right, I know that this has already appeared in a couple of older threads, but......

What is a general day like for a pilot, either helo/FJ, on ship/ground. Oh and maybe a little 'true' chat about flying training. I would like to hear some genuine replies if thats possible ;), no sore AET's! haha
 
Don't you know the words to "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines" :roll:

Thats a typical day :grin: :grin:

Honestly, don't know but i'm sure some of the woo's will fill you in mate :wink:

Turn to 2 hours after everyone else, do feck all, go home 2 hours before everyone else. Remember to tell everyone you are a "Pilot don't you know" and very very important, drip like a septic about how long your working hours are, also remember to check how far you have progressed up the aviator's pay spine today £100k or still just the £95k.

Well that's what it's like where I work :lol:

You know what they say Chiefy, if you'd worked harder at school..... :twisted:

The world is split into two groups: "Those that are aviators and those that want to be"

Gk,
If I had worked any harder at school? You mean if I had gone to school!

You better crack on and tell blimy what life's really like for you guys or this will be in the papers tomorrow and you'll all be redundant..... :mrgreen:
 
Green King, I know some AET's that are better qualified than some pilots. I think your little adage is a bit long in the tooth now. Get the 'chaps' in the briefing room for a think tank and come up with some new ones. That'll fill your day! :lol:

Helicopter = Air borne Car
Now is it more skilled to drive a car of fix it when some numpty breaks it.
I know of not a single case of someone who employs a chauffeur to drive his car because it is difficult but will change the gearbox because it is easy
I rest my case.

Turn too late get, get the overworked CPO/PO to do the RORRS3 ( write ups) that you forgot, perform a heroic task of rescuing 26 sailors off a sinking cargo vessel, break the Helo in the process, get on the tele, make the CPO/PO LH and AET`s to stay up all night to fix the bloody thing and do it all again tomorrow, then have the rest of the week off.

At the end of the days flying the whole flight work together to fresh water wash the Lynx followed by a PX24 wipe-down. Sorry whole flight minus pilot & observer who are shagged out from the four hours flying exercises that they have performed.
Lynx then put into anger and Flex ops and maintenance carried out by ground crew. Typical ground crew day twelve hours. typical aircrew day six hours consisting of four hours flying plus two hours briefing debriefing.
Do not make a mistake go aircrew!
 
we used to have a RED LETTER DAY every year on my last carrier - the whole aircrew came and helped wash the jets.

it was a nice day and they spent more time posing than washing.

another time they came and helped the lads chip the rust of the catwalks for nearly 5 minutes before pissing off for a

Do you remember when NASA sent monkeys into space? They would fly in the capsule for a couple of orbits (a sortie if you like).
Now upon the capules safe return and recovery NASA never, ever, ever asked the monkey to fix the rocket and capsule before sending it flying again.

During my 24 years as a wafu tiff this tale was reserved for the aircrew who often mistakenly thought they could fault diagnose and drive the cab. Everyone knows we can't multi-task, just check with the wife for clarification
