  1. Get a new CAP GEN. There has been quite a few changes over the last couple of years and a lot more recently. Pay attention to every section that has the word helicopter in it. It IS a helicopter exam so anything to do with alternate min's or approach bans will be helicopter specific. ie: no sliding rule. Lots of GPS questions in there. Mine had about 7. Get a current AIM. Sit the aerocourse.
  2. We have HTWAS in the GX and it has to be disabled before every flight or it screams in your ears continuously.
  3. My thoughts are with all my friends there. Hang in there guys.
  4. Who ran the course and how was it? Is there any talk of more?
  5. Let me guess, you work at Eurocopter? And you've been banned from this forum SEVERAL times? JG? (or GG?)
  6. Let me guess... You're the Ninja who works security at the Mall. Can someone please point me towards the 'ignore' feature.
  7. Maybe they're desperate? In difficult situations, some people run towards the danger, while others run away.
  8. Agreed. CBC Here and Now played it on TV right after it was released and neglected to inform the family. I'd expect that from Fox News, not the CBC. There was quite an uproar about that.
  9. What CBC played, was a portion of the ATC transmissions. Nothing from the CVR has been released. Has anyone read this? Ken Armstrong Article
  10. I’m not sure if anyone here noticed or not, but the TSB final report for Cougar 491 has been released. I’m still reading it. Slowly. It’s difficult. Some of the media reports are even harder to read, especially the comments from the ignorant, uninformed, anonymous posters. I’m not sure why our media encourages mass feedback and opinion as I personally find the ignorance repulsive. Matt Davis and Tim Lanouette were faced with an impossible, lose-lose situation. I have the utmost respect for both of them. May they rest in peace. I feel sorry for the all families involved, especially those who think listening to the CVR tapes will bring them closure. I doubt it will. But I do hope you find it. Remember; You may never get over it, but you WILL get through it. I hope we can all learn something from this terrible loss. Fly Safe.
  11. Be honest and up front. They're not out to get you... but they will if you were in the wrong. Good Luck
  12. I can't agree with you guys on the costs of living here compared to Southern Ontario. Sure, in a lot of places here in NL, the housing isn't as expensive. In St. John's however, the prices are, for a lack of a better word, insane. Now don't get me wrong, this isn't Vancouver, but when I left NL 10 years ago, a 3 bedroom house was selling for about $125k. That same house now is closer to $320k. At that price, you aren't saving much compared to the housing in and around London ON. As for the rest of your day to day living expenses, gasoline is $1.10/L. You have to heat your house here for 10 months of the year. Food is a lot more money here, especially anything fresh. Alcohol and cigarettes are more money here. Insurance in general is more money and since everything else comes here via boat or truck, expect to pay more.
