How To Get The Cockpit Final Approach Shot?

Hi,
So I've just recently gotten into taking photos and I've noticed that there are a few cockpit and final approach shots on airliners.net .
My question is how do you get them? When I've been on mid-afternoon flights the cockpit door always remains closed until all passengers have disembarked, but when I was on the first flight out (6:05am), the cockpit door was open when we were fully on the ground. Is that the time to ask?
But also, what about when you want to get the final approach cockpit shot? How do you go about asking?
Thanks everyone

Welcome!

My understanding is that post-September 11th most airlines changed their regulations such that it would be an offence for any members of the public to enter the flightdeck whilst the aircraft was airborne and the engines fired up. I know for a fact that pilots in many airlines would get into serious trouble if they allowed people on to the flightdeck when flying - even their own friends. It would be a disciplinary offence.

My assumption now is that the only possibility for us mere mortals is to ask the question about being allowed up after the plane is safely on the ground and the engines have been shut down and at the end of a flight.

Hence I assume most of the photos we now see are by people who work for the airline. For those who don't fit that bill .......... they are probably doing something/have some arrangement that you and I cannot and/or should not do. I would be interested to know!

In general, forget about US, UK and Canadian airlines if you are just a member of the public. With other airlines, different rules can apply. Many will turn you away but there are airlines and crew members who are happy to have you on board. That way I have jumpseated countless of times both as a general passenger.

It is the trick of getting to know who does and who doesn't allow it, and how to present it. I will leave you to figure that out  .

oh, have you really been in cockpit during flight?!?!?
You are a lucky boy!!! ... and you just asked to the flight attendants during the flight, correct?

anyway... my experience is strictly limited to short cockpit visits, on ground, usually after landing... I just asked the permission before leaving the aircraft ( I always get off from the front door)
I've taken about 20/30 flights till now, and I always have been let to do some chatting with pilots in cockpit... only once I have been refused, but a cpt exam was in progress, so it was better not to disturb!  
before leaving, just ask if could take a shot... and you'll been satisfied!!!  

but now, can anyone tell me about how does things work in USA, UK, and Canada airlines? I mean, after landing, may you ask to visit the cockpit without any problem, or you'll be considered a terrorist? -.-"

Matteo

p.s.: I know, "visit the cockpit" does not sounds good at all, but I didn't know how to say it, sorry for that.

You will never get into a cockpit mid-flight, simple as that. No matter who you know, even if your Dad is the Captain, it won't happen to or from the United States of America.

Getting in before or after is a breeze, I get in on every flight. Check out my cockpit shots, you might like em.

JRadier is making that up, unless that's how they do it in the Netherlands only.

The only photos you will see on here mid-flight, on final or anything else up in the air are from members of the flight crew. Sergio Mota has heaps of great in-flight shots, final shots, etc. ... but he is a Flight Attendant.

Best wishes in getting access ... before or after only though.

I wholeheartedly agree with you Jurgen, I have managed the same many times. After a while, it becomes easier but still getting into the cockpit is a hit and miss kind of situation, depends on many many things, especially the Captain.

I have been flamed earlier for saying that I have visited a cockpit of an A320 inflight in US airspace (in 2007). Its fine if people dont want to believe me. I am by no means saying its easy or alot of people allow it, but its silly to say that its impossible. Am i a threat to security? No..... and thats exactly what the pilots examine in their heads each time they have let me in. Things like my flight log, photographs in it, etc ,etc all make it a bit easier.

My best experience has been with KL pilots, they are undoubtedly the most proud and most supportive pilots around. If they dont let you in, they will take your camera and do cool things like this:

Pilots in Europe seem more tuned towards supporting our hobby and understand us and of course they can tell an enthusiast from a threat.

Just my 2 paise.

Yea, you all can continue to post and repost what I said, still doesn't change it ... but, I'll add that "unless that's how they do it in a select few countries around the world" ... For all of you that are such pros at getting into the cockpit midflight, show me your shots! Talk is easy on a forum but actually coming thru on your words is different.

And to Jurgen, no sir, no apology here. Sorry mate. You've got that 1 shot from a small airline that I've never heard of so I'd imagine that's quite easy. I refer to big airlines, e.g., British Airways, Japan Airlines, Korean Airlines, Emirates, Singapore, Qantas, Lufthansa, KLM, American, Air Canada ... I think you get the point.

I definitely know you wouldn't get into an A320 cockpit in 2007 in the USA, so I see why you were "flamed". And yea, I'm no security threat either, a young guy with a Pilots license who will one day be up there myself ... But, those are the rules set by the airlines, not by the crew. I've had great conversations with many Pilots before we are even in the aircraft, laughing and having a great time and they've always said "I'd love to let you up inflight but we could lose our jobs if the superiors found out", so that's the reason. If it were based off of personal decisions, I would have 100+ inflight cockpit shots because I get along with every Pilot. But, the next best thing is a shot taken before or afterward and I've got plenty of those.

So, again, I stand by what I said. Yea, Jurgen, you've got 1 inflight shot. Show me some more, on a MAJOR airline that anybody from any land would recognize and I'll give some credibility to your words.

Much love.

Anyone know the process "Just Planes Videos" goes through to do their World Air Routes series?

Also, with the flight deck photos taken during short final, wouldn't the sound of the camera and/or flash be a distraction to the flight crew when their concentration is most needed?

Generally find flight crews very friendly and willing to chat after plane parked and they open the flight deck door. Had not thought of giving camera to flight crew before flight and asking them to take en-route photos...are there pilots out there that would do this for passengers that ask nicely, or would there be a regulation against this?

Myself have only been able to visit flight deck of Singapore 742s...this was enroute over Pacific during early 1980s as a minor. Also remember being on commuter flights years ago where only a curtain (usually open) separated passenger cabin from flight deck.

Peter,

It is human to make mistakes and not know things, I'm guilty of that as well. Making a claim that I'm making something up is a serious one, but hey, if those are your words... However, in my opinion it shows character when you are able to say that you made a mistake.

I showed you that you were wrong, but you now changed the rules... Why I don't know, because Welcome Air is bound my the same regulations as the majors. Also your list of majors include some where I already said it was virtually impossible (BA, American, Air Canada), but I have flown others on your list. I do not have photo's online nor am I able to upload them at this moment. For that you will have to do with some photo's of Deaphen, who indicated that he has flown jumpseat with KLM before (see above).

You're a new kid around the block here that no one knows, you asked a question, and got an answer. Yet you feel like you're a know-it-all kind of guy (google hazardous attitudes for pilots sometime) and say the credibility of a long-time, well-respected photographer on here is flawed.

I don't even care to show my jumpseat photos, because it seems that would be a waste of time. Think what you want and stop wasting people's time.

Is that the time to ask?

The time to ask is before the flight, before you even get on the plane - and maybe take along some high quality promotional prints as free handouts along with your business card.

It's probably better to do it with predictable airlines that you know, and especially - with staff who you know. And it's also good to ask out of sight of the regular passengers. Don't put the staff in an unacceptable situation.

There are certain airlines where I would never ask - and certain countries where I'd never ask. Some countries and the general public in those countries still see photographers as terrorists.

My good mate, Jurgen ... so you're looking for me to say that possibilties exist outside the US? I'll repeat what I've already said: Yes, in a select few countries, they do (perhaps). With that said, I just want to point out your wording on your spectacularly great, worthy of glory and honor in-flight cockpit shot ... you say "A special thanks goes out to H. for arranging this flight!" .... that right there tells me this was something previously arranged, planned and made possible by a connection. This proves the point I've been trying to get at (but haven't done a good job doing). You cannot just walk into an aircraft for your flight, not knowing any of the crew and ask the Captain to get in the cockpit midflight. That part of it does not happen, it just doesn't. But, if you have it arranged by H. or whoever else, yes, it is most definitely possible, even in the United States of America!

So, once again, yes, prearranged, planned, cleared and set up inflight cockpit shots can happen anywhere in the world, you are right about that! The right "connections" are always a plus in life!

It's very easy to get in the cockpit on the groud. Done it with Lufthansa (A340), Swiss, Icelandair, Scandinavian, Ryanair. The Scandinavian captain was the nicest I have met and we had a long chat pre-flight. He said he always likes to be nice to enthusiasts as he is one himself. Towards the end of the chat I ask if there was any possibility of a junpseat. He said he was genuinely sorry that he could not allow it but that was only because the flight ending in London. If it had been to any other conutry apart from the UK he said a jumpseat would have been no problem at all and he even said he would have loved to have me there and chat some more in-flight.

Other posters have been polite, but I haven't? Please tell me where! If giving the person who originally started this some realistic advice about getting into a cockpit and then getting jumped on by you and your other forum buddies isn't polite, I'm not sure anything other than giving him the answer you want would have been. All I'm doing now is having fun with INNflight, he's really funny and really passionate about defending you, JRadier. You guys have a beautiful bond.

Yes, to repeat, definitely not a know it all ... but, it appears you know it all about "riding that jumpseat" all the time when us lowly folks just sit there looking it at, waiting for the day. You must be a pro. I'll again repeat: show me the pics! Oh yea, on an airline other than Welcome Air.
