One of the reasons I am not a CFI .
Huh. Say. How many Gs do you think this -172 is rated for? Why? Oh. No reason…
This is a no BS short story - I was flying with an instrument student from North Myrtle Beach to Raleigh-Durham and back in solid IFR. On the leg back from RDU to CRE, the guy did a complete 360 degree turn enroute (not a roll…LOL…although that would have not surprised me either)…but rather an almost standard rate, 360 degree turn. I just sat and watched, and for some reason, ATC didn’t say a word about it, and I just let him do it. He got through the 360 and was gonna keep turning (apparently he was fixating on altitude and the VSI) and I mentioned he was getting off heading and he locked back in on that (and then, of course, altitude went out the window) and he never knew (and I never told him) that he had done a 360. And this is a corroborated story because my best friend (who was also a CFI) and his wife were in the back-seats of this 172 (we were combining an IFR training flight with picking her up from the RDU airport).
I just turned around and he was grinning from ear to ear (his wife had no idea either…)…

When you ask the student to perform a power on stall exercise and you notice he has a full ball deflection on the turn-slip for the 3rd time:
When the couple you’re flying out some where starts arguing and it just keeps getting worse:
“I forgot my luggage at home, could you wait?”
“What do you mean a headwind is going to slow us down!?”
When your student or passenger arrives early and says they don’t want to rush you:
When an aircraft comes back from its 100 hr:
LOL, I don’t know who they guys are but that’s brilliant!
Oi! GIF overload!
RedLetterMedia, they’re fantastic. Their videos range from funny to gut busting.
The Plinkett reviews are very high on my list of “Videos I wish I could forget about so I could re-watch them with the original effect”.
