  1. Thanks for looking out for us twinstar. Thread must be lost in cyberspace somewhere - oh well wasn't important anyway
  2. Is that why my thread of asking about an aircraft in Ottawa was removed? Curious.
  3. Can't remember the cost of it but found some great tape at the hardware store in Ear Falls Ontario while bird towing- the hardware store guy called it hurricane tape. It's probably not cheap but it stood up the best out of all the tape we used - it still looked like it did day one after 2 weeks of 8 hrs a day flying http://www.bunkerinc.com/about.htm
  4. Bug jacket and if there's any wind avoid the downwind side of the machine or any bluilding or tent if you can. That's where the bugs are hiding. If there's no wind and you don't have a bug jacket and you're all out of deet, pray to all that is holy to make the retched bugs go away.
  5. I disagree with hoverintowind and picapart. I often wonder what a machine is doing when i see one. Maybe i haven't been in the indsutry long enough to not care.
  6. hahahahaha that must be the new policide spray. It was late afternoon/evening Tuesday July 21. Saw it again today Wednesday afternoon. I thought it was just a mirror sticking out the front but maybe it was a small camera.
  7. Anybody know who was flying a black Astar or Twinstar back and forth over ottawa today? And what were they doing?
  8. I'd be going back to driving truck provided i could still pass a drivers medical. And if not able to pass a drivers medical then possibly ground operating (spent half a dozen years pilot operating).
  9. and no fixed wing license needed
  10. Not sure if it's an option but i did an instrument rating in ZZB with pro-ifr. 15 hrs in a 172 and 5 in there R22. It was the cheapest way i could find to go and was very happy with them. And being on the coast offered up some actual IMC flight.
  11. First time in 7 years being involuntarily unemployed in the aviation industry. Is it just because it is December or is this what we can expect in '09? Might be time to dust off the AZ licence and go back driving truck. The bright side , i am at home with family for the holidays. Merry Christmas All.
  12. I second that 4961 .... :up: .... come on oopsadaisy you gotta wear the green if you're gonna roll with the big boys now PM comin atchya oops
  13. Don't get me wrong i definetly agree with honouring what you agreed too .... i have my opinion on the tours .... just sharing what i thought and wanted to know what others thought ...... for now i have traded off the type of flying and type of aircraft for a better schedule .... I've payed my gratitude to the same company for 5 years now. Thank you all again for your input.
