A friend of mine is dyslexic, he's called Anal.

Sorry, that's not very furry.

L.R.

My favourite joke, ever. It appeared in Private Eye many many years ago.

I wish I still had a copy of it.

Not quite dislex', but.

F/O on command upgrade is taxying the a/c and misses the turning. TRE, "Oy, didn't you see the arrows?"
"Arrows? Didn't even see the indians." Boom Boom.

Registrations of T67M and Baseball caps

I wondered about that too, especially as it is quite easy to match it with CTC aviation from the 12 registered SLINGSBY T67M260's listed on Ginfo, with a little digging. I still wonder wy my aircraft registrations and my address are freely available to all and sundry on Ginfo.

However I was more concerned about the baseball cap with the peak pulled well down over the instructors eyes obscuring much of the field of view. I would not dream of doing unusual attitudes or aerobatics with such a restriction to my vision and would not care to be sharing airspace with anyone who was. It certainly is detremental to look out. Glider pilots are specifically asked not wear them whilst flying by the BGA and any instructor found to be flying with one on or allowing a student to wear one will be censured. I realise this is just "TV World" and I have no idea what sort of service was being recieved or from where or class of airspace was being used etc but it would have been nice to have heard the HASELL checks being done and an emphasis made about look out during the manouvres.

Ah, the HASELL checks. She of the brown eyes & sandy hair at the pilots' local. I came across her when someone told me to 'check out Hazel', or "let's go down to the XYZ and do some Hazel checking." She had me flipperty flip in a twirl. Giros toppled before my 3rd pint. Happy days, painful mornings.

AFAIK, there is no Episode 3. The first episode shown on Monday 14th August was billed as a new series 1/3, but the following Monday's episode was shown as 2/2.

Interesting. Like eeeaddict, I felt sure they had made - and were advertising - three episodes when they were busy promoting the programme at every opportunity. I wonder if the third one has been quietly shelved?

More likely someone in the last episode got fired so they couldn`t show it.

In line with Ryanair's current activities, Squeezy chose to cancel at short notice.

if you Google: easyjet inside the cockpit dr3 (Danish channel) you will find the missing episode! Happened upon it by chance whilst watching hotel TV in Copenhagen. When you see some of the touch and go’s in Nimes, you’ll understand why they didn’t show it. Cadet as PF not having hold of the side stick controller!

There was a TV series at the beginning of the 90's on BA Integrated Students, soon after the beginning of the end came, as I recall back around '95 P2F started emerging in the UK (LET-410 Cargo Ops, N Reg, East Midlands based) possibly the first UK P2F, memory could be dodgy, but it was up North, around the same time EagleJet offering RHS 737 for some dodgy ops, the elimination around '02 of the BCPL and self-improver route, paying for T/R's, massive rise of self-sponsored students compared to the last decade, and Airlines getting greedy with the accountants running the show (hence influencing the MPL) and partially responsible for the Kos incident which raised a few eyebrows I'm sure.

So, nothing in those episodes surprises me.
