I will be flying Southwest Airlines this summer and hoping to see the cockpit during flight. Maybe even stay and watch the landing. Will they let you? (even when you tell them you want to be a pilot and when you name lots of gauges)

You aren't allowed in the cockpit while in flight in the US.

You MAY be able to on the ground, but I doupt it (20 minute turn arounds). Enjoy your flight!

They are right, the cockpit door will remain closed during flight and visitors are not permitted.

Here is my suggestion...when you get on, if you are on a 737-200 or a 737-300...head for the back lounge area (rear facing seats in the aft cabin on left hand side).

Sit in the rearfacing window seat and during rotation...watch how close the ground seems to come to smacking you when he yanks it off the ground.

You will undoubtedly be the last one off the plane, sitting back there...so if you wanted to get a peek or talk to the Captain...that is usually about the best time. As you deplane. Unless there is a crew change.

Enjoy your flight!
