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?

Air France Flight 447 Crash 'Didn't Have to Happen,' Expert Says

Dear Capt. Lim

I am an aviation enthusiast but sometimes can become nervous about flying! I like reading from your website!

Please, I have a question about a flight that I am anxious about!

I am flying from Recife, Brazil to Portugal next month for work in an A330! I am anxious because it is on the same plane model, at night and passes exactly where Air France 447 unfortunately crashed! So I am a bit scared!

Were the issues with the pitot tubes solved? Did pilots get additional training and are ensuring their radars can capture where the bad weather will be?

Is it as safe flying on an A330 as it would be on another model like an A340 or Boeing 777?

Thank you very much!

Kind regards,

Aristides

How Safe is Flying?

Hi Captain Lim,

I am Keith from Singapore. My school has organised a trip to Taiwan but my parents did not allow me to go at first. However, after much persuasion, she changed her mind. That was before the MH17 crash. (My deepest condolences to the lost lives)

After MH 17 crashed, she started to develop this fear of me going abroad (which I have done once by myself and many times with my family) She said she was very worried as she thought something could happen to me

I have read your book, Life In The Skies and I assured her about the safety about flying you have written in your book but my mom still have that fear in her...

Please help me.

And one more thing, when I grow up I really want to become a pilot like you then retire and become a "pilot teacher"

Could you please give me some insight on what you learn when you undergo the pilot training.

Thank you

Keith
