I noticed that a thread got closed a couple of days ago about everyone sharing their ghosting stories:
I really want to thank First_Officer_Lee because this was an inspiration from his own post.
But with the new update, we got a new system of violations. So I thought it would be very interesting to share your violation stories (Level 1, 2, 3)!
Have you received a level 1,2,3 violation yet?
This thread is not in any way designed to bully, tease or make anyone ashamed of getting a violation because we all make mistakes and that is A-OKAY If I see this happen or if I see anyone comment such a thing I will flag it and get moderators involved if needed (Also if you see any of this behavior please let me know or the moderators). I don’t want any of this to happen. So please let’s keep this community a warm and welcoming place 😄👍
I want to see this topic used as a place where we can learn from each other’s mistakes and our own so we can help each other become better IF pilots!
I’ll start off with my story:
I got a level 3 violation. (Yes, I am aware, it is a big oopsy). I entered a runway without permission because I thought I was cleared to take off 😅. Sorry if you were the controller who saw me do this on KLGB.
I’ve never been reported but my funniest level 1 violation was when I was doing a continental US flight (KJFK - KSEA). Everything was all good so I decided to eat before I landed.
I came back and I saw the big word CRASH on my screen with a violation warning for aerobatics near airports in the background. I go to check my log and I received not one, not two, but 3 violations (2 for speed and one for aerobatics).
The winds destroyed my plane but now I know to never leave my plane unattended if it is a narrow body jet in extreme winds
I remember one of my first time son expert, i did a flight from KJFK to OMDB in the 777-300ER. I started the flight and everything aws great, i got to cruise, and after that i went to eat dinner. When i came back i saw that i had crashed and gotten 5 level 1 violations. That is over 1 year ago so all of them is gone.
my story is how like i got distracted by watching cartoon (I was watching looney tunes) then i didnt realized that i got speed viotions under FL100 also this was around version 19.3 so i havent got violated but i did get ghosted twice
My two first times and last that I did violations were the same day and flight.
I was flying from EHAM to EGLL, when I was descending to approach Heathrow, the door was rung and I went to open it so when I checked my plane, it was under FL100, flying at 270 and I received the warnings and violations.
Nowadays I check my descents at the beginning and since the last violations I have never been warned.
ive gotton alot for oversleeping and i once got a level 3 violation on my first expert flight before 20.1 becvause i was a noob taxied to worong runway taxied through a plane taxied at 30 kts in a 172 and landed in wrong runway
