Thumbs down

>>Can You still get them ?

Sadly, it looks like they have been discontinued. See:

http://www.johnwillis.co.uk/pilotpal/publish.htm

You can still view the 2000 calendar at:

http://www.johnwillis.co.uk/pilotpal/calendar.htm

This sort of publication has long ago disappeared in the mainstream U.S. aviation press. It is too politically incorrect for advertisers in these enlightened times. In the early 70's Professional Pilot had nude shots of girls behind the desk at FBO's, such a thing would be unthinkable now.

Well I think that we should try and get it back, if enough PPRuNe's got together perhaps we could !!!! I know that its not P.C. but I loved it and so did most of the Engineers and Aircrew That I knew.

A couple of years (if not more) ago, IFR and I had a conversation in the Pilot's Pal bar at Biggin Hill with the man who produced the original calendars and we did discuss the possibility of a PPRuNe calendar. Alas, times have changed and I don't think it would be acceptable to the masses although I do think it would prove a nice little earner for the PPRuNe Fund.

oh gees..
I just can't see Danny in a little white g-string lounging seductively over the wing of a 737......
Although I'd pay to see PPRuNe Towers in some of his outfits that he's described on PPRuNe Chat.
I think Marge would surprise a few!

Oh I don't know. Now that Marge has had her varicose veins seen to, she'd look terrific in Agent Provocateur a la Kylie.

Naturally the Arse of the Year contestants would be a popular feature.

Political Correctness be damned, as long as there were men as well as women I am all for it.

If the WI can produce their calenders why can't PPRuNe have one

Ms PP, since you are in charge of the project, could I put in a request?
Please?

I have the perfect job for you! How would you like to assist the ladies with their wardrobes, assist them dressing, that sort of thing? All you'll need is a pair of warm spoons...

I don't get it. Not once amongst all of the 2000 calender's sleek aircraft is there a BN Islander featured...

PP think I could only stand that for a year or twenty. Does that include undressing too? Also do I get to choose the models?

Tinny think in aircraft terms they are looking for Claudia Schiffers, not Norah Battys

I can think of someone who might be happy to pose appropriately in or on an Islander. In a romantic snowy setting perhaps.

As the "elder statesman" I can, I believe, rightfully claim pole position, if you will pardon the expression, to ensure complete propriety and fairplay.

The fair PP and I did indeed question the possibility of producing a PPRuNe calender, no not that one it has too many holes, calendar which could grace the halls of the mightiest airlines and clubs alike. The prospects were endless but alas and alack, the question of the filthy luker(?) came into it and the dream was broken.

But wait! Is there not a person with his pockets stuffed with the stuff? Answers on a postcard please. We could then take forth this undressing atop a giant Prat and Witney, or a gambol in a Jumbo, or any number of wild wanderings in and out of delightful Gods of the skies. SIR! Excuse me sir, it's time to wake up! Damn!

The PPRuNe Fund would be awash with such wealth that we might even manage a FREE bash! : What a lovely thought

Well I think PPRuNe should do Two Calendars Both in the style of the Pilot's Pal's one Female one and One Male one, I'm sure that if Pilots Pals at Biggen Hill were approched something could be done if all the Ppruner's brought one we could sell 10,000s of the Male and Female Versions, please lets have a vote and a big push with some publicity for this Calendars get seen a lot and if its got the PPRuNe name on it its got to attract more members, come on I need a decent Calender to Hang on my Crewroom Wall and Toolbox. Lets get some sorted for 2004 PLEASE.

In fact if only 1in 10 members brought a Calendar that is over 5,500 Calendars, and if PPRuNe took a cut of a Quid thats 51/2 Grand
