Bosses generally get their way while subordinates merely nod, agree and walk away. Not so in the airline industry. When lives are at stake, not only are co-pilots trained to speak up, they can also wrest control and land the aircraft safely. Capt. Lim Khoy Hing explains why it is NOT insubordination when this situation arises in the cockpit.
A pilot has a lot on his plate when he steps into the cockpit to get ready for a flight. It’s quite different compared to what a motorist faces when inside a car. As the pilot is responsible for so many lives in a very expensive flying machine, he is also one of the most checked, evaluated and tested individuals on earth.
