Here we go… Part 1 of IF Stereotypes. We hope to get out one par a week, so keep an eye out for ‘em. Thanks to @Meowz and @Butter_Boi for collaborating with me on this. They come up with ideas for this, and proofread the final post. If you want to join our little collab team, just PM me and I’ll see if I can fit you in.
Without further ado, here are the first five IF stereotypes for Part 1!
- Mr. Takes off the wrong way.
We all know this guy… he’s supposed to take off 18L but takes off 36R. This is when ATC reports come in handy.
- The guy who uses WPT-KLAX.
Not much to explain for that one. All that’s left to say is the IFATC voice that says [insert callsign here] you are in an active airspace. Contact SOCAL departure on 149.3… or whatever it says.
- The guy that thinks he can cut you because he’s in a bigger airplane.
We’ve all encountered this guy. You’re in a TBM930 and he’s in an A350, and he thinks he can drive right over you.
- Mr. Regional Flight in a Jumbo
KSFO-KLAX? Sounds like a great flight for an ERJ or an A318, right? Nope. This guy uses an A380. Oh well. So much for realism.
- The Drifter
The guy’s in a CRJ-200 and he thinks he’s a drift race car. Either that or he doesn’t know how to taxi an aircraft. Or he’s late for lunch. The real reason we will never know.
That’s it for Part 1. We’re all guilty of one of these, whether it was us fooling around or noob moments in our earlier days of IF. Vote in the poll below below which one you have done, and tell me an interesting story in the comments.
Thanks for reading and be sure to look out for Part 2!
