New Logo

Firstly, I hope you like it. If you have any suggestions, please email me at squawk@captainaboard.com

The wave in the logo represents my father who was a sailor and a nautical captain. The wave also resembles both his initials "RC" and mine "JC" combined. (Albeit an awkward "J")

The year 2011 is when my father's memory took off and also when this website took off. 

To re-iterate, even though I am currently a "professional" (as my flight instructor named me) student pilot, I am working towards what my father was - a captain. He on water and I in the skies. 

Thank you to all of you who have supported our website and look forward to serving you with many great posts to come.

RATING:
FIVE STARS

Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

Anything

Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand on your own two feet. 
Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. 
Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back.  
Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. 
Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything out of your control is teaching you how to let go.



Life is a lesson.  Passing the exam is up to us.
Take to this Monday with the lessons above.  Do your homework no matter how long it takes.  Passing the test will be one of the greatest achievements you will ever accomplish.

As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…
