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.

Cheers,

Calvin.
 
What factors lead a plane to crash and not glide?

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.

How high should a plane fly? Captain Lim Khoy Hing explains optimum cruising altitudes.


Image: Travel 3Sixty
All planes generally have a preferred cruising altitude, and frequent flyers will notice this when their captain makes an inflight announcement, or when this information is displayed on the video screens.

The cruising level is normally chosen for economical reasons, as a higher altitude is favoured because the thinner air allows a plane to cruise more easily and thereby, burn less fuel. This is dependent on the weight of the aircraft – the lighter the plane, the higher it can go. Therefore, an aircraft may start cruising at 33,000ft and eventually end up at 41,000ft closer to its destination when more fuel has been consumed.
