Ok, I have not been  totaly honest about my most memorable experiences, I should of added
1) Not securing the fuel cap on the fuel tanks so we leaked feul.
2) Nearly and I mean about inches from clipping wings with a stationary aircraft while attempting to park.
3) Conpleteing my first NavEx and Land away.

Wow, there quite majour mistakes!  The worst thing I have ever done is forgot to pump the brakes, therefore the aircraft moved forward, but not by too much.

I hate parking it!  I've not (yet) had a problem with that, but I manage to clip the wing mirrors of my car when manouvering in tight spaces, so several feet long wings bolted on either side of me it won't be long before I do something!! Embarrassed Confused

Kind regards,

If you keep your nose wheel on the line, your wing trips should be safe.

Depends how big the parking slot is, and how big the aeroplane is you're parking in it.

2005 landing at Colmar (LFGA) as a passenger in a Navajo with only two greens lit up. ATC counted three down so the pilot decided to risk the landing. Scary, but I thought I handled it well, didn't get stressed, no worries, cool and calm. We landed safely and we hired a car and drove into town, super cool, calm and collected.
Ten years later I return to Colmar, by road. Outside the airport there is a 12 metre high replica of the Statue of Liberty. I didn't remember that from my previous visit. I asked how long it had been there? Since 2004, I was told. I might have thought that I was calm and collected, but I somehow manged to blank out a 12 metre high statue.
