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.
Mine was when I realized about halfway through a flight from EGLL to KJFK that I didn’t have enough fuel…
I have no “Uh oh” moments.
when i was flying from omdb to egll in the emirates a380 and had make an emergency landing in frankfurt because i didnt put it enough fuel lol
happens to the best of us
Thanks for continuing this 🙏 I shall give you the rights to the Uh oh series.
mine was when I stalled out in the middle of the Pacific on a flight to Japan.
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
Its called running out of fuel on 1 1/2 mile final………… after a 14hour flight 😂 😭
Prob the most emotional pain I have ever felt in my IF career.
just after takeoff at what i thought was an uncontrolled airport 200 feet in the air retracting the gear, realizing i didnt get takeoff clearance knowing ill be reported in a matter of seconds… oops… goodbye expert server for 1 week… rookie mistake.
whenever someone needs me while i’m in an important flight stage
stuff like this happens to us lol
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
I stalled and crashed on a check flight…
Ouch… I can feel that pain
#support go there and report this
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.
