I flew on VATSIM drunk as a skunk the other night, and amazingly, got away with it. At least, I didn’t wake up to any angry notifications anyway.
Took off from Heathrow in the A32NX to do a short hop to Edinburgh. Apparently even that was too much for my alcohol-sodden brain and, seeing Manchester was still controlled that late (between 1 and 2am), hastily changed my IFR plan and diverted there.
Either the ground controller didn’t recognise I was drunk, or didn’t care. After landing he told me where to park, and by the time I’d done that he was offline. I think the poor sod probably wanted to log off but saw I was incoming, and kindly stayed online for me.
Anyway, the moral of the story is: if you think you’re too drunk to fly on VATSIM, do it anyway.
