  2. Very sad news morning for the Helicopter world. Richard Alzetta passed away this morning at Foothills hospital in Calgary. Next to his family, Richard’s passion in life was flying in the mountains and passing his knowledge off to aspiring helicopter pilots. Anyone who flew with knows how much he loved to fly. He was an integral part of the success of Mountain View Helicopters and a mentor to many. He will be missed immensely. RIP my friend.

  3. Very sad news. A real mentor for so many of us, global experience with countless hours and an amazing, genuine passion for helicopters . A person whom I hold the highest respect for, wish I could have thanked you one more time. You will be missed Richard, and thank you for the influence you had on all of us.

  4. With the Astra Zeneca controversy going on I just read that our fearless Idiot in charge says we should just take it and be happy. Well let's start with Ontario and Quebec first. They trusted him on a self balancing budget, so what could possibly go wrong with actual science?

  5. A great pilot. Exceptional, real world instructor. And it was always apparent that he loved it, whether it was a R44 in the rocks, or a 205 with dual HYD failures and everything above and in between. Safe Travels Richard. Show em how it’s done up there.

  8. TC Civil Aviation would have nothing to argue about. Simply conducting an external load automatically makes the flight a 702 aerial work flight under the CARs. You cannot conduct external load under 703, only 702. The CARs define Aerial Work as: “A commercial air service other than an air transport service or a flight training service” Aerial work under CARs section 702 involves: (a) the carriage on board of persons other than flight crew members ; (b) the carriage of helicopter Class B, C or D external loads; (c) the towing of objects (e.g., banners); or (d) the dispersal

  10. when you dig deeper into some of the occupation classifications, forestry work is higher classed than air transportation work, but still under anything medical. for mechanics, there are classifications similar depending on what you do specifically as well. but it's all subjective to interpretation, and who do you approach to get approval? Who do you petition to get the shot ahead of the cue? Is your doctor your best best to approach?? Not to turn this into a political thread, but Trudope is a failure, and unfortunately his followers voted him in for his hair. He's not qual

  16. They don’t do snail mail anymore. It’s all via email. I have everything done but have to do a face to face so I’m in a holding pattern till Covid gets sorted. Validation takes a bout two weeks right now.

  18. Think once I faxed the FAA my request it took about 3-4 weeks, I think I received an email verification and snail mail copy of the letter. Then with the letter, I could book the CCH exam. With the exam pass, you book an appointment with a FSDO and they will verify your logbook, Cdn License, and exam results, and then grant you a temp license. this was a few years back, working with the gov’t is pretty slow process. Good Luck!

Didn't have to wait til I hit 60 to start shacking my head...working on a 205..on a logging job...putting covers on in a snow storm on the side of a mountain in the dark and then having to pull a fuel pressure switch out of the right side fuel bladder...still had 300 lbs of fuel on board...running a generator to get some light up in grizz country...by my self...should I say more!
