Have you heard of this Flight Training Consulting Agency?
Written by Capt Lim

Aviator College Ft Pierce Florida
 
Hello Capt. Lim,

I am interested in becoming an airline pilot but all the current problems with job opportunities have got me looking for a more secured way to get into the job market rather than getting an ATPL by my own means. I mainly have two questions:

1. Have you ever heard of Aerocadet? Apparently they are "a consulting agency contracted by large flight training facilities, such as Aviator College of Aeronautical Science and Technology, in order to provide consulting to prospective students and process their enrolment paperwork, conduct enrolment interview, organize financial aid, etc.

These services are FREE for the prospective students, as we are remunerated by the flight training centres." in the very words of their Int. Aviation Training Consultant.

They have a program that trains students with 0 flight experience to a FULL ATPL in about 2 years and from a cost of about 50k USD onward in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Do you think this is a legitimate program/company? It seems too good to be true to me. Also there is very little news or press about Aerocadet..

2. What is your professional and personal opinion about the chances of being hired by an airline now if one has just graduated but has a full ATPL? Would it give a large upper hand to said pilot in terms of job eligibility?

Thank you very much for your time sir. I apologize for the long message and have a good day!

Plane trembled then dropped!

Use of Spoilers

Hi Captain Lim,

I stumbled upon your site recently and I am very thankful for the service you're doing for the flying public.

Anyway, a few years ago, I was on a Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong to Rome. We were on (or near) the decent phase of the flight when the plane started to vibrate/tremble/shudder.

I can compare the feeling to a car engine that's having trouble starting or staying turned on.

Right after, the plane suddenly dropped to its left side for around two seconds.

This happened another time before we landed in Rome.

From what I remember, the weather outside was pretty fair, with a few clouds scattered about.

What do you think could be the cause of this?

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thanks!

Fear of Flying help video by Virgin Flying Without Fear Team

Hi Capt Lim,

I have such a severe fear of flying. Even when I hear the word airplane I get nervous.

I need to fly really soon and I was wondering if you have any tips?

Nothing online seems to be working. The noises that the plane makes also play a big role in my fear.

Please help!

Thanks

What is the effect if an airplane remains stationary in the sky as the earth rotates?

Simple Earth Rotation
 
Hi Capt Lim,

I was so interested and really enjoyed reading Life In The Skies. I learned a lot from this book and some of my questions have all been answered in the book.

I recommended this book to my friends and they also felt that it is more wonderful than the Hong Kong's drama Triumph in the Skies.

We need your help to answer two questions that we always are curious about:-

1. What is the effect if an airplane remains stationary in the sky as the earth rotates on its axis?

2. Does a FLY fly faster than a flying aircraft in the cabin?

I always thought that it would hit the back of the plane if it is slower than a flying aircraft.
