  1. I believe that only pertained to COVID-19 vaccine medical trials. Currently you are required to wait 48 hours as per the FAA. https://www.faa.gov/coronavirus/guidance_resources/vaccine_faq/ Transport Canada appear not to have any mandatory wait periods. https://tc.canada.ca/en/aviation/medical-fitness-aviation/covid-19-vaccines-aviation-medical-certificate-holders
  2. I don't believe A&P's require a FAA approved type course to certify maintenance on turbine powered helicopters the way TC requires.
  3. This article may be helpful: https://www.wealthsimple.com/en-ca/learn/form-t2200
  4. I agree with Saifan. My RAM suction cup is good for the car windshield but the MGF suction cup is better for the helicopter. (S-76).
  5. You could consider taking the Aerocourse. But you would have to travel to Calgary. https://aerocourse.com/product/atpl-iatra-ground-school/ I found their IFR course very helpful and planning to do ATPL soon.
  6. Iceman, If I zoom in on Norm's pictures it appears that he used AC delco DC24 batteries. They are a 12 Volt 75 Amp Hour battery. If you are working in a shop, I would recommend the Bus or Large truck (tractor trailer) batteries as Heliian suggested. I worked in a shop with the bus batteries GPU setup and we rarely had any problems motoring engine for compressor wash on 206L3 and 407. Remember starter limits. I believe from a starter limit perspective, Bell Helicopter consider this a "Battery" motoring. Good luck.
  7. You may have to go to the manual charts in the FM. See link for AFM supplement for AFS http://donaldsonaerospace-defense.com/library/files/documents/pdfs/075679.pdf
  8. That's surprising. Maybe try these guys: https://www.eurosafety.us/ Please note that I have no affiliation with this company. Good luck.
  9. Who did you contact at Heli Lynx? Try contacting Diane or Matt. http://www.helilynx.com/our-team/
  10. It's April 6th. https://support.garmin.com/en-CA/?faq=zWQY6Z2kFiAuY9kDnDBgZ6
  11. Donie, I was able to download the few links that I tested.

  13. If you are working for a company that operate Bell 407's, you can try to register at: https://mybell.com/bell/en/USD/login The ability to carry 5250lbs is covered in a supplement (FMS-28). Latest is Rev 1. The latest FM is Revision 15 (up to S/N 54299).
  14. There will be a media briefing tomorrow. http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/medias-media/avis-advisory/aviation/2017/a17o0264-20171220.asp Out of respect to the deceased and their families, let's keep this civil. The families are devastated and any mud slinging will not bring these 4 people back. Fly safe.
  15. Nice job GF. Already downloaded. Don't need it often in my current flying environment, but nice to have.
