What a great article! I'm happy to read some "good" news!

"I'm very grateful for Singapore Airlines who has given me a very good job for the last 11 years so that I can share my salary with so many people. To help these children is a privilege for me and my wife because it's giving back to society ... giving back what has been blessed to us."

Simply Awesome!

Impressive. He is example to all of what an honorable person can accomplish.

My first impression on reading the headline was "Wow. That's a lot of flight attendents he went through....."

I thought it was going to be about a father, son pilot team that would fly a '47. AKA 744.

There was an article a few years back about a father-daughter 737 crew at WN.

What a great role model this fine Man of the Air is! People like this give us hope for the future.
And even after losing his job, he's still taking care of these children. I sincerely hope SQ hires him back or somebody does, soon!

His orphanage website: http://www.roslinorphanage.org

Very touching... I hope he is in the top 10 finalist of CNN Heros, so he'll get the $25,000 award. He is spending his life savings for this orphanage.

Capt. Budi is actually an Indonesian and was working for Singapore Airlines for 11 years. I spoke with him about 2 weeks ago and mentioned that he's going to ve interviewed by CNN about his orphanage.
He is indeed a great role model and God Bless his heart.



737 is the sexiest aircraft Boeing ever produced !

Since SQ furloughed Capt. Budi it is because God has something MUCH MUCH better in store for him. God loves you very much Capt. Budi and so do I.

I guess I saw the same thing but for a UA 737 crew 3 or 4 years ago.

 rotfl  Many people would naturally think likewise when reading the headlines be it with the flight attendants or other women.

Read this story and saw their photos in some aviation magazine in the past.
