View Full Version : Do you have the same coordination as a wwii pilot?

While sitting at your desk make clockwise circles with your right foot.

While doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand, if you succeed the first time you have excellent coordination. If not you most likely would not have survived.

Are you sure that's possible? No matter how hard i try i can't do it...

And i can't really see what that would have to do with being able to fly a plane well either, pushing the rudder pedals and moving the stick isn't the same as doing that. Pushing a pedal straight back and moving the stick around seems like it would be a lot easier then that.

It is very possible. Drummers couldn't play and keep time without being able to do so... It is seperation of hand/feet. To be able to do same tasks at different tempo's at same time so to speak..or say moving the yoke and yawing the pedals....Well heck I don't know... lol

It's not that hard to do, just start your "6" with the circle and draw clock wise to the top of the "6". /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I can do it no problem. No cheating here either - draw the 6 counter-clockwise like it should be drawn.
Guess I would've made a good WWII pilot. Too bad I ain't as good in FB /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

My estimation is that about 90% of air worthiness screening tests make no sense. But somehow they have to get the numbers low for there are only limited slots.

I painted the 6 pretty easy, but I fell down from my chair. How shall I interpretate this? Great coordination + poor balance = death on the parachute?

Rough is not good enough http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. Otherwise, "no problemo" here either. With the third try it was even smooth http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. Still it's worth crap.
I won't buy the value of those estimations only because some psycho-jerk who has never sit in an airplane himself has written down that some day. Actually, there are even vast differences in hard medical requirements between countries: The international standard meanwhile allows for ppl get granted air-worthiness while having a red/green weakness. However, the different countries can adjust it to some extend (only in the "harder" direction). That is why in the US you could become an airline pilot with that weakness, but not in Germany for example. Even though it has been proven nonsense. Also dioptrin values are interesting: In the Lufthansa, about 2 years ago, you were not allowed to have more than -1 dioptrin. Now you are allowed to have -3 dioptrin. How come ppl can suddenly fly airliners with 3 times worse vision, while it was impossible 2 years ago? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. Or, even more intersting: The German Luftwaffe has no problem with accepting ppl into fighter jets who had a "refractive eye surgery" (laser surgery to eliminate short-sightness in case the value was too high - above -0,75 dioptrin for the Luftwaffe). However, in the Lufthansa, there is no way they would accept you with that medical history.
How much value do those figures have when they change every other year and from service to service?

when I fly I'm usually tipsy, so I guess, have the same co ordination as a pilot who has been out all night and needs some O2 to get a clear head /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I doubt this has anything to do with being a WW2 pilot. What they needed more than anything is big balls.
