Flying Cars: Coming soon to a city near you!

Traffic congestion is the curse of modern day transportation. Around the world ever-expanding cities grind to a halt as more and more cars are produced for roads with no space to drive or park them on. How many of us, when stuck in a traffic jam, late for work, a meeting or flight, have wished that we could fly out of that traffic jam and across the sky to our destination? Well that wish may be about to become true very soon. The first self-piloted flying cars will be flying before the end of this year. A plethora of companies such as e-volo, Joby Aviation, Zee.Aero, Aurora Flight Sciences and NASA are all working on various ”passenger drones”, however the most notable is the Airbus ‘Vahana

5 Keys to improve Pilots’ Personal Branding

The world airline industry has gone through a roller-coaster ride over the past decade. Among factors contributing are, the growing demand for air travel, the fierce competition for market share between LCCs and flag carriers and the amount of commercial pilots required to meet a surge in demand. The situation is clear; there is a shortage of trained pilots worldwide, so the number of cadets has rocketed, leaving areas like Europe with a surplus. So, why this contradictory situation? The answer is complex, as there are numerous external factors that affect employable pilots; airlines and regulations, experience requirements, ICAO English Level (+5), age and licence restrictions among others.

Legends Of Aviation: CAPT. SUNIL WETTIMUNY

Few people have the good fortune or talent to have more than one successful career, however we know of footballers who have become TV presenters, supermodels who have become authors and an actor and game show host who have become presidents of the USA. We also have the privilege to know one of the greatest cricketers ever to lift a bat for Sri Lanka, who has also had a distinguished 45 year career as an airline pilot – Capt. Sunil Wettimuny. The highlights of Sunil’s cricketing career were the world cups in 1975 and 1979 held in U.K. in which he was the star batsman of the Sri Lanka national team. He had been playing top class cricket since the late 1960s and had been captain of both the Cey

What Does "America First" Mean For Aviation?

London, UK: Mohammad Tariq Mahmood was travelling to L.A with eleven members of his family in December. They were planning a lovely trip to Disneyland when they were stopped at the airport and refused to get on the plane, apparently with no justified reason. Norwegian Airlines said: "We can confirm that a group of passengers were denied the right to board a flight from London Gatwick to Los Angeles on Tuesday 15 December at the request of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Norwegian fully complies with requests from the border controls of each country we serve." American, Delta and United airlines also comply with Trump's decision to ban citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan

This is your Captain Speaking: Success for Female Pilots 在中国的成功女飞行员们

When was the last time that you heard “this is your captain speaking” from a female voice? The reason you’re racking your brains is because there really aren’t that many female pilots. Estimates from the International Society of Women Airline Pilots (ISA) say there are about 4,000 women pilots worldwide, of about 130,000, that’s just over three per cent. 还记得当飞机起飞时,最后一次听到女机长的航线播报是在什么时候吗?是否还在思考是否曾经有过这样的经历呢?你会思考这个问题的原因是全球女性飞行员的数量屈指可数。据国际社会女性飞行员组织机构统计报道,全球130,000飞行员中约有4000女飞行员,占飞行员比率的3%。 However, in the past ten years since 2000, the number of women pilots in the U.S. has risen by nearly 19%. And the number of women who have achieved the highest certification, Airline Transport Pilot, has incre

2017: Positive Outlook for The Airline Industry

The airlines are likely to experience a strong growth in 2017, following multiple years of positive rise in passenger travel demand driven by wealth creation in Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Continue Strong Profits According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA)’s report, the industry is forecasted to reach total revenues of $736 billion and generate a net profit of $29.8 billion in 2017, that represents at 4.1% net profit margin. It maintains the third straight year of consecutive profits. On the other hand, the outlook for 2016 airline industry profitability was $35.6 billion, which was to be the highest profit made by the airline sector and strongest net profit margin

Commercial and Space Flight must Co-exist

With the technology for commercial space travel getting ever closer to becoming a reality, the aviation and aerospace industry must make some crucial decisions to plan and execute a complementary industry that will not be a hindrance to the other. As there is currently such a large demand for pilots and engineers for commercial airlines, how will the space industry affect that ever growing demand on the specialised skills of both pilots and engineers? The dawn of a space race is upon us, geared to develop new spaceplanes designed to take tourists into space by highly ambitious Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) from international companies such as Virgin Galactic, EADS Astrium, Orbital

Pilots’ life - full of passion in the sky

Otto Lilienthal- the 19th century ‘flying man’ stated: “One can get a proper insight into the practice of flying only by actual flying experiments. The manner, in which we have to meet the irregularities of the wind, when soaring in the air, can only be learnt by being in the air itself. The only way which leads us to a quick development in human flight is a systematic and energetic practice in actual flying experiments”. The pilot job is challenging but is extremely worthy to compass. What is the most fun part of pilot job? When being asked about this, our Captain Mike reveals: “The most fun part of my job is the flying, without question. From the moment the cockpit door is closed until whe
