Default broken altimeter award

I was browsing ebay and stumbled across this gem, I thought it was funny and worth mentioning.

ebay altimeter

Slightly non PC link, if you are easily offended don't click. Don't say you were never warned.

A little know fact -
There are three levels of Mile High Award.

Bronze - With the pilot
Silver - with the pilot WHILE he (or she) is acting as P1
Gold - With the pilot while P1 during a night solo IFR approach in a thunderstorm.

Then, of course, there's the 2 mile high award.....

now, I've always wondered, is that MSL, or AGL?

because, say, in Denver, MSL would be on the taxiway. which seems much safer.

AGL according to the regs.

From the page:


The FAA has been mandated by Congress to regulate the activities of the "Mile High Club" (MHC). Under present rules, any "biblical knowledge" of your passenger or copilot accomplished at an altitude equal to or greater than one statute mile (5,280 feet) above ground level (AGL), regardless of the degree of difficulty, entitles a person to the coveted MHCE (Mile High Club Endorsement) and membership in the exclusive "Mile High" Club.
