How can a seat cushion be turned into a floatation device?
Written by Capt Lim   
Tuesday, 29 July 2008 11:51

Hi Captain Lim,

I'm very curious about the Airbus A380 and all of the luxuries inside it. Anyway, onto my question; how can a seat cushion be turned into a floatation device? I've been wondering this for a long time. I usually keep my seatbelt buckled at all times when I'm sitting in any vehicle on the ground or in the air.

I take Otravin before I board a flight to prevent the popping in my ears during the change in air pressure.

Sincerely,

Cheryl Surette

What would the Etihad Cadet Pilot Program aptitude tests be like?
Written by Capt Lim

Hi Captain Lim,

I have recently applied for the Etihad Cadet Pilot Program and have been invited to the first stage which includes Logic, Maths, English and the General Knowledge tests.

For the Maths tests, I have mainly been practicing quick subtractions, multiplications, etc. I know you are familiar with many of the Asian carriers aptitude test profile, so will the tests likely to be quick simple Maths or more complicated ones such as "A leaves at time X, B leaves at time Y, when will they meet" kind of question? Or, could it be similar to the QANTAS test in which there is a large amount of data interpretation?

Sorry if it's a silly question, it's just that I am not really sure what else to prepare for this test.

Thanks for your time,

Sam

 
Is there anything you can tell me about airport or airplane security?
Written by Capt Lim

Hey Capt Lim,

Thanks for your response. (I am the one whose mother wants YOU to fly him to the UK, he he!).

Over the last couple of weeks my mother had become more comfortable with me flying to the UK. However, with the recent news, both my mother and my father (who is the voice of reason in the family) have become increasingly worried that the airlines are going to be targeted this summer.

Now there's news of modified cameras and laptops that could easily go past security unnoticed. As a pilot yourself, is there anything you can tell me about airport or airplane security? This is your living, what is your approach if I may ask? Have all cockpit doors been reinforced with steel? Has this been done on the Boeing 777?

Do you know if all international flights have air marshals onboard? How wary are you? Where they are usually situated (you probably either don't know or can't expose this specific piece of information).
