  1. May the light of heaven shine on your grave... an Irish blessing
  2. for the record... a plea of guilty in a court of law to a set of circumstances which more than likely could have been defeated at trial by any shyster wearing armani does NOT constitute perjury!!!! in sudbury, we call it "takin' it on the chin".
  3. mr glass put me to work pumping fuel after i spent 4 days in his reception area (may '81)... "If you aren't gonna leave, you might as well pump gas for us!"... will never forget the photo in the CP's office... a 5 yr old (?) native lad looking up at mr diefenbaker in the middle of a tall grass field with the 206 and CP way back in the background... a very powerful photograph... would love a copy of THAT shot!
  4. that's all good news... let's go flyin' boys!bubbles.bmp
  5. latest Airborne Law Enforcement Association Safety Letter... fyi... http://www.alea.org/public/safety/newslett...0NEWSLETTER.pdf
  6. amen to the good news... we are truly "blessed with the best" in this province with ems crews second to none... working 24/7 & facing new challenges on a daily basis... cheers to you all!
  7. jerry... while ingrid's writing certainly grabs your attention, for accuracy's sake, let's go with the first article you've quoted... the one that provides both a current and accurate record of the court's ultimate disposition in this matter... "Brian Jenner, Quebec, was sentenced to almost $ 7000 fine for possession of illegal moose meat." (nothing more, nothing less) this offence (while definitely considered to be serious) is NOT a criminal offence... it is an offence against a quebec provincial statute for which there is similar legislation throughout the rest of our individual p
  8. I wish I had a nickel for every time I have made an error in judgement...
  9. I can only offer a guess, AH1... we (opp) operate a couple of vfr-only twinstars province-wide and will be NVG capable within the next 6 months... all of our aircrew (all 5) require ifr tickets as a means of providing options should we suddenly find ourselves within imc (per ryan's comments)... our fellow brothers & sisters in the red serge operate in similar fashion.
  10. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Patrick O'Malley
  11. Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. Mark Twain
  12. 19 + single (??) + fresh outta highschool + maths & sciences covered (??) + 20/20 vision (??) = stupid question... why pay for your commercial helicopter licence when our Canadian Forces are looking for quality pilot candidates??????? just an option worthy of consideration...
  13. thanks for the promotion, donny! (just a lowly sergeant/line pilot)... the staff sergeant's the guy that calls me up in the middle of the night with a job that only rcc trenton's properly equipped to handle safely! (we're working on that... nvg is just around the corner!) reader's digest version... don's perseverance has gotten HEPAC airworthy... i simply offered my name up to don back in '03 for the third "director" officially required at the time... once membership starts rolling in, my intent is to step aside at election time for the purposes of allowing a far more experienced member o
  14. rog that, h56! if we truly are what we eat... then some helo drivers should be eating a lot MORE chicken!!
  15. You haven't seen a tree until you've seen its shadow from the sky. — Amelia Earhart Our thoughts are with you & yours... keep an eye on us mere earthlings.
  16. send a pm to invisible... he scored well on it 3 weeks ago!
  17. nipissing helicopters... sturgeon falls... '81 instructors luc PILON (pres/cfi), brian TATTERSALL & harold WEBSTER... talented and patient teachers... undoubtedly scared the zhit out of all of them at one time or another! 88/12 (47/06)... $15,800.00 (alcohol and speeding tickets not included). 90 days in paradise.
  18. Nocturnus Visionus Gogglus (aka Genesis 1, 3-4)
  19. we ALL had to successfully get over the odd "hump" in training... the time element in your personal scenario is undoubtedly lengthening these potential "humps"... the mere fact that you have sufficient confidence in yourself to commit to learning to fly a helicopter (despite the occasional setback) strongly suggests you will be successful... bonne chance...
  20. stupid enough to fly 'em... certainly not smart enough to fix 'em... sippin' on some black label right now in honour of all you folks what fix 'em... so's i can fly 'em!!! cheersh... "I love to sing, and I love to drink scotch. Most people would rather hear me drink scotch." ( George Burns.)
  21. Do not take life too seriously... you'll never get out of it alive. Elbert Hubbard jdp86... apparently, the real CP has bigger plans for you two!! i'll drink to that... cheers! dm
  22. RBC... owed my soul to the company store ever since!!!
