When to trust the flight instruments and when to ignore them?
Written by Capt Lim

Air France Flight 447's harrowing end

Hi Captain Lim,

I have read that in an emergency (example, when the plane is stalling), a pilot must always rely on his flight instruments and not on his own instincts. Is this true?

What if it were like in the case of Air France Flight 447? Due to the blocked pitot tubes, the altitude indicators displayed a false drop in altitude, so the pilot, relying on the wrong information, pulled up the plane to a higher altitude. This (added on with other errors) led to the plane stalling and the Airbus crashing. - Source: Air Crash Investigation.

So how can a pilot know when to trust his flight instruments and when to ignore them?

Pilot Report – Flying the Boeing 787

Hello Sir,

I'm a fan of yours and a regular visitor of this site for more than 5 years now. I am planning to book a flight from Singapore to Dubai via Qatar Airways using a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

I don’t know anything about this plane but I have heard a lot about its birth pains and I wanted to know your take on the safety of this plane.

Thank you sir and may you have the grandest day!

Sincerely,

Allan

Monarch Airlines Boeing 757

Dear Captain Lim,

I really enjoy your website, thank you.

I'm very concerned; we've booked flights from London to Verona, Italy and return with Monarch, the low cost airline.

Outward journey aircraft seems fine, but I feel alarmed - return is with the 757. They only have three left in service and they will be retired three weeks after our flight in August.

Should I rebook with British Airways or Easy Jet?

Many thanks and very best wishes to you.

The Future of the Pilot

Trial Pilotless Plane over UK

Dear Capt. Lim,

I recognise that you have a lot of experience and I absolutely believe that you already have thousands flight hour. From your experience we can see that you have ability to see the future of aviation industry especially job as a pilot.

In this modern life, there are a lot of difference and development in aviation, especially the aircraft technology. A lot of company, I believe that they start to develop cockpit less or unmanned aircraft for commercial (airlines).

I wonder, what is your opinion about this? How long does it takes from now, the airlines start to use unmanned aircraft?

And if it does happen (and I believe it will) then there will be no more job for the pilot. What would it be for the pilot?

I guess that’s my question to you. I hope you can help me out with this.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Thank you,

Shabrina Sanjaya
 
Can I visit the flight deck during the flight?

Boeing 777 taking off – View from the Jump Seat

Dear Captain Lim,

I am a big aviation fan, just read your book and I like the story very much.

I just want to ask, is there any possibility that I can visit the flight deck during a flight?

I don't mind if it’s after flight, best if I can sit at the jump seat during take-off and landing.

Thanks

Regards,

Heng
