What are the different categories of thunderstorm?
Written by Capt Lim   
Sunday, 06 July 2008 04:28

Hi Capt Lim,

Can you tell me the different category of thunderstorm?

Thank you.

Senoque.

Hi Senoque,

There are various categories of typhoons and turbulence but I have not come across a well defined category of thunderstorm other than whether it was "strong" or "severe".

Hi Captain Lim,

What are your views on the Boeing 747 cargo plane crash (broke into two) on take off in Belgium?

Mike Hodson

Hi Mike,

Even though the reason for the crash is unknown, I can only say that it was probably a case of a rejected take off arising from a technical problem that turned almost disastrous.

 
Whether I can unfreeze my ATPL with single engine hours?
Written by Capt Lim   
Sunday, 29 June 2008 10:17

Hi Capt Lim,

I am a student in one of the Flying Academies in Malaysia. News regarding the increase in fuel price shocked me as most of the local airlines are stopping or reducing pilot recruitment. My questions are:-

a. Is it better for me to unfreeze my Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) before joining the airlines?

b. What position do I get if I unfreeze my ATPL and join an airline?

c. Can I fly single engine aircraft such as Piper 28 to unfreeze my ATPL?

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

A medical student aspiring to be an airline pilot...
Written by Capt Lim

Hi Captain Lim,

I have just browsed through your site and it's really useful. I am a final year medical student and aspire to be an international airline pilot. I am due to graduate in March, 2010 and I need your advice in the following points:-

a. Which is the best of the best flight school for International students in the USA?

b. Is it better for me to work as an instructor to build up my hours or should I return to my home country and apply for the airlines as I do not intend to spend extra money and not being hired after that?                                             

c. As an Arab from Egypt, which airlines can I apply to?                                             

d. Does my medical degree be an advantage when I apply for a major airline or shall I consider having a degree in aeronautical science, for example, to stand a high chance of being hired?

Is it dangerous for an Airbus A340 to fly with a cracked windscreen?
Written by Capt Lim   
Friday, 20 June 2008 22:36

Dear Captain Lim,

I read from the newspaper that a Cathay Pacific A340 Airbus continued its journey from Vancouver to Hong Kong with a broken wind screen. I wonder if this is too dangerous for the pilot to continue with the journey.

Why didn't the captain of the Airbus divert his plane to a nearest airport for an emergency landing instead of continuing with the journey? The flight finally landed at Seoul due to insufficient fuel to proceed onto Hong Kong.

Although the news reported that the wind screen is made of 3 layers of glass (I doubted that the wind screen should be made of acrylic resin), will it break into pieces when the internal compartment is pressurized.

Can you explain how a well-trained pilot deal with this kind of emergency?
