What is your opinion of the Fokker 100?
Written by Capt Lim

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.

 
Your exceptional website has helped us...

Dear Sir,

I would like to express my gratitude towards you for setting up this website for all the aspiring pilots. I have been a regular visitor to this site and have been going through all the contents as if it were a Bible. This was due to my deep desire to become an airline pilot.

I am glad to say that your website has really helped and I'm currently under training with SIA as one of their cadet pilots.

Thank you very much for the effort you put into this website. The information here is exceptional and has helped many of us cadets prepare for the interviews. Right now at our Flying College, the first thing some of the cadets would ask each other is whether we have visited your website. Most would respond with a yes.

Well Sir, all I can say is, Thank You very much and we do owe you one!

Why a sailor can have tattoo? Why not a pilot?

Hi Captain Lim,

I am a student for the A-Level course and dream to be a pilot desperately. I plan to apply to become a cadet pilot with Malaysia or Singapore Airlines after I have finished my course. I am worried about my tattoo - it is just my name - five words behind my forearm. I do regret about it now.

My question is - can a pilot with tattoo be hired? Why a sailor can have tattoo? Why not a pilot?

Do I qualify to join Singapore Airlines as a lady cadet pilot?

Dear Capt Lim,

Hello there! I am Caroline (not real name) and my dad was a captain with Singapore Airlines on the Boeing 744 fleet, Capt Roy (not real name)

I have always wanted to be a pilot too. However, I have all the odds stacked against me. For my first my education, I have 5 O-Levels but not in one sitting. I have English Language, Pure Chemistry, Pure Physics, Geography and Mathematics. However, I scored a D7 for Mathematics and I have mother tongue in another certificate. I then did my foundation in Life Sciences which also has a Mathematic module in it to prepare students for a B Sc course. I have cleared all modules and progressed to the degree program. I am currently completing my degree in Biomedical Sciences.

Next is my height and vision. I am 1.45 meters tall and I am partially color blind (red-green) though it's not as severe as I have my driving license. I do not seem to meet most of the prerequisites listed, 5 O's in one sitting and a minimum height of 1.65m.

Does that height apply for women too? What about my color vision defect? I have knowledge on aircraft.

Caroline
