  1. Wayne Although you probably don't remember me I certainly remember you! I was a low time pilot looking for work. I remember that you took the time out of your busy schedule to meet with me at the local Tim Hortons in Fort Saskatchewan. You sir were the only owner / operator that not only bought me a coffee but also offered to buy me lunch!! Although you did need another low time pilot I left feeling upbeat and ethusiastic about the future! I sincerely appreciate the time you gave me. I wish you a speedy recovery!! Our thoughts and prayers are with you! David Ivanowich
  2. Absolutely mind blowing!!! Would love to see how the system nuts and bolts wise actually works! http://www.eurocopter.com/site/en/press/Eurocopter-innovation-puts-the-focus-on-safety-with-the-world-s-first-flight-of-a-hybrid-helicopter-combining-an-internal-combustion-engine-and-an-electric-motor_823.html
  3. Wondering if Ornge has a DOM for the rotory side of operations? I know Canadian is still under contract for the maintenance. If anyone has any info please PM me the details!!
  4. Wondering if anyone here wrenches for cougar?
  5. My most sincere condolences to the families and friends.
  6. Crazy Question. What does a AS350 maintenance course cost if a guy was to pay for it out of pocket? Thanks in advance. PJ
  7. Thanks Guys I really appreciate all your help in regards to types of tools to purchase. The reason my toolbox is lacking is because I currently work for a civillian company that works on a military aircraft....hence the employer supplies tools. I am currently working on building my toolbox as I one day plan on working on a civillian registered aircraft in order to obtain my AME license. Thanks for all your help, keep em coming PJ
  8. Hey Guys Trying to build up my current toolbox. Luckily at my current employer all tools are provided. So my question is what brand of sockets do you guys prefer? Here at work we have a series of proto that seem to work as well as armstrong which I am not all that fond of. I prefer snap-on but seriously can't afford them...far to many loans. I am currently looking at SK and good old craftsman. Any opinions? Thanks, PJ
  9. Thank-you to the kind person who sent me a private message with the names of both pilots involved. I went to flight school with both. Unfortunately I had lost touch with both pilots as life gets busy and I also left the civillian helicopter world. I guess its just a little lesson in life to keep in contact with those who are important to you. Surprisingly one pilot is in hospital a short distance from where I live...I plan on making a visit sometime this week. My prayers go out to all involved, my condolences to the family of the firefighter. PJ
  10. Thanks for the great "advice". Sorry if I am a little sarcastic here. I will be honest I am out of the civy helicopter loop nowdays. The last time I contacted my friend from Phoenix was through this website. I considered calling the guys parents but didn't really think it would be appropriate.
  11. Hey all, Not sure about the report above...is that the pilots name? Regardless I have friends flying for both Phoenix and for Ontario Hydro. If anyone could please send me some names it would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks, PJ
  12. Hey Guys I am a civy working for IMP Aerospace on the Cormorant Helicopter. I was wondering how to go about logging tasks and time towards a license. I have contacted Transport with little help...they tell me to log the tasks and get them signed for the person signing for the work, as for skill or tasks get my immediate supervisor to sign the logbook. Wondering if anyone else is in my shoes....how they are going about logging tasks and what road blocks they are up against. Other issue is are you using a transport type logbook. Thanks for the help. PJ
  13. Was wondering if anyone has worked for them before...flying or wrenching? What the working conditions were like. What the living accomodations were like? Good or Bad. Thanks PJ
  14. Was wondering if anyone knows the owner of a R44 that was flying near Belleville / Trenton Ontario? I believe the machine is privately owned. Thanks. PJ
  15. Hi everyone. Was wondering if anyone knows of any civillian helicopter maintenance out of Borden for the military? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, David Ivanowich
