During a sports charter flight do the pilots close and lock the cockpit door like a revenue flight or do they leave it open and have fun as if it were a big win like say the super bowl?

I'm pretty sure FAA regulations require the door to be closed and locked if available (ie. B1900 is exempt). Even bizjets

Support the beer and soda can industry, recycle old airplanes!

Yes, locked as normal.

If not: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e.../coventry_warwickshire/7034412.stm

I was flying for USA Jet, which is -121, and does sports charter. All -121 HAVE to have a secure cockpit door, regardless of charter or scheduled. We only have the door open with no PAX on board.


TRY. It's all you have control over, and it's what God wants.

Damn that must suck when there is a big party going on in the back and one pilot cant go threw and have fun with them too but only for a few secs. I know guess both pilots have to stay in the cockpit but at least be able to have the door open and take a good peak at everything going on.

It seems things with sports charters in Europe are way more relaxed. I fly these regularily and the atmosphere is usually totally relaxed.

It is also the best way to hitch a ride in the cockpit, unless one of the star players decides he loves aviation on that day and manages to get to the cockpit first.

Then you have all the camera guys, as shots from the cockpit always make a nice addition to the "trip report" on their TV station. Usually there are also photojournalists (or whatever you call them in the US) that want to catch a frame of a famous player in the cockpit with the pilots. Also makes for a nice spread in the magazine.
