secs. 313(a), 314, 601, 602, Federal Aviation Act of 1958, 49 U.S.C. 1354(a), 1355, 1421, 1422; sec. 6(c), Department of Transportation Act, 49 U.S.S. 1655(2), unless otherwise noted.

2. Section 61 would be amended by adding the following:

61.300 An applicant for a Mile High Club Operations (MHCO) rating on a pilot certificate must meet the following minimum qualifications:

(a) The applicant must have reached his/her fifteenth birth-day or possess a deep voice.

(b) The applicant must present a high school diploma or equivalent indicating a grade of Failing or better, or a notarized statement proving the applicant has compromised at least one substitute teacher.

61.301 An applicant for an MHCO rating must pass a written exami-nation on the following applicable aviation subjects:

(a) Care, operation, a periodic maintenance of articulating seats in certificated U.S. civil aircraft.

(b) Basic anatomy and other considerations in selecting a co-pilot.

(c) Dangers associated with the destruction of aircraft panel
instruments by bare feet.

61.302 An applicant for an MHCO rating will be tested on the
following maneuvers:

(a) Takeoffs. Applicant will prepare the co-pilot for MHCO activities.

(b) Stalls. Applicant will demonstrate any acceptable and workable method of delay maneuvering to avoid premature results.

(c) Approaches. Applicant will demonstrate at least six (6) precision or three (3) non-precision approaches to a co-pilot who does not suspect the purpose of the flight.

(d) Soft Field Landings. Applicant will show proficiency in selecting
procedures to be utilized under soft conditions.

(e) Short Field Landings. Applicant will show proficiency in
utilizing the proper procedures under short conditions.

(f) Forced Landings. Applicant will will accomplish the minimum MHCO activities despite co-pilot's objections.

(g) On-pylon Eights. Applicant will select two prominent landmarks and maneuver between them. If the co-pilot is not endowed with sufficiently prominent landmarks, the activity may be performed in a flight simulator approved by the Administrator.

(h) In-flight Emergencies. Applicant will conduct a suitable approach with the zipper jammed in the "up" position and will demonstrate the smooth emergency extension of gear before contact.

(i) Holding Patterns. The Applicant will show proficiency in covering all points of interest with only two hands.

(j) Radio Navigation. Applicant will insert the radial into the
omnibearing selector and achieve station passage before the "off" flag appears.

(k) Back Course Approach. Not an approved procedure.

(l) Diverting to an Alternate. Applicant will make an approach to a passenger when it becomes obvious that the original destination has gone below minimums because of a cold front.

(m) Maneuvering with an Inoperative Engine. Self explanatory.

(n) Weather Recognition. Applicant will readily identify cold fronts and warm fronts with the cockpit lights inoperative.

(o)Lost Communications Procedures. Applicant will show proficiency in blocking the co-pilot's voice channel using a broad-band antenna with great frequency.

61.303 Proficiency Review.

(a) No person may conduct MHCO activities unless, within the
preceding 24 months, that person has --

(1) Accomplished a proficiency review given to him, in an aircraft for which the person is rated, by an appro-priately certificated flight instructor or other person designated by the Administrator who possesses a valid MHCO Inspection Authorization.

(2) Had his/her log book endorsed by the person con-ducting the review certifying that the person has satisfactorily accomplished all the required activities of the review.

(3) However, a person who has, within the preceding 24 months, satisfactorily completed an MHCO proficiency check conducted by the FAA or otherwise been satisfactorily screwed by the FAA need not accomplish the flight review required by this section.

61.304 General Experience.

No person may engage in MHCO activities as pilot-in-command of an aircraft carrying passengers, nor of an aircraft certificated for more than one required pilot flight crewmember unless within the preceding 90 days that person has satisfactorily carried out MHCO activities and has made suitable log book entries attesting the fact.

This requirement does not apply to persons holding an air-line transport pilot certificate or to activities conducted while operating under part 135 of this chapter.

61.305 Instrument Experience.

No person may engage in MHCO activities unless, during the preceding 6 months, that person has conducted MHCO operations in the immediate vicinity of cold fronts and successfully logged at least 6 hours under actual or simulated IFR conditions which involved at least six approaches.

:p Lobotumi, She was most definately not a Jungle Bunnie, so I suppose that rules me out for the bravery award

As TR2 said in his opening statement: "Don`t be shy now". Look at The Mile High Club as some sort of a sports club. That will probably make it easier to tell your story. I`m sure you have one. Or? ;)

It only half counts ( 5280 ft in a mile )

First time ... in a Luftansa 747 over the North Atlantic with the whiney wife of a fellow GI who's kids I helped babysit for the 14 hour flight back to Atlanta - the kids went to sleep and the alcohol and hormones took over. Small lavs ... but where there's a will there's a way.

Second time ... oral in the back seat of an MD80 out of Dallas with my girlfriend at the time.

Third ... in a Skyhawk about 20 miles east of GSO with my girlfriend's best friend ... seat pushed all the way back ... smooth air ... trimmed out ... petite partner.

AWESOME! I still smile thinking about each one. :)

When I worked as a flight instructor in south Texas, I asked a few students to wash one of our better looking C-172s. Busy as bees they thoroughly cleaned the airplane. An hour later they came back and showed me their "discovery". They were so excited that I couldn't understand a work - but then I don't speak Spanish. Their discovery consisted of 5 used condoms that were hidden between the rear seats. :p :p :p :rolleyes:

Depite many suspects and investigations by the chief pilot we could never find the guilty parties ....

No, I am not a MHC member, I just don't trust the autopilot ... :D

Only once.....

Some years ago I took the girlfriend that I had at that time for a night package delivery flight on a PA-23. :p

At first I was nervous because I knew that the Altimatic III is not as reliable as to put your life in it but after she got naked I FORGOT; With the seatbacks reclined it is very very spacious :D

About one and a half years ago I took my wife with me for a Dec. 31 duty, and we did not do it....... it is not the same with your wife:rolleyes:
