  1. I know this subject has been beaten to death, but given the new market situation I think it is just fair to have refreshment discussion on drivers rates. What is the contract rate per day for a 212 F.O. IFR ? Same as above but for a Capitain? Thanks!
  2. Hello I am a canadian 3000 hrs pilot, IFR, night, ATPL, endorsed on BH206, AS350 and BH212. What companies are there to get into IFR flying?, besides the big names, like Cougar, CHL and Ornge, is there any others wit regular scheduled rotations? National or International Thanks
  3. I wished I could find a less tedious tour than 4-2, but that is what I have been doing for the last 12 years... I make somewhat more than 100K but the cost of 4-2 is pretty high
  4. Hi I have been toying with the IFR idea por the past 4 years and since I am 41 now, I think it is now or never. What IFR schools do you guys recommend in the Quebec, Ontario area? Thanks JM
  5. Thanks, exactly the same questions I had in mind
  6. 4 hours min?, last time i saw something like that was in 2005 if I remember well. Here in the belle province, we get 3 hrs min during the busiest season, got to say that we are busy ...
  7. From the pics, the 350 looks like it would be possible to use for long linning with the astar, I own the 250 and can't long line with it, the front and top of the head are too tall
  8. Wake up early to find this weather....... hard to go back to bed after a couple of strong coffees
  9. $55 a month, 200min during the week days, free from 8pm and weekends. 6gb data, took a special promotion last year, 6gb for $30 with Bell
  10. Hi Does anyone have some practice or sample Hatra exams? It'd be greatly appreciated.
  11. Isn't 18" the min legal barrel lenght?
  12. Hi can someone please inform me about the difference between the ATPL-H and the HATRA exams, and also where to get study guides for either one of those exams, i have googled both but little info has turned up. Thanks J
  13. Hi Can someone please give me an idea of the price for a 100ft spectra long line, for AS350B2?, our lines are all steel cable. I would like to try to get our company to buy spectra or kevlar lines. Thanks
  14. I bought my Gallet from Merril Aparel, 2 years ago, they shipped it to me and I am a very happy costumer. Very confortable helmet, and the service from Merrit is escellent
  15. 28-14 but I travel during the working days, so I guess a real 28-14
  16. Not exactly. What I am trying to look for is a website for aviaton weather in the USA, I have to fly tomorrow cross country and have to fly over Maine for about 45 min, so I was trying to check the GFA over there....
  17. Hi I am about to order a Gallet 250 Helmet with two visors, one yellow and one "black". Well the person that will order the helmet for me asked me if i wanted the yellow visor one the outside or on the inside of the helmet, and consequently the black visor.... I heard the yellow visor for low vis sometime distorts the vision a little so it is better to put it in the inside slider of the helmet that way it would be closer to the eyes causing less distortion.... Does anyone has any experience or advise with this helmet and where to put each of the visors....it is the first time I am buyin
  18. Hi Anyone working in the reserve? I would like some opinions about it, how it is, what kind of flying do you do, etc... all the info you can give is greatly appreciate it JM
  19. To answer my inicial question, I just finished my training on the R22, (70+) hours, going to the R44 for 20hrs and then 10 hrs B206. Well the training on the R22 has been most satisfactory, I am at 210lbs and the intructor about 175 lbs, we could go out 1.5 with no problems, great to simulate a really laded machine to the max, due to the R22 lack of power, had to pil0t her with a lot of finesse. So the R22 can take up to 240lbs per seat but don't expect to fly more than 1 hour at that weight.
  20. Sharky you are right, it was a Universal AS350, luckily the pilot walked away uninjured. Here is the report: Record #4 Cadors Number: 2007A1380 Reporting Region: Atlantic Occurrence Information Occurrence Type: Accident Occurrence Date: 2007/11/22 Occurrence Time: 1331 Z Day Or Night: day-time Fatalities: 0 Injuries: 0 Canadian Aerodrome ID: Aerodrome Name: Occurrence Location: 80 Nautical Miles Northwest of Goose Bay (54:36 N, 061:01 W) Province: Newfoundland and Labrador Country: CANADA World Area: North America Reported By: NAV CANADA AOR Number:
  21. I heard there was another crash in Postville about 3 days ago, an Astar lost its hydraulics. Is it true? I have had no confirmation about this incident.... J
  22. Hi I have a Bose headset with noise reduction system that I really like. I am looking at buying a Gallet helmet, but would like to know if it is possible to integrate the Bose avionics into the Gallet helmet. Anyone has any experience with this setup? Thanks J
  23. Anyone know a source from where to buy transport boxes for FDC filter for Astar intakes? Thanks JM
