This captain 👨🏽✈️is my lucky 🍀 charm! Every time I fly into @lgaairport something crazy is happening: hectic airspace, bad weather, annoying delays, every changing schedules - but with Folaju everything runs smooth! If only he were here now 😬 Anybody else have a lucky 🍀 friend??
Let’s explain “walk arounds”🔦🕵🏼♂️
Walk around inspections are carried out by both flight crew pre departure and by engineers after the aircraft lands as part of the daily / post flight check. the engineer will perform a walk around inspection of multiple points on an aircraft just a few to list; radome, pitot ports, static ports, ice detectors, AOA indicator, nose wheels and bay, main landing gear and bay(if accessible), engines (front and back), leading edge of wings, horizontal stab and vertical stab.
Why do we do it?
A walk around check is not an intensive inspection, it is done from ground level and is mainly checking for damage from bird strikes, lightning strikes and any other possible causes of damage. We will also check the wheel tread for any cord showing from the wheels which will result in a change! We also check the brake pin length looking to see if it’s within limits which change from airline and aircraft procedures!
We also check for any leaks which can be from hydraulic systems or potable water systems!

Sene 2010, Kıbrıs’ta asteğmenim. Deniz Teğmen ⭐️ ile yollarımız kesişti... Bu adam benim her dağıttığımda arkamı topladı, yetiş dediğimde yanımda oldu. Yeri geldi komşum oldu, yeri geldi dostum oldu, yeri geldi yol gösterenim oldu, yeri geldi meslektaşım oldu 🙂 Buraya dikkattt! Meslektaşım (Birlikte mümessillik te yaptık) Bu adam benim yol arkadaşım benim kader ortağım. Sonra bir gün dedi ki kardeşim ben pilot 👨🏻✈️ ✈️oldum... Anlatacak o kadar çok şey var ki, hani derler ya kelimeler kifayetsiz kalır, zaman bile anlatmaya yetmez kader ortaklığımızı...! Ama şunu net bilirim! Benim hayat mücadelemi en iyi ondan dinlersin, onunda hayat mücadelesini en iyi benden dinlersin. Baki dostum, kadim dostum! Her zaman dostsun, her zaman Can’sın! @udnzd #pilot#airlines#caddebostansahil
