From Boeing to Airbus. By Owen Zupp.

Airbus A320 Simulator Flight Deck.

After a good deal of study, training and the occasional sleepless night, I have completed my conversion onto the Airbus A320 and A321. It has been a learning experience in many ways, but particularly given the fact that I have flown Boeing aircraft for more than 20 years.

For me, the completion of the training marks the opportunity to regain the balance between my passions of family, flight and writing. The coming weeks will see the release of 'The Practical Pilot' (Volume 2) and the completion of a major work, more than a decade in the making.

Still, for all of this the most common question I am being asked is "Which is better, Boeing or Airbus?". It is far too early to say anything other than pointing out that both aircraft have their own strengths and weaknesses. No doubt I will form a firmer opinion in time, so stay tuned. In the meantime, thank you everyone for your emails and ongoing support of this blog and my books. I look to sharing more with you through both in the very near future.

Cheers and thanks again,
