Moment Singapore Airlines plane SQ368 catches-fire
Hello Captain Lim,

What do you think of the recent incident in which an SQ plane's engine was leaking fuel?

Are pilots trained for this emergency?

Why didn’t the pilot land at a nearer airport rather than flying back to Singapore?

Saying No to Your Boss (Image: Inmagine Travel 3Sixty)

Hello Sir,

I've heard of this question that I would like your answer on. "You are a First Officer in a cockpit with a Captain flying on an Airbus. Suddenly, an alarm blares and warns that the plane is heading onto a collision course, however the Captain refuses to acknowledge the warning and tells you that the equipment on board is faulty.

As a First Officer, what would you do? Defy the authority of the Captain or risk an accident?"

I look forward to your response.


What factors lead a plane to crash and not glide?

A Transat Airbus A330

Hi Captain Lim,

The information on your website has increased and enhanced my knowledge on aviation significantly.

I got a question I hope you could help solve my doubts.

What are the factors that lead a plane to crash and not glide?

I am a bit confused on 'why plane crash' accidents occur because I thought most planes can glide safely even if the engines are all down?

Thank you.

Call Signs in the Skies

Xanadu 212 – this would be a call sign specifically used by AirAsia X pilots on a flight to a destination in Australia (AirAsia X has designated that flights into Australia begin with the number ‘2’). A call sign is an alphanumeric code that uniquely identifies a carrier, and is used for radio communication between the aircraft and the control tower. Since airlines all over the world use English as the official language of communication, regardless of the native tongue of the pilots and air traffic controllers, all call signs are therefore generally in English.
