Aircraft Maintenance Humor

  • Posted on: May 27th, 2010

This ‘Air Humor’ was just too funny to not share!

If you think aircraft mechanics have no sense of humour, read this list of snags on an AC plane in Victoria B.C.

The P(ilot) writes down the problems on a form for the M(echanic) to address:

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
M: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
M: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit.
M: Something tightened in cockpit.

P: Dead bugs on windshield.
M: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200-feet-per-minute descent.
M: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
M: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
M: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
M: That’s what friction locks are for.

P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
M: IFF is always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
M: Suspect you’re right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.
M: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny. (I love this one!)
M: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.
M: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics..

P: Mouse in cockpit.
M: Cat installed.

And the best one for last…

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
M: Took hammer away from the midget.

    As a pilot I find this especially funny. When you take your plane in for maintenance you just never know if they read your list. They fix what they find, but don’t always appreciate a pilots point of view.
