Why do captains earn such high salary?
Written by Capt Lim   
Friday, 12 September 2008 23:47
Hi Captain Lim,

I am sorry to ask this question that might be bothering to you, but why do the pilots, especially captains receive very high pay? I am aspiring to become a pilot for Malaysia Airlines and I need the answer to this question.

I am quite scared when I recently found out that pilots, especially captains in Malaysia Airlines can earn up to RM 30,000 per month. Now, that is quite a large sum of money for local Malaysians like me where the sum of my parent's salary doesn't even reach RM 5000 and I have always wanted to earn that much.

Does a pilot, especially a captain in Malaysia really earn that large salary?

Why do pilots receive high pay and what is the rationale behind the high pay?

What is the reason for the high pay? Is it that the job is too prolific or just because you are risking your life?

I hope I will receive an honest and just reply.

Thank you very much.

From,

Satia Silan,
An aspiring pilot who will be joining Malaysia Airlines in few years time.

Please help! I have a fear when the door of the plane closes.

Dear Captain Lim,

I have a fear that when the plane door closes, I might panic because I have a problem with closed-in places that I can not get out of.

Now I really have a problem because when they have an over lay, they let you stay in the plane for a long time.

PLEASE HELP... MY FAMILY WOULD APPRECIATE IT TOO.

Bernadette.

 
What happens during an engine failure or decompression on the Boeing 777?
Written by Capt Lim

Hi Capt Lim,

How are you Sir? I am a cabin crew with Malaysia Airlines and have just got my CPL/IR.

What happens when you are cruising at about FL250 and you have one engine failure, say on a Boeing 777-200? I guess you would commence a drift down on one engine, but how about the terrain clearance?  

What about decompression? You have to dive down to 10,000 feet but how would you know that you are not going to hit a mountain top? The situation is critical as you dive down but at the same time, you might have obstacles which you might not be sure of its height. 

Thank you very much. May God bless you and your family.

Harry
