How to Fly Inside the Cockpit? My Best Flight in the Cockpit

I was invited by JSX for a re-positioning flight from Las Vegas to Orange County/John Wayne Airport. During this flight, I revealed how do I access to the cockpit. There are a few ways to get access to the cockpit. I also show you how I mount a insta360 camera in the cockpit to capture the best angles.

Besides flying the JSX Embraer 145 in the video, I also shared some of my most exciting cockpit flying actions in the world. Enjoy them!

This includes:

- flying from Kathmandu, Nepal to Paro, Bhutan. World's Most Dangerous Approach

- flying over thunderstorms on Air Mauritius A350 in Africa

- flying the An-22, the world's biggest turboprop flight

- Farewell flight on Hi Fly A380.

- Farewell flight on EL AL B747-400 by drawing a plane in the sky

    Hi Sam! Great video! My best cockpit moment was March 2000 when I flew LHR-IAD on a 747 and I was allowed into the cockpit for about 90 minutes, was just sat on the jump seat talking to the pilots. Turned out one had just moved to my home town so I was telling him what places he should see and eat in! Was amazing experience! 😁

    hey sam this happened 3 days ago : A ethopian airlines Boeing 777-360ER converted cargo plane operated by Ethiopian Airlines skidded off the taxiway after landing at Lagos-Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS), in Nigeria. The aircraft, registered ET-ASL, had just operated cargo flight ET3905 from Addis Ababa-Bole Airport (ADD) in Ethiopia. As it was taxiing to the apron, the plane skidded off the taxiway and its left-hand main landing gear sunk in the mud.

Then of course, I worked for Northwest Airlines for 12 years and was jumps-eats every month....:). I wish 911 never ever happened.

Seated on the upper deck business class and the Captain invited me to the cockpit on arrival into LHR. Spent a fair bit of time on the jumpseat conversing with the pilots with regards to the 747-400. First cockpit visit was pre-911, on board Royal Brunei B767-300 flight from SIN to LHR via DXB. Recall the visit was on the DXB-LHR sector and did have the opportunity to witness the flight operations live of the B767-300.
