Rules On Wearing Pilot Uniform?

Mon Mar 16, 2009 5:25 pm

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  

- Rich

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.

Silly question but

..... 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.
