5 things a pilot will never tell you

we found out some things they will never tell you but you need to know.


Travelling by air may not be attractive during these times but rest assured your safety is the utmost concern of your pilots.

But these are 5 things a pilot knows and you should too before travelling by air. 


Thunderstorms are more likely to occur in the afternoon which could cause a mild panic attack especially if it’s your first time travelling.  

Turbulences are just annoying, it’s flying into a massive updraft which could cause a crash. Updrafts are difficult to see at night and flying into one is like hitting a giant speed bump at 500 miles an hour. It throws everything up and down in the air very violently. Turbulences just bounces everyone around for a while. 


The waves could interfere with the aeroplane controls and affect readings. One plot talks about how placing calls right before landing can cause a false reading making him think they are higher than they are. It might also be difficult to hear when there’s an emergency if everyone is busily using their phones. Or worse get hit by a playing laptop going 200 miles per hour.


Their work rules allow them to be on a duty for 16 hours straight. That’s quite a long period without a break. And sometimes they are not well rested for a flight as expected because of horrible hospitality conditions at the hotels they put them in. Even lunch breaks are a struggle and they may have to delay a flight just to catch a meal.
