Rules On Wearing Pilot Uniform?

Hi there,

Are there any rules against wearing pilot uniform in Spain? (i.e. shirt with eppilettes) I know that in the UK, uniformed police officers are not allowed to be served alcohol. In addition to this, it's against the law to impersonate a police officer.

I do not know whether there's similar rules for people wearing pilot uniform in Spain. Obviously it's a bit different to being a police officer, but I just thought I'd check to make sure. (Don't want to be suspected as a terrorist or anything!)

The reason I'm asking is because I plan on dressing as a pilot for a fancy dress night when I go on holiday to Majorca in July this year.

Cheers

With any job.. no matter what it is.. it's a bad idea to go into a pub with your company uniform on. As for your party.. I don't see any issues at all. It's a party, not like you're trying to get through security and gain access to restricted areas.

Fancy dress party or a costume party? Because if it's a fancy dress party and you come dressed as pilot in uniform when you're not a pilot, it just seems weird.  silly 

But if it's a costume party, I don't see why there would be any trouble. And if it's not a police uniform (though I suppose similar to a very untrained eye) and you have no way of identifying yourself as a police officer, ie. with a badge or an ID, I don't see how it can count as impersonating a police officer anyway. And dressing as a pilot can't be that uncommon anyways...

Have fun!

Well if you dress as a pilot make sure you have a dingy tie with food stains on it. Seriously though, get a better costume, anyone can throw on a pair of blue pants, and a white shirt. If you're going to do it then at least have a bottle of vodka in one hand, and be wearing cracked eye glasses.

I recommend a leather jacket, goggles, and a white silk scarf, instead. Add a coat hanger or wire to the scarf so it sticks straight out behind you, as though it's in the slipstream.

..... an airport,when you are not in anyway a pilot? In the USA or internationally? I tend to doubt there is as long as you don't try to be anything other than a average passenger.
