  1. Rent it by the hour, or the minute depending on what "F".
  2. I just remembered why I don't read this forum often. H56 I guess you don't use a calculator, just incase it's wrong, or an electronic weight and balance XL program. It's a great Idea, at least it will back up your calculations. Enjoy using your Abacus. Jeff Ryan

  4. Hey L3 Driver, try Weaver and Devor for the action chimos I've got a pair and they work great. http://www.weaverdevore.ca/product_info.ph...products_id/129 Cheers. Jeff
  5. JAD was s/n 18, it was retired a couple of years ago. Jeff
  6. Hey Freddie, we have that machine at great slave's school in springbank. Jeff
  7. The way I look at it is, the pedal is stuck at higher or lower them hover power, and that changes from flight to flight. stuck at 95% and you where hovering at 90% = stuck left stuck at 95% and you where hovering at 100% = stuck right Jeff
  8. The Enstrom M/R rotates the same as a Bell. It looks like as the pilot slowed down he lost his keel effect, and maybe he lowered the collective as he slowed down, if he would have raised the collective the nose of the aircraft should have rotated right, it's possible that the wind was on his left hand side. He did a nice job of bringing it in low enough that even if he chopped the throttle instead of over pitching it he still pulled it off. Cheers. Jeff
  9. Just for the record, it was not a flight school, piston or turbine. Jeff Ryan
  10. Hey Cole, It's still the same two instructors as before. Cheers, JR
  11. Tool bag is a good Idea, I put a small survival stove and bottle with the diesel and jet fuel nozzles in it, the aircraft usually has one but I trust my own. And bring gear for four seasons, you will need them usually in one month. Bring a pair of insulated rubber boots for the sloppy weather. And a neck warmer, just in case you have to long line and the bubble window is a couple of thousand miles away. Cheers, Jeff
  12. One of our pilots has the 396 and the XM radio works for him, in Calgary.
  13. Hey Phil, Your "competitors" books don't make it through the front door at this school. Cheers, JR
  14. No complaint, I guess I just jumped to a conclusion with out getting all the information, what would be the correct term for that, "misinformed" I apologies for wasting your time and other peoples time writing about something I’m obviously clueless about Cheers Jeff Ryan

  16. It truly amazes me how this business of flight training became so mistrusted, It seems that flight training has become a shady business, because of a few people the equivalent of “Ambulance chasers” in this part of the industry. GSHL fly’s in excess of 40,000 hours per year, the flight school brings in maybe 500 hours at a reduced rate, that so appends to be around $ 350.00 less per hour Then our regular rate, and some people out there still think that we are trying to rip them Off. What we need are pilots, not money,(call Bull if you want, but how many machines sat on the ground do to lack of flight crews in the industry last year). It was brought up that the CFI may be building hours, I may not have a lot of hours insofar as the industry goes, but 8000+ seems To be enough numbers in a log book, what I’m still building is experience, and that will never end….. and I do not get paid to fly, I’m on salary. One of my students that I trained two winters ago is at 1000 hours with a HU500 endorsement and an Astar endorsement given to him by GSHL. The rest seem to Be around 600 hours. So I understand that you have to be careful what you spend your money on but To question the motives of a company that do not advertise their flight schools Seems ridicules. GSH need pilots with Bell 206 time, that’s why we use them at the Flight school, do we lose potentially great students with our prices, yes! I keep the classes’ small (five to six students) so that the students have an excellent chance at getting hired, and yes it’s based allot on work ethic, is the job guarantied, NO, no one guaranties a job at the end because you have no Idea who your students Are until the end of the course, even though there is an interview process to get into the School. The debate started with what do you think of GSHL’s flight school, if you honestly think poorly of the school then say it, but if you have no Idea about the school then leave Great Slave out of the debate on turbine verses piston time. And W squared you may not run into to many of our former student on this forum, We do not pump them out the door like some of the other schools, but I’m sure if They are out there they will PM you. So in the end even though there are no guaranties of employment, the chances are rather high that you will get hired, and then it’s up to the graduate to keep there job. GSHL like other companies are aware that the industry is going to need pilots, that is why they started a school to train pilots to hire them. Cheers, JR
  17. Number three left yesterday, and then there was one.
  18. I have the hush kit and the ANR together, works great, the ANR would flutter with the doors off in a HU500 with your head out the door with the gell ear cups, I put my hush kit ear cups back on and the flutter went away, I've used it in a mediums and in pistons they work excellent, if you buy the hush kit make shure you buy the corect size, if it's to thick your ANR will not work properly, I also hooked up a 9.6 v RC battery to my ANR, It's a bit big but It last a long time, the ANR works really good in a piston machine also. Cheers JR
  19. on top of the normal tools, I like to bring, - my personal MRS survival stove & small bottle (when was the last time the one in the A/C was tested, and did the pilot before you even bring it.) - spare socks in a sealed bag, plus two spare bags for your boots if they get wet. - signal mirror and a compass. - space survival blanket - pip pins - flint and steel.
  20. Looking for a good sim for a flight school, Budget is in the area of $150,000 American. Any Help is much appreciated. JR
  21. Hello Kyle, The AME route is the way to go, once he is done that he will be old enough, or at least look old enough to get a job as a pilot. Cheers. H.
