Question United Jumpseat flight possibile?

Hi everybody,

I am flying to the USA in a few weeks. I am a real aviation fan and also
have a PPL.
Is it possibile to visit the flight-deck inflight?
Are my chances higher if I give a letter to the Captain via the flight attendant?
Thank you very much.

Not entirely sure of the exact FAA regulations but i'm pretty sure inflight cockpit visits have been prohibited since 9/11. A letter won't make any difference unfortunately. If you want to see the cockpit, if you ask the cabin crew before landing whether you can have a look when you've landed I am sure they will say yes.

They were prohibited prior to 9-11. Now you have a better chance of getting into Fort Knox.

Didn't know that! I remember visiting my Dad up front in Europe, would have been about 1997-8. I feel sorry for the OP, such a shame these days.

Not the same thing, but you can arrange a visit before or after the flight to have a look see.

My airline will allow visitors to the cockpit before or after the flight, but before is a bad time since we are busy getting the flight ready. If you ask the Flight Attendant(s) they should be able to arrange it for you after landing, unless the crew is in a rush to catch a flight to go home.
