Bumps in the Air
Written by Capt Lim

(Below is my contribution to the Travel 3Sixty in-flight magaine for October 2015)

Some air travellers describe their encounter with air pockets as dropping thousands of feet.

I have often explained that the experience is similar to travelling on land where a smooth road suddenly gives way to bumps and potholes, making the journey a little uncomfortable.

WHAT IS AN AIR POCKET?

In spite of the term being quoted so often, it is in fact impossible for there to be a ‘pocket’ in the sky as air vacuum cannot exist in the atmosphere.

Soaring into the Sky 

Below is a version of my 18 minutes talk in TEDx Petaling Street 2015 (a Chinese spoken event in Malaysia).  My talk was the only 2 exceptions in English given on 14th November 2015 at Wisma MCA.

“Good morning ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking.
I am Captain Lim from the Flight Deck.
Welcome aboard our flight, TEDx 1411.

Please fasten your seat belts!
If you have not, we are getting air borne shortly!
I hope you all are going to enjoy your flight with me today!”

 
Overcoming Fear of Flying

Overcoming Fear of Flying

After 25 years - I can fly!

Hi Capt. Tom,

Until last week, I had been terrified of flying. In April, I was awarded a contract with a client in the USA and I knew I'd have to deal with this fear or fail in my career. (I'm in Alberta, Canada) It was 25 years since I had last flown and my biggest fear was losing control of myself and freaking out on the plane. (Control issues when the door closes, etc.) Turbulence was also a concern.

Knowing I needed help beyond meds and alcohol, I found your course online and bought the Guaranteed SOAR Program- the full meal deal as it were. I watched all of the videos and did the strengthening exercises. I had those down and fully ingrained in about 3 months.

The Mystery Of The Bermuda Triangle
 
Hello Capt Lim,

I am a Reggae singer and pilot and am planning a trip to Miami, I have heard that you can cut your time by flying through the triangle.

I want to make it there as quick as possible.

Are there any concerns?

Falling from the Sky - British Airways 9
 
Dear Capt Lim.

I have to fly to Jakarta via Singapore next week. I just heard news that 3000 people have been evacuated from villages in Sumatra because of increased activity in a nearby volcano.

I'm a really nervous flyer and this is playing on my mind.

Is it easy for aircraft to avoid volcanic ash?
