Always good for a laugh.

I recall a female instructor from the school i worked at many moons ago, departed YSBK and every person within a 100nm got to listen to her S&L lesson, which was amusing, but not nearly as amusing as her continued rambling about all "the Fing controllers not listening"

When in fact they, and everyone else with a radio on at the time was listening, Very carefully.

Edit: typo corrected

Pure gold

It happens -- Remember hearing about a fellow on their first solo years ago at AF... Singing along---- "I've got a ticket to ride...." With an open mic All the way to the downwind call.

Then there was the time at bandcamp .... - (only kidding) - Once was waiting for a takeoff clearance wondering where the controller went.
Realised after a minute it was toooo- quiet. Doh.

It was very amusing to hear that yesterday. The radar controller is normally very professional, it was interesting to hear him speak with the ATC voice turned off. Surely he didn't just leave his hand on the button?

In fairness to the controller, some of the clearance requests they receive around Brisbane and the Gold Coast are a joke. No wonder he had the sh*ts.

As I say to the occassional student pilot - don't slag anyone off until you are on the ground and the radio is off.

Word of warning young people, sitting in cruise is boring. When someone calls another and says go numbers, 90% will go numbers if they have a spare com just to listen in on something different. Numbers is not a dicreet chat frequency.

I heard from a mate on the grapevine some young guys flew into YJAB about 2 weeks ago in some 172's. There were about 13 pilots listening in on what you where saying. Very immature, arrogant and in some instances offensive (some tuned back out) from what I was told.

Moral is, nothing is dicreet. Always check your radio and make sure that correct frequency is selected, and TX goes away when you release PTT.

Once heard a full blown mayday call on CTAF during a lesson with open Mic and instructor, they did the full call. Anyone coming in half way through would have rung alarm bells.

There was a certain skydive pilot at YIFL who was notorious for holding down mic button too long.

''AAX you'll have holding on the drop due outbound traffic from YDKI''

''AAX copy...FUUUU*****''

And then there was the Brissie centre controller who had a stuck mike a few years ago, and continued talking about very very filthy stuff only to follow a couple of minutes later with a ''really?.......sh**!''

A few years ago fellow female pilot reported inbound to a GAAP and requested 1 touch & go on arrival. The male controller responded and then commented with a stuck mic: "with a voice like that, she can touch & go as much as she likes, whenever she likes."

Nooooooooo! The trip to Brisbane will be very boring if I can't fanticise about the BN Centre controller with the sexy Swedish accent!

But have you met her face to face? A difficult thing to navigate sometimes, I know. As I mentioned after the trouble and extra words on the radio, sometimes its better to just sit in the cruise and just imagine

T80, more than likely. I'm assuming you had the pleasure.
