Airplane Ride with JFK

I read k.Emila's tweet about a contest at her blog when i was about to hit the bed. The prize was a free ride on an airplane! Who doesn't get excited when u read something like that?! I do! The questions are quite simple and all the answers are in her blog. Senang nak cari actually thanks to k. Emila's neat archive. But i answered some questions wrong at first....gerammmm sampai office the next day pon still dok search for the answers lol! And after the 3rd try, i got all the answers correct and i was like OMG! really?! but control  hidong from kembang kempis keterujaan yang over depan colleagues.

So there i was at Skypark Terminal Subang that weekend with Cheep yang baik hati tolong hantar. I also got to know my flying partner Yuven, a friend of k.Emila who is very friendly just like she described him. We meetup with JFK at Skypark McDonald around 10.30am and i violently volunteered to be the co-pilot. Thanks to Yuven for being so gentleman hehe. I wish Cheep can join too but takpelah insya Allah ada rezeki lain kiter naik together :)

Ohh I also watched a video about JFK prior the meetup. Saja2 check out the pilot who's gonna fly me around KL. And i found that his video was very inspiring! You can watch the video here and be inspired! He's a DJ, tv personality, musician and a pilot. How awesome is that to have a career that not really related to each other.

While borak2 at the tarmac, our ride has arrived! Tadaaaa...jakun! jakun!

Some info about the aircraft.

Then it's time to get into the airplane and put on our headset. Time nih takde aircond lagik so JFK said i gotta sit like a boss with one elbow at the window (tolak tingkap) so that angin luar can masuk. I also learned that if you wanna talk inside the airplane while using this headset you have to make sure the mic is really close to your lips or else nobody is gonna hear you. Well basically sambil cakap you kiss the mic lah. No wonder sometimes pilot cakap cam tak bukak mulut sangat kan? Maybe it's because of this reason...kalo cakap bukak mulut besar2 kang mic termasuk mulut. Logic eh?

JFK pushed some buttons here and there, started to communicate with person in charge at the tower, checked the engine, meters and all, drove us to the runaway and up we go.

There is no music in the airplane but JFK provide us some with his humming including Top Gun's soundtrack! lol!

Flying with JFK

We flew around KLCC area, ikea, publika, istana negara etc. Hohhh bes bes...kalo la boleh landing trus. Senang nak pegi shopping, pegi kejer minus all the traffic jam.

Me and Yuven excited expression. Gayat? No, this are happy times. We even did some ballet moves up there where JFK tilted to the right we were like "wheeee"....tilted to the left and "wheeeee". But when Yuven asked for a roller coaster ride on the way back and JFK agreed i was like sheyttttt! Gayat gila hahahaha! I screamed as if the airplane was gonna crash even it was only for a few seconds...well because that was actually the exact feeling! LOL!

Flying with JFK

We landed smoothly (totally soft and smooth i swear) about 20mins later *clap! clap*

We also got a tour around the hangar by JFK's partner, naik pick up truck and watched other airplane tgh buat maintenance in skypark. It was an awesome and once in a blue moon experience! It's not everyday that you have the pass to access all these areas easily. Alhamdulillah, i got this opportunity :)

Many thanks to kak Emila Yusof and JFK. You guys rawks!
