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
 
Is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner safe to fly?

Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner at Farnborough 2014

Hi Capt Lim,

I am flying internationally from Florida to Gatwick, London for the first time. I leave in about a month's time and have been researching Boeing 787 and found some pretty freaky information.

I read that the planes are prone to windshield cracks, battery malfunctions and read about something with fires.

I also read that if they get struck by lightning as they aren't made out of the correct lightning defective material.

They have been fixing 40 planes that have had hairline cracks in the wings? I am going to be on this flight for 9 hours.

I am freaking out!

Instructor kills my passion and dream to be a pilot

Real Life Flight Instructor Career

Hi Captain Lim,

First of all I would like to thank you for this amazing website. It has given me lots of information about flying. I bought your book Life in the Skies recently and found it really interesting.

I am currently a student pilot in a flying school doing CPL/IR and frozen ATPL course. I am doing flight simulator training for 10 hours on twin engines now. I am finding it tough to learn as my instructor who is a former air force pilot, is giving me a hard time by screaming, shouting, smacking heads, etc.

I am trying my best to learn and focus on my part here but with all that’s happening, it’s really hard for me to concentrate. It kills the passion and my dream to be a pilot.

I would like to know, do pilots in airlines face the same treatment or they are treated more professionally?

I understand the need to motivate students, whether through positive or negative encouragement but is it a necessity for instructors to shout and scream at students who are learning? Or it’s how they are taught in the air force?

I hope you can share your thoughts and opinions on this.

Best regards

Tan
