I see it all the time, too. Mao pa lang gani pag touchdown sa aircraft, hulbot dayon sa cellphone...dili kahulat. It's like....they must be so eager to get home na.

not true at all--using mobile phones hamper aircrafts communication and airborne maneuvering. u can actually use your mobile phone while flying for as long as may signal.

False and that's a foolish for a passenger to do. It is a safety procedure that we must all obey, whether we have knowledge on radio communications and ECE. A simple jam caused by a mobile signal may end up in a disaster. Unless that the pilot or the aircraft has an approved frequency for calling, then we may call from the aircraft.

Just think about this, if you land at MNL, it was raining hard, the pilot made a touchdown and was moving towards the airport. The pilot was advised by the tower control to change their frequency to ground control. While taxiing on a busy taxiway, the ground control gives coordinates to the pilot on where to pass...but it was choppy and noisy because of signals jamming communication. It too may affect instrumental systems and the like. Because of the jam, the craft may hit other planes, other traffic or worse, an aircraft taking off or landing. Visual is limited when you are at the airport.

So, just to avoid ending up in Air Crash Investigation, kindly switch the phone off at all times during the flight.

Like in medicine, always follow your doctors prescriptions...in this case, always follow the captains order should he say so even if its really not necessary. the captain knows well his own aircraft and everyone is bound to comply. otherwise, you can freely use your mobile.

But the Civil Aviation Board of the Philippines say it is prohibited in the duration of the entire flight. That includes take-offs, cruising and landing. No one is above the law. So, are we still free to use our mobile numbers even if it meant for risking our safety? It seems someone hasn't taken his medicine lately. Where's your common sense?

I love watching Air Crash Investigation but never dreamed of being in it giving my horrible testimony or my parents giving theirs on my behalf because I am now flying in heaven. For your safety, no questions asked and just shut that phone off.

Flights to Siquijor now available; more airport improvements up

Flights to Siquijor now available; more airport improvements up

SIQUIJOR, June 16 (PIA) -- Giving a boost to Siquijor’s tourism, a ten-seater plane now flies to Siquijor from Cebu, Bohol, Bantayan and Camiguin Islands.
Mid-Sea Express’ inaugural flight touched down at the Cang-alwang Airport at around 2:30 p.m on June 10. Aboard the plane was Capt. Ronan Vilanueva, an apprentice, Marketing Manager Gerard Olvis, and some media men from Cebu.
Key local officials led by Provincial Governor Orlando A. Fua Jr and Congressman Orlando B. Fua, heads of different agencies, businessmen and resort owners, and students welcomed the Mid-Sea Express Team in its first flight to Siquijor Island.
The flight RP-C1320, the Mid-Sea Express management said, flies Siquijor to Cebu every Friday and Sunday, and via Tagbilaran Bohol on Wednesday. It has 10 seats, twin-engine low flying Islander that enables the passengers to capture an aerial view of the scenic spots, the management said.
A Siquijor-Dumaguete route is soon to open as more and more Siquijodnons are seen frequenting Dumaguete City, its marketing manager said.
Meanwhile, Siquijor Governor Fua, tapping on tourism as a tool for development, said that he will allocate an initial of P200 thousand for the rehabilitation and improvement of the 800m-runway- Cang-alwang airport.
This he also bared during the maiden flight of the Mid Sea express in the island.
It is imperative to have direct flights here, Gov. Fua said as he assured that the airport is well on the way to better improvement.
But Fua said he is appealing to the present administration to help his initiatives in renovating the airport citing that the presence of air transportation in the island will obviously make the travel of businessmen, tourists and locals faster and more convenient considering the country’s dramatic improvement in domestic air routes and the province’s influx of tourists.
It is a vital component for comprehensive upliftment of both the economy and the livelihood of the island, he finally said. (by Rizalie A. Calibo/Inacher A. Abatayo)

PAL offers free airlift for Cotabato relief goods
by Philippine Airlines on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 3:20pm

Relief goods for Cotabato flood victims will be flown for free by Philippine Airlines (PAL) on its regular flights from Manila to Cotabato, Davao and General Santos.

The PAL Foundation has been coordinating with various non-governmental organizations (NGOs) who want to send relief goods to Cotabato. Recipients of the shipment should preferably be the sender's counterpart or reputable NGOs, civic or religious groups from Mindanao.

In case the Airbus A319 aircraft that flies once a day to Cotabato is unable to accommodate the volume of relief goods, others will be loaded on the flights toDavao and General Santos. PAL deploys its wide-body aircraft – B747s and A340s – on the flights to Davao and General Santos.

PAL is only providing free airlift, thus land transport from Davao and General Santos to Cotabato should be handled by the consignee or recipient of the goods.

To maximize cargo space, PAL advises shippers to refrain from sending items that are available or may easily be purchased in or near Cotabato (such as noodles, bottled water, rice, etc.), perishable food and hazardous or bulky items like LPG.

So far, three private foundations have advised PAL on their planned shipment of relief donations.

NGOs and other foundations intending to send relief to Cotabato flood victims may contact the PAL Foundation through Ms. Menchu Sarmiento, executive director, at 851-2980, 834-0581, 855-8000 local 2563 or email at menchu_sarmiento@pal.com.ph.

Smart phones have, most ordinary phones don't have. And in PAL or CebuPacific, they emphasized on "...even on flight mode." For a domestic flight, I guess turning off the phone while on flight is as easy as pie. The longest trip would be more or less two hours. I'll just follow the law or the regulation imposed by CAB without question.

I'd better take precaution na lang.

For me, Bai, automatic na na that I turn off my cellphone when I am on the plane. It is so easy to do. I don't even wait for the flight attendants to tell the passengers to do so. I also do the same when I am in church and movie theaters.

Besides for safety (kaya nga batas regarding the use of cellphones in flight, kaya kung rest my case, sana hindi ma rest in peace...) ang tawag din diyan... proper etiquette, which is now rare...

sounds like the voice of capt> manny osias, 5j airbus chief pilot and coaching one the promising FOs. Yes, its a turning and descending downwind leg and they are still able to do a straight base leg before short finals. Tegucigalpa in Honduras is all turning until short finals, just skimming slighly above the hill!

11 airports to help decongest Naia


Eleven provincial airports have obtained the green-light from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines to operate day and night as part of measures to decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport’sterminals.

In a related development, 15 flying schools have agreed to stoping using the general aviation area and will use runways and airstrips outside Metro Manila.

Director General Ramon S. Gutierrez said the airports are: Puerto Princesa, Cagayan de Oro, Zamboanga, Davao, Kalibo, Laoag, Iloilo, Bacolod, Tacloban, General Santos and Dumaguete.

The move is part of the open-skies policy adopted by the Aquino administration to upgrade provincial airports so that foreign carriers can also come in, he said.

Following a dialogue withdomestic carriers, a consensus was reached between the CAAP, the Manila International Airport Authority, Philippine Airlines, Airphil Express, Cebu Pacific, Zest Air and SeaAir that night time operations will be allowed with the installation of runway lights and other night landing facilities and equipment.

A study shows that 36 aircraft take off at the NAIA every hour resulting in congestion and slotting problems.

“We discovered that all of the domestic airline operators are in a hurry to come back before sunset, where provincial airports stop operating due to the absence of runway lights,” Gutierrez said.

Domestic carriers bundle their departures early in the morning, at noon and sometime in the afternoon so that all of them would be able to take off at their point of departures before sunset.

The Manila International Airport Authority has limited the number of departures to 36 flights per hour. Once the quota is met, air carriers can choose other “slots” or schedules so that departures are spread out evenly thus avoiding congestion. Pilots need no longer worry of taking off after sunset, since the eleven airports can now serve them.

Meanwhile, runways and airstrips in Plaridel, Bulacan and Clark in Pampanga have been made open for the use of flying schools, Gutierrez said.

There are 56 schools accredited by the CAAP but the bigger ones have opted to operate away from the MIAA, he said.

Training grounds operated by the state-run Civial Aviation Training Center for air traffic controllers and communications specialists will be offered to private flying schools, he said.
