If you were planning to join or re-affirm your membership to the Mile High Club using UK’s Mile High Flights, then you are out of luck. UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), equivalent of FAA, has refused to re-certify Mile High Flights, over fears distracted pilots could crash. Mile High Flights is a Gloucestershire (UK) based air charter company that allowed passenger to have sex while in-flight on its Cessna C208 Caravan airplanes. The aircrafts are fitted with a queen size bed in the rear of the aircraft. The company was started in 2008 by Mike Crisp
Mike Crisp doesn’t plan to give up that easy as claims he has invested more than $15,000 in equipping the aircraft with fire-retardant sheets, upholstery and bedding.
Mike Crisp who founded the company in 2008, reported “I’m not giving up on what was a popular business idea because someone at the CAA doesn’t like the sound of what goes on in our plane.
"Joining the Mile High Club is something a lot of couples dream of and we were providing the chance to fulfill that particular fantasy. In our two years trading we had people from all walks of life wanting to join the club, from 21st birthday flights to 60th birthday ones."Source: avstop.com
The company offers its passengers the option of two flight packages, “The Big One” at $854 (£640) for a 40 minute flight and the “VIP” for a 60 minute flight. In addition for a third person to travel along there is an additional passenger charge of $166.
Mile High Flights reports on their website that the fight time “will provide you and your partner ample time to indulge in your ultimate fantasies and experience an adventure fit for Hollywood.” The site also states once you arrive that the airport (Staverton) you will be greeted by the pilot who will answers questions, assist with boarding and provide safety instructions before takeoff. Once on aboard, the passengers are provided with chilled champagne and strawberries, an aphrodisiac. When airborne the pilot will inform the passengers when it is safe to engage in sex.
What is Mile High Club?
The Mile High Club (or MHC) is a slang term applied collectively to individuals who have sex while on board an aircraft in flight. There is no known formally constituted club so named. However, since "membership" of the "club" is really a matter of an individual asserting they have qualified, the qualifications for membership are open to some interpretation.
Or an alternate definition – the term "Mile High Club" refers to two or more people engaging in sexual activity (sexual intercourse) at an altitude of no less than 5,280 ft (a mile high above the earth) in an airplane.
Why would someone like to join this Club?
- Bragging rights
- Vibration of the plane for easier arousal
- Fantasy of being a pilot or flight attendants
- Plane/Metal Fetish
I would normally be OK with charter sex flights, but this time I agree with CAA. Cessna is a little too small for the sex act as the cockpit is right next to the make-shift bed. There is no way that a pilot will not get distracted with the sounds, visuals and movement! What do you think?
