My funniest moment, wasn't on vatsim but ill share it with yall anyway, well it here it goes, i was doing my pilot training at YMMB and i taxxied, and when i was at the hold short point, i went,Moorabbin Tower, and i was trying to get Oscar Lima Sierra outta my mouth,but instead i said otca,lima,sierra, i said it 3 times!,and i'm like, oh jesus, and the ATC controller who took my call probably wet his pants at the end of my transmission...

There's a Highwing Twin thing that floats around Bankstown a fair bit with the Callsign VH-WYY.

Me on MSP_CTR: "Mooney 775F, Rochester (KRST) at your 12 o'clock, and 13 miles, report it in sight." N775F: "75F has the field, requesting touch and go" Me: "Mooney 75F, Rochester winds calm, runway

One of the funniest moments (for the pilots -.- ) was when I was on FLL tower this week at about midnight or so. The ATIS was updating every other minute, driving me nuts. So I go to record the ATIS, not knowing my PTT is stuck. Fortunately, its only a friend from ZMA listening in while flying

 

 

So...for about 2 minutes straight....

 

"Fort Lauderdal...Lauter...oh **** *grumbles*

Fort Luaderda..Lauderd...damnit....

Fort Lauderdale information Alpha...err...Bravo...er.."

 

That's why I type out my ATIS first. Spares me soap in the mouth and 5 minutes

 

 

My all time favorites are from KS though. Too lazy to dig them out.

lol, sounds like something I would do, too!

 

I think the funniest things I've done on vatsim are nowhere near as funny as your, but here're mine. these took place yesterday, the second one, on my ILS exploration (learning )

 

1. I was John F. Kennedy, had everything going well up to getting airborne. My plane wouldn't pull up to above the horizon line. I take a look around my cockpit and the only thing I see are my ILS settings still on, but autopilot no engaged so that it takes over. keep trying to pull up to no avail, and in doing so, freaked my computer out to the point that my sim starts to reduce visibility to increase the frame-rate. So I decide to just let my plane fall into the sea, with about 7 controllers, online, two controlling JFK at the time. I told the departure controller that I had switched over to that my comp decided that my plane needed to be sacrificed and if I can restart my FP.

 

2. ILS went well for me on the first time for runway 22L at JFK. I land decide to do another flight, JFK to ISP, and then back to JFK. I was on my way back to the ILS start, roughly 12NM from runway 22L. I lineup and engage my ILS, when right in the middle of it, I notice I'm going to be way off when I touch down, about 2NM from the start of the runway. I opened another window to watch a quick replay of my lining up and see I'm only at 1,500ft, when 2000ft, works best from that point. I managed to disengage the ILS 3/4 of the way to the runway, but stilled missed by a good 500ft.

Seth, those two are not funny, they are just a proof of bad airmanship. Fly your aircraft without the autopilot, and only once you can do that, start adding automatic flight. Flying is not just typing the controller's instruction into the FMC and watching as it goes.

 

Some time ago in Zurich. Arrival was just about to fall asleep due to a lack of traffic, I didn't have anything to do on Final either. We looked up from where the next aircraft would come and decided what instructions he would get. Then we divided them into logical groups and when the pilot came onto his frequency, Arrival and myself would give the instructions on a turn by turn-basis.

 

BHP123, Zurich Arrival, identified... ... information alpha is current ... ... vectors ILS 14 ... ... tun left heading 320 ... ... descend 6'000ft, QNH1013.

 

Pilot's readback: Did not copy, please say again. Some fool talked in between all the time.

I said I'm still learning. I've only attempted three ILS landings, the rest are all manual, and I don't use autopilot unless it's a 3 hour flight, and even then I stare at the screen the whole way, and disengage the autopilot to change altitude.

Really, unless you're flying heavy metal, the ILS should be flown manually.

XPRT25: We'd like to do some practice approaches at LAS before continuing to Nellis, will you be able to accomidate?

APP: We can accomidate those approaches, what did approach are you requesting?

XPRT: We'd like the ILS25R approach, then the RNAV19L, and the VOR-DME approach if theres time.

APP:Rgr, would you like fries with that?

XPRT:huh?

LAS: Nvm...Fly heading 100 vectors for the final approach course.

XPRT: 100, and actually we'd like a Shake with that approach.

*On the landline with TWR*

APP:XPRT25, rqst I5R,R9L,VOAc25L, and get working on that Shake would ya!

TWR: Huh?

*upon returning to LSV*

APP: XPRT25, exit the runway when able, taxi to parking, when you reach the stand theres gunna be a guy name Mike in a yellow coat, he's got your drink.

XPRT:ROFL

[22:48:21] MIA_GND: FDX000, cleareld LAX via WINCO1, WINCO, then as filed. Maintain 5000 expect FL260 one zero minutes after departure. Departure with center squawk 1301

 

[22:49:30] FDX000: rgr c/m 5000 expect fl260, sqwk 1

 

[22:49:33] FDX0: 301

 

[22:49:45] MIA_GND: FDX000, readback correct. Call for taxi, p and s approved

 

[22:49:58] FDX000: rdy to taxi to runway

 

[22:53:51] MIA_GND: FDX000 taxi 8r via November Mike, call holding short if I don't call first.

 

[22:54:24] FDX000: rgr

 

[22:58:27] FDX000: permmsion to go on 8R

 

[22:59:01] MIA_GND: Oh jeez.....FDX000, you're already on it. Contact center 132.250, ground is stepping away for a butt rippin' by center, cya.

 

[22:59:32] FDX000: cya

 

That was a few days ago when I was controlling at Miami. Its amazing how often pilots taxi across 8r, go to 8l, and then say they're holding short of 8r

Some pilots are intimidated by complex IFR clearences. But this is the strangest reaction I've ever had.

 

LAX_1_TWR: MSP000, cleared to KLAS, via runway heading , radar vectors LAX040R.KELSE.DAG.CLARR.LAS direct, maintain 5000, expect 12000 five minutes after departure, departure frequency 124.5, squawk 1003

 

MSP000: i have no friends

 

MSP000: brb

 

XXX_TWR: MSP000, neither do I, thats why Im always on vatsim

I was flying out of SFO on the night of the FNO, now I live in the UK so it was like 1am Local time, and I was shattered...but continued anyway. I was, whilst talking to ATC, getting instructions from the Live Dispatch Center on Teamspeak.

 

After I departed and contacted departure, I couldn't hear a word of what he was saying, so I shouted "Dispatch, shut up for a second", now of course, being as tired as I was, I hit the wrong CTRL button, after I realised I said to myself..."ah [Mod - lovely stuff]", followed by a swift "FUS754, repeat last message" from DEP.

Was flying out of LAX and heard a pilot call, it went kind've like this.

The aircraft, lets call him 123 calls in.

"123, where's your location?"

"LAX centre, my location is... hold up"

"My location is (a bunch of random letters?)"

"Rgr, that is not in my airspace, change to advisory, good day"

"I read that back, reading you loud and clear"

"123, that isn't in my airspace, change to advisory, bye"

"uh... what's advisory?"

"122.8"

"Rgr"

Comes back later...

"Centre, where all the controllers at?"

My moment was more sad then scary. I remember I was on approach at LAX when I was new, I knew nothing about planes hahaha. This was around February 2016 or so. (or 2017 I forget) But LAX_04_CTR (Think his name was Sheyrar) was: BLAHBLAH141 do you have the ILS? Me: What is an ILS? LAX_04_CTR: BLAHBLAH141 Do not come back to this network (something along those lines) until you know how to use your plane. Me: "Having tears stream down my eyes whilst slightly sobbing: Um, ok, sorry" I watched videos on how to ILS for 3 hours that evening. and to this day I STILL do not know how to use an ILS

Perhaps consider joining an ATO to instruct you on how to learn how to conduct different instrument approaches. A lot of times, new pilots rush into a fast, heavy commercial jet without much basic knowledge. When it comes time to handle basic functions of their aircraft, they fail to perform due to their overexcitement and lack of knowledge.

I suggest taking a look at VATSTAR. They have many instructors who can help you work towards expanding your knowledge on VATSIM and obtain pilot ratings.
