Came across this video of a pilot pretending to faint as he is flying friends.

Idiot.

What a horrible, mean, awful thing to do to his friend.

That being said, I'm crying and cannot stop laughing.



Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor?

It's funny but when you really think about it, it's really ridiculous on the pilot's part.

Same here. I don't think I've ever heard someone scream like that.

By the way, what kind of plane is that? Piper Cub?

Think so but we may be wrong.

If it's a cub, then they're only two, and the one screaming is the one filming. Then I think this is fake.

Yep, the screaming guy is obviously involved in this "prank".

Idiot.

I recommend you purchase a sense of humor.  Yeah sure


But that was epic   

I've done similar evil pranks, but only to very close friends, who were also pilots. So I see no harm done.

The caption says:

"So there's 3 people on this plane, a pilot, a cameraman and a friend who's about to get pranked. Let's see how it works out."

Clearly implying the cameraman and friend are the same person

Kinda reminds me of the times you're driving on the highway and everyone falls asleep in the van. Start yelling, swerving back and forth, and honking the horn! Now that was funny 


Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)

I was trying to read the reg on the dash but no joy - noticed that the original poster seems to be from Brazil.

I'm not sure what you mean. Whatever plane or ultralight this is, it very much looks like a tandem config'. I think tandem 3 seaters exist, but that doesn't appear to be the case here.

Me too. It's one of those things that aren't actually funny, but you just can't stop laughing at it...

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Since whoever originally shot this video is not the one who uploaded it, the description of there being three people on the plane is irrelevant. I'm pretty sure it's a Piper PA-12 Super Cruiser anyway, which does have two seats in the rear.

And it sounded like real angst to me.

That is not funny. That is not what you should do when taking someone for an airplane ride in a GA aircraft. Most people are somewhat concerned about being on board a small airplane and acting like that does not help in anyway possible.

If that was a student of mine that I had taught to fly I would be extremely disappointed in his actions.

Yes it is funny.

Funny doesn't make it right whether it was faked with the camera man in cahoots or not. A real paniced passenger can be a supreme risk if this wasn't faked. If he had leaned forward and grabbed the stick the aircraft could have gone into an unrecoverable stall.

If the pilot has that lack of judgement as to what he should or should not do, I would not want to be on any aircraft with him. I wonder if buried in the regs is something about those types of jokes. I have been in GA aircraft when the pilot has taken the plane into manoevers but always within prescribed airspace and with warning to ATC. The one pilot was with the Canadian Air Force and was very skilled. Beats any amusement park ride.

This would be funny in a movie or in a TV show, but in real life it is totally unacceptable. That crap never happens when I am up in an airplane. Flying an airplane is a serious matter and joking should play no role in it. A panicked passenger is totally unpredictable and can be very, very dangerous, especially in a general aviation aircraft with nothing keeping him/her away from the controls. If this was real, the pilot is a moron. If this is fake, I still don't agree with it.

I'm crying so much I'm laughing.... And yeah, that was kind of mean ... But nevertheless hillarious...

This being said, the screamer is also in on the joke... I find it hard to believe that someone about to meet his God would have kept the camera so steady... Notice that the camera is held by the sreamer...  

Still hillarious

Something tells me two things. First, the screamer had to have been in on it. Second, The pilot most likely never closed his eyes and retained control, in fact pushing the nose into a slight nose down attitude. Just my .02
