27 Hours Without Electricity – Insights of HMA

Living with no electricity might not be as easy as you may think and you not realise how many items in your hostel rely on it to function. It was on Wednesday 28th of November. Around 2.30pm we had a electricity cut and that time  our classes were going on as usual. I still remember that it was instrumentation class. Our instructor thought that the power cut would be for a few minutes and we would be able to resume our studies later on. But the time went from 30 minutes to 1 hour and felt like forever. All of

Modern Jet Aircraft Cabin Pressurization Basics

High Speed or the modern aircraft’s are efficient and fuel saving at high altitudes.In order to take advantage of these properties the interior of an aircraft flying at high altitude is pressurized to allow passengers and crew to function normally without the need for additional oxygen. Insufficient O2,( Hypoxia) will give a negative effect to a overall human performance such as nausea, lack of concentration, vomiting, & etc. Up to an altitude of 10000 ft (3.3 km), the air pressure and consequently the amount of oxygen is sufficient for humans to operate without too many problems. However, lack of oxygen

Why The Airflow Has A Greater Velocity At The Upper Surface Of An Aerofoil?

Whenever we ask someone how an aircraft produces lift they are able to answer based on Bernoulli Principle(BP); the airflow above the aerofoil has a higher velocity whereas the airflow on the lower surface of the aerofoil has a lower velocity. Based on BP the higher the velocity the lower the pressure therefore the difference in air pressure produces lift. When a follow-up question is asked why the airflow on the upper surface is great, a majority of us are unable to answer. So today I will be splitting on Why & How the airflow has a greater velocity on

Island Hopping 67’s

21st July 2018 – As a new batch it was not easy to get along with everyone as all the cadets here are not of the same age group as you. Though, we slowly tried to get used to the environment and the daily tight and packed schedules. Classes here start at 0800 and ends at 1700. After a week of hustle here, abang Ismail arranged a team bonding trip for us. It was island hopping. So on the D-day we got up in the morning around 9, had our breakfast at Bella Vista and we left to a place

The rooms were really comfy with air conditioned

Delay of Reporting Date To Flying School

We were told by the admin that all the cadets for my intake will receive their offer letter as soon as the May intake cadets have reported to flying school. Sadly two weeks has passed by and we received a news from Air Asia HR representative saying that our intake has been delayed till another two weeks time.
