What is with the "Pogo Stick?"

Recommended Posts

I have heard PMDG and a number or forum users mention the "pogo stick" that can be found in the cargo holds of some of PMDG's aircraft.  

What on Earth is it meant to mean? :laugh:  Is it some sort of inside joke or something?  I'd Love to know what it means.

the story i heard was that back in the day the nose gear strut on an old project was similar looking to a Pogo stick, the joke stuck and so pmdg has included a Pogo stick in every aircraft. recently they have included a Segway as well.

I feel I am getting old the Pogo stick becomes a history that needs explanation to newer generations :(

The pogo stick is for hitting your co-pilot with when he suggests going around whilst the VAS warning is dinging away. :laugh:

Years ago a customer said they'd buy a pogo stick if PMDG made it, or made some comment about all the bells and whistles being so detailed that all was missing was a pogo stick.  I vaguely remember those threads.

You know your really getting old if you remember the funniest and most famous "Patch" thread by Ferd_Berful post on Avsim.

By the weight who is the woodpigeon? By the same token as Pigme or Ponsky? For that I say, where is the patch for pogo stick.
