One of the people some of you wanted to hear from was a pilot so we have a commercial pilot here to answer your questions! Our guest poster has been flying for almost 20 years now. He has flown turboprops, flown jets on short haul and long haul flights and has also been an instructor on jets. He also flies light aircraft from time to time.
Please bear in mind that he may be in a different time zone so answers may be delayed.
Let's get this one off to a flying start (sorry...not sorry )
