A380 taking off at JFK at night (Tail View)

Hello Capt Lim,

I wanted to contact you because I am terribly afraid of flying at night because I cannot see what is happening outside while flying and that makes me really nervous.

Please help me. I wish to know how safe is it to fly at night?


Salary difference between Diploma and Degree holder

Pilots Salaries – (Becoming a pilot)

Dear Capt Lim,

I am unsure whether I should take a Degree or just go into piloting with a Diploma. My peers have been telling me that the pay difference between a Diploma and a Degree holder is quite a lot.

Can I have some advice on what I should do?

If the pay difference is by a small margin, then I wouldn't mind getting less because all I want to do in life is be a pilot.

Air Turbulence and Thunderstorms over the Ocean

Avoiding massive thunderstorm clouds

Hi Captain Lim,

I've been a reader of your site and information here. It helps me to deal with my fear for air travel. I'm very thankful to you and your site.

I am traveling to Melbourne, Australia from Shanghai, China by Qantas in a few weeks’ time.

1. Have you flown via this route?
2. Do you have any idea how the aerial/weather condition is normally like on this route?
3. Is there usually heavy turbulence?
4. What are the chances of thunderstorms?

I apologise if the questions sound strange but I am for some reason under the impression that thunderstorms happen more often flying over oceans, especially the Atlantic Ocean.

Your articles have been very informative about the impact of turbulence/thunderstorms and how they are usually dealt with or avoided. I understand that with modern technology pilots are constantly updated with the weather condition ahead, but are there chances for the sudden encounter of unpredictable severe conditions, meaning they can't possibly be avoided?

Thank you and best regards!

Would inflating lifejackets inside cabin improve chances of survival in a crash landing?

The hijack and crash of Ethopia Flight 961

Hi Capt Lim,

In the unlikely event of a passenger aircraft having to make an emergency crash landing, would putting on and then inflating the life-jacket under your seat increase a passenger’s chances of surviving the impact of the crash?

Cathay Pacific Second Officers Recruitment - Please help!

Cathay Pacific Airways

Hello Captain,

Hope you and family are doing great. The first time I visited your website, I was quite fascinated with the amount of information available and the best things are your answers. Since then, I have finished my CPL training and if I had some questions on anything to do with aviation I would search it here... Thank you very much Sir.

My question - my friend was telling me that in Cathay, the progression of a pilot is pretty slow and the Second Officer recruitment has started. If you get selected, the hours that you fly in the beginning of your CX life - you cannot log them. I wanted to ask you whether that's true.

Also, will it take me a long time to jump to the First Officer or Captain’s position in Cathay?

Waiting for your early and positive response

(Please help me Sir; I have been job hunting for 14+ months now)
