It is no exaggeration to say that Captain Lim can almost be compared to the walking Google on the subject of aviation.

His new book, Life in the Skies is comprehensive, well-written and thoroughly-researched to disseminate information on the safety aspects of flying.

If you are someone who has aviophobia or just a pilot wannabe, I assure you that Life in the Skies is a must-read!”

What clinical psychologist Les Posen says about LIFE IN THE SKIES…

Captain Lim has done the world of flying a great service with the publication of his website and now his book. He clearly answers all those questions and more those who enjoy flying have always wanted to ask. But he has performed a special service for those people I work with – fearful flyers – who dearly wish they could enjoy the benefits of commercial aviation if only they better manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Almost all fearful flyers would do well to understand how commercial aviation operates, from its basic safety operations, through to aircraft design and crew training, as well as air traffic control: all those things that come to together to make flying the safe form of public transport it is – only escalators and elevators are safer on a person carried per mile basis.

Over the years, Captain Lim and I have met in person and maintained a knowledge exchange we believe is useful for our respective audiences. For me it’s the 1 in 6 to 1 in 12 of the general population who expresses a significant fear of flying.

I heartily recommend Captain Lim’s book for that population as well as anyone, trainee pilots included, with an interest in commercial aviation from someone with impeccable credentials.

From dispelling common myths about air travel to sharing anecdotes that appeal to the general public and not merely aviation enthusiasts, Captain Lim is clear proof of wisdom that comes with age and experience.

The stories in this book are not just eye-opening; they are reassuring as well, informing readers on air travel issues and how safe it is to fly today.

It has been a privilege to have had Captain Lim fly for AirAsia X and share his in-depth expertise as one of our Training & Standards instructors. With safety and reliability at the centre of our operating model, we have invested in brand new aircraft with latest technology and equip our pilots with rigorous training programs.

However, I personally feel that the best thing we can do to promulgate strong safety practices is to have an open culture where our crew can share their experiences and speak up without fear or favour.

Captain Lim’s enthusiasm in sharing his knowledge reflects this spirit.

Although the statistics will tell you that air travel is one of the safest forms of transportation, what really comforts a traveller is not numbers on a page but relevant and accessible anecdotal explanations to any conceivable topic surrounding the flying experience.

At AirAsia we declare “Now Everyone Can Fly” but after Captain Lim’s Life in the Skies, now there are no more excuses for anyone not to fly!

If you’re someone who equates air travel to getting socked multiple times in the head – scary, painful and potentially life-threatening – Captain Lim is your liberator.

Life in the Skies is the culmination of decades spent in the industry, reading, researching and flying, by him. It is a fascinating, well-researched manual backed with compelling case studies about everything you want to know before you board, or fly, that plane.

Honest and genuine, Captain Lim is an industry veteran who doesn’t try to whitewash the inherent dangers in flying, however minimal, but explains thoroughly the safety mechanisms that can be employed in such scenarios.

Do yourself a favour and read it. Don’t let the fear of flying stop you from crossing things off your bucket list!

 

Allan Koay Journalist, The Star

Can a computer geek who plays flight simulation games help to land a commercial airplane in an emergency? Believe it or not, Captain Lim’s book actually answers that question. This should give you an indication of the tone of this tome.

Yes, air travel safety is serious business, but Captain Lim, with his years of experience and knowledge, provides assurances through fascinating, humorous, sometimes surprising facts, fancies and anecdotes.

I’ve always wondered whether turbulence is dangerous and what really happens if you switch on your mobile phone on a plane. This book answers it all.
