    Gripe Sheet

    After every flight, pilots fill out a form called a gripe sheet, which conveys to the mechanics porblems encountered with the aircraft during the flight that needs repair or correction. The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken, and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight.

    Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems as submitted by Qantas pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers.

    By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never had an accident.

    (P=The problem logged by the pilot)
    (S=The solution and action taken by the engineers)

    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 is cockpit
    S: Something tightened in cockpit

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

    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 they're there for

    P: Suspected crack in windshield
    S: Suspect your right

    P: Aircraft handles funny
    S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

    Sparring speed is a matter of simple physics:
    The height of your flight is inversely proportionate to the mass of your ass.
