The very back of a 717. Those Beautiful Rolls-Royce engines sound great from start-up to shut down. (You can hardly hear them shut down). So what is your favorite place to sit on what aircraft?

This post may have been discussed before, but not that recently.

Back seat of a J-3. Door and window tacked open, a warm summer breeze in the face. That C65 purring along infront of me, just me and my thoughts as I drift lazily along on a warm summer's evening, sun low on the horizon.

Pulling the power, rolling out on final. High. Slip her on in, hold it, hold it... keep easing back on the stick until... there. Settle gently onto the freshly cut grass. Slowing down, quick waggle of the rudder to lock the tailwheel steering back in. Grass clippings flying up off the mains. Gentle S-turns back to the hanger.

Push her in, lock up, and think to yourself "I can't believe I get PAID for this!"

(well, close to that anyway. What REALLY happened was there WERE no doors or windows, we had replaced the C-65 with an O-290, and it was running a little rough. I was nervously watching the gas gauge, and trying to beat sunset back because my SOB boss HAD to schedule a late evening banner to be flown an hour away from base. Shoehorn myself out, thinking "Mr Piper knew what he was doing, there was a reason these things only came with 2 1/2 hours of gas, not 7!" Grab a cold one and finish my paperwork in the oppresive heat and humidity of the hanger, smearing the ink because of the sweat running out of every pore on my body. Sit back and think, "I can't believe I get PAID to do this!"  Smile )

For me it doesn't matter what aircraft it is as long as it's a window seat.  Big grin

I would have to say the "A" seats on any of the ERJ-135/140/145 or EMB120 aircraft. Its my two preferred seat types, window and aisle in that order, combined into one. On any other type of plane I would just say a window that is not directly over the wing.

I like window seats over wing, but then I realized why it's so bumpy, becuase you are over. On long flights, with more than one class, I ALWAYS prefer sitting up front in Biz or First. For some reason, I had gotten really attached to 5F on all Y 732s. On MetroJet 732s I would constantly book 5F and get it. Once on the same route, I flew the same bird in the same exactly seat. N284AU, MHT-BWI. But I'm not sure whether that is the bird.

My favorite seats (on any aircraft) are the emergency exit seats and bulkhead seats by the window.  Smile

Favorite all-time seat: Seat 1A on a USAirways 737-400 PIT-TPA. I was spoiled!

Favorite regularly scheduled seat: Seat 12E, 13E, 14E, or 15E, roughly located, whatever is right at the leading or trailing edge of the right side of a 737. I like to see both the wing mechanisms and the ground below.

Back of the bus on an empty flight. Because the flight attendants usually hang out at the back and then you can exchange stories and etc.

If I'm in Economy, anything in Row 5 on an NW A319/A320 -- TONS of legroom, moreso than First Class.

I always request a window seat and i prefer to sit just behind the trailing edge of the wing. Usually i always end up over the left wing for some reason. I love seeing the flight controls in action and i like to see the ground below too, especially on approach to land as you get lower and lower and get a greater sensation of speed.
