What is your ,,Uh oh" moment? Part 2

Well, the first topic was closed… sad. Let’s continue it here, shall we? My biggest uh oh was when I stalled out in Frankfurt in front of @Pilot_Aaltonen (AYVA’s CEO) and the ex-Community Manager @pilot_jonttu . That was embarrasing.

Started my takeoff roll, realised about halfway down the runway that I wasn’t picking up speed like I should. It was passed V1 so I had to continue the takeoff. Kept thinking it was a glitch with the parking break or something. At this point, I’m close to the end of the runway and I reach Vr and rotate. I’m rotating while crossing through my systems and realise I took off with only one engine. Let me tell you, you will never appreciate a healthy climb out like I would have appreciated it in that moment. Having to almost level off so you don’t stall? Whew

Forgetting that you needed to start your decent at a specific time. You jump on Infinite Flight and find your plane over 30000 feet over your destination Airport…

Forgetting to hit LNAV on a long-haul from LAX, and waking up over the Pacific Ocean headed west instead of Europe. Diverted to VHHH like nothing happened…

Taking off overweight, figuring out you can’t rotate in time, past V1 speed. It’s even more embarrassing when it’s the popular airport

Once I was taking part in the ‘Gatwick fly in’ event and was taxiing to the runway and Dan (who is streaming it live on yt) has already took off and was in climb. While i was taxiing on a single taxiway the aircraft ahead of me didnt move for a long time So i literally Overtaked him through grass and recieved a level 3 violation from Balacachini.
