Will hearing problem prevent me from becoming a pilot?

How to read an Audiogram

Hi Capt. Lim,

Your book, Life in the Skies truly inspires me a lot.

I've been dreaming of becoming an airline pilot since when I was a little boy.

I have just graduated with a BS in Aerospace Engineering last March. I am planning to proceed to flying.

Will I be qualified to undergo flying training if I have hearing problem, especially on my left ear?

I am looking forward to your response.

Thank you captain

What is the effect of loss of all aircraft engines?

All Engines Failed

Hi Captain Lim,

If an aircraft loses all its engines, does the oxygen inside the cabin escape?

If so, after the air pressure is gone, can the doors be opened at a lower altitude to let oxygen in?

What does the pilot do when the plane loses its airspeed?

Air France crash report

Hello Capt Lim,

In an emergency similar to AF447; in the case of loss of airspeed indication at high altitude due to failure of all pitot tubes, what is the QRH guidance to maintain control of the B777?

Does the Non-Normal tab of the center/lower screen in the Boeing 777 cockpit provide guidance on the needed steps for pilots to take in this scenario?

Many thanks for establishing this website!

My extreme fear of flying over the Bay of Bengal

It's easy to fly a plane in turbulence

Dear Captain Lim,

Thank you for your wonderful site.

I have an extreme fear of flying (mainly from turbulence). For every trip I plan, I always make sure to check the plane's route ahead and see which areas we are passing.

I'm planning a trip from Doha, Qatar to Singapore. The plane will pass exactly above Bay of Bengal which as far as the stories I have heard and read in many articles, is the worst place you wanna fly above. People are mentioning extreme turbulence and plane drops when passing over this area.

My main concerns are:

1. Is the Bay of Bengal a dangerous place? How safe it is?
2. Is it true about the extreme turbulence over this bay?
3. Do you have any tips or assuring information to help me get over this fear?

Thanks!

Pilot Incapacitation Airbus A320-A340

Hi Capt Lim,

Is it possible for only 1 pilot to fly a huge commercial aircraft, for instance, in an emergency situation?
