    Oh relax. Remember there are far fewer things to crash into after the wheels are up.

    Hey, I drink WHILE I cycle. Of course it's usually water or energy mix.

    Who could be so unkind, to arrest a man for driving while blind?

    In the United States, a person cannot act as Pilot in Command or Second in Command of any aircraft if they have consumed alcohol in any amount in the past 8 hours.

    Furthermore, the maximum blood alcohol content to act as PIC or SIC is 0.04.

    What that means is, if you have a beer with dinner, you cannot fly. But, if you're out all night on a terrific bender, get smashed, but quit drinking at midnight, you can fly at 8am with your 0.04, still a little drunk, and horribly hung over and feeling like crap, and in no condition to fly.

    I haven't had a drink in almost 14 years, but that last one was a doozie.

    I wonder if I'd pass the breathalyzer?

    British laws uses .02 BAC for pilots. How dense does someone have to be to press this? Hotel pubs have cameras, credit cards receipts are time stamped, hotel room entry with key cards are time stamped, and, last but not least, going through security at Heathrow is absolutely painful. Low situational awareness does have a Dawinian effect in the aviation community.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    Ah, but that would fall into the category of "under the influence of alcohol", which is separate from the BAC reg.

    No person may act or attempt to act as a crewmember of a civil aircraft—
    (1) Within 8 hours after the consumption of any alcoholic beverage;
    (2) While under the influence of alcohol;
    (3) While using any drug that affects the person's faculties in any way contrary to safety; or
    (4) While having an alcohol concentration of 0.04 or greater in a blood or breath specimen. Alcohol concentration means grams of alcohol per deciliter of blood or grams of alcohol per 210 liters of breath.
