UPS Fight Gripe Sheet........LOL.

Remember--it takes a college degree to fly a plane,
But only a high school diploma to fix one.
Reassuring for those of you who fly routinely for
Your jobs.

After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form,
Called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about
Problems with the aircraft.
The mechanics correct the problems, document their
Repairs on the form, and then the pilots review the
Gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a
sense
Of humor. Here are some actual complaints submitted by
The UPS pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions
Recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.

By the way, UPS is the only major airline that has
Never, ever, had an accident.


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

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

P: Something loose in cockpit
S: Something tightened in cockpit

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

P: Auto pilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200
Feet per minute descent
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

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

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

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

P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right.

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

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

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

P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: 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.
S: Took hammer away from midget..

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
