  1. What's up with that Stephen H choke-u collars on everything??? YUK! Plus gotta love all that flammable material on offer... lol
  2. Just took me 8 tries and several page change/refreshes before I could log in...
  3. Which is easy enough to provide by conducting a search of the TC Civil Aircraft Register if it's for a type/model you don't have access to (ie you don't work there, you can't figure it out and/or you don't want to ask). Sometimes you have to get a little creative if the registered owner is different from legal owner. Alternatively you can just send Bell an email and ask, presenting a valid reason. I have access to the entire fleet and I find the maintenance information a huge benefit in helping me understand systems or operating procedures, even though I'm a pilot, not an engineer. I w
  4. You know you can get a current manual - FREE - directly from Bell by siging up for their technical publications site? Bell actually wants flight and maintenance crews to have the latest technical publications!
  5. @Rotor, thanks for that! That was an awesome speech, and story to read. @Winnie, with a month gap in any updates on this thread, bigD has it right. Kind of a childish poke there. I don't understand why people only seem to post on here to slag others - doesn't anyone have anything nice to say, or industry news to contribute? Lessons learned? Funny anecdotes? @bigD I think Rotor's point is that TFW is not applicable here,however certain people keep bringing up the point just to be nasty. One example raised is Winnie, who may have at one time been a TFW, but has since earned the ri
  6. Anyways. Does anyone know the present status of CHL hiring for the NWS contract,or have reasonably accurate speculation? Have all the positions been filled, and if not, what's left on the table? As before, any intel appreciated - by PM is fine if those in the know prefer. To those who applied, and were successful, congratulations! Thanks! tin lizzie
  7. Well, I replied to the CHL ad immediately when it came out and so far have heard nothing in response - at this late date I'm not feeling overly optimistic. Does anyone know if the positions have already been filled? If so, were they all filled internally, and/or by HTSC personnel already on the contract? Thanks for any intel! Best Regards, tin lizzie
  8. @shakey Dude. Not cool. What happened with the NWS contract is business - some people gain, some people lose - and it will happen again down the road. But what you said right there is personal, and downright nasty. I'm the first person to agree that a stop needs to put on operators abusing the import of TFW - I and many others have personally taken action in this regard. But neither the companies who abuse the TFW policy, nor the TFW themselves are at fault. Both are taking advantage of an opportunity that the Canadian government allowed to happen, without any regard for protec
  9. I wouldn't think an emergency TFW application would "fly" if a company knowingly bids on and accepts a contract they are unable to staff! At least I hope not. Besides, given the economy these days there are plenty of qualified Canadian pilots looking for work. I don't see anything unreasonable or unfair about the ads posted - terms, conditions and qualifications required. Pay looks to be negotiate what you're worth and what you can get away with - good for Captains anyway. In general it looks quite attractive from where I presently stand and considering where I'm hoping to grow my heli
  10. This is very exciting news! Resume sent and fingers crossed!
  11. The problem I see with this reporting system is unless a pilot knows someone on the inside we have no way of knowing whether we were not hired due to a preferred Canadian worker or a TFW. We can certainly report that we applied at the company during the LMO application period, but that's all most of us could state with any certainty. This is kind of like closing the barn door after the horse escapes - considering it could take over a year (or more!) to obtain an ATP request. I'm pretty sure the government is well aware of this. Besides, as I've said before, as long as employers know there i
  12. Still need volunteers!!!! Even if you're not sure about the whole gender balance thing it's still the coolest event ever - and we've even got a female astronaut/USN heli pilot! From shop floor to top floor, we're inspiring future leaders! Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/SkysNoLimitGirlsFlyToo Volunteers, helicopters and and GA aircraft (fixed-wing or heli) for static display needed - please contact kirsten@girlsfly2.ca Press Release 24 Feb 2015 - Female Space Traveller Lands in Abbotsford BC.pdf
  13. Thank you! This year is going to be even more awesome! I'd really appreciate help with volunteers - yes, we really hope the guys will come help! - either by signing up or passing the word along. Facebook like/shares helpful too!
