Funny questions that a pilot or builder has been asked?

Postby David » Tue Jul 09, 2013 2:13 pm

I thought I would start a thread we all could relate too. I have had may questions asked re: the building of a plane and just as a owner and pilot of a small plane.

"When are you gonna FLY that thing?"
My answer: "Not before it's ready and out of the living room.

Then the next Question is how you going to get it out of the house and are you going to fly it to the airport.
My answer: " Oops I didn't think of that - I don't know" - laugh and then explain

“What do you do when you get low on fuel?”
My answer: With a very serious look and no smile “fill it up” :roll:

Guys I'm sure each of you have also had your share of questions - share them :lol:

A recent one I saw on AvWeb:

TraCon Controller to Pilot: Grumman 405, what is your position?
Grumman 405: Fiscally conservative, socially pretty liberal - pause - and 5 DME from SEQUE.

Bought a airplane magazine at a bookstore once and the young clerk asked if I was a pilot. When I answered in the affirmative, she got very excited and asked breathlessly...."Do you know John Travolta?"

Blonde:- "Mister, what's the propeller for?"

Pilot:- "That tells me that the engine is running"

Blonde :- Why does it turn so fast?

Pilot:- "Because if it stayed still then the fuselage would turn so fast I'd get sick"

Blonde :- "If it did, how would you get in?"

Japanese flight students tend to be the better Asian students that you'd want to be assigned. Although there was that guy in one of IASCO's King Airs that came up on Oakland Center reporting VFR at 19.5 requesting flight following. Oakland came back with an incredulous, "19.5? You can't be there!" To which JAL replied, "No, we can. This SUPER KingAir!"

(seen at Purple Board in the Asiana 214 thread)
