Safe Snaps

There is an appropriate time and place for everything, including capturing snapshots for lasting memories.

As smartphones evolve to become smarter, their built-in cameras ever more powerful, and the range of photo editing apps even more creative, it seems that conventional consumer cameras are becoming obsolete. Given the ease of whipping out a smartphone, capturing a moment and sharing it via social media, it’s not surprising that the smartphone, in all its incarnations, is everywhere. In fact, its presence is so ubiquitous that, at times, users have been surprised to learn that in certain locations and situations, it may not be acceptable to be snap-happy.

 
Perils of Personal Parachute

Below is the second part to an earlier posting on the 'perils of personal parachute', a question by Jenny…

Hi Captain Lim,

As what we have seen and heard from the news, the survival rate when a plane crashes is mostly 0%. Is there no technology now that can be done to improve the situation?

Are personal parachute impractical to increase the survival rate at all?

If let's say the turbine will suck people into it, can it be turned off, and let the people get out of the plane at a safe height?

Or are there a lot of other factors that might affect the human lives. Or are there any ways at all to save any life at all?

I'm just a little curious about the technology behind safety and life saving measures nowadays.

Jenny.

A Pilot’s Life

Pilot's Perspective: A Pilot’s Life

What does it take to be a pilot? Captain Lim Khoy Hing explains the requirements and shares about life in the skies.

Words: Captain Lim Khoy Hing


“Wow, you’re a pilot? That’s fascinating!” I get this remark quite often. The life of an airline pilot conjures up images of travels to exotic destinations where there are beautiful places to be explored, exciting people to be met and rip-roaring adventures to be had. And these fantasies are exactly why many aspiring pilots chase this dream, which, when viewed this way, can be fraught with disappointments.

Let me give you some insight into this profession. An airline pilot’s primary responsibility is to ensure that he or she flies the plane and its passengers safely from the departure airport to their destination. This is foremost on our minds, before all those dreams of glamour and adventure. Navigating the skies, seeing the world from above and realising what an awesome responsibility we bear in the safe carriage of our precious cargo – our guests – these things drive us to be our best.

 
Saluting Cabin Crew

 Pilot’s Perspective: Saluting Cabin Crew

Becoming a member of the cabin crew requires much more than a pretty face. Comprehensive training, a cool head and a big heart all figure into the makeup of the glamorous jet setting crew.

Words: Captain Lim Khoy Hing



In January 15, 2009, Captain Sully successfully touched down on the Hudson River after an unfortunate bird strike event. He was praised in the media for the way he handled the landing, but the other quiet hero of the day was Flight Attendant Doreen Welsh who efficiently evacuated the cabin, instructing passengers to jump over the seats in order to move forward. She was so focused on guiding her 150 passengers to safety that she failed to notice a large cut on her leg.

Flight attendants have sometimes been called ‘trolley dollies’ – a term coined at an earlier era, in reference to how the cabin crew served drinks and other refreshments from a trolley. In the early days of aviation, the job of a flight stewardess (the preferred terminology now is ‘flight attendant’ or ‘cabin crew’) was an enviable one, as it allowed these sophisticated and fashionable women to fly around the globe and stay at topnotch hotels in exotic places while visiting wonderful attractions beyond the reach of regular folks. People perceived this career to be a dream vocation.
