A gripe sheet...

A gripe sheet. Supposedly true “gripes by pilots and the responses by ground crew”. If they are true – they show the ground crew has a really good sense of humor. My top favorite on that page (it was really hard to choose):

Problem logged: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
Solution described: That's what they're there for.


I liked that most of all because it is somewhat similar to some answers I’ve given in the past myself. “It is supposed to do that”.

It was either that one or the “cannot reproduce on ground” answer.

I've seen this for years now... I'm a licensed pilot. I get a good laugh every time I see it.

This list is part of a much larger list that has been going around for a while, and which I've seen attributed to half a dozen different airlines.

Regrettably my favourite line is missing from this list:
P: Autolanding is rather rough.
S: Autolanding not installed on this plane.

Robert, it's there (third one down) just worded a little different.

My favorite (hard to choose, there are so many):

P: Something loose in cockpit
S: Something tightened in cockpit

That mechanic must have kids. ;-D

word: noxpj
Something your kid has worn at night for two weeks straight?
