  2. Thanks, it looks like he doesn't log in very often.
  3. Does anyone know who Nozzle is? I sent him a PM about a Tru Tach that he has for sale a few months ago and no response. Thanks
  4. PM sent on the TRUTACH

  5. Just completed mine......the ACH exam is no picnic
  6. TAWS would not be feasible or practical in a VFR helicopter. The logic it uses to provide warnings would mean that anyone doing normal VFR helicopter ops would be triggering it continuously. Now TCAS is a different kettle of fish and that would be a very useful tool in a high traffic environment such as a fire with numerous a/c working it.
  7. Ibal is great little W&B app for Iphone and Ipad. The developers are very accommodating about adding/customizing specific a/c types.
  8. Holy crap, how old is Fred? I worked with him in the late 70s' at Liftair and he was an "old man" then Best of luck Fred.....enjoy, you have earned it :up:
  9. OK Swissmatt, I miss understood your question......typical for a homo
  10. You have the option to setup any "limits" you want on LTP. Such as "Duty in 7 days", "Duty in 28 days", "hours in 7 days", etc, etc. then in the "Radar" tab, it will show you how many hours remaining before the limit. You can customize the colors to show yellow at one stage and red at another. LTP is completely customizable to fit your specific regulations. Go to their website and have a look at the tutorials. I am the slackest guy when it came to keeping my paper logbook current, was sometimes many months behind. Now with LTP on my Iphone, I enter the times as I fly them as it is so easy. LTP is not cheap, but you get what you pay for.....money well spent.
  11. Oh it came off because of the crash.......
  12. You do realize that the a/c being re-registered will not be flying in Canadian airspace and will not be operated under a Canadian AOC. I think you are confusing the matter. This has nothing to do with a "tax dodge", at least in CHC's case. They are simply abiding by the law, if they can not legally hold an AOC in Canada then they must operate under an AOC (and register the a/c) in a jurisdiction that allows them to do so.
  13. That is my understanding of the reason for the move to Cayman reg. That's true, but I would think that Sylvan will be chasing other work in Canada.......
  14. All true, but unfortunately the law does not agree. CHC had to restructure and form a Canadian majority owned company to continue operating in Halifax (CHC Canada ltd.) They also have had to re-register any Canadian registered a/c operating in foreign lands. So I would suppose that if the law is to be applied equally, then Alpine would have to make some changes to their ownership structure as well.
  15. Absolutely right, and I don't think anyone is debating that. However, if I patronize a restaurant and I am unhappy with the service, should I a) say nothing and vote with my feet, or b ) voice my concerns to the manager so he at least can make an informed decision on his business practice. I would hope Mike would prefer people tell him if they are dissatisfied rather that just one day wondering why no one is visiting the site any longer. Well I guess it would depend on your definition of "public"
  16. Mark, I have to side with the rest of the above posters on this. I agree that as a moderator you could possibly have deleted/edited or warned posters who flame individuals, but if you are going to remove entire threads that criticize individual companies, then you had better remove the C+ and Ornge threads. In both of those (and many others) people made criticizing remarks about operators.
  17. Yeah, you might be right about that Deuce
  18. Was wondering if anyone has any info on Jack Leroux, an engineer that, last time I seen him he was working for Liftair out of Calgary in the late 70's. I remember Jack introducing me to radio controlled airplanes while we were crewing a 500 out of Fort Mac. I always remember his favorite saying "ya flippin snake".......
  19. I believe, but could be wrong on this, that HNZ and Cougar are joint partners in the company known as HNZ (Australia) or Helicopters Australia. If that is the case, then I suppose it means that now CHL and Cougar are the two partners in the Australia division....
  20. I can highly recommend Logten Pro, although it is Mac only.
  21. Actually T/R and windshield are anti-ice, M/R is de-ice. There is a difference
  22. You missed the last part of that quote. Naturally those pilots not employed by CHC Global would not be included.
  23. There is a fellow in Australia who has made up flashcards for the Iphone for a number of a/c. Great for brushing up on limitations, etc. Here is the website: http://www.flashaviation.biz/
