Poll: The Mile High Club

I saw this article about a commercial pilot offering a flight that really does go all the way and wondered how many on the forum qualified for membership.

(Not me... but I was at the controls when a couple joined up. )

Hey, real mile-high club members use autopilot or nothing at all!

And, no, I'm not a member of the submariner clubs either. But that commercial pilot's inspiration gives me a great idea for Atlantis Submarine's new "After Dark" program...

There are controls for that?

And I thought the rock-em sock-em robots were fun.

No, it was a taxpayer-owned flight 'service'.

... and you were the only one actually wearing the full U.S. Air Force uniform at the time, right?

No, I didn't ask, and they don't have to tell...

Yep, the official policy is "Don't ask, don't tell." Nobody said "Don't look."

Re: Poll: The Mile High Club

There is something about the noise and vibration and wind in the CH47 Chinooks I used to fly that makes most ladies think about things other than love. I do have a few friends who knew "highly motivated" women and did get their mile high wings in Chinooks.
