  1. Hi, So, when building hours, I would try to get as any as possible. My inexperience would always make think, another landing, another start, another hour! Then I was sat down in my 3rd year, 4 different meetings. 1. Calculating revenue hours vs airtime hours. 5 pilots in a meeting, were all set to look upon the new Canadian handbook, where we were directed to see flight examples, they were given as a 206 type lifting and landing, and running at idle, whilst geo folk collected water or type samples, they returned, and we lifted off. At the end of the flight, with perhaps 1
  2. Does anyone have a picture from this incident? I have attempted to access a photograph to supplement the report without success. According to the TSB report it releases any details about this incident, there were no fatalities. It is a good case study to review.
  3. I have an old helmet, Alpha, it's in rough shape, time for a new one. Is it really ok to have bluetooth and wireless and ANR etc without losing something in the way of flying? My old bucket has CEP's and mine all look like they've been shot out of a gun, I have read that ANR produces hearing loss, but with the use of CEP's it makes a comfortable and safe bucket. Any recommendations for price or product? Google doesn't cut it....
  4. Ah, thank you. I actually wasn't drinking, I just joked, so as to give people who disagree an easy recuse.
  5. The underlying root of our stress, is the same as the other things we ignore daily. Why is the price of oil in half, we pay the price we said we'd never pay at the pump. Ridiculous sums are splashed across the board for tax payer costs, the government shrugs, the prices of every staple in the house rises, no jobs are created, everyone who ever knew anyone who received a social benefit avoids talking about it, but it's a mess. Huge corporations paying giant bonuses to corrupt execs defer taxes that could wipe out deficits. It's a golden age for Corporations. They will never enjoy
  6. I've no interest in starting over, I can take time off when I like and do the work that is satisfying. All the dues are paid, I don't understand the question. Once you pay for it, you want to keep it, I still love it.
  7. Keeping a thing or two to their chests is pretty effective, but now they have an address, clearly a search warrant and found the goods. Aren't the press just a little bit curious about whose house that was?
  8. Those are rather bad jokes. I wouldn't do it again. No. As a hobby sure. Also, it's a bad idea to post after 7 beers.
  9. It would be a great thing to see Transport stop and punish crooked and abusive operators. How can they when the global situation is the way it is today? Tom Clancy couldn't write a more complicated novel to describe the way the industries tie together. A good read, McMafia, by Misha Glenny. More than 20% of the world's GDP is in shadow. Converting jet fuel to noise in the pursuit of metal, mineral, and fossil fuels, we aren't in a great position. I was told to look elsewhere for a career, overall, it's been great, and overall, I'd have taken the honest advice given to me before
  10. Reading through to the end of this thread, on the border of China/Russia, I can grasp what most are saying, though, it seems to me that most are angry. This I get, I'm not so 'thrilled' at the cost of getting here. I know the road, and the ditches, and getting out of the latter to stay on the former, is mostly who you know, or who you rub elbows with at the pub, or the luck of the draw. Sometimes, it's just solving a problem that could have spelled disaster for the company you are working for, or covering for them, that gets you the shot you were looking for, where you are tossed
  11. Worthless to thief, I guess they must have the case solved.
  12. http://www.coolthings.com/xm25-rifle-shoots-at-targets-hiding-behind-cover/ Testing will commence in Afghanistan. We need these zones to further research, like Joseph Mengele needed hundreds of thousands of gypsies to cull twins for experimenting on during the SS regime. There can be no progress making weapons, furthering science, without cruelty to something/someone/somewhere. Like Warren Buffet said, everyone born in North America won the lottery the day they were born.
  13. A lot of what is called conspiracy, is actually readily available fact not denied by the government. We just don't like to talk about it or believe it, because it makes us feel bad. Personally, I suggest that you look at who's profiting and decide where your investment into the market is going to be. There certainly isn't anything being done that is going to change anything. I don't have my head in the sand but I do blush when I read the news, the only thing you can believe is the date. There aren't any leaders anymore, just business men with their own agenda, that's a fact
  14. What model of Sennheiser do you recommend?
