WATCH Whole Video …

This video is about a Student Pilot who has no clue of what he is doing !

Should he even be flying ?

Poor guy, there must have been a lot of pressure on him.

Yea that poor guy, I hope he continues flying after that bad experience.

Go back home, sleep, take rest, think of something else and then read books, manuals on procedures.

I completely agree with the controller. I first thought the " pilot " was joking…
He has not enough knowledge and concentration.

He should also check his ears with a FAA doctor.

No one with the dream of flying should let a silly mistake get to them. He must have been really nervous. A lot of things would have been going through my head if I was in his situation.

Umm… It is dangerous to fly with that low level of concentration.

Can’t help but feel a wee bit sorry for him. He definitely needs his ears cleaned out though!

Its stupid of him to fly with out radio knowledge.
On the other side I think it was the pressure on him.

The thing is the ATC was clear and he repeated, so how could the pilot not understand?! 🤔

Wow, he was not ready to solo.
Fail on all ATC instructions
No airport familiarization
Completely lost on how to read taxiway signs
Didnt know s**t about traffic patterns.

Poor guy, totally overcome with anxiety. He actually might know some of this but all knowledge went right out the window.

I remember my first solo cross country in a C-152 from KFUL to KOXR. I can empathize but he needs a lot of work more work.

I’m not a pilot, but what I think I gathered from the comments on seeing this before was that if he had simply identified himself as a student pilot to the controller a lot of this could have been avoided. I think the pilot was just trying to follow the common routine of entering on the downwind and was confused when the controller switched things up.
