Hoping to sit up front on Airlink from CPT to UPT tomorrow - Flight 8645

Any connections? I have a valid CPL.

Flight Deck Visit?

Unread post by love2fly » Tue Jul 16, 2019 7:38 pm

Hello

My son and his friend, (a newly licensed PPL en route to CPL) are flying FALA - FACT this Friday early AM (Kulula MN 451) is there any chance at least the PPL could get a visit to the front end?

Thanks and safe flying...

Im sure showing the Flight attendant the PPL and asking if you could visit the flight deck wont hurt, whats the worst that can happen? they say no :)

Hope it works out for you

[-X Sadly due to 911 cockpit visits no longer allowed. They might allow you to visit the cockpit briefly before takeoff while passengers boarding, before doors are closed. Good luck.

Thought it might be a "no no". If anything can be done I will keep a watchful eye here....His mate was busy with night rating which he just passed so we no longer have to sleep in our bunker!
