  1. Spill the beans Colin, you love a good rumour.
  2. Wonder if CT is sending out colourful resumes or BBQ invites? Is it time to start a poll on Vertical? 🤔 On a side note, I did get a PM from Harmonic_Vibe... it was his phone number... 🤦‍♂️
  3. Im going to throw out a guess to start up this conversation... The contract will be more than likely awarded to a company or companies that are fairly new to the heavy world, one(s) who have very little experience or knowledge in the operating cost associated with such machines. A company that will justify the low price of said contract by using lines such as ; "we do it for cash flow..." or "our machine(s) are all paid for" It definitely won't be to a company that has been operating heavies for any time, because they know the true cost ! it's going to be just like medium contracts that have been awarded in other provinces over the last couple of years. To sum it up - its likely going to a company that is comparable to fish such as a carp or flounder 😂
  4. Harmonic Vibe is probably looking for a new job, and hopefully it's in a different industry ....😔
  5. I’m going to raise a glass 🥃 for Hughie
  6. It’s unfortunate when things like this happen whatever the case, however this is the nature of the industry. However, after seeing some of the many operators out there these days, I’m surprised there wasn’t MORE incedents/accidents like this. This industry seems to be separated into 3 categories of operators 1-the operators who have solid crews with steady work, pay well and have a full crew being well versed in there jobs (both pilots and engineers).Machine rates reflect this. Training is ongoing and mostly done at a high standard. 2-the operators who have a bit of year round work, pay decent when there’s work, keep a couple of good hands around (both the pilot and engineer side of things). Machine rates fluctuate based on the season. The rest of the crew is seasonal and simply fill the positions. Training is average. 3-the low budget operators who have little year round work, pay decent for a seasonal position. Have the bare minimum crew. Always looking for bodies to fill the position. Machines go out the door at rock bottom prices (the classic “cash flow” theory) Training is minimal. When things get slow it’s down the road for you. Take a guess what sort of operator I would categorize these guys ?
  7. too busy to fin.... get a job OLD! (HUGE HOURS!!)
  8. Seems common enough, Read the employment adds on this forum lately.. Start at the top
  9. Yeah, don't sign one then you won't have to worry about proving it in court....
  10. The part I find interesting with the "E" is the charts that some companies have displayed on there websites, Where did they come from? Whats Bell's take on them? What do they mean? How well will they stand up in court? Personally I like asking the crew on the 212"E" what makes it a "E"?? Cant seem to get a definitive answer.... Just a guess "E" = Enhanced Bull$h!t ????
  11. I agree with S11111, just sent a 296 with the same problem as you to a garmin dealer, $280 and 2 weeks later a re-furbished unit showed up. works good as new
