How safe is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner?

Pilot Report – Flying the Boeing 787

Hello Sir,

I'm a fan of yours and a regular visitor of this site for more than 5 years now. I am planning to book a flight from Singapore to Dubai via Qatar Airways using a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

I don’t know anything about this plane but I have heard a lot about its birth pains and I wanted to know your take on the safety of this plane.

Thank you sir and may you have the grandest day!

Monarch Airlines Boeing 757

Dear Captain Lim,

I really enjoy your website, thank you.

I'm very concerned; we've booked flights from London to Verona, Italy and return with Monarch, the low cost airline.

Outward journey aircraft seems fine, but I feel alarmed - return is with the 757. They only have three left in service and they will be retired three weeks after our flight in August.

Should I rebook with British Airways or Easy Jet?

Many thanks and very best wishes to you.

Trial Pilotless Plane over UK

Dear Capt. Lim,

I recognise that you have a lot of experience and I absolutely believe that you already have thousands flight hour. From your experience we can see that you have ability to see the future of aviation industry especially job as a pilot.

In this modern life, there are a lot of difference and development in aviation, especially the aircraft technology. A lot of company, I believe that they start to develop cockpit less or unmanned aircraft for commercial (airlines).

I wonder, what is your opinion about this? How long does it takes from now, the airlines start to use unmanned aircraft?

And if it does happen (and I believe it will) then there will be no more job for the pilot. What would it be for the pilot?

I guess that’s my question to you. I hope you can help me out with this.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Thank you,

Boeing 777 taking off – View from the Jump Seat

Dear Captain Lim,

I am a big aviation fan, just read your book and I like the story very much.

I just want to ask, is there any possibility that I can visit the flight deck during a flight?

I don't mind if it’s after flight, best if I can sit at the jump seat during take-off and landing.



A pilot wannabe who failed in the MPL pilots selection worries that his dream would die..

MPL Training by Finnair Flight Academy

Good Day Capt Lim,

I am a keen and ambitious guy whose long life dream is to fly with an airline for a living. I'm a Singaporean who had just completed my military service and now looking for an aviation course to pursue my dream.

Today I went for a selection test for MPL with Qatar Airways as well as for the CPL. Sad to say I didn't quite made if for MPL and I have the options to agree and take on the CPL.

There are a couple of questions that is running through my head after the selection. Here goes:-

1. What is bothering me now is that what are the benefits of these two licenses?

2. Are there any academy that offers MPL course? (I applied for ST Aerospace Academy and CAE Oxford Aviation Academy does not have any MPL course open at the moment)

3. If I were to complete my CPL course what kind of airline can I fly with?

4. Will I be dealing with a huge open window of not being able to find an airline after completion of my CPL?

I'm really worried that my dream was to die right here. I want to pursue and live this lifelong dream- to be a pilot.

Please help me here!

Thank You,

Worried Guy
