  1. Go figure.... Once again I taste shoe laces, but why did you not tell us you were a gal? Ah well so much for standing up in defense of women, I should know better... as I'm constantly reminded. As to your original post. The only time I worked with a female engineer she changed a starter. It somehow came loose and had to be (reinstalled by me in the field) or we wouldn't have got home. Second time was the charm and after inspection and reinstallation it worked flawlessly on subsequent flights. It could have happened to anyone. Cheers.
  2. Hey Tweaker, why female? Why not brown, pink, or blue? And what if the conclusion is that girls are better? You considering switching? Signed, A guy with a wife two daughters and a granddaughter & another one on the way!!
  3. TTF right you are!! but us lowly Long Dog drivers are off the hook... Besides I've already concluded that Incidents and Accidents are one and the same.
  4. So... for those of us flying rotorcraft lighter than 4960lbs. Apparently we are exempt so have at it!!
  5. Merriam Webster defines the two as follows: Incident: 1. Occurence Happening 2. an action likely to lead to grave consequences. Accident: 1. an event occuring by chance or unintentionally. It would appear from these definitions that one is an action the other an event. Event as defined by M.W. 1. an occurence 2. noteworthy happening It would appear that an incident is an action being an act or deed that could lead to an accident, (event) which is actually just an unintentional incident. ie: I unintentionally(accident) barrel rolled my Jetbox which led to my expulsion from my present employer (incident). In which case you should report both to Transport for being dismissed for an accidental unintentional incident. Go figure!

  7. I didn't know you could muster fish with a helicopter.
  8. RELAX it works for your blood pressure... & that other exam :shock:
  9. last time we ran a prunner we lengthend the line as it had a tendancy to throw debris towards the helicopter. Although the design was much different from the one shown in this video.
  10. Fenestron where did you see this rig working? somewhere north of the 49th? My guess is electric over hydraulic. Are those circular saw blades, or idlers for a continuous chain?

  12. Safely back on the ground at CYYC after run-in with some GR. BudDawg.mpg With luck like that the drivers should of stayed home and bought a lotto ticket. Glad all are safe.
  13. Unless they have a split duty day I'm gonna miss my engineer sending me off in the mornings...he's never missed the first start.
  14. I suppose training is only effective when the assesment as to wtf is wrong, is right. Lot of stuff to figure out while your dodging buildings and wrestling iron around in a panic. Training should just kick in and dictate ones response... but it's got to be the right response. It would be great if we were all the calm cool professionals we all believe ourselves to be when the s--t hits the fan...May all your fans be forever s--t free.
  15. If you can find them a pair of army surplus Mickey Mouse boots, paratroopers boots, work well in extremely cold conditions with just a light pair of socks. They are big but fit all the french and N. American machines I've flown.
  16. Enstroms are tough little machines!!
  17. The best way to get rid of them is to become them. A competative force that ensures safety and productivity. So quit your mundane daily routine of flying for a living and enter the fray as an aviation safety consultant.... Why Not? pay's probably not too shaby for a qualified networker. Although employing consultants with industry specific experience is a bit of an oxymoron for the O&G industry.
  18. Long day, a long time ago, heading for the barn with the survey crew all nicely asleep I slow er down real slow and come to a hover in front of some nice big trees before yelling "HOLY $HIT TREES!!!" won't try that again as we very nearly ended up in them when the front seat pax grabbed my arm upon awaking. These guy's were seasoned operators as they all ended up asleep again before we made it home.
  19. Just logged in and whadda ya know a page full of emoticons. Thanks Kyle
  20. Slightly off thread topic but related to last post, sorta. How come I see the following message; (IMG:style_emoticons/default/whatever.gif instead of the applicable smilie? With a wife, 3 daughters, & 1 granddaughter it's CHICK everything in my world...(I think even the fish in the tank are girl's) So girls if'n ya wanna fly fill yer boots!!

  22. Aside from the running battle over who pays for what within the lease, there is zero accumulation of equity. It's better to own part of something than all of nothing so perhaps syndicating the purchase of an aircraft would work for you. Purchasing an aircraft within a seperate corporate entity that issues shares to participants based upon their level of financial involvement..Depends upon your comfort level with partners.
