I have done that too, ATC just kept holding me short for 20 without any traffic on the airport… But also cause I was late for school xD
Ahhhh let’s see… so a while back on expert I was flying a BA A320 from Poland to London. Everything was perfect anything a pilot can ask for. So I’m getting ready to land on the runway about 4 planes lining up waiting for me to arrive. Spoilers were armed, flaps were down . Landing lights and strobe lights were on, fasten seatbelt sign was on. Here I am about to grease the landing… 50,40,30,20,10 TOUCHDOWN. Right smack down on the center line with a side of extra butter. But something seemed off, my plane was slowing down a bit to fast and when I tried to exit the runway my plane wouldn’t move and came to a complete stop. I go to the outside view and would you look at that… I forgot the darn gears the most important part of landing. And there I sat like a noob on the runway in front of all the pilots that were probably thinking “ what the hell is this guy doing on the expert server “. Yes it was indeed the most stupidest thing I have ever done and don’t let me tell you how mad I was .
Youre not the only one, I racked up 100 violations in my first couple of months.
I was still Grade 2 and needed to do 2 more landings to be Grade 3. I was sooo excited ! So I went to a random airport, did one touch and go with a fighter. When I was airborne again, I tought: “Let’s finish Grade 2 in beauty…”. I did a biiiiiig looping.
Result: Violation for aerobatics in an airspace. - > I had to wait one week until I could be Grade 3.
Flying over 250 knots below 10,000 feet
Yep, I saw it 😂😂
Flown a transatlantic out of JFK and fall asleep before I turned east. I woke up and I was near the North Pole
Kinda the same situation… I was in the middle of a csgo match and was also descending into KLAX and I set my speed to 220 but my plane didn’t slow down and I ended up getting 5 violations
only 5? get on my level :joy:
emojis didnt work:(
Forgetting to tune into ground and request taxi to parking after landing a 13hr flight. Got reported for it too :/
It’s so fun to do that. But only on solo mode.
For me, it was probably falling asleep while controlling on expert. It was “great fun” waking up and realizing I screwed up big time 😅
But mine are great. A heavy crosswind and I overcorrected for the rudder, initiated a go around and the plane entered a flat spin and I crashed and burned with everyone watching (at a busy airport), I got a violation for performing stunts in airport airspace. Also a TON of times where I landed with spoilers in flight mode and before pushback turning on all of my engines and lights.
So, I’m going to be 100% I’ve done 2 really stupid things in my early days of flying, the first one was I didn’t slow down enough and slid off the runway at LAX into the ocean, the second time was I didn’t enter my altitude in correct and hit the mountains North East of LAX while departing
Landing to Denver considering the altitude was 400 feet instead of 5400 ft. I had missed the 5. Need glasses.
I was in solo so I went back 20 seconds and saved my flight by miracle
I was once doing a long haul that I had let run over night, I believe it was EGLL - KDFW. Anyways I had about 10 minutes left of the flight left everything was looking good. Smooth speed, little wind, I was setup for the perfect landing. I continued to make my descent to 2500 ft MSL. 10,000 ft AGL,
6000 ft AGL, 4000 ft AGL, 2500 ft AGL, I wasn’t paying attention to the ground level metre, I was paying attention to sea level metre… 1500 AGL… I guess I didn’t hear the call outs, it was around 500 ft AGL that I heard the fallout realized that I was way too close to the ground. It then clicked that I had been paying attention to the wrong altitude metre I panicked and tried to disable auto pilot, but I was descending at approximately 2000 fpm so by the time I maxed the throttle and attempted to pull up, it was too late. I crashed smack down in Dallas about 5 minutes from touchdown. Had to start the whole 12 hour flight or whatever it was from the beginning… It was that day I realized you should always check the altitude of the airport, pay attention to your AGL metre and also descend a lot more steadier…
I was pretty new to IF and just got onto training server. I wanted to do a flight from EGLL-KJFK. I didn’t really know about fuel not being accurate for the first few hours of a medium to long haul flight, so I decided that I was going to land on water to refuel. I ended up getting 4 violations for that one.
(I didn’t know you could only do that with brakes set at an airport)
I forgot to clear @Mark_Denton for takeoff on expert. Stupid and embarrassing.
Holy crap what happens afterwards? Like what was the result?
