  1. No, this Spitfire came from the US. It is the lowest time original Spitfire. Built in 1945 just as the war ended. Has around 150 hours on it.
  2. The CHC building looks almost identical to the old Vector hangar. Good catch. The Highland facility was owned by Landmark Shell, but obviously will be empty now, looking for a new tenant. Bob still owns the Spitfire and Mosquito, but they're up for sale.
  3. The old Vector building. I imagine the Highland building will be coming up too.
  4. Check with the Highland bases. They may have them for sale.
  5. On the maintenance side, the maintenance release is carried out under the company ACA #, so the company insurance covers issues. I would imagine if you've had your PPC with the company, it would be the same.
  6. In BC, WCB is covered by the employer if you are the lone employee of your contracting company, and provide only labour to the employer. The employer provides coverage for any employee in their facility, regardless of your pay structure.
  7. Contract rates will have to be higher than employee salary rates. You're paying both sets of taxes. You will have to pay corporate taxes, taxes on company revenue, and all employer deductions, such as EI. Then you pay employee wages, and from that, deduct income tax. If your contract rate isn't much higher than the employee salary, it's not worth it. The contract rate must be higher for this to be worth it.
  8. No it isn't. It's available through Canadian Tire and Home Depot.
  9. Yes, Ultra was just outside Grimshaw. Black Swan is also just south of Grimshaw and had a base in Manning. There was another operator in Manning too, but I've forgotten the name.
  10. By 1988, Maple Leaf had been bought out by Ranger. I started there in 1987.
  11. I started with Ranger in 1987 after they had just bought out Maple Leaf. In 1988, Sealand bought Okanagan and became Canadian, and they also bought out Ranger.
  12. Familiarize yourself with the difference between 'retorque ' and 'torque check'. I'll see if i have an entry to share tomorrow.

  14. It says free on Kindle. $17.01 for actual paperback.
