  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.
  16. You could check out the M/R blades from Van Horn: http://vanhornaviation.com/2016/10/31/vha-receives-transport-canada-stc-for-206b-main-rotor-blades/
  17. Hi Bif, The SB you need is 28-009, which basically tells you to change the start pump to allow you to operate to -15C without fuel additive. I priced the kit in 2015 and you're looking at approximately $15,000 to accomplish this SB. You should be able to download SB from TIPI. Sven
  18. Al will be missed. I really enjoyed working with him in Slave Lake. RIP
  19. In Ontario, you could contact Chris Chanda at http://www.aerialcameraops.com . I have worked with Chris in the past and find him very professional. Not sure if he has equipment, but he could possibly point you in the right direction. We did get some equipment from here: http://www.whites.com , but I'm not sure if the have the entire STC mount or just the Gimbal.
  20. The new H130 (EC130T2) has a certified crashworthy fuel tank. Current EC130B4 cargo hook installation could compromise that in the event of a hard (belly) landing. A new cargo hook system is rumoured to be in development to address that issue.
  21. They are nice looking. Ruedi sold the business to HTSC about 3.5 years ago. I think they had some Enstroms before Ruedi bought the company, but under Ruedi's ownership it's been Bell Helicopter exclusively.
  22. Check Aircraftspruce.ca under the iPad section. Ensure that it's capable of outputting at least 2.1A for iPad charging.
  23. If you guys have a spread sheet program, you could search for W&B excel files that "Saifan Pilot" has posted.
  24. For iPad users on a budget, FltPlan Go works well on the iOS as well. I personally find it slightly less user friendly than Foreflight, but for a free product it's not bad.
  25. Hi Dieselrider, As an alternative you could look at these after market tools. I have no connection with those companies: -http://westernhelicraft.com/tools/as350.asp -http://www.dartaerospace.com/downloads/2014-catalogs (they carry tab tools made by Red Barn) Good luck.
