## Krypton factor

Whats with this bunch, land an airyplane its so simple, what a bunch of wallies,
now a cross wind landing is different, and more exciting, the most difficult
part of aviation i found was knowing where the heck i was.

I was always sitting down and facing front, myslef...How about you Danger?

Anoxia would have been my guess.

As Fred indicated, usually the pilot's seat or cockpit is the place to be while flying a plane.

Usually in aviation, one is in a plane or at least an airport, the place where there are lots of planes.

Krypton, one of the noble gases, is usually not associated with aviation.

Usually. One does occassionally have to let George do the flying long enough to enroll in the mile-high club.

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. My worst challenge was putting a 172 down on target in a 40 knot 35º cross-wind. Even that's not hard as long as you remember to kick out of the crab before you plant the nose gear.

I believe the Krypton Factor is some type of game show in the UK.

Oh, well... it all makes absolutely no sense at all then.

edit: Hey, Fred! I just thought of something. You round-wing weirdies don't have Georges, do you? Is there some kind of 'auto-hover' mode to let you into the club, or do you just hope that you don't kick something at an inopportune moment?

On the TV show very talented brainy people can not land the thing, im
sure the decent rate is set for them, all they have to do is keep it
straight and on the glide path, yet hardly any can do it.

There's altitude and heading hold, but not quite the same as what you guys use. I think the only place I have ever seen an autohover type of gadget was on Airwolf. You see, we have to stay awake and actually fly the machine...

I guess there are a lot of things that I wouldn't want kicked at all, let alone at an inappropriate time!
