    has FREE in promo code, but item is not free, how is that a deal?

      this free gift with $0.50 postage. 50 cents might be only 5% of the postage, but it is a way to avoid fake registrants and fair to all customers.

      • +11 votes

        Charging 50 cents is totally fine but I think they should just remove the bs explanation RE: 5% and being fair.
        How does it cost them 10 USD to mail that keyring anyway?

          Surprise: it doesn't.

          I also wouldn't be surprised if the 50c almost makes them a profit in all honesty.. These keyrings would be dirt cheap.

      Remove before flight is a safety warning often seen on removable aircraft and spacecraft components, typically in the form of a red ribbon, to indicate that a device, such as a protective cover or a pin to prevent the movement of mechanical parts, is only used when the aircraft is on the ground (parked or taxiing). On small general aviation aircraft, this may include a pitot tube cover or a control lock. In some cases, non-removal of a labelled part has caused airplane crashes, like that of Aeroperú Flight 603. The warning appears in English only. Similar ribbons labelled pull to arm or similar are found on missiles and other weapon systems that are not mounted on aircraft.

      It is common to see key rings, T-shirts, bag tags, belts and other such products with this ribbon, especially for people who work in aviation or aviation enthusiasts.

        Accident Brief: N298WA Beech B58, 28-Feb-12.

        During takeoff, the pilot realised there was an abnormally low airspeed indication, and decided to discontinue the takeoff. The main wheels ‘locked up’ under full braking, and the aeroplane ran off the end of the runway on to soft ground, which caused the nose wheel to collapse.

        The pitot cover had not been removed before flight.

      It's for decoration lol…people into streetwear wear this on their bomber jackets etc. It's a decorative keyring basically.

      Mile high club ! hook that on your trouser's zipper….

        then you would be wandering through the boarding gate with bits hanging out…

          Dont worry, they will get used to see that quite often… It's a norm after this deal ~~

      started for aviation.

      then Nike/Jordan started adding it to shoes as a homage to his airness.

      that has now filtered to streetwear fashion.

    really really cool motorcyclists hang them from their keys to let everyone know they are going to go very very fast

    •  

      I've seen it, but it doesn't make sense.

      Like, dude, the tag says you gotta remove your key. Good luck going fast with no ignition.

    Don't knock it. This is worth it for my son who has just started training to work in the aviation industry. He will like it as a small treat.

      Is it his passion? Failed pilot here, that shit is hard work. Wish I had fully assessed the effort and workload to even get into your first job.

      •  

        Which bit of the process did you fail? Getting a job?

        •  

          Between private and commercial, nearer to the latter I realised I was unsuited and at that point in my life felt incapable of making the changes required to get back on track. Never failed anything per se but was not clearly on track towards the next step. Crummy situation all-round but I still believe it was the right decision for me :<

        I spent 6 months hitchhiking around Africa before I got my first job flying in a warzone with crap pay. Because of that I ended up having a career that took me to 142 countries, flew 14 presidents, movie stars and so on. Most of that was with my last job (middle east) taking home approx $300,000 a year plus tips (highest $20k US but 10k common) and I only worked 3 times a month.
        It isn't easy and there is an excess of low hour pilots, but you make the effort and put up with that initial workload then there is a lot out there

          Got a set of memoirs? Would be totally interested in hearing random stories haha.

        •  

          sorry I didn't mean that to sound like I am bragging….the point I am making is that everything requires effort and workload. There are lots of jobs out there, you just need to look and find them. When I started nothing was happening in Oz, yet dozens of pilots were hanging out at common spots competing for 1 job. Nowadays it is much much easier and we are in the middle of a critical pilot shortage. You can literally walk in to something fairly easy if you apply yourself.

          @Thiefsie:

          Got a set of memoirs? Would be totally interested in hearing random stories haha

          Lots of really good, funny and controversial stories. We flew some pretty nasty characters as well though including 2 well known presidents who ended up being executed by their own people! Despite that more laughs than tears

    Remove Before Flight Key Chain - Random Color

    […]

    This Red and White Remove Before Flight Keychain is well made and durable

    That suggests that all the other colours are poor quality.

    • +1 vote

      Well no, it may suggest but nothing is said about the quality of the other colours. Logically:

      P => Q doesn't imply ~P => ~Q, rather it implies ~Q => ~P, i.e. if a keychain is not well made or durable, then it cannot be red and white.

    I actually have a genuine, relevant use for it - my Phantom drone has a small foam piece that supports the camera gimbal during transport, but has to be removed during pre-flight setup. This will be absolutely perfect. Thanks OP!

    • +2 votes

      Yes, I have one and use it for this exact purpose. Powered up the Phantom and took off once with the gimbal clamp still on. Since I've had this attached to the gimbal clamp have never forgotten to remove it again.

  •  

    These are pretty popular in the area I work (aviation) so I'll pick up one of these. I'd guess the ones I see people have are probably "genuine" though? As in one's that were used formally for real.

    Has anyone checked AliEx or eBay yet? Sometimes these Zapals deals aren't the cheapest.

  •  

    not sure if anyone noticed, only the blue key chain picture has the tag random. so…i'm assuming all keychains are going to be blue. buying one to test it out. :x

    I really wish there was a rule that for a bargain to be a bargain, it has to actually be worth its 'suggested' pre-bargain price. This kind of crap just detracts from worth while posts.

    it still works btw, not sure why marked as expired.

    Got mine today and it's blue so its going in the bin. Anything but red looks silly.
