Something about this sets off my bullshit-o-meter, but I don't know enough about take-off and landing procedures to say for certain. Anyone who does know something, care to comment?

I hold my breath. His fingers skillfully stimulating me through the cloth, it’s heavenly, and my hips start moving at their own rhythm, pushing against his hand. As the sensations take over, I tilt my head back, my eyes rolling to the back of my head, my mouth slack, and I groan. The pressure is building slowly, inexorably inside me … oh my.

It's entirely bullshit.

Quote :
“Okay, tower.

This is not how you call ATC.

Quote :
PDX this is

You do not call an airport by its IATA code either. You would be calling Portland Tower.

Quote :
Charlie Tango Golf – Golf Echo Hotel, cleared for take-off. Please confirm, over.”

Sooo apparently this helicopter's registration number is NCTGGEH. While the N is typically left out while communicating in the US (all civilian aircraft's registration numbers start with N in the US), it has to contain some, you know, NUMBERS. From Wikipedia:

Quote :
In the United States, the registration number is also referred to as an "N-number", as all aircraft registered there have a number starting with N. An alphanumeric system is used because of the large numbers of aircraft registered in the United States. An N-number may only consist of one to five characters, must start with a digit other than zero, and cannot end in a run of more than two letters. In addition, N-numbers may not contain the letters I or O, due to their similarities with the numerals 1 and 0.

The second major issue in just one line is that you never ever ever ever say something like, "cleared for take-off, please confirm." The only, ONLY people who get to say "cleared for takeoff" is air traffic control. The only people who get to use the word "take-off" are ATC, which is then repeated back to ensure understanding. I'm trying to find my ground school textbook right now, but it should be more like:

"Mustang Four One Six Juliet Mike, Portland Tower, cleared for takeoff runway 10R."
"Portland Tower, Mustang Four One Six Juliet Mike, cleared for takeoff runway 10R."

If the pilot is unsure of what he just heard, the correct thing to say is simply "say again," not "cleared for takeoff, please confirm."

If all of this seems oddly specific and strict, there is a reason for it.

Quote :
“Charlie Tango - you are clear.

Again, no. Although it's fairly common to shorten aircraft numbers with aircraft you've been actively communicating with for awhile, you go with the last three, not the first two. And "you are clear" is not something ATC would say.

Quote :
PDX to call,

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I'm pretty sure this is just made-up gibberish at this point.

Quote :
proceed to one four thousand,

what

It's a fucking helicopter, right? 14,000 feet is higher than the service ceilings of most of them. 14,000 feet is higher than a Bell 206 JetRanger's by 500 feet. 14,000 and up is getting into huge, really fucking expensive helicopter territory.

The kind that would be a lot more impressive to have a pilot fly for you so you can have fun in the back rather than demonstrate your flying... "skills."

Quote :
heading zero one zero, over. ”

Well, at least they're actually heading north..

Quote :
“Roger tower, Charlie Tango set,

"Set?" The fuck?

Quote :
over and out.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Quote :
Here we go,” he adds to me, and the helicopter rises slowly and smoothly into the air.

Heheh, yeah, okay.

Quote :
“PDX this is Charlie Tango now at one four thousand, over.” He exchanges information with air traffic control. It all sounds very professional to me.

Funny, it sounds very amateurish to me. Once you leave an airport's airspace they no longer give any kind of fuck about you unless you're specifically asking them for additional information or help.

Quote :
I think we’re moving from Portland’s air space to Seattle International Airport’s.

I'll bet she doesn't even know what Sea-Tac is short for.

Quote :
“Understood Sea-Tac,

So he's calling Portland "PDX" but he's calling Sea-Tac "Sea-Tac" as opposed to "SEA"?

MAKE UP YOUR MIND IDIOT

Quote :
standing by

Standing by for WHAT?

Quote :
over and out.”

Quote :
We ride into the dark night in silence for a while. The bright spot that is Seattle is slowly getting bigger.

Wait, so... you're in a beautiful region like the Pacific Northwest, flying up the Cascades, high enough to probably see Mount Rainier... and you're doing it at night, when you can't see jack shit. Moron.

Quote :
“Sea-Tac tower to Charlie Tango. Flight plan to Escala in place.

This is NOT how flight plans work. You file a flight plan before take-off. It's basically a heads-up saying where and when you expect to be flying, and when you expect to be done flying. When you are done flying, you call in to close your flight plan. If you don't close your flight plan, Search and Rescue starts looking for you along your posted flight plan. Incidentally, filing a flight plan is optional.

Also, Escala? He's going to fucking fly this thing to France?

Why is Sea-Tac talking to him about this?

Quote :
Please proceed. And standby. Over.”

"Please go ahead and wait a minute."

What

Quote :
“This is Charlie Tango, understood Sea-Tac.

You do? Good, because I sure fucking don't.

Quote :
Standing by, over and out.”

I'm glad you just tore that apart, Penguin. I had to read that part and had no fucking clue if it was accurate or just gibberish.

Also, we get really side-tracked when reading this book. I just cut out 10 minutes of mindless conversation... ABOUT THE WEATHER. See? The weather is more interesting than Fifty Shades of Grey!

Chapter 4 with rae, theweirdkind, Braigwen, and Somath.

From Hollywood Reporter

Quote :
One woman -- apparently also a fan of the books -- has used scientific photo composite software to create a mug shot of the sexy sadist.

A British professor, University of Central Lancashire's (UCLan) Dr. Faye Skelton, used various parts of male celebrities faces based on female readers descriptions of the book’s protagonist.

Seems most of the women included male star’s names in their fantasy ideas of Grey. So, Skelton cobbled together hair from Channing Tatum and Brad Pitt, the new face of Chanel,, eyes from Patrick Dempsey, Johnny Depp, recently named the CFDA's 2012 Fashion Icon, the face shape of Armani underwear poster boy David Beckham, a nose like Chris Hemsworth, Beckham and Pitt’s jawlines, and finally, and inexplicably, Val Kilmer’s lips.

Dr. Skelton used efit, a software used by the British police to create composites of criminals.

So it's actually a composite of a bunch of women's jilling fantasy of Grey, rather than his actual description in the book (what little there is).

But, hey... Here he is: (Spoilered for being very erotic)
