Lately, I was thinking about something interesting to ask and to learn from. I was wondering if some of you would share what was the scariest thing that have ever happened to you in your pilot career.

I never screwed around with Navajos in icing...well same goes for turbine anything, but slightly more tolerant when there's reserve power and more altitude options in pressurized airplanes
The MU-2 pilots always said they'd rather be in a Navajo in ice. When was that incident over mabel lake? Before my time i think

That’s amazing. I’ve never flown a ho but the rice rocket will carry a lot more ice than it has any right to as long as everything is serviceable.

Retired for stupid reasons after 4 decades but I got a passtime with pocket money dropping skydivers.............
Hardest and most stressful job in my life. AND, believe it of not, need to fly to a standard that exceeds anything I ever did. All that for pocket money.
Thought I saw it all after 40 years from cessnas to 747's and everything in between.
I was wrong.
Inflated egos need not apply. Adrenaline junkies are the perfect fit. I am neither of those, so I do what I can and show up for work with more trepidation than I ever have..........Flying was always easy for me, this stuff.....not so much.
Attempting to understand the world. I have not succeeded.
