|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 12:22am On Feb 27, 2018|
Hi all, happy new year to you all.
My apologies for my prolonged absence.
I had an accident (not aviation related) coupled with a long recuperation period and I am unable to continue flying again. Ever.
From time to time I'd pop in to answer questions
|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 2:43am On Jan 21, 2017|
Happy New year family.
Sorry I have been extremely busy with work that explains my prolonged absence here.
|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 2:42am On Jan 21, 2017|
I'm by no means an emotional person but this left eyes in my eyes.
This is very very very deep.
Anyone who is not an aviator wouldn't probably understand this.

CFCman:Lets say 4 B777 for every 1 A380 bought
|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 2:18am On Dec 02, 2016|
The last two lines are like music to my ears. The A380 is becoming a pain in the a.ss of airlines so they prefer the twin engine long range jets that makes more economic sense.

Hopefully, all the cultists should kill themselves off. They would be doing the world a great favor since they don't want to repent.

Captain ko Driver ni
That's one idiot less to worry about
And for people of his kind here on naira land who don't want to renounce cultism, I guess will be reading about yours too very soon on here too.
Just look at their comments on face book and some foolish cultists are already showing up here. They aren't even ashamed.
They should all kill themselves and the world will be better off without their kind.

It's well sha.
Looking back, Arik turning me down several years ago is now a great blessing to me.

Concerning N4252G, it's difficult to tell what caused the crash because the media doesn't have all the information and at best speculate. It's just the NTSB that can authoritatively say what caused the crash.
|Celebrities / Re: Davido Signs J Ice To DMW As Both Fly Private Jet (pics,vid) by Boeing777pilot: 6:27pm On Oct 21, 2016|
This particular private jet used to belong to the Nigerian police force. It's former registration number was 5N-NPF.
I wonder who the new owners are.

*deep sigh *
Unless you are a pilot or an av geek, you will not understand the deep bond that pilots share irrespective of their location or equipment they operate. It's beyond looking out for each other but I will not seat back and allow you wrongfully assert that white pilots are better than black pilot simply because you had a smoother flight with a white pilots at the controls.
Thankfully, I don't watch crash investigation and I have been been a pilot for several years now by the grace of God but it's category one fallacy to say that pilots are error prone except you don't know what the word prone means.

|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 12:32pm On Oct 18, 2016|
Comments like this that's why an expatriate first officer in arik or aero will think that he's more better than his captain.
Those metrics are not enough to say one pilot is better than the other. You have no idea about what the flight conditions as at the time of flight.
It takes blood sweat and tears to become a pilot and what essentially differentiates us is the hours we have flown but that does not make one pilot better than the other.
|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 11:12am On Oct 18, 2016|
Those comments are not fair on female pilots
I actually prefer flying with female captains in our Boeing777 fleet they are some of the best. We go through the same rigorous training and nothing separates us in terms of competency.
I see you have apologized though.
Go and sin no more.

Go talk to your pastor.

|Travel / Re: A Must Read, What He Goes Through In Italy (HELP) by Boeing777pilot: 5:47am On Oct 06, 2016|
OP, I have read your story several times and I don't have any iota of sympathy for you or your brother.
Why? He didn't have a gun to his head when he made the decision to go to Italy. He obviously knew that the grass was not greener on the other side despite all the story that he heard, yet your family did nothing to stop himy.
The money he used to get to Italy would be more than enough to start a business in Nigeria or take him through University. At 19, this is someone that should probably be in school or learning a trade.
The fact he's still alive is a testimony so my advice, let him locate the Nigerian embassy and have himself returned to Nigeria.

The most important thing is that he died.
|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 9:19am On Oct 02, 2016|
It's very likely that the engines or other aircraft parts are emitting a frequency that human ears can't pick up but are very audible to the dogs and it's probably irritating to them.
|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 2:33pm On Sep 30, 2016|
|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 4:32pm On Sep 22, 2016|
2. Yes it's true.
3. Yes, the engines can go at full power without taxiing but no sane pilot does that
4A. Yes it has a very similar chemical formula with kerosene but some things are added to prevent sharp guys from selling it as kerosene
4B. Dunno oh
4C. Engine and fuel tank design and other minor mechanisms prevent that from happening.
|Travel / Re: Ask A Pilot... by Boeing777pilot: 4:18pm On Sep 22, 2016|
Skipper, see the way you just pass the baton sharply. Dia is God oh.

It seems you are having a slow day at work so you decided to post this.
This topic has already been addressed on fp before but knowing that pastor Chris will always increase page views, you brought it up again.
Well done oh!!!

Bros, the truth is Nigeria should send people to Ethiopia to go and under study Ethiopian airlines for one year then return to replicate same in Nigeria else we would be pouring water in a basket. I mentioned this to uncle Jona once and he just tapped my shoulder and smiled.

You can check out ATR turbo props. It's cheaper than the dash series.
