  3. They think that you owe them beer if they help untie your machine. They don’t need encouragement.

  8. Oddly enough it does when you go frame by frame. Not sure how its even possible. Backward blades aside lol, my guess is its a camera strap or something caught under the collective. Had an 8 year old kid almost jerk the collective up on me during flight idle not long ago.

  9. I'm pretty sure that the "Engineer" is the Owner of Hunter Helicopters. Who runs from under the 500 to help. It is also Hunter's video system the captured the accident.

  13. Colour me surprised! Pacific region, submitted May 05, response received May 21! PURPOSE This equivalency certificate authorizes the transport of propane on a cargo aircraft, which is a helicopter, in quantities greater than what is prescribed by regulations. The dangerous goods are transported in compliance with section 12.9 – Limited Access of the TDG Regulations. The dangerous goods are contained in cylinders that are either slung externally from the helicopter or in an external cargo compartment attached to the helicopter. In either case, the cyli

  14. I’d be curious to know if you run into issues, which region you are in and what the turnaround time is for the issuance of the of the EC. I’ve heard from some others, that there are significant disparities from one region to the next. SHOCK! Lol I've always found it perplexing, that despite decades of TC trying to curb such regional disparity, they continue to struggle to get inspectors and regions to administer the regulations consistently. I guess their corrective actions aren’t directed at the true root cause.

  15. I would be completely comfortable with having to fully document my identity to the forum administrators. Allowing me to have a relatively anonymous user name means that I can post personal opinions and not have them confused with any organizational/occupational restrictions I may have to follow. For some, this is a serious concern.

  16. The Vertical forums are meant to provide for open discussion and dialogue. However, recently certain individuals' posts have sunk to all-time lows. This includes the impersonation of other individuals and fraud. In one case an individual went so far as to post a fake job listing for a company, and impersonate the individual that works at this company. This is libelous and will not be tolerated. We continue to investigate these posts. The individual(s) WILL BE identified and their names and contact details provided to company lawyers for further action. Vertical originated from Ca

  17. user names are as unique as each and every one of us. I personally dont need to see your name posted in your user name or as a signature. The element of mystery over who "Goose" is, offers the user some intrigue. however, i do believe proper credentials need to be used to get a membership. the reason why, is that this industry is full of back stabbers. always will be. guys willing to trash you on these pages and outside in the field. proper ID will keep out some of the riff raff, fake profiles etc. every one of us still needs the ability to protect our interests and ourselv

  18. I have been away for a while as well. I got tired of reading stupid things that cowards would say as they hide in anonymity. I say keep the forums but as Dan said, you post, you post under your real name. This can be a useful and informative place as well as a good place to keep in touch with friends. 412driver aka Rob Dyck

  19. Well it's actually nice to see some respectful dialog and honest opinions here, you are all making good points here! I have been working in this industry for 35 years now. I have enjoyed it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly! Show me an industry or corporation that does not have politics and sleaze bags . It comes down too one thing.... how "you" want too deal with it ! Thick skin helps, but being knowledgable and professional is one way of mitigating the politics around you, along with the douchebags wether they are a boss, co- worker or even a customer.... don't play their childish games
