Our very first Boeing 737 MAX 9 has entered commercial service. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Itโ€™s on itโ€™s way now from Dubai DXB ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช to Zanzibar and Dar Es Salaam as FZ687. ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฟ I drove out to DWC airport yesterday to get a few pics as she was doing circuits. The winter skies in Dubai were really clear. No dust, no sand and clear skies. Perfect for some photoโ€™s. ๐Ÿ“ธ I must admit I like the proportions of the longer 737 better.

[VIDEO ๐Ÿ“น] Goodbye A380. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ Youโ€™re magic to ride in. But bumpy as h*ll to be behind. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚ Came back as a passenger and spotted this #emirates #a380 below us. Sheโ€™s a massive โœˆ๏ธ but tiny compared to those clouds โ˜๏ธ! Pretty cool eh? #instasize #4pilots #aviationtopia #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #megaplane #instapilot #megaaviation #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #megavideo #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #airbuslovers #airbus #emirates #a380 #pilotgopro #airbus #runway #megaplane #airbusa380 #instapilot #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

When your brand new toy flies straight over your elderly house on delivery ๐Ÿ“ฆ from the factory. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ Our first 737 MAX 9 is home ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช and currently doing circuits also. Weโ€™re in the process of getting Autoland approval so we have to prove to the regulators that we have the right procedures and training in place before we are granted approval. Also managed to snap a ๐Ÿ“ธ of this quite rare Libyan airlines A330 in Jeddah ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ this morning. #instasize #4pilots #aviationtopia #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #megaplane #instapilot #megaaviation #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #737max #737max9 #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #pilotgopro #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #instapilot #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

Paperless flightdeck? Yeah right. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Noโœˆ๏ธ moves without lots of paperwork and signatures. Fortunately we have come a long way in reducing the amount of paper consumed but there is still a long way to go. Itโ€™s 0130 AM and Iโ€™m with @nngwato in Krasnodar, Russia๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ on a night turnaround. All manuals and charts are digital nowadays. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ However we still have a paper; Flightplan (x4) Aircraft Technical Logbook, Fuel Slip (x2), Load Sheet (x2 or x3), Loading Instruction Report (x2), De-Ice forms (x3) and a Security Form (x2) to deal with. All requiring; PIC signatures (some x2 or x3), multiple copies here and there and all checked and cross checked between the crew themselfs and the Dispatcher handling our flight. As long as you know what your doing, stick to your Standard Operating Procedures (SOPโ€™s) and keep the same routine/flow then there is light at the end of the tunnel. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Honestly. โœ… Now a quick De-Ice โ„๏ธ and weโ€™re off.

Two Dutch ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ guys going to Baghdad, Iraq ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ถ. A really pleasant flight. ๐Ÿ˜ Despite it taking 53 minutes to get airborne from Baghdad due to a landing aircraft hitting a few cats on the runway. That needed to be cleaned up and the runway inspected first before anything was allowed to move. Several holding aircraft got priority as we patiently waited our turn. Despite leaving the gate 10 minutes early we werenโ€™t excessively late into Dubai ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช in the end. You canโ€™t win them all I guess... #instasize #4pilots #aviationtopia #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #megaplane #instapilot #megaaviation #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #pilotgopro #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #instapilot #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

A truly beautiful day in Yerevan, Armenia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ. Right behind us the famous Mount Ararat. Itโ€™s a dormant vulcano in the eastern corner of Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท that is believed to contain Noahโ€™s Ark. The big peak is also the highest mountain in Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท at 5,137m. I managed to do a lovely visual approach in the valley too. One of the reasons I love coming here. On a clear winters day it has one of the most impressive approaches in our ๐Ÿ’ฏ+ network. We took a big load of mushrooms back to Dubai too. The ground staff sure got their workout. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ The Sukhoi Superjet SSJ 100 next to us belongs to Azimuth Airlines. Itโ€™s a Russian ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ start-up carrier that has 8 of these Superjets. #instasize #4pilots #aviationtopia #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #megaplane #instapilot #megaaviation #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #pilotgopro #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #instapilot #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

Flying flydubai โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช Business Class on our 737 MAX 8 to Belgrade, Serbia ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ธ. โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Got a nice breakfast followed by a good 2 hours sleep ๐Ÿ’ค in a proper flat ๐Ÿ›.

What a difference a day can make! Day 1. Belgrade ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ธ. Day 2, Abha ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ. Day 3, Kuwait ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ผ. From +3c with snow on a โœˆ๏ธ MAX 8 to +20 @ 7000 ft up in Abha and ending up in a massive rain ๐ŸŒง shower in Kuwait ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ผ. I love the variety this job gives us. ๐Ÿ˜ #instasize #4pilots #aviationtopia #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #megaplane #instapilot #megaaviation #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #pilotgopro #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #instapilot #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

A pure pilots โœˆ๏ธ watch; @avi_8. This watch is the Hawker Harrier II AV-4056-01 model. Go check โ€˜m out at www.avi-8.co.uk. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Finally had a chance to fly a new 737 MAX 8 again. Such a lovely aircraft. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Š #instasize #4pilots #aviationtopia #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #megaplane #instapilot #megaaviation #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #pilotgopro #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #instapilot #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

Kathmandu is busy! We arrived on schedule but had nowhere to park so we had to hold in the air, as is often the case. Lots of colorful tails here too. A China Eastern 73G, Salaam Air A320, Druk Air A320, Qatar A320, Air India A321 and finally an Etihad A320. Besides the stored Himalayan A320 and Royal Nepal B757. I also had to check the upper side of the wing for frost hence the great ๐Ÿ“ท angle. We picked up some ice due to cold fuel so we again transferred the cold fuel to the center tank and refueled the wings with warm fuel to defrost the ice. Next a slow battle with the headwinds for a 5.5hr trip back to Dubai. ๐Ÿ˜ž I so much prefer tailwinds. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผโœˆ๏ธ Next up today; Abha ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ. #instasize #4pilots #aviationtopia #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #megaplane #instapilot #megaaviation #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #pilotgopro #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #instapilot #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

โœˆ๏ธ number #65 has just left the factory in Seattle ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ and is enroute to Keflafik, Iceland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ธ. Sheโ€™ll then fly to Amman ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ด tomorrow for cabin fittings. You can see her sisters populating the Middle East and beyond. Welcome ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ You can track her progress on FR24 as โ€˜FDB9741โ€™. #instasize #4pilots #aviationtopia #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #megaplane #instapilot #megaaviation #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #pilotgopro #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #instapilot #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost
