Book Launching by Tan Sri Tony Fernandes and Aireen Omar

SEPANG, 18 October 2013 – AirAsia, Skytrax’s World’s Best Low Cost Carrier today launched a book written by ex-pilot and current flight simulator instructor Captain Lim Khoy Hing, aptly titled LIFE IN THE SKIES - Everything You Want To Know About Flying.

The launch of the book happens to be Captain Lim’s over 40 years of experience in the aviation industry. Captain Lim is famously known for his share of voice and experience in the AirAsia Group’s In-Flight Travel 3Sixty Magazine under the Pilot’s Perspective column.

The LIFE IN THE SKIES offer readers all they need to know about flying , promising excitement with answers to frequently asked questions from the curious public of what happens behind the scenes before, during and after take-off.

Captain Lim said,  “The successful publication of my book is a dream comes true for me. It has taken me more than 12 years in the planning. Tony’s famous theme, dreaming big and doing the impossible has finally inspired me to realise my dream.”

Captain Lim Khoy Hing, who is currently a flight simulator instructor for AirAsia and AirAsia X, began his flying career with the AirAsia Group in 2006 up until his retirement in 2011. He flew the Airbus A320, A330 and A340 aircraft and has logged a total of 25.500 flying hours, having flown to over 80 destinations.

During his piloting days, Captain Lim Khoy Hing realised that many people were afraid to fly and had many questions about their fears and flying in general. This then led to his personal website www.askcaptainlim.com which of course paved the way for our beloved captain to his first publication.



Tony and my Book

Co-Founder and AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes is the proud sponsor of the book who had himself pen down the foreword for the 249 page book.

Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said, “I am proud that our captain has finally published a book through his passion for flying with us. This book is indispensable to anyone who has ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes before, during and after each flight. It offers insights and great experience of a pilot who in the past had great passion for flying and who is living his dream.”

“The launch of the book is a proud and great memorable achievement for the AirAsia group, as it depicts one of the many talents we have among our 10,000 All Star employees. AirAsia is honoured to be part of realising ones dream and we have always embedded in our staff to “Dream the Impossible, Believe the Unbelievable and Never Say No for an Answer” and this achievement reiterates just that,” concluded Tony.

Interested readers may purchase the book on board our flights, at the AirAsia Megastore Kiosk located at the Kuala Lumpur Low Cost Carrier Terminal or order copies online here
