I tried Googling it, but you had me curious at 3 minutes 20. Type rating cards / papers, what do they look like? Any chance you can show it to us and blob out sensitive information? Kind of interesting to see what it looks like compared to the very well known drivers license :D

@Doktor McNasty: It's NOT a prank: please google Thomas Salme. By contrast, Andreas Lubitz had a perfectly valid licence! Who would you have preferred to fly with?

Thanx for the insight. I was always curious to know what does a pilot carry in their bag.

How could there possibly be 231 thumbs down on such a genuine video? Must be some life-hating, miserable trolls out there, WTF!

THIS WAS SUPER. I always thought these were maps, weather, blah blah blah and find out. It's just a suitcase of personal items. THANKS MENTOUR :-)
Érico Schmitt (3 months ago)
Do you carry any passtime item if you have spare time between flights? Such as an e-reader or whatever. Or can you just use that ipad to use the internet or install games on it if you wish?

All good stuff, I like it. Not going to be a pilot, I'm a retired aerospace design engineer.

Jeff Strange (8 months ago)
Hahahahaha....the caption blew my mind ! It's a bag you put the pilot in after the plane crashes ! ;-} I've often wondered how pilots just can't go flying and landing anywhere they want, obviously you'd have to have a shopping cart of visas in order to land ? I think every logbook should be on the Tablet and remotely updated every five minutes it's used. This way, no lost information....just a thought.

"on top of this i also have my flashlight, wich is... ah... not working" xD
325iaddict (2 months ago)
Indeed. This looks like an el-cheapo flashlight to me. In my opinion, there's just ONE aviation flashlight out there: the good old Surefire A2 Aviator. YES, the one with the high-pressure Xenon bulb! That light is of MUCH better quality than ANY LED flashlight is able to deliver! And this bulb is REGULATED so you'll have constant output through thre entire life of the batteries (2 pieces CR123A). This is normally a feature only found on LED flashlights, but Surefire did it with this incandescent light - try one and you'll be hooked!

It's fun and informative to watch your videos... You have such a depth in science and math, but you seem like such a nice person... I recently had to change planes in Singapore and when I went through security I noticed the Singapore Airline employees, even though the red light would flash and they would get a quick hand wand and the red light would come on again, would be allowed to continue...Being from the U.S.A. I was expecting to remove my shoes but everyone in front were keeping them on so I did too and no one said a word... Do employees have a different level of scrutiny or is it just the different airports in different countries have their own procedures???? Thanks for the videos...

What about some general stuff like a kindle, your own tablet, condoms or a book?

Hi, one important thing to mention: in modern glass cockpit aircrafts you should not use polarized glasses, for the simple reason that you would have a hard time seeing the MFDs and such.

Americans have a gun in the cockpit. At least that's what one politician said.

No offline navigation tools? What if you get stranded at sea or in a jungle? I thought he would have at least a sextant or something.

I bet the LCD screens are polarized so glasses can be a problem

The audio of this video is clipping slightly. I'd recommend being a little more conservative with your volume setting, but you may already have gotten into the habit of doing so.

I believe the sunglasses must NOT be polarized. If I remember correctly.

What are the flashlights you use? I already have a headlamp for night flying, but am looking for a "real" flashlight for walk-arounds like you mentionned in the video.

"You typically carry these things with your right or left arms." ...do pilots typically have more than just a right and left arm?

I was at Chicago O’ Hare about 10 years ago. They had to lockdown the baggage area because an unattended bag was making a weird noise. It turned out to be a giant vibrator that got switched on lol, it was pretty hilarious actually

Thanks for the great podcast, I absolutely love watching your videos! I've got some questions, I hope they have not been answered yet. You mentioned you drink coffee, so do you make it before the flight in an airport or being on board? And if you make the coffee on board which water do you use? Is it the same water all the passengers are being served with or is it from some separate special water tank? The reason I'm asking that is because there're some stories on the internet suggesting that you should never drink the water served by the cabin crew because the water tanks are never being cleaned. Thanks again for the interesting videos!

Do pilots who do long auyls with layover before return legs have bigger bags? Obviously, they want clothes for between flighst and new shirt for the return leg?

Miroslav Pavlov (1 year ago)
I loved the video! Makes 98% of reasonable sense to have any of the items in it. I'm still not a pilot but I sure want to be one(since as long as I am self aware) so this was quite the good learning experience. In my day to day backpack that I always carry with me I actually do have most of what you showed for the very same reasons you explained - common sense is to have always a good pair of backup glasses(in my case sun glasses, I never leave home without them), I keep a pincer board with me too to order my most needed documents(in my case all of my "big" car documents, and it also helps to have some good quality white paper to write on. PENS! This is what you got me sold on the video the moment you mentioned them! "Black ones, because they are good if you need to scan something after that" - I don't know how many times I had to explain myself to other people why most of my pens are black(and I have at least 2 pencils too) - scanning, copying, faxing - everything is so much better quality if it's done with a black pen or a very good quality pencil :) Since I'm also into electronics I have just one tiny thing to mention, but it caught my eye and it's going to keep bugging me if I just stay silent about it: You put your iPad with your screen out, and you did it twice. This makes me feel that this is maybe an unconscious habit. This increases the chance of the screen braking. Yes you had some had objects behind the iPad from the other side of the bag, BUT - if you just arrange the board to have the pinch facing inwards, and the vest for example between the board and the "head phones" section - this will reduce even more the chance of an accidental damage - probably more than double. Thank you for the awеsome video and continue making them. I'm watching most of them when I get some free time, and it really helps me prepare for what is to come :)

I remember during the 90’s that the pilots used to carry 2 bags. One like yours and the second one , which was heavy, containing all the Jeppesen charts. (Prior to the iPad revolution. It was a nightmare, especially the need to update them so often!

Don't know why but it seems that lufthansa crews always flight with very big and heavy rimowa case. Pretty in appropriate expecially on a crj900 considering that usually they end up in a small cargo hold for cabin baggage.
