You almost crash your car because you are craning your neck to look out the sunroof at landing aircraft.


Every takeoff is optional, but every landing is mandatory.

when driving around you work out how much fuel your guzzling down and exactly how far you'll go before you run out.

1. You walk down the street looking at the sky.

2. You tune into Heathrow Approach on your scanner at 2am when there is no traffic! (Only done that when drunk!)

3. You put Heathrow arrivals on ceefax when nothing else is on TV!

(We actually did that!!!)

I've also heard stories about other people riding the airport beacon at night and drag racing down the runways in their cars...

*you know already wich type is coming along according to the sound it makes.
*when driving in the fog you look at your dashboard.
*when ordering from a drive-in, you sign in with your last used reg for a flight.
*when accelerating on the highway ramp, you turn on your main headlights, you do the same when you are braking from the highway onto the ramp.
*In a traffic jam you request for a diversion airfield on the radio commentator reporting the jam.
*when your kid makes a sudden noise or grasps accedentally your neck you search the transponder for the 7777 highjack code.
*you give a report to the passengers in your car when you turn on the cruise control and give a current temperature readout and ETA.

Haha I can do all of those.

Mine...You know your addicted to aviation when...your flight simulator folder is 16 GIGA BYTES!

...you've been planning your family's vacations since you were twelve based on what kind of planes you can find.

...you'd go several hours out of the way to fly on a plane bigger than a 757, and or make more than one connection. (AUS-DFW-ORD-MSP baby!)

Quoting Boeingfanyyz (Thread starter):
You Know You're Addicted To Aviation When...

...you successfully transfer the aviation-virus to some of your relatives and/or friends.

...when you're planning your holiday flights - always choose the ones with the most connections or prefer the ones with aircraft types you haven't flown on yet.

...departure day - you arrive at the airport in the morning although your flight only leaves late in the afternoon.


and many of those mentioned above.

Thats exactly what I do all the time!! We have TG on our license plate, so I am quick to say we come from Guatemala, or we fly Thai Airways.
