TTMFGHH Throttle finger tight, Trim 2 down, Mixture rich, Gauges, Harness tight, Hood closed and locked.

Chipmunk pre take off. Haven't used it for fifty years and it is still as embedded as it was in Kidlington then.

Nothing close to rude in that I'll have to dig out my dad's copy of the pilots notes and see if it is in there.

The rule still works well whenever the two letters together make an "ee" sound.

Bon, mauvais, grand, gros,
Jeune, jolie, long, haut
Méchant, court, petit, beau,
Vaste, vilain, vieux, sot,
Premier, dernier, meilleur, pire, autre.

The adjectives in French that precede the noun. Not a mnemnomnicmn but a ready rhyme.

Discorde - Nothing remotely rude in there! It may have been something that was particular toe No1 AEF. I will dig out my Dads pilots notes which is a more modern flip type, although he flew the Chipmunk from 1950 with No1 Reserve Flying Scholl at Panshanger so would have had earlier versions of the pilots notes. I'm hoping he wrote it in there by hand, but I doubt if he had to write it down to remember it. I have my late father in laws Dakota Pilots notes original WW2 copy, which has his hand written notes in it as well as a hand drawn diagram of the fuel system, or possibly the hydraulic system or maybe both.

In terms of flying, I used the phrase:

”The East is odd.”

Meaning I’d have to fly at odd thousands of feet when flying East, and even numbers of feet when flying West.

Mind you, I was thinking the East coast of the USA, not any other part of the globe.

And many people in the USA think that it is the West coast that is a little odd...

GA single vital actions before T/O

Surprised we haven't had this yet...

Too Many People Fornicate In Cheap Hotels

T Trim SET, Throttle friction TIGHT
M Mixture RICH, Magnetos BOTH
P Prop Pitch CHECK Primer LOCKED
F Flaps SET, Fuel sufficient, correct tank selected, Fuel Pump ON, Fuel Pressure CHECK
I Instruments scan
C Carb heat OFF Check Approach
H Hatches and Harness CHECK



I'll let you all into a wee secret...... Fornicate wasnt actually the word the instructor used.

I am surprised that nobody has mentioned DIFSRIP for programming the MCDU on airbus: Data, Init, F-Pln, Sec F-Pln, Rad Nav, Init B, Perf. There are of course variants, but it is a good start.

That's what we were taught.

I before E except after C, when the sound is EE.
