A rude pilot who claims he doesn't speak English!

Tips to get ICAO Level 4, 5 and 6 English

Hi Captain Lim,

I would like to ask you about pilot manners.

I met a pilot just now in an airport hotel, he's a captain. When I asked him if I could take a photo with him, he answered, “I don’t speak English!” and he just walked away.

Is that how a pilot would react to people?

Changing my career from sailing to piloting…

From Air Stewardess to Pilot

Hi Captain,

I've read your book "Life in the Skies" and it really inspired me to pursue my dreams. I have always wanted to be a pilot since at a very young age. I'm 24 years old this year.

Currently I am working as a Navigating Officer (3rd Officer) under MISC which transports LNG.

Are there any possibilities if I take up piloting? Is it too late to build up my piloting career?

I have a Diploma in Nautical Studies. Can I apply for cadetship program with my Diploma or still require my SPM certificate? Is it possible to get a sponsorship?

I really hope to hear from you and that you could guide me, Captain Lim.

Sincerely,

Christie
 
Does a jet aircraft need to constantly adjust nose down to follow the curvature of the earth?

Planet Earth seen from Space
 
Dear Capt Lim;

I have limited flying experience (two introductory flight lessons in a Cessna and several commercial flights, including some Transatlantic trips), so please excuse my ignorance.

I was wondering; since the earth is spherical and the curvature is approximately 6 foot "drop" for every three miles i.e. a 6 foot person will disappear over the horizon 3 miles away, does a jet aircraft need to be constantly adjusted nose down to adjust for the curvature of the earth?

In other words, if a plane was trimmed for straight and level flight, would it "gain altitude" while flying as the earth surface "fell away" due to the curvature?

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Are twin turboprop engines as safe as twin jet engines planes?

TransAsia Airways ATR 72 Crash

Hi Capt Lim,

Are twin turboprop engines planes as safe as twin jet engines planes? Why is a loss of one turboprop engine resulted in an air crash?

Can we assume that a turboprop engine doesn’t have surplus power as much as jet engines aircraft?

Becoming a Pilot - The Inside Story

Hello there Captain!

It is nice to have the opportunity to send you an email! Well, I think I should introduce myself. I'm Glenn Gerald, currently 15 years old and I am from Sabah.

I bought your book 'Life in the Skies!' last December (2014) on my connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur to Vietnam and it was a fun and knowledgeable book for me. But sadly, I couldn't get your signature  However, on my flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu I met two of the flight's First Officers and I was able to get their signatures.

Captain, if possible, I would like to meet you one day as it is one of my dreams to meet the one who inspired me the most  

I still remember the part of your flight from Shanghai to Kuala Lumpur on the Boeing 777. You cancelled your flight that day because of the typhoon!

You know? That story really touches my heart. I should be like you to think about other's safety especially the words, “when a doctor makes a mistake, only one patient dies, while a pilot’s mistake would impact the lives of hundreds.” I really love all of your words!

Captain, I am on my way to take my PT3 this year. For my next year's subject, I need to choose my subjects for my future.

Can I ask you Captain? What are the main subjects that I should take to be a pilot?

Sorry if I disturb you for a moment. Your reply will be much appreciated!

Sincerely,

GLENN GERALD
