About Sam Chui
“My soul is in the sky”

What’s my favorite aircraft? I get this question a lot. The answer is, of course, the Boeing 747, the Queen of the Skies. It is my first love and it always has my heart. The Jumbo Jet made the globe smaller and opened up world travel for me.

I enjoy anything related to aviation and travel. My fascination with aeroplanes stemmed from visiting Kai Tak airport as a teenager. I have spent some of the happiest times of my life in the air. It is that precious feeling of being above the clouds, the romance and the curiosity of flying which developed my passion towards aviation and travel.

I have now travelled to over 100 countries, flown over 2,000 flights and logged over 3 million miles around the globe in the pursuit of my lifelong passion. I have organically built a loyal following of like-minded aviators, travelers and industry experts who access and engage with my content on a daily basis. I hope my content brings you closer to my aviation and travel experience.
