Title: Pilots VS. Maintenance
Post by: Roll Tide on Apr 05, 2006, 01:02
(I am betting Southwest is the certain airline.....)

    After every flight, pilots from a certain airline 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 pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.

     Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by the pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by mechanics.


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.

P:  Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.

S:  Evidence removed.
