  1. Always nice to go in your underwear Under the flight suit on the hot days on fires...just saying.
  2. I can’t seem to find the post, cam anyone point me to the person in Calgary that does the moulded plugs for CEP systems? Thanks!
  3. A lot of the HAC companies are part of that organization in order to put their wallets ahead of their employees. Can’t tell you how many times I heard “industry standard” (that they wrote) to justify paying the same prices as 15 years ago. Bunch of crooks.
  4. I have 20 years and lots of experience and I can definitively say that I was woefully ignorant of many of that hazards in the wire environment. I highly recommend doing the course regularly.
  5. Do a wire course. All the hazards of flying low and actually serves a purpose.
  6. Operators are unable to understand what inflation is. Plain and simple.

    The only thing I can tell you for sure it that there is a extensive amount of test to write in the EU and they take a long time. If you have patience, I’d do the US school and convert but I’m also talking with no financial background on where you’re at, and how much time it would take. I’m told that getting into a flying position is easier in the US by far than other places I’ve flown. Experience is a factor I would consider as well. The license is great, but what’s the point if you can’t use it due to lack of hours?
  8. The Chinook puppy mill. The leave there and have never fuelled from a drum or even seen winter covers. Not surprised that they don’t do much on the IFR side. Kids disappointing really, they have potential to be so much more.
  9. I can’t say Ed and I saw eye to eye but I respected him very much. I had a chance to fly with him for my mountain course and it was amazing to watch him demonstrate an approach. They guy to make that JetBox dance! I’m stunned that this could happen. If he couldn’t get out of whatever happened, no one could have. my condolences to the E&B family.
  10. Park it in the bush somewhere and put a lit match in the fuel tank. Then, go get yourself an AStar!
  11. I love how you take the high road and lecture me on etiquette and respect after disrespecting me and my wife. You do you mate👍🏼
  12. True but you can get a hangar with a toilet for a couple 100 grand that can house multiple machines and you don’t have to take a crap outside on the ramp or, if you’re civilized, at the local Tim Hortons! an indefinite small number. "he hoped she'd be better in a couple of days" synonyms: a few, two or three, a small number of; a couple "a couple of drinks" antonyms: several Thought I should bold the word then define it for you. Sure a couple may be an understatement, but if you wish for more accuracy I can hire an actuary to assess your area and get a more accurate number. I could also look in to funding with the bank and compare interest rates and property taxes. I can even go as fars as projecting utilities for the sake of your need for accurate postes on vertical. You must be fun at parties...
  13. Read my post carefully dude. Hope you do better at work...

  15. Only three hours? Sounds like he gave you the coles notes version...
  16. They are for sure but they have the same background as the rest of us.
  17. Who flies the RCMP machines again...riiiiight...civilian pilots!
  18. You’re best bet is to call and email everyone you’d like to work with and go from there. The work you put into finding a job is proportional to your experience to some degree but that really is your best bet.
  19. If the doors are open and it’s failing, you have a problem. You are eliminating the filter from the equation, that means you have other issues. I’ve had a problem with the PowerCheck in the B3 years ago but it’s been rectified. It’s been almost 6 years since I’ve seen a fail due to the filter and I passed with the doors open.
  20. I’d suggest getting to know the current compliment of training pilots. You’re mistaken if you think they’re inferior.
  21. If you want exceptional training on the 350 I’d suggest reaching out to Top Flight in Penticton.
  22. There’s a time and a place 83. This guy has been giving away spreadsheets and very handy mods for ForeFlight for a few years now (for free!). The least we could do is show our gratitude by treating him with some respect. Keep it up SP. 👍
