Pilot Talks... Pilot ki Baat..!
Hosted by Capt. Vijay Sharma, Master Mariner @capt.vijay
along with Co-Host Capt.Gajanan Karanjikar, President of AIMPA, India @captgajanan
We have the honor to invite our Special Guest.
Capt. Henk Hensen.
Capt Henk makes the point that it is often not known WHY effects and accidents happen. When piloting board ships and in simulators, the big WHY was not often visible but manned-models show everything clearly as I found out after 30 years of real and simulated ship handling! They show clearly why 'speed is your enemy and power is your friend'.
He also mentioned tug orders and language. It is vital that pilot and tug master talk to each other clearly in their own language. Intent should be briefly explained to the master when time and the pilot's attention permits.
