Tony Fernandes Launches SKY TALES
Written by Capt Lim

SKY TALES
 was launched by Tony Fernandes

SKY TALES
was launched by Tony Fernandes, Group CEO of AirAsia on 7th October 2017 at Fahrenheit 88 Mall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of AirAsia's inflight magazine, 'travel 3Sixty'.

Tony said, “We consider ourselves to be a dream factory where people are encouraged to pursue their passion. We have always motivated all Allstars (AirAsia staff) to dare to dream and never say no for an answer. Who says you can't be a pilot and a writer at the same time? I am proud that we have two incredible captains under our wings that have done exactly this; to not only achieve their dreams of publishing books, but to inspire others."

The books titled 'SKY TALES : More Insights from a Life in the Skies' and 'Iron Bird Monika'.

Captain Lim's book provides a collection of tips, anecdotes and insights into his distinguished flying career penned down in an entertaining and enlightening style.

On the other hand, Iron Bird Monika depicts a tale of courage and willpower that follows the remarkable journey of Captain Monika in becoming a female captain.

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.

 
Passage To Hawaii

As AirAsia X commenced flights to Hawaii in June, I feel this milestone warrants a deviation from my usual stories revolving around the technical know-how of flying, and a closer look at some of the preparations involved in launching this exotic destination.

In February, AirAsia X announced four weekly flights to Hawaii from Malaysia, via Japan. Travel time on the Airbus A330 aircraft is approximately seven hours for the first leg of the journey to Japan, then an additional eight and a half hours to Hawaii. Guests will be pleased to know that they do not require a Japanese visa for the two-hour stopover in Osaka.

With the introduction of this exciting destination, AirAsia X has successfully connected Asia with the US, bringing quality low-cost long-haul travel to the masses.

 
Defy the authority of a Captain or risk an accident?

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.
