So... this old pilot dies and is met at the pearly gates by
St. Peter.

"OH! I see you were a pilot", says St. Peter...
"Follow me."

St. Peter takes the pilot to a beautiful celestial airport
with perfect smooth runways of all descriptions and hangar
after hangar filled with the most wonderful aircraft ever
made. "The keys are in them, fly anything you want.
Fuel is no issue, they don't ever run out". Then
he takes him over to a classy little joint at the FBO and
brings him inside. There's a buffet with all the best
food and a fully stocked open bar with nothing but top
shelf liquor. Sitting around the tables are some of the
finest pilots that ever lived. St. Peter introduces him to
a few and sits down to have a drink with him.

"Man! This really is heaven?" says the pilot,
"Certainly not what I was expecting, this is

St. Peter just smiles and nods and pours him another drink.
After sitting and drinking and reveling in it all for
awhile, the pilot recognizes an old familiar sensation.
Tentatively he asks, "Uhm, St. Peter? Uh... I sure
wasn't expecting this with this here brand new heavenly
body, but I do believe I need to go find a rest room to
uh... go relieve myself. I don't see any of the usual
signs on doors, where should I go?"

"Oh, no problem", says St. Peter, "Just
follow me".

St. Peter takes him out back and shows him to the edge of a
little hole in a cloud. "Just go right there".

The pilot walks over to the edge of the hole in the cloud
and looks down over the edge. "Uh, St. Peter? There
appears to be some people down there... "

"Oh that's OK", says the wise old Saint,
"They're from the FAA"

That is just too good! Hey, wait a minute...my dad retired from the FAA :D

Actually he was the one the pilots wanted to see-he approved modifications to their planes.

They actually called themselves the FFA: Flying Fuzz of da Airways
