  2. Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but has anyone here gotten around to trying out a Stephan/H suit or jacket/pants combo? I would like to give them a shot but am having a really tough time justifying the nearly $800 price tag. Especially when you can get a standard style suit from Flight Line or Guardian for low $400's.

    Jet-B In A Diesel?

    Don't use ATF for an additive contary to what a lot of old timers will say. One time they use to say it was good for cleaning injectors. It has friction modifiers in it and is designed not to burn. Basic non detergent 2 stroke oil is one of your cheapest and best lube options from the tests I've read in my research. Ive burned lots of Jet A with 2 stroke oil trouble free in a common rail cummins. Also use to add some power service as well to boost the cetane #'s as jet fuel is low in cetane.One thing to think about jet fuel though and new diesels with emission systems like exhaust filters is jet fuel contains a lot of sulphur that would clog emissions crap. I wouldn't run Jet B in my truck though to get back to the original question.
  5. After 70 pages of "Hogwash", why are airlines using miles that never change, between A & B for log book enteries converted to air time, depending on the knots of the particular aircraft. Mileage Rate has been accepted for Fixed Wing aircraft since tariffs came into effect. The only rate that is in question is the hourly rate charged by both Fixed Wing and Rotary Wing aircraft. The only charges applicable is when said a/c takes-off and returns for it's final landing. Manufacturers have stated that there is no STRESS on any a/c idling on the ground or taxing. Air Time (Stress Time) is the only time to be entered in the Technical Log. As I have stated before operators have control of "Air Time" which becomes a cost factor in relation to the life of the a/c and the components attached. When doing an Audit its easy to confirm the invoiced hours against the Tech Log entry are the same. Flight Time is only applicable to aircrew and has nothing to do with overhaul or life of the aircraft or components. When I was Audting on behalf of PWGSC (after completing a Transport Canada Audit Course) I visited just about every opertor in Canada doing business on a contracting basis with the Feds. I also worked with Export Development Corporation and USAF Audit Team from Scott Airforce Base, auditing all Canadian Airlines doing business transporting American contractors or personnel. One thing the USAF taught me was if they were not happy a company, they were put on notice and not used. In actual fact one company was put on notice after they had been visited by Transport Audit from Moncton two days prior to our arrival. Needless to say they were slightly embarrased, when I informed them of our findings. The whole system of Transport Civil Aviation needs a complete overhaul and get some people in there that care about avaition and not writing a two page memo on something that can be said in a paragraph. Use the "KISS" principal and enforce it

    What is going on at delta helicopters?

    oh look, Reapers twin troll has decided to pipe in again.
  10. I’m not sure that this method is “extremely belaboured”, but I agree it is inconsistent with ICAO. TC seems more concerned with inconsistencies between the method Helicopters and aeroplanes use to log flight time. I don’t know about you, but I think the root cause of this whole mess was TCs failure to recognize there are very few consistencies between aeroplane and helicopter operations. The old “One size fits all” approach. Oh the irony... Additional excerpts from the AC. “Using the ICAO definition for flight time - helicopter which includes an allowance for rotors turning to rotors stopped introduces a significant discrepancy between aeroplanes and helicopters because aeroplanes do not record start up and shut down times as flight time.” “TC determined the existing CARs definition of flight time was more appropriate to ensure regulatory compliance by flight students, pilots, and air operators with the intended personnel licensing requirements. This would also ensure consistency by logging flight time in both aeroplanes and helicopters the method in accordance with the existing common standard. Subsequently, the GAPL was cancelled in 2009 and the Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) withdrawn. “ its also inconsistent with their own interpretation of aircraft “in operation” in the Canada Labour Code. Both definitions use the same terminology, so it’s likely the intent of the drafters was for Flight time to be consistent with the time an aircraft is “in operation”. I believe it is for aeroplanes....but apparently not for Helicopters. Yet another inconsistency between aeroplanes and Helicopters...TC AOHS and ESDC interpret a Helicopter as being in operation any time the rotors are turning for the purpose of taking off. its also inconsistent with current case law (Wildcat v Ellis). As I understand it, courts are bound by intent and case law, when statutory law is ambiguous. Question is, does Guidance Material trump both? On the flip side, it’s still a compllete 180 from Flight Time = Air time. The time spent on the ground during intermediate landings dwarfs the time spent starting and shutting down industry wide..
  11. Well my friend you are in luck because they still pay what slaves used to make.but the going home part may be a problem.

    Sounds like a job I'd like. Camp! Work like a slave and go home. Sounds great!
  13. I just got back from Rainbow. Nice gym, place to myself mostly. Great time of year to catch up on reading, practice a few recipes i’m working on. Or whine online like a little *****. mileage may vary.
  14. You wouldn’t now you say sitting on your computer trolling a forum, but I bet if they told you to pack your bags you’d be the first one trying to come up with an excuse to not go cuz your cousins, sisters dog is having a tough time transitioning between food brands so you probably won’t be able to go.

    I actually enjoyed my times in Rainbow. I wouldnt cry like a princess pilot if I had to do it again

    Maybe you should fire them a resume, you seem to always have an opinion on everything and everybody. I’m sure you’ll love the 42/5s in the dead of winter in rainbow lake.

    AS350B3 strange vibration

    Also one thing to check is the Bi-Directional Crossbeam (Dogbone) under the Transmission, the elastomer pucks can get worn, there has been cracks found on the beam it self as well.
  18. Something tells me you folks aren't working 42 and 5's, are being paid appropriately and not required to live in Rainbow Lake.
  19. I am sorry but that sounds like a positive post and there is no room on here for that type of attitude, so knock it off!! lol
  20. I’m currently working on Fires in Australia with a few Canadian machines & 4 Canadian Pilots, & that’s just 1 fire region. We’re all getting on great & making the most of the work while it’s here. Just sayin’.
  21. Besides being extremely belaboured, it is inconsistent with the quite simple ICAO standard definition of “helicopter flight time”, to which Canada has not filed an exception.
  22. It’s 9 pages with Appendix A and B
  23. GrayHorizons

    What is going on at delta helicopters?

    Shouldnt be on there at all once they get your resume in hand. You'll be hired on the spot
  24. So does this post imply the old CP was the problem? Seems like a strange post.
  25. Hahahahaha when’s this one gonna be on bladeslapper?
  26. There's nothing better than to be flying high in the sky.
