Overcorrecting your own overcorrection is cool though 😛 Adds +30% drama to the video.

I always wondered why some YouTube pilots fly like a rally driver drives!

Call me Bob or Rob, I don't mind, but I prefer Rob.

I like to trick airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool in my back yard by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio.

Finally. The truth is out 😄 this video was hilarious.

Oh and the second important boasting is, always mention a dozen times how "simulators are absolutely different and have NOTHING to do with real flying, NOTHING, flying is so difficult no normal human can do this, and one does not get the slightest knowledge about airplanes, airplane systems and navigation because a simulator is NOTHING like real life, flying in real life is so difficult only an absolute god turned human can fly an aeroplane, don´t think if you can fly a Cessna in a simulator you know anything about a real Cessna 152 (or Airbus, or whatever) because only a god with the super-slow-motion superhuman reflexes of a house fly can control a mighty aeroplane you tiny puny houmaans with your simulators are only playing pilot-man but in reality you know nothing and can nothing because in real-life only a GOD can control an aircraft, you are nothing you know nothing you are literally worthless, don´t ever think you could control such a mighty machine because a simulator has nothing to do with real life, absolute nothing, a Cessna or an Airbus is so difficult to fly you sit there completely wet of sweat working on these controls with superhuman reflexes don´t you ever think just because you have a simulator you know anything about airplanes, only a god-tier human can control these machines after decades of experience, decades..."

(a god, oh and of course every 14year old American sitting the first time ever in a Cessna and landing it smooth and perfect on their first flight...) 😁

He fails to mention that aircraft behavior in the sim and joystick input are not real, so there's a tendency to overcontrol.

Cool.  Now try your smooth, slow, steady corrections with a gusting crosswind. 🤦‍♂️

I see he has offended a resident YouTube pilot... 

I have flown a lot in gusty crosswind conditions, and never have I been moving the yoke around like I see some Youtube/social media pilots (real and otherwise) do in their videos. You may need an occasional quick and strong reaction to the wind but afterwards it is slow and steady again.

I enjoy some of the GA pilot videos which go over the operation of their aircraft.

However those airline pilots who like to offer up their opinions on all things aviation on YouTube are often referenced in the industry by a hand gesture, which I can’t find a matching emoji for.

There are some good ones though who certainly have my respect , but there’s an awful lot of self appointed experts out there.

edit to add , I’ve just watched the above video which made me laugh and I must point out  wasn’t referring to this particular gentleman in my comments, he seems a good guy.

I always thought blancolirio was one of the stand outs. Learned a ton from his videos.
