Fence hugging.....♥Princess Bea...lesson...♥Dave's ......."Sim" adventure.............so cool.!!!! Welcome Francois..........!!!!!!




What this video proves is it takes one 'Fence Hugger' to know another.........OMG......the wingtip comes close...........LOVE IT..........Awesome  Video.........GG........♥
'Princess Bea'...being 'groomed' properly for fence hugging.....jetspotting...from her Mother(GG)...♥






Please if I can have a moment....of your time.........aside from those..............I know..........that at times I let a lot of time go by before I 'post'.......but that I don't post as I say........please forgive me..........your visit here.........is SO appreciated.........I just wanted to to say this...............to those........

And as far as 'comments'.........are not what I want.........but for those who visit......to leave with a shit eating grin...........at the very least.......and also........not to be too upset........that I procastinated...........!!??
NOPE...THE RUMORS........THAT I'M DEAD, ARE ALL FALSE.......so get back on your knees.......and keep praying..........to all our Aviation peeps..........

 DAVE........had a very very Big day last month.......on the 'Sim'......I'll let him tell in his own words.......but first......I added alot of 'fluff'...........or silly ass shit in between Dave's words........so please do read..........you may be called as a witness...................
A quick note about my visit to CTC Aviation in Southampton, UK. CTC offer a full(Potty) training program from virgin(FLOOZIES TOOOOOO) to airline pilot, they train all of the Easyjet (Mmmm)in the UK (Easyjet is a UK Low Cost Carrier)...$5.00 will only get you 2 minutes on MOST sims............Eshhhhhhhhhhh


I have visited CTC before when I sneaked in to an open day for prospective trainees!......Yea you sneak........LOL.......


Hello Dave's.........
 perched in his......F/O seat...
as he begins his 'Sim' adventure.....
here we goooooooooooooooo, I got to say...Dave..........your kinda cute......omg.....that was a weak moment....ughhh.....LOL



First of a couple of videos...........They are Awesome..............Oh Dave............
your the Shit.... 

http://youtu.be/ZXMNidhl1hI



Michael  my Instructor, like they were lined up...... was a retired captain who finished his career on the 747...... He couldn't have been nicer or more patient,......practice for 'Sainthood'......lol..........he's going straight to heaven........for this.......... we discussed my level "IN"experience and we agreed to practice some touch and go's for the next 2 years..........and basically anything I wanted.........funny when Dave asked for a drive through for fried chicken...........and daiquiri shop to go......OH MR. 747 DIDN'T SEEMED AMUSED.........HIS LOSS...........!!


We chose Gatwick (EGKK) in the UK, is there another......... as it is an area and airport I know well from "SLACKING..........."my desktop sim and we started with a taxi around on the ground to get the feel of the aircraft. (that 'feel' will get ya 1 to 5 yrs in the pen)I choose the First Officer's seat as that most closely matched my set up on my home system.........yea yea yea........;)







We began powered up and ready to go after the briefest of setup on the flight computer, when we started to taxi I couldn't believe it, we could feel every bump and crack....DIDN'T I TELL YOU ""NOT"" TO EAT BEANS THE NIGHT BEFORE..............BUT.........NOOOOOOOOOOOOO
 on the apron(like you cook) as the aircraft gathered speed, the full motion sim felt unbelievably realistic!(PERV)
 We had to wear safety harnesses
(I'm wearing a 'Safty' harness now.......
while putting this together)....... in case(WE HAD OPTIONS  ?????)
had an accident!

Once cleared to take to the air, I pushed on the thrust leavers and there was that familiar kick in the pants(LU LU BELL.........PERFECT TIMING.) we all get when we sit in the back on our way to who knows where.(yea like from Pat O'Briens) We were soon at Vr and I was pulling back on the sidestick, (SOUNDS LIKE A PERSONAL PROBLEM......)gingerly at first then quickly attuned to the sensitivity, and boy was it sensitive!(NOT TOUCHING THIS WITH A 10 FT POLE)... After a couple(HUNDRED) of over controls I soon got the measure, no floating of the FAs and no sick bags required!
(GEEEEE.....THANKS)

I took my friend Jason along (yea you can kiss his ass good-bye)for the ride(YEA I HEARD HE FLED TO TURKEY) as I really wanted some video to keep, he is not a videographer and we took it on a little camera so apologies for the quality(BAD IS BAD...........NO MATTER......) but I am pleased to have a small memento of the session.(Viagra) He sat in the Captain's seat and was quite keen to ask questions and chat to our Instructor - (YEA.......IF YOU LIKE YOUR....YOUR LIFE)I had to ask them to pipe down(PIPE DOWN...........I GOT A SPECIAL PIPE ALRIGHT.) a couple of times as I was concentrating on the approach! (HE WAS FANCYING HIS LIFE AS IT WAS BEFORE....We even roped him in to operate the flaps and undercarriage LOL(I GOT NEWS, HE VOLUNTEERED)!


 Dave's second video...............What a PRO.....!!!!......he talks about his 'Stick'...........Cover your children's eyes.......and ears................lol
  http://youtu.be/ZXMNidhl1hI

 
All too quickly the session was over(you can only keep the NTSB away so long..........jeezus Dave) and I could barely walk out of the sim (being combative gets ya perks...called a'gurney' )as my smile was so wide
( I don't even want to know how much you paid for that smile....)!!??

I had a great time and would do it again in a heartbeat, I am already saving the pennies!

All the best!
D


Dave ......I am so damn proud of you......that took balls...........at least now, I know who Won't be flying...my plane......KIDDING....I would fly with you.....no matter how many levee's you ended up on.....oh yea that reminds me.......DAVE.........did you think I would forget..........This....................Another levee.......under your belt...........DAVE........LOL

Thank you so much for these lovely posts and the spirit that comes with them !!!
I adore this " atmosphere "

Dave W said...

LOL, trust you to put the "MissTWA spin" on the post - hilarious!

D'ya know, I re-watched the video, I hadn't even noticed I'd been talking about "waggling my stick at home in front of the computer" jeesh, what was I thinking!! LOL

It was such a fun day, I specifically flew an ILS approach to minimums as suggested by Cap'n Aux and everyone survived, I was very chuffed with myself!

Thanks for posting Jules, you are very kind (occasionally)

D from the UK :)

(Greetings Francois!)

Giulia said...

Dave, I am envious of you!!! I watched the video over and over. Did you mean to post two of the same videos?

You didn't pick me up though...I was waiting and waiting. Security came and shoo'd me away from the fence.

Julie hung out her bloomers but you didn't pick up the bloomer beacon. :(

Oh well, next time!

And Julie, those comments are hilarious. It is surprising that anyone still speaks to you. You are such a smart a**. But a lovely, sweet smart a**.

Thank you for the super post! Thank you, Dave for sharing this day (and making everyone jealous). And hello, Francois. Welcome! :)

Dave W said...

Hey GG, good spot on the video link, I can't take credit though - I'm guessing someone may have had one too many Crown Royals before posting! LOL

If you follow the link you will find 3 videos altogether on my YouTube channel..

I would love to have had a fellow geek beside me, my friend Jason was a little overawed, he kept videoing out the window so I asked him to film the instruments!

Saving hard for the next sim session, I'll give you a call :)

Giulia said...

I agree...too many Crown Royals before AND during the posting process. Ahem, Jules. And can ya clean up the spelling errors. -5 marks

Jason did a good job; however, I agree that you needed less window view and more instruments! Everyone has to learn somewhere. Good work, anyway, Jason! + 3 marks

Next time you're in the sim, call me and Jules. Then you will have the appropriate amount of screams and squeals with some obnoxious hand slapping while you try to fly. Everyone will get in the mix. +100 marks

There. Final mark= 98!!!!
You'll still be a winner!

P.S Don't leave us hanging. Look for the LARGE pink briefs...with polkie polka dots. And a few tired bows on it.

Bloomer beacon. Follow it.

Got it?

Ahem.

getjets said...

Giulia said...

Hey, Jules...

Love that A330 video. Did you see how close that wing gets to the fence? It is so cool!!

And that jet blast!!! Love the smell of jet fuel...is that worrisome?

Ha ha...

Love you.

And hello to everyone else.

Dave W said...

What a cracking video! Those squeals of delight are so infectious!

You should have taken marshmallows to toast on the jet exhaust! Teehee!

Bas said...

MissTWA spin, ghehehehe, I like that!

...and everyone survived! Hah! That is nearly convinving, still not getting on board Dave! Nope!

Bas said...

By the way, we've got our first 787 operating out of Schiphol here in the NL :D

Arkefly, from the operator of TUI. I think Thomson is also part of it, Dave's Maledives Airline :D

Giulia said...

Hi Bas,

I've seen the Air Canada 787 at YOW. It was doing touch n go tests (YOW to Mirabel Mtl).

It was soooooo cool!! Maybe I will ask Jules to post the pics.

And Dave, the squeals and laughs are mandatory at the fence.

Exhaust marshmallows? P.U. I'll pass. xo
