  1. If your going to be a slave, at least be a great slave.......

  3. " normal IA type VFR bucketing operations at 10 or 12 in the morning is frowned upon by most fire fighting agencies that I know of"--- Fixed it for you
  4. 2020-06-03 Narrative: TSB Report #A20P0019: C-GMPN, an Aerospatiale AS350-B3 operated by RCMP Air Services, was conducting policing activities 24nm SW of Houston (CAM5), BC with 3 persons on board. Also operating in the area were two RCMP operated RPAS units. During low level flight (below 300 feet AGL), the helicopter and 1 RPAS (FLIR SkyRanger R60 - 2.4 kg) collided. The helicopter suffered some initial vibration and the pilot completed a precautionary landing on a road without further incident. Maintenance staff found damage primarily to the main rotor blades along with superficial damage on the tail boom and tail rotor. The effected components were removed as per the maintenance manual for repairs or overhaul as required. The RPAS was destroyed. There were no injuries to persons in the aircraft or on the ground.
  5. Spotted Tom Joad headed east in his jalopy 204, says they'll hire anyone looking for work, .10c a day.
  6. Does it take a pandemic to start dropping water on a fire before 2 in the afternoon, and running rank 5 through the tree tops.
  7. Flow chart below: Is this the last day of your tour? Yes/No Yes: put in logbook No: continue flight
  8. Dryden's field of dreams always has room for a few more mediums........
  9. Filemaker is probably the cheapest custom solution you could do. Filemaker's owned by Apple and has been around a very long time. Good software isn't free.
  10. The problem with VFR heli is simple. Once you get 1000+hrs longline and mountain experience, thats it. Fires are fires, drills still suck a heli-ski 1/2mile gets old. A bigger aircraft isn't always better either or even pay more. Good companies are few and far between and the pay tops out really quick. Fixed wing at least has progression in your career and larger companies are professionally run.
