Flight Chops: The Highs and Lows of Flying with Passengers

Training doesn’t always cover what it’s like to deal with human distractions.

For this week’s Flight Chops throwback, we’re sharing a particularly funny video from 2014 about “the good, the bad and the barfing” of flying with passengers. As everyone’s favorite weekend warrior pilot Steve Thorne explained, “This video is really just about sharing experiences, both mine and some of my friends, kind of starting the conversation about passenger management as a private pilot.” But the fun part involves him breaking down different “passenger character types.”

The results are expectedly hilarious, and possibly very familiar to most pilots. If anything, we probably all know a Cousin Jen.

As always, check out the latest Flight Chops giveaway, which includes, among other awesome things, a subscription to Flying.
