It looks ๐Ÿ‘€ fun down there. And guess where we need to go!?! ๐Ÿ™ˆ Better strap the passengers in early as it looks like it's gonna be a bumpy ride. โ˜๏ธ Luckily ATC was really helpful and gave us a free pass to deviate as necessary. These deviations can be quite busy for us. Many factors keep changing, both internally and externally. Airspeed, vertical speed, heading and altitude changes all need to be coordinated to fly efficient but most important, to fly safe. We make full use of the whole range of automation the 737's Automatic Flight System (AFS) has to offer. Constantly comparing what the aircraft is doing and where it is heading to with what the weather radar is showing us. It can be such a dynamic environment at times. Hence good crew coordination (CRM) and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's) are vital.

Like a kid in a candy shop. ๐Ÿ˜โœˆ๏ธ So much to see here in Doha, Qatar. ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‡ถ๐Ÿ‡ฆWe're parked next to one of their A350's with just behind it a B77W, A380 and you can just about maken out a 787 wing/engine as it taxies out to runway 34L.

Window seat please! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ“ท ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Central Java's volcano's ๐ŸŒ‹ from Yogyakarta routing to Jakarta, Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ, at sunset.

Sunset in Sylhet, Bangladesh. ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ Sounds like a good Bollywood blockbuster title. ๐Ÿ˜ We are waiting for the cabin to be secured. The taxi time here is so short but with no traffic we are allowed to hold on the runway. As we pushed back the national flag ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ on the terminal was lowered and the gates were locked. We are the last (and only?) flight of the day. Lights out and going home...๐Ÿ˜‚ But not for us, just another 5 hours for go. ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช #instasize #4pilots #flight #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #instaphoto #instapilot #instagramdaily #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #737ng #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #_pilotmoon_ #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

The fuel truck broke down ๐Ÿ˜ž so I had some time to snap a few pictures. ๐Ÿ“ท At least the pushback truck is ready. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Unfortunately it now meant we would leave late but we put our foot down on this 05:30hrs flight and with the help of ATC we arrived early and with even more fuel than expected. Bonus! All in all still a good day out. โœˆ๏ธ And look at that beautiful weather! ๐ŸŒดโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ#instasize #4pilots #flight #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #instaphoto #instapilot #instagramdaily #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #737ng #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #_pilotmoon_ #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

Who minds holding โœˆ๏ธ with views like this! Well actually, I do. ๐Ÿ™ˆ We had just 3 minutes of holding fuel before we had to decide to either divert or commit to Dubai. ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช Seconds later ATC vectored us to start the arrival. No need to make a decision anymore. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ The 'problem' is that in Dubai the full arrival will cost you about 800kgs of fuel on the 737 but 99% of the time you will get a big shortcut saving you loads of fuel and time. But for legal reasons (and safety ๐Ÿ˜‰) you can not base your decision on something 'you might get'. Because what if you don't get your expected shortcut...?! But there is always time to admire a beautiful sunset! ๐Ÿ“ท ๐ŸŒ… #instasize #4pilots #flight #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #instaphoto #instapilot #instagramdaily #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #737ng #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #_pilotmoon_ #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

Sunset shutdown in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฟ Time to sign the techlog and go to the hotel. We'll hand the aircraft (and transfer pax) over to the next crew who will go back to Dubai ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช via Zanzibar. ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฟ The South African Airlines bus next door is in a deep sleep already. #instasize #4pilots #flight #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #instaphoto #instapilot #instagramdaily #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #737ng #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #_pilotmoon_ #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

Back to flying! Welcome to Sylhet, Bangladesh ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ It's 20 min north east of Dhaka, on the Indian border. A new destination for me and for flydubai. โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Our third destination in Bangladesh after Dhaka and Chittagong. I've flown to Bangladesh many times and seen the flooded countryside many times, in different seasons. But the amount of water down here is staggering. And this isn't even monsoon season! ๐Ÿ‘€ #instasize #4pilots #flight #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #instaphoto #instapilot #instagramdaily #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #737ng #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #_pilotmoon_ #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

First day back at work and straightaway tough choices. ๐Ÿ˜‚ The age old question. Which one is better; cookies ๐Ÿช or Pringles?!? Nearly 11 hours flying today but no mutual agreement was reached. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ What so you think? @saeed_only ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช Cookies or @iamchzky Pringles? #firstworldproblems #4pilots #flight #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #instaphoto #instapilot #instagramdaily #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #737 #737ng #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #_pilotmoon_ #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

Sunday 9th of April marks a special occasion for the Boeing 737. On that day in 1967 the Boeing 737-100 flew for the very first time! Happy 50th birthday to our beloved 737! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ’๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ The occasion comes just weeks before the first delivery of the newest version of that jet, the Boeing 737 MAX. Here's a first image of our first brand new MAX 8 at the Boeing factory. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ (๐Ÿ“ท credit Woodys Aeroimages) Did you know flydubai will be introducing a new cabin look, new seats for Economy and Business and new uniforms too! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜ We're rumored to be introducing a new IFE system too. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ So stay tuned for many exciting new pics in the next months. ๐Ÿ“ทโœˆ๏ธ I'll be celebrating the day by returning back to work after nearly 4 weeks of leave. Next stop is also a new destination for me and flydubai; Zylhet, Bangladesh. #instasize #4pilots #flight #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #instaphoto #instapilot #instagramdaily #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #boeing #boeinglovers #boeingairplanes #flydubai #737 #737ng #boeing737 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #_pilotmoon_ #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost

Coloring ๐Ÿ“or watching planes โœˆ๏ธ? My youngest daughter made the right choice. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ A true daddies girl. ๐Ÿ˜‚ The massive GE90's are coming alive and the whole plane vibrates and makes loud noises.

Untill another time Bali! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉYou've blessed us with good weather despite it being the end of the rain season. We've refreshed old memories and made new ones. Just remind me not to fly #tigerair again. Nothing wrong with the crew but the service/experience compared to Silk Air is very low and the seat pitch is horrible for us tall Europeans. I love flying but never wanted to get of an aircraft so quickly. Next stop; Singapore ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ and then home! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช #instasize #4pilots #flight #flightdeck #pilot #pilotlife #instaphoto #instapilot #instagramdaily #igpilotsoftheweek #instatravel #instaviation #aviator #avgeek #airlinelife #photooftheday #pilotlife #crewlife #pilot #bali #airbuslovers #airbusairplanes #tigerair #airbus #a320 #airbus320 #runway #megaplane #piloteyes737 #_pilotmoon_ #airlinepilot #globalaviationrepost
