The propeller is just a big fan
in the front of the plane
to keep the pilot cool.
Make it stop;
then watch the pilot break out into a sweat.
The Rules of Flight Club
Welcome to Flight Club.
> The first rule of Flight Club is: you do talk about Flight Club.
> The second rule of Flight Club is: you DO talk about Flight Club.
> Third rule of Flight Club: if someone yells abort, aircraft
overruns the runway end, engine eats itself, you’ll have to do the flight over.
> Fourth rule: only one pilot to a flight.
> Fifth rule: one flight at a time, fellas.
> Sixth rule: the flights are bare knuckle. No shirts, no shoes, no problem.
> Seventh rule: flights will go on as long as they have to.. or until you run out of gas… hit a mountain… ice up… throw a jug and get oil all over the windscreen… hit a California Condor...
> And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Flight Club, you have to fly.
Get on the Discord channel. We have a very lively and raucous community and that’s the core of HBRC.
Feel free to fly the aircraft where you want, but please try to return them to or near their home airfield when you're done.
Whenever practical, make a reasonable effort to refuel and repair at an HBRC FBO.
When flying HBRC aircraft, fly for HBRC.
When flying for HBRC, fly HBRC aircraft. However, you are free to use your own aircraft. If you REALLY need to rent outside of the group, use EXTREME caution to rent an appropriate aircraft for the intended job(s). HBRC covers ALL expenses(rental costs, booking and FBO fees, add’l crewmembers, fuel, random maintenance, etc.), but also pays the pilots well (60%, BEFORE those deductions). If you incur high fees, you’ll be paid, but the group will lose a LOT of money. Not cool.)
If you have to relocate an aircraft non-rev to a place nearby (within reason), where there are more suitable jobs waiting, submit an expense report and you will be reimbursed. If you can give us some advanced notice, we can create a “Group Assignment” to where you want to go, thereby avoiding the need for reimbursement.
You do not have to wait for the FSE webpage’s "GROUP>ASSIGNMENTS" page to be populated, because it probably won’t be. C’mon, I have a life, too! At least, I think I do. Am I just kidding myself? Is this all there is to it? Am I just… a-hem… anyway... the truth is that we don’t want to block jobs from other FSE players who might want them while the jobs we’ve hoarded for the group go unflown and expire. That said, if you would like some jobs built up for you then just get on the Discord channel and someone will surely be happy to do so. Otherwise, if an HBRC aircraft is available and there are good jobs to be had, go for it!
We’re VERY strict on the following, violation WILL result in immediate termination
NO smoking within 8 hours of flight
NO drinking within 50 feet of the aircraft (unless you're in it already)
After each flight, you’ve gotta take a shot
Flights in excess of 1 hour require hourly shots enroute
If you've never seen the movie "Airplane!", shame on you, and we don't want to hear from you again until you have. Seriously, WTF?!? shame shame shame
