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.

 
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?
Written by Capt Lim   
Tuesday, 26 August 2008 00:34

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?
