Do things get weaker as they get bigger?
Written by Capt Lim

Hi Capt Lim,

Just a quick note of thanks as much as a question. Actually it's a very long note!

Your website has calmed my major fear, which was concern over the structural strength of the aircraft during heavy turbulence.

Ironically I am less afraid in smaller aircraft, as I find it easier to believe they are simply bouncing over choppy air like a car over a rough road and can easily withstand such impacts and jolts. When it comes to the huge Airbus and Boeing liners I find it harder to understand how anything of such sheer size can withstand such stresses.

 
Was the Boeing 777 crash at Heathrow due to pilot error or computer failure?
Written by Capt Lim

Dear Capt Lim,

I am unable to find any latest news on this crash. Why are there no answers as this type of aircraft is still flying around? It is unusual to have a crash at an airfield and have all the evidence, as was this case, and still unable to solve the problem. I believe the captain is still not flying.       

Is it pilot error or computer failure? This is the most important question to be answered.

Is it possible for a privately sponsored cadet pilot to be jobless after graduation?
Written by Capt Lim

Dear Captain Lim,

I heard rumors that chances of getting a job after graduation from a flying school is very low in Malaysia.

As for me, I am thinking of going to APFT privately. It will cost me around RM225K for the course and I definitely have to pay back the money (for the loan) at the end of the day.

So, is it possible for a private cadet pilot to become jobless after training? Any advice?

Thanks.

Why you cannot takeoff with Flaps 1 + F on the A320 with ADR 2 inoperative?
Written by Capt Lim

Hi Capt Lim,

On the ground with ADR 2 inoperative, why must takeoff be performed in Config 3 and not Config 1+F?

Thanks

Bob

Hi Bob,

Here is a little about the ADR (air data reference) for the benefit of others - the ADR is a part the ADIRU (Air Data and Inertial Reference Unit) that supplies a lot of vital information through the various sensors (temperature, pitot and static pressure probes, etc) on the body structure of the plane.

 
Can a senior RMAF pilot bypass the normal progression to be an airline captain?
Written by Capt Lim

Hi Captain Lim,

You have done a great job for all aspiring pilots around the world. I really appreciate your kindness and hard work that you have portrayed through this informative yet useful website.

I have a question for you. My cousin who is in the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) is considering becoming a commercial pilot. He has been serving for more than 10 years and is now a 28 years old air force pilot.

My cousin is confused about the ranking between the air force and commercial aviation. He is a Major but, can he take his rank into the commercial airlines (Malaysia Airlines), skip the natural upgrade process and become a captain?
