Supersonic Travel: The Race Has Begun Again

“Later, I realized that the mission had to end in a let-down because the real barrier wasn't in the sky but in our knowledge and experience of supersonic flight” - Charles ‘Chuck’ Yeager. It’s been almost 70 years since Chuck Yeager broke in the Bell X-1 ‘’Glamorous Glennis’’ what was thought to be the impossible for the human kind; the sound barrier. Although his words after this glorious flight expressed his concerns with our lack of understanding and experience of supersonic flight, it cannot be denied this breakthrough opened a new chapter in the aviation industry and generated numerous expectations for military and commercial operations. Two decades of development passed and in March 1

Legends of Aviation: #1. Capt. Manuel Tamayo

Ever since the Wright brothers first took to the sky, the job of a pilot has been one that people the world over have envied and respected in equal measure. However, to have a successful career as a pilot requires an enormous amount of commitment and dedication to the profession. In this, the first of our series "Legends of Aviation", we pay tribute to a man who through his outstanding professionalism has inspired generations of pilots and gained worldwide admiration throughout the industry: Capt. Manuel "Skee" Tamayo. Following a distinguished career in the Philippines Air Force/ Armed Forces, which he concluded as Chief of Intelligence for the Presidential Security Group, Capt. Tamayo join

Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

It is always hard to judge a good book by its cover, but even more difficult to judge a country from a trailer. For those who haven't seen this "mockumentary", it tells the story of Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen), a Kazak Journalist who's prime objective is to learn from Americans how to improve society in his home town. Borat creates different life scenarios where he patronizes the Kazak culture making them appear ignorant and uneducated. I've recently visited Almaty, the second biggest city in Kazakhstan (even my mother was against the idea), however I am very privileged to represent Brookfield Aviation with our client in Almaty, Qazaq Air. The flight from London wasn't too bad. Air Astana has

A New Career In The Land Of The Rising Sun

Japan is one of the most amazing, beautiful, and safe countries in the world. From Mount Fuji to bustling Tokyo to zen-like Kyoto, Japan is a high-tech world mixed with the politeness and respect of their past. Although the territory of Japan is small and it is elongated in the north-south direction. The climate of Japan has vibrant four seasons, each season has a clear feature. Spring is to experience the beautiful cherry blossom. There is a lot of rain in the summer and it is very humid but filled with life. Like spring, autumn is comfortable and stable; everything turns to crimson and gold. The winter in Japan is cold, snowy, and silent. People come to Japan and feel very comfortable duri

Making a Stronger Global Community

Since the induction in 1859 of schools for flight throughout the United Kingdom, these schools were setup to protect the UK from attacks from overseas. Since the start of this training of cadets to protect the shores of the UK, there has been an opportunity for the youth of Britain to gain valuable life skills and the experience of flight. Today’s RAF Air Cadets are made up of more than 40,000 members between the ages of 12 and 20. The organisation is sponsored by the Royal Air Force and challenges young boys and girls to develop themselves into productive adults within their future career. D A McCafferty, Commandant ACO explains “the very essence of the air cadet experience is enabling you

Would You Like To Work In Paradise?

The Turks and Caicos Islands are known as one of the world’s longest coral reefs and more than 230 miles of white-sand beaches in the Caribbean region.

Points of View from Teenage Passengers

To be successful, every politician needs to listen to his constituents. Businessmen must know what their customers want. Billions of dollars are spent on market research every year. Airlines are no exception; the analysis of the profitability of routes is probably only second to safety as the airline's priority. However it is interesting to hear the points of view of some young passengers, their perception of what a pilot does and how an aircraft flies, and why have there always been some people with a fear of flying. Here are a couple of edited opinions of 16 year olds, who may be the sought after business class passengers of the future: “Things I don’t understand about flying: Personally,
