Do any of you have an aviation fantasy? I have one and it may sound crazy but i thought i would share if anyway.

I was thinking (and i honestly dont know how i would react if this situation was reality) what if both of the pilots flying (a commercial jet) were to pass out or become unable to fly the plane for what ever reason and i was the only one on board that even knew the slightest about flying ( i am a student pilot). I thought, "how great it would be to have the control of an airliner and land the thing safely." I kinda wish for it to happen to me some day. I dont know why i have this crazy though but i have it everytime i fly.

Anyway, that is mine...a little far fetched, i know.

I'd be interested in hearing other dreams or fantasies...RELATED TO AVIATION ONLY. Keep it clean, or at least PG-13.

You're not alone Ken -- I don't think there's a student/private pilot in the world who doesn't dream about that happening.

LOL @ "RELATED TO AVIATION ONLY. Keep it clean, or at least PG-13"...... I have seen posts on this forum where people say a 777 gives them a boner, kinda sickening.... My fantasy would be to fly IN (i am 15, dont know how to control an airplane, just like flying in them) all the widebodies currently in use by airlines in an around the world trip stopping at ATL, LHR, CDG, DXB, SIN, HKG, NRT, SYD and LAX.

My fantasy is to take the longest flight in the world: Chicago-Hong Kong on United in First or Business Class. 16 hours in a comfortable seat with awesome food and entertainment, sounds good to me.

My fantasy is that one of those day that I am in the airport taking photos someone call me to fly a L-1011..
 
I like the MEL fantasy too.

Mine is the opposite of MEL's. I'd like to board a widebody and take off and land every 20 minutes or so for about 20 hours. That's the thrill of flying for me.

I once had the opportunity to fly an A320 training simulator, and ever since have wanted to fly the real thing. Just one problem, I am not a pilot!!!!

B727-200.

Hi there

Mate, you arent the only student pilot out there who's had that fantasy, I think about it every time I go somewhere on a flight.

Its one of those things where you wish I would happen but you also wish it doesnt happen. It would be great to be in the position where your the only person on the plane who can fly it in the event of both pilots being incapacitated but I wouldnt want to have to go through something like that as just a passenger.

Regards

Greg

Mine is to be in a plane with terrorists planning to hijack it. And as soon as they get up from their seats I disarm one of them (who was sitting right next to me, so I guess I figured out his plans ) and get rid of the other one. And then that Airline gives free tickets for life to me and to my family. WOW that would be awesome

I am very lucky to have reached many of my fantasies. But the one I wish for most a this point I'm affraid is out of reach; That would be to fly with the US Air Froce Thunderbirds, or US Navy Blue Angels. WOW....

I thought I was the only warped one that had that fantasy*L* They land damm quick compared to what I have flown though. I'd also like have a job where I lived out of a suitcase and stayed in hotels all over the world, flying either first class or in the jump seat. I spose either a pilot or FA job would offer that. Plus I wanna buy an about to be scrapped 747 and have the cockpit as my office, the upper deck as my living quarters and the lower deck as a car park, workshop and party area.

UAL757:

I hear you, man. Although I'm happy career-wise, alot of times I wish I could drop it all and start taking flying lessons and then wind up flying the big iron for a major. But alas, I have a family to support, so it's not going to happen.

Hey, I live in NJ - maybe we could split a Big Game ticket?

My fantasy is to re-open Mac Donnel Douglas. I would be build a new factory in Shannon in Ireland (It would help the local economy) and start producing the MD11X.
Well I can dream can't I?

Well, if you worked for United you could test-fly the widebodies when they come out of the maintenance hanger and do touch and go's in the pattern at OAK on 29 in a 747...

it's an interesting sight...

My dream would to be flying a Virgin Atlantic plane from JFK to LHR and when the FA asked me if he/she could get me anything, I would reply "An upper class sleep suit, the Kids meal (I'm a picky eater when it comes to airline food), and the Orange Kit (the bag you get on the seat- the last color I need for my collection) and of course, I would recieve all three items, land into Heathrow, pick up a giant Kinder Egg (I love those things- can't get them in the States!) and fly back just in First Class.

1. Similar with flywithken. I kinda want it to happen but not want it to happen. Hire a Cessna Skyplane 182 and a pilot. pilot collapses and I have to fly it. I've checked out their site and the cockpit layout is SO similar to the Microsoft's flight sim.
2. Fly on a 777!!!!! What 777 flights are there from Hong Kong except the Emirates' Bangkok Dubai route?

Nap of the earth flying for sure, in something you strap on, like an F-16. I did it in a Twin Huey, and it was FAN-TAS-TIC!!!! - so multiplying that experince by about six fold...I wouldn't be able to explain!! If it was something big, probably like the suggestion above, just touch and goes for a couple of hours(unless,like the other, it was a BONE...:D)
