What is the Cringiest Thing You Have Seen on Infinite Flight?

During my first IFATC practical, having a grade 2 requesting takeoff in the pattern and then departing forcing me to resequence everyone.

Not sure if that’s cringey or if I’m just still salty lol.

Every time I see the word “butter” being used for a smooth landing, it’s literally paralyzingly cringe!

It can only be done with skill and an understanding of the aircraft.

Probably people who fly with their spoilers set to the flight position while airborne the whole duration of the flight.

When you are on ATC (exp) and you give a sequence, #2 follow traffic X and that person darts in trying to get in 1st

That’s pretty much every server ha

Watched a C-130H (sorry, my memory isn’t 100 percent) fly across the runway 10 feet off the ground about two feet in front of a plane on takeoff roll at JFK the other day.

He didn’t make it to wherever he thought he was going, needless to say.

I’ve seen users take adjacent taxiways to each other to see who can get to the runway first. It’s quite amusing rather than cringy, but I find it annoying once they start taxiing at 34kts. Haha

Two cringiest things

  1. The casual server, I think nothing will ever top this.

  2. flying into PHNL today I am coming on final and I announced I was final and someone took off and I was fine with it as I was still far out. But then I get to short final…
    someone announces he is going to take off and I quickly announced for the third time I was landing and I got frustrated as I was there and doing a stable approach with the 717 and I thought ok I will just land above him, but karma comes around and he was ghosted and I laughed super hard lol. it was like the moment when you see someone driving and he runs a red light right in front of a cop
