It were back in the days when it was me job to make a fool of meself on the telly... instead of now just generally making a fool of meself.
That particular old B206 actually was scary.
Lots of inoperable stuff on the panel as we flew to a news job... I didn't have a good feeling about the pilot, who was very casual.
A few months later he took himself out - crashed in a pine forest.

As in flown multiple times not just gotten a single ride in them during which I got to mess with the controls a bit. As in properly trained and certificated and type rates to fly them.

This is just so intelligent and educational... this has to be the most informative, inspirational display of knowledge ever on PPRuNe. People fly on different types of aircraft... who knew?

How many aircraft have you flown in - in your life time ??
All the ones I have stepped out of.

One that I didn't but that had been flown by somebody else.

It shows that someone here has flown in every aircraft and can tell a tale about any one.

Many of the usual suspects as SLF, and four or five trainers as P/UT or PIC, but I was surprised to see I have two that no-one else has mentioned: Dassault Mercure (Air Inter from Marseille to CDG in June 1993), and Ikarus C42B..

….we would get all the avgeeks and spotty spotter teenagers showing off .
I thought we had nearly all the former already here, and possibly a few of the latter.

This must go down as the most silly thread I have read and how many of you dreamers are actual professional pilots ?

Some of us are, indeed, only amateur pilots. But we still fly things.

I have never forgotten the thrill of my first flight, it was in a Chipmunk flown by a Flt Sgt. After some 60 years it remains my best flight ever. After that nothing to speak of really, plenty of civ and trooping, pretty boring although the Comet Singapore - UK and back was a revelation after UK - Singapore by Britannia. I do regret not taking up the offer of a trip in the T4 on my final Harrier field deployment.
Lady SB beats me hands down: Shackleton, Hastings, Argosy and a 1574Flt Meteor.
