Universal "thank you"

New thought: what if the universal “thank you” when on uncontrolled airports was to activate your spoilers then immediately turning them off. Almost like you were waving at the other pilot. Just a thought I believed would be good.

That is a good idea, however, people dont follow it irl

Good point. But I mean as long as people know it means “thank you” than I figure why not. Just gotta spread the word I suppose.

You can do it I guess… I just don’t know if people will understand the message.

On these rare occasions I prefer flashing the landing lights instead

Same here, I flash my landing lights once or twice or my strobe light ones to say things like; “You may go first”, “Thank You”, “You’re Welcome”, etc… I feel like flashing lights is more natural, as that’s what I do when I say thank you to other drivers irl in the nigh when they can’t see me wave thank you to them. Signaling with lights seems to me to be a more universal thing to do, when you can’t visibly with hand gestures show your gratitude.

Maybe I’ll do so too, but it’ll probably be better at night.
