The MH 370 and MH 17 tragedies obviously haven’t helped my fears of flying
Written by Capt Lim

Malaysia Airlines MH17 shot down

Hi Capt Lim,

My parents have booked us up for Orlando next summer from Gatwick. What they don't realise is that I have an awful fear of flying.

Every time I think about the possibility of the plane crashing or a terrorist being on board I just get into a panic and tell myself that I'm never going to step on a plane.

The recent missing Malaysian plane and the one that had just crashed on the Russia/Ukraine border obviously haven’t helped my fears. The thought of everyone panicking on the plane including my family and knowing that we're all likely to die if something happened is horrible and sends my mind racing with fear and horrible thoughts.

I've only been on a plane twice and that was when I was too young to be fearful. I'm not actually worried about things like turbulence, but as I've already mentioned, I am fearful of the plane crashing, either due to or not due to a terrorist incident.

I realise that I am going to have to get on the plane for the sake of my family but the thought of it fills me with fear when really I should be looking forward to it.

Are there any words of advice or encouragement you can give me to reassure me and maybe alleviate my fears?

Would Gatwick to Orlando be considered a high risk flight?

Hi Captain Lim,

I am flying from Toronto to London and I was wondering how planes are kept in contact with the air traffic controllers once over the Atlantic Ocean.

Thank you.

How to unfreeze an ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot Licence)?

The Great Airline Pilot Shortage Myth (Part I)

Hello Captain,

After getting a frozen ATPL, where can a pilot accumulate 1500 flying hours and how long will it take approximately to unfreeze the licence?

Which Flying Academy would you recommend?

Malaysian Flying Academy - Our Women Of The Skies
Hi Captain Lim,

I am a Malaysian female and I really want to get into those major airlines and work as a pilot. However, I understand there is a long and tough way to go. I am going to graduate with my Science Degree in 2015.

I am thinking of getting a CPL with my own money because there is no cadet program available for Malaysians. I have limited funds for the entire course which is around USD100k?

I am just wondering which one is the best flight school on your mind.

a. Integrated ATPL program with CAE Oxford Aviation Academy in Phoenix, USA.
b. Aerocadet full ATPL program with Aviator College in Florida, USA
c. CPL(certificate IV in aviation) Basair Aviation College in NSW, Australia

Or any other alternative options you would recommend to me?

Your advice is greatly appreciated! Hope to hear back from you soon.

Thank you Captain Lim!
