High speed low passes by such hot planes like 172s. Come on---- P-38s or BF-109s maybe but 172s?????
Unattended planes at the fuel pump - second only to pilots carefully attaching 300-400 go pro cameras at the fuel pump.
I did that once in a 188. But to add a little extra I went downwind with a tailwind of ~15kts. Had about 90 gallons of water on, and dumped it at the end when I started my pull-up. WEEEE!
About 30 years ago a college with a flight department 30 miles away sometimes their planes would land, taxi back and hold short of the runway blocking the taxiway with the prop ticking over leaving departing aircraft no way to get around them. They would sit there for 30 minutes sometimes much more. The airport management called the college several times with no results. A couple of FAA guys just happened to fly down to get some gas one day and got blocked behind one of the college planes. After several calls on the radio they shut down, walked up to the plane blocking the taxiway and ramp checked them. After that they flew down to the college and had a long talk with the director of the flight department. I talked with one of the inspectors a few months later renewing my CFI and he said they found out the kids were sitting there racking up flight time. Anyway it took care of that problem. A few years later they shut down the flight department.
Why not fly to rack up time, instead of sitting on the ramp, blocking other traffic?
Maybe they rented dry?
Aye. Fuel is cheaper at idle.
Audi driving idiots who leave the rear fog lights that they don't even know their vehicle has, activated in good weather.
I remembered one today; a guy on ifr flight plan to an non towered field says, "N1234 field in sight" to which atc is obliged to say the long spiel, "N1234 cleared for the visual, no traffic observed, switch to advisory, report cancellation with me or to FSS etc".
THEN pilot says "cancel ifr". To which atc is obligated to reply with the equally long "so-long vfr guy" spiel!
Gawd, if you have the field in sight and plan to cancel, Do So!
"N1234 field in sight And. Cancel. Ifr."!
One of my pet peeves is on one of the flying forums I belong to where most of us have one plane and sometimes its all we can do to keep up with the expense of owning that one plane...some jackhole comes along and asks what he should buy for a second plane, you know, just for fun.
P-factor. Why don't they build planes with props that turn the other direction so P-factor isn't a problem on takeoff?
If you fly in Australia, the prop spins the opposite direction.
P factor would be a problem with the prop spinning in either direction. In Aussie land or England learn to use left rudder on takeoff.
Peeve: Pilots who are too lazy or dumb to read and follow the NOTAMed procedures when arriving at a special event like SnF or Oshkosh.
Yep, has to do with the coriolis effect. Just like how the water in their drains go the opposite to ours.
Um it has to do with which direction the prop turns. A Cessna down under still needs right rudder!

They do. They even make twins that counterrotate.
And contra-rotating propellers mounted on a single engine, in case you want to have all of the maintenance costs of a twin without any of the redundancy just so you don't have to exercise your leg muscles on takeoff.
If you want a prop that turns the wrong way, fly a Russian plane (like a Yak). Give it lots of left rudder for high power situations.
