  1. My favourite, "I probably have more time in these things than you do". 🙄
  2. Flying over glassy water with fog seldom has a positive outcome.......
  3. Nope, very limited information on there now.
  4. With Covid, there are literally thousands of fixed wing pilots laid off right now. I know several helicopter companies laying off aircrew, some all of them, all in the middle of what should be the busiest time of the year. You need to do some serious research, trust me, this forum is not the place.
  5. I never agree with Shakey, but in this case I'll make an exception. The industry is in a downhill trajectory, off-shore oil, seismic, mineral exploration and forestry jobs are drying up. You will probably be too old to ever get into medivac, RCMP, and government once you go through the grind of getting the experience that is required. The only route I see available for you is a base job flying lights and intermediates, that generally requires moving more remote locations. That might be your thing, but you will be on call most of the time, will get relieved occasionally by a pool pilot. But what do I know.
  6. This thread is over 3 years old, so you are now 50. Are you actually really even considering doing this?
  7. I remember when long lining was touted as too dangerous, look how that turned out. If there is a demand it will happen, and technology will improve.
  8. I don't think it's frowned upon, usually it's due to pilot duty times. I don't think forestry personnel want to hang around 24 hours a day either.
  9. Got to hand it Talon, I would have thought there would be more experienced wildfire companies out there.
  10. Well you were a suspect😂
  11. I doubt it, they might have it for SAR though.
  12. Who got this contract? https://globalnews.ca/news/7141471/b-c-wildfire-night-vision-goggles-penticton/
  13. Hmmm, me too. I guess Vertical and its moderators are progressives, who knew.
