  1. Canadian Helicopters Announces Renewal of United States Transportation Command Contracts Thursday, October 15, 2009 - Canadian Helicopters Canadian Helicopters Income Fund (TSX: CHL.UN) announces Notices of Intent to Award Contracts from the United States Transportation Command (“USTRANSCOM”) in respect of two of Canadian Helicopters’ former contracts involving support of the North Warning System. Canadian Helicopters has been selected as the “successful offeror" with regard to the Rotary Wing Bulk Fuel and Supplemental Rotary Wing contracts, subject to customary U.S. government ap
  2. Try removing your whole visor set up, use thinner seat cushions, and a minimum of a 130' line.
  3. Don't forget to grab a sat phone (and not a globalstar), and a survival gun, I'm sure GSHL probably supplys these items for machines heading into remote areas. Although the Leatherman is an awsome gadget to have, I always carry a small tool bag that I picked up at Can. Tire, not great quality tools but probably the best 20$ I ever spent.
  4. I thought I would start something on the lighter side of things. I've always had the dream to own my own company, but I kind of figure that the industry in Canada is over saturated with the run of the mill chase the fire types of companies (no offence intended).So I thought I would like to start a company called Helihors, my plan consists of buying a 61 and decking it out with a couple of "private rooms" and a small pub, and as the name describes a few prostitutes, or maybe escorts would be a better word.

  6. I have had the experience to fly both these machines in similar conditions and would take the Astar over the L3 any day. The BA will lift more, fly faster, and is more comfortable than the L3. As far as operating costs go the Astar is probably higher, and this is most likely why the tariff is higher. I'm not certain if the purchase price of either machine would have much to do with the tarrif rates.
