I don't think it is a good idea to discuss how you got into a restricted area in a public fora! Unwanted persons might read it!

Yeah I agree, there is always some one who will spoil it  Big grin Real lucky guys though, maybe the laws in whichever country are not as strict, or maybe they are the pilots for the airline who chose to fly jumpseat?????

Some Air France captains apparently allow flight deck visits, according to earlier threads about such visits. Just ask and you *may* get!

It's easy. The person taking the picture is an airline employee and is jumpseat authorized. His profile states 'Airline Employee'.

Wrong. It is correct that I am working for an airline but not for Air France. I am working for a German airline but since our minister of the interior has become paranoid last November, I am unfortunately not jumpseat authorized anymore.

Antoine and a few other people made this fantastic flight possible, I hope you understand that we can not provide more details.

Merci beaucoup to all people who made this possible!

Its no great secret, and you're not going to mees it up for everybody. Here's Gemini's Jump Seat Policy:

ACM (Jumpseat) Policy and Procedures


We are pleased to welcome you aboard our DC-10 and MD-11 aircraft. We offer the following guidelines to assist you in complying with our Jumpseat Policy and Procedures.

FAR 121.547 covers requirements for admission to the flight deck;

Sterile cockpit procedures apply anytime the aircraft is below 10,000 feet and anytime the Captain requires;

The Captain has final authority on Jump Seat availability as well as priority;

Your Jump Seat opportunity on Gemini Air Cargo aircraft includes Domestic and International Flights;

Each Jump Seat rider must observe strict professional conduct, be free from the influence of alcohol, and be in proper business attire or airline uniform;

Proper company identification must be displayed at all times;

Jump Seat availability is on a space available basis, and can be reserved within 48 hours of departure;

On International flights, eligible persons desiring the Jump Seat must have current passport and necessary visa, in addition to applicable immunization records. To allow sufficient time for processing and coordination, you should report approximately ninety (90) minutes prior to flight departure;
