Meet Captain Pablo Mendoza, our beloved and larger-than-life drunk pilot in the aviation community.
Pablo Mendoza: A Passionate Aviator
Pablo has been flying for over two decades and his love for travel and adventure has taken him to every corner of the globe. From the bustling streets of Tokyo to the sandy beaches of the Caribbean, he has flown planes of all shapes and sizes, from commercial airliners to small private jets.
Captain Mendoza’s Hobbies
In his free time, Pablo Mendoza enjoys reading and reviewing books and has even started his own personal blog where he shares his thoughts on the latest reads and anything really. He’s not your average pilot, he’s got an imaginary wingman that comes to life every time he takes a sip. Meet Chuck, the monkey who joins him on every flight, well at least in his mind. But don’t worry, Chuck is a seasoned traveler, he’s been to the cockpit more times than the co-pilot. According to Pablo, Chuck is his wingman, and they have a lot of fun together. Chuck is always down for a good prank and never fails to crack up passengers and crew alike.
The Caribbean Party
One time, when they were flying to the Caribbean, Chuck convinced Pablo Mendoza to sneak a bottle of rum on board and they ended up having a little party in the cockpit during the flight. Delighted passengers snapped a picture of Chuck, who sat in the captain’s seat wearing sunglasses. That picture went viral on social media, and it became one of the most popular memes of that year.
Pablo Mendoza’s Dark Side
However, despite his fun-loving nature, Pablo Mendoza has a dark side. He has a love for alcohol that’s almost as strong as his love for flying… almost. Unfortunately, it’s gotten him into a bit of turbulence more than once. He’s been known to take the term “cockpit party” a bit too literally, showing up to fly under the influence. Let’s just say, the FAA grounded him temporarily, not for his flying skills, but for being a “grounded” individual.
Drunk Pilot Determination
Despite his missteps, Pablo continues to fly and see the world, always on the lookout for his next adventure. He’s dead set on kicking the booze and keeping himself and others out of harm’s way. He believes that life is too short to be serious all the time and that’s why he has Chuck, his imaginary monkey, to keep him company and make sure he never loses his sense of humor. Whether he’s sampling exotic foods or getting into mischievous mischief with Chuck, Captain Pablo Mendoza lives life to the fullest and shows no signs of slowing down.
