A SIA pilot's flying routine
Written by Capt Lim   
Saturday, 30 August 2008 22:02

Hi Captain Lim,

You have made a very informative website and I really appreciate it very much . However, I am curious about some aspects in the flight routine of a pilot that I can't seem to find the answers around here.

Firstly, I heard from a SIA pilot during a presentation in my school that pilots work in shifts throughout the year. For example, they have like 2 weeks of continuous flying and then 2 weeks of break to stay at home and spend time with their family. I was wondering if it is true and is the flying and staying at home block so defined? 

Secondly, I want to know about how long will pilot stay at a destination before moving on to the next. I heard that on a single flight routine the pilot will move on to many countries before flying back home. So, I am wondering about how long will the break be between each flight for the pilots.

Thirdly, also with regards to the answers to the above two questions, I am wondering if they apply to the cabin crew as well. 

I am referring in the context of Singapore Airlines, but if you are not that clear about SIA, please also let me know in general of all the other airlines.

Thank you very much! Smile

Yours sincerely,

Hei Yao

 
What is your opinion of the Fokker 100?

Hello Captain Lim,

What is your opinion of the Fokker 100? Are they considered to be old aircraft or still in its prime?

Thank You

Dmitriy

Hi Dmitriy,

The Fokker 100 was a popular aircraft in the late 1980s but the improved models of the Boeing 737 and Airbus A319 soon affected its sale and Fokker became insolvent thereafter. The last production of the plane ended in 1997 and up to August 2006, only 229 Fokker 100s remained with around 47 airlines around the world.
