Racking my brains to find an FAR that one can admit to violating (other than inadvertently not slowing to 250 KIAS below 10000ft) in an interview (coming from a 121 carrier). You cannot say "never", its not believable but you don't want to hang yourself either!! Any clues? Thanks.
How about....at a remote airport, night, no maintenance, and a position light is inop? Flew home. Doesn't seem to damning.
30 nm veil Mode C or Class C mode C requirement? Let's say approach was not getting a readout on your altitude during your last flight. You landed, had the encoder replaced, ground tested it and everything appeared fine. You test flight it and asked tower for a Mode C readout. Nothing....
Transponder, that is a good one. Add to that forgetting to call ATC when entering the hold, not being able to climb/descend 500' per minute, ETA is off by three minutes or more, not calling ATC when the cigarette lighter/adapter has failed (reporting any equipment malfunction), failure to report unforecast wx (cig bkn 5000' as opposed to bkn 8000').
Good ones!

My advice: Just pick one! ;)
