God bless our hustle, the thing is I don't ply my trade in naija aviation industry so I don't have any contacts at in that department...

Hmmmnnn,No wonder. I have sent you a pm long before u created this thread, and I have been expecting your response. Pls kindly reach me on firstname.lastname@example.org or 08071664665 (whatsapp) .how is work sir?
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by lindaayim(f): 1:58am On May 27, 2016|
do aeroplane have heaters? cos i know they have air-conditioners.
in the cockpit, do you see other plane flying especially in crowded route and wave at other pilots
how do you eat and shit for long flights
can a plane stay still in air? i mean still while airborne no movements?
why don't planes reverse? they have tow trucks push them backwards off gate
is taking off more challenging than landing?
can drinking and flying (flying under influence affect how you operate the plane? and how do they know? (i mean the police)
can you dose off and fly past your destination airport? like driving past busstop?
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 7:32am On May 27, 2016|
This has got to be the funniest question yet
1. Some times we see other planes while flying but we can't wave at them because each aircraft would separated by a certain distance but vertically and horizontally to avoid stories that touch.
2. No it can't stay still in the air.
3 . planes Jet engines can't reverse cos they don't have auto transmission like cars but propeller aircraft can reverse, sort of.
4. Landing is more challenging than taking off.
5. There's what we call the eight hour rule, pilots and crew are not allowed to drink alcohol eight hours before your flight. The airline I work for tests us before when we report for duty. Of course it can affect how the pilot operates the plane so necessary checks are in place.
6. No we can't fly past our "bus stop" because there are mechanisms in place to avoid that. The plane is programmed to fly from point a to point b and will only change if to point c if there is an emergency.
7. The pilots never eat the same meals for safety reasons and we have restrooms close to the cockpit where we can poo if the need arises.

Are there any flight schools abroad that are cheaper than the ones we have in Nigeria.
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by lindaayim(f): 12:20am On May 28, 2016|
saw a guy standing far off with an orange like lamp while the aircraft was been towed backward (reverse) from the gate the guy seemed to be directing the pilot but saw no side mirror in the cockpit. what is the job of the guy?
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 7:36am On May 28, 2016|
Usually to direct the pilot to or from the gate.
If he wasn't in the line of sight, then he was been seen via camera.
We don't need side mirrors because the push back truck positions the aircraft into a position we can taxi to the runway
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 7:37am On May 28, 2016|
Probably in eastern Europe...
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Nobody: 8:35am On May 28, 2016|
Boeing777pilot:good morning boss, I had lots of passion for aviation and I was opportuned to have little knowledge about the aviation industry through a late uncle who worked at the airport. Had a training in ticketing but my passion is either piloting or aeronautical engineering training . Please how can I reach you sir? Thanks
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Originalsly: 2:54pm On May 29, 2016|
Curious...have you ever been in an emergency situation?.....what if the landing gear/wheels fail to set up for landing ... what are the options?...lastly... those people sitting in Exit rows that promise to help others in case of emergency... do you guys really believe they would?
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by sylva1: 3:26pm On May 29, 2016|
Why do aeroplanes sometimes overshoot their runways when landing. Is it that the pilot did not calculate adequately before landing or the traffic controller did not do his job well?
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by phibetakappa: 8:01pm On May 29, 2016|
1.Do aeroplanes have ignition keys like cars?
2. What does it mean when a pilot says he's performing a stall test?
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by MrCow(m): 8:18pm On May 29, 2016|
what is the function of an Helipad since all helicopters can land of any free space
how does hanger differs from airports
the plane has two handles,
what if the pilot moves it to the left and the co pilot moves his to the right like in the case of hijack ( what will be the outcome)
why must the pilot and copilot pull the gear together, is it heavy
thanks in advance, I salute You Sir
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Nobody: 4:34pm On May 30, 2016|
wow the fact I Neva see this thread since day pain me na DAT thread wen rdv day I day follow I hope to fly a helicopter some day sha for a coy like bristow or areo Buh I wanna get a degree first
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Nobody: 5:48pm On May 30, 2016|
Wow. A friend got Me an add-on pack for my Sim today.. And am amazed at its detailed.. From start up to takeoff and Landing... For flight enthusiasts by just knowing the basics of flying. I recommend you practice using a Sim first. Remember when I was interviewed by Bristow. They clearly asked if I have tried using a Sim before. And how many hours practiced on it.
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Nobody: 5:58pm On May 30, 2016|
igwemoagbo:how much for the complete set up
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Nobody: 6:00pm On May 30, 2016|
@boeing777pilot is ur flight simulation added to flying hours?
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Olisa4all: 6:24pm On May 30, 2016|
I don't think this is true, no pilot wants to fly in bad weather, it certainly wasn't part of my own training to wait for bad weather.
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Olisa4all: 6:27pm On May 30, 2016|
Cos Helicopter Pilots are BOSSES!
We whip the air into submission.... Lol
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Olisa4all: 6:36pm On May 30, 2016|
The fact that Helicopters can land anywhere doesn't mean they can land in free space sir, only witches and wizards can do that.
"The Helipad/Helideck is a landing deck for helicopters on ships, oil platforms, buildings, etc"

Olisa4all:what are u type rated on nd where do u fly ng?
|Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 2:08am On May 31, 2016|
During our time in the simulators, we practice alot of emergency scenarios that's is exactly like a real life situation. This prepares us for any eventuality.
If the landing gears don't deploy, we information ATC about what's up, we circle round the airport so dump fuel to reduce possibility of fires, brief the pax about the situation and get them into brace position, line up with runway and do belly landing and deploy the spoilers once we hit the runway.
