Jake: "Yankee Zulu Alfa, Ready for Takeoff, Runway 25"

Tower: "Yankee Zulu Alfa, cleared for takeoff, left hand circuits"

Jake: Throttle to full, engine checks, plane accelerates

.... plane accelerates

Jake: Applies a bit of rudder to straighten the plane

Jake: Hits brakes accidentially instead of the rudder

Plane: I'm going off the runway now

.... plane hits 55 knots

Instructor: "I have control", grabs stick, rudders hard, and takes off. Looks at me.

Jake: "What was that?"

Instructor: "I dunno, check tires."

Jake: "Tires are fine. I wonder if I hit the brake instead of the rudder."

Instructor: "Yeah, probably. I already have students that I expect to do stupid things like that, you're usually pretty good so I wasn't expecting that."

Jake: "I have big feet."

Instructor: "Yeah, well keep them off the damned brakes when you're taking off."

No kidding. I can fly the 172 just fine, but it's tricky to get in and out of it.

My school has 10 Katana DA-20 planes and 2 Cessna 172s. I can't even fit in the Katana, but the 172 is pretty nice to me.

The brakes are in a stupid location, though!

Hope to get one of these [airliners.net] or these [airliners.net] one day.

Nope. We almost flew the Seminole to Chicago (Palwaukee) for my friend's wedding last weekend, but things fell through and we ended up flying an Airbus 321 instead.... in the back. :-(

If you were learning to drive a semi-tractor there'd be a pun in there about "no jake brake".

Ack! Out, damn-ned irrelevant humor!
