What Aircraft Would You Most Like To Fly?

Wed Sep 08, 2004 3:41 am

I'm talking realistically here, i.e an aircraft you could fly with your current or attempted licenses/ratings.
My dreamflight for a day would be the Socata TBM-700  Big thumbs up
What would be yours ?

This should possibly be in Polls & Prefs but anyway . . .

B-747 just because. I've flown planes that are almost as big but it is the one. No explanations necessary. It is a 747.

F-104 because, when I was a teenager it was the fastest, most wicked looking thing out there. I saw it perform at a couple of airshows and I thought that would really be cool. I've never even flown anything remotely like it.

B-17 on the airshow circuit. I'm the guy they need. I have three thousand hours of taildragger time and a similar amount of radial engine time. I'm about to retire from the airlines with a million hours and thirty minutes total time and they need me. Only problem is they don't pay pilots and I can't afford to not have a job. Oh well.

Other than that, there is not much out there for me to lust after. I'd as soon fly the F-104 as an F-15 even though the F-15 is, well, you know! I've flown cooler planes than some that are going to show up on this thread as guy's dream shots. I've been very lucky in this business. I guess I would just like more of it.

A triple 777. Its comfortable, its spacious and by jove when you take and land it is the smoothest - even better than an empty Herc!

Unlike most people on here.... Slamclick and Flyf15 excluded...I'd like to fly something that A- can fly really really fast...and B..is extremly agile and adept to some major @$$ kicking.


Heres my list...


gotta start it off with the 747-400 and/or A380 (considering its as cool as its made out to be)....biggest and baddest.

F-15

F-104

B-1

F-18

F-4

Agree this is Polls & Prefs, but for me:

- DA-42 (test run these new diesels)

- Connie

- Global Express

Well.....I dont have much. A PPL with complex endorsment. So, that rules out all mutli aircraft. I do believe I could fly a high preformance aircraft though. Thus, I'd LOVE to fly a Cessna 208. If anyone disagrees, that has flown it or just knows, tell me I am full of shit. I do think I would fair ok in it...

I was very lucky to spend some very good times of my childhood around a squadron of F-104's,my father was the squadron commander back then.The aircraft was long gone out of service but I can still remember its unique engine noise.I sat on the cockpit numerous times dreaming of flying the furious jet but they didnt survive in the service until I grow up to be a pilot.

Last year I sat in the cockpit of an F-16 while I was based at Dalaman,thanks to my house mate who is an ex F-16 driver.I saw that sitting on the rights seat of the 737 for looong hours made me a little out of shape to fit easily in an F-16 let go to fly one.

Other then that aircraft which had great memories in me,I don't have any other specific types that I want to fly.I was very lucky to fly a lot of brand new airplanes during my flight carreer.Most C-172R 's were less than 200 hours on the hub when I was in ERAU,I was also lucky to fly one of the PA-44 Seminoles(N928ER) when it had only 30 hours on the hub.After coming to airline service,I was very lucky to be choosen to fly B737-800 very shortly after entered service in Turkey.They were all fresh out of factory.Again I was previllaged to fly one of the wingletted airplanes in its very first passenger service.

To be realistic I didn't ever dream of flying a 747 because there isnt any in Turkey,neither a 777.So I love what I am flying at the moment if I switch to A-321 I will love it also.I guess I'll love every plane which will help to feed my family.

I would love to fly on a Boeing 747 or a Embraer 145. All I ever seem to fly is on A321, A320, B737 etc on charter flights.

Realistically, a Gulfstream IV. Very nimble and responsive aircraft. Great range and awsome fuel efficiency as well.
