    Whether you fly frequently or once in a blue moon, sometimes there are things happening that you would like to know more about, or simply know why?

    Why do I hear a dog barking on my Jetstar A320 flights as we taxi out?

    I had a night flight last night and noticed the captain during the night put on the landing lights for short periods as we were cruising, why would they do that?

    On an Airbus A330, why do the Exit lights only come on near the ground and what activates them?

    Sometimes we are waiting for take off for a long time with no apparent landing aircraft in the way, why?

    Why should you not put on Pyjamas before takeoff?

    With our Ask the Pilot thread passing the half a million views mark recently, such questions are common, but what might surprise you is the answers. Here on AFF we are lucky to have a group of professionals who volunteer to answer your questions, including our resident Qantas A380 Captain, JB747, supported by other pilots and aviation professionals including former military, commercial and helicopter pilots as well as Air Traffic Controllers and engineers.

    As with all topics on AFF, we encourage active participation in an open and respectful way, however given the nature of the subject material, there are some extra rules when it comes to answers
    As this is an "ask the pilot" thread, we ask that non-pilot members refrain from answering questions that have been directed to pilots until the pilots members have had a good opportunity to answer the question (i.e. at least 7 days). Posts contrary to this request or discussions that get too far off topic may be removed or moved to a more appropriate thread or forum so we can retain order and respect in this thread.
    So if your wondering what the holes under the wing are on an A380, whats better 4 engines or 2 or even do both pilots get the same meals, don't be afraid to ask the pilot! No question is a silly question, and a smart traveller is an informed traveller.

    We also have a thread for asking cabin crew questions regarding their roles.

    Please keep in mind that all our members including our resident experts have busy lives and volunteer their time, so there may be delays in responses.
