eddievercetti: You are so dumb, lady!

Every farkette here would have slapped sense into you.


Attractive, thin, successful women wouldn't take advice from a "farkette".

That would be almost as stupid as taking advice from a "farker" on "manly" issues.

JackieRabbit: I would like to biatch-slap that attention whore. One never does something like this to a passenger. However, I think they are both AWs and that the whole thing was staged.


Thank you. Assuming it was staged makes me feel better. I've met a few private pilots who like scaring their passengers. So far, without exception, they have turned out to be human beings not worth knowing (does not apply to military pilots. They're a different breed operating in a different environment).

I actually preferred my passengers to feel safe, comfortable, and confident in both pilot and plane.

And THEN I'd give them as much excitement as they seemed to want, ranging from "absolutely none" (my mom, first time she ever left the ground) to "hit me with your best shot", (a young friend who was a rollercoaster enthusiast).

I had a friend whose then-boyfriend began his proposal by making her think he was going to break up with her. She'd been crazy about him for years, they finally started dating and a year later, it was still clear to them both that she was much more into him than he was into her. So it was "funny."
Anyway, the way she told the story: He kept repeating, "I don't want to be your boyfriend anymore" until she finally accepted that he was really breaking up with her. As she cried hysterically, he stepped in with a loving "I want to be your HUSBAND." And she joyfully and tearfully accepted the proposal.
As she told me this story, beaming, it was all I could do not to show how disgusted I was. Happily, she eventually grew a sense of self-worth and divorced the guy. She now agrees with me that that proposal sort of epitomized everything that was so farked up about that relationship.


I call these kinds of things "Borat jokes" and I have never found them funny, and I don't how people do (especially if it's just you witnessing the "joke" between people you don't even know). Sure, maybe there's some warped people out there who think this stuff is funny--then go and play your jokes on each other and laugh your asses off. I don't think being humiliated, tricked, frightened, or scammed by someone who knows you is funny. Call me crazy.

jimmyjackfunk: First time i have seen this. I was going to ask about the FAA thing. He had to file a flight plan, but wouldn't air traffic control be monitoring his radio? I know he probably had it off where it wasn't transmitting other than in cockpit but even so and even if she doesn't file a complaint, can't the FAA take matters into their own hands?

/wife watched it with me was like oh how sweet and I was like you say that now but what if that was you in the copilot's seat? *****crickets


Not all flights require this. I don't think any private flights require this. I have been on many that don't. As far as air traffic controllers I think you have to be on their freq. Many switch channels.

Pilots out there feel free to correct me.
 
2012-10-02 03:16:30 PM
Yeah, he's flying VFR (Visual Flight Rules) which means he doesn't get a heading from a tower. You sort of make sure you don't hit anything and stay out of restricted areas. Also, he's not on the radio. He's on the Interphone or Intercom so she can hear his dumb ass over the noise of the props.

She should have started jettisoning weight in preparation for landing. Like his hair product.

jaytkay: She should have kicked him in the balls, told him to shove the ring up his ass and filed a complaint with the FAA to get his pilot's license yanked.

2012-10-02 03:38:20 PM
So I take it that all of you calling him a douche and an asshole watched the video and are just going by his general appearance, right? Because the prank itself, wasn't bad or scary. They both were really calm and weren't panicked. It didn't look like he was trying to scare her, just have a reason to open the manual.

"Can you get out the before-landing checklist and read it off to me?"

That seems like a much better "reason to open the manual" than "Uh, don't panic, but we're out of control and we'll probably crash -snicker-"

Are you a pilot? Do you know how terrifying it is when controls stop responding or pretty much anything isn't working like it should?

Not a pilot, but I have been a passenger in a very similar situation (no proposal). I'd say the girl in this video handled it much better than I did. But it looks like she never thought she was dying, just trying to resolve a problem. She didn't look panicked or really even mildly concerned until she saw the proposal.

... What if she had said "no"? Would he have actually crashed the plane?

Play a practical "joke" on me or one of my kids, good-bye. (However, play it on the OTHER kid, and I'd want video.) Know your audience.

saturn badger: Pilots out there feel free to correct me.


Flight plans help with search and rescue if you were flying direct from point A to point B and got into trouble. If you're flying in good weather under Visual Flight Rules, and using smaller airports, that's all a flight plan adds. If you need to fly through clouds, or use a major airport, they become mandatory.

I seldom bothered. The majority of my flying was for fun rather than transportation, and being late just meant I noticed something cool to circle over for a while. Or I'd be flying past some little airport I'd never bothered with, and see what looked like an on-field restaurant so I'd land just to try it. You have to call in every deviation from your flight plan, so they just don't mesh well with recreational flying IMO.

OTOH, I used a battery-powered GPS and kept a backup handheld radio with me. So I could quickly report my location even in the event of something like an electrical fire that killed power to my panel. I never had the bad luck that would show me whether that was an adequate substitute. :)

You don't understand what a "Borat joke" is. The victims of a "Borat joke" have their idiocy exposed by the joke. The humour is in the fact that they don't realize their bigotry or prejudice is being exposed and that they can't grasp that Borat is an obvious farce.

This plane thing isn't funny or cute because she was an undeserving target and the 'joke' was too extreme.

That you equate the two is baffling. I'm calling you crazy.

Someone making fun of someone else who's not in on the joke is mean. Do you not understand "mean?"

And I farking made up "Borat joke." No one has ever used that term except me, in my head, except right now, when I kind of explained what I meant by it. And now you're trying to tell me that it has a different meaning, and you're telling ME what it is? Christ, arrogant much? I bet you think it's hilarious to humiliate people and then laugh at them, too.

Has been well-answered above, but must add my two bits. He only has to be on the radio with controllers if he's inside airspace class D and above (around Chicago, that's class B). Once he's out of the special use airspace in visual flight rules, there's no requirement to be in contact. Controllers won't hear their voices, but the plane shows up on radar as a VFR flight.

I didn't see any FAA violations, not enough info to know (and he'd be stupid to post video with a known violation).

That was great! She's obviously interested because she knows how to read a checklist- which suggests she's not an idiot and likes flying. She also didn't flip out and could work the problem, which suggest he knew she wasn't going to need therapy. It's also a pretty new $300K aircraft so these aren't your average reality show contestants.

It seemed to work for them, and that's all that matters.

The best kind of Borat joke is two people actually arguing about what a Borat joke is.
