  1. The Vertical forums are meant to provide for open discussion and dialogue. However, recently certain individuals' posts have sunk to all-time lows. This includes the impersonation of other individuals and fraud. In one case an individual went so far as to post a fake job listing for a company, and impersonate the individual that works at this company. This is libelous and will not be tolerated. We continue to investigate these posts. The individual(s) WILL BE identified and their names and contact details provided to company lawyers for further action. Vertical originated from Ca
  2. ""Ordering a Pizza in 2021"" CALLER: Is this Pizza Delight? GOOGLE: No sir, it's Google Pizza. CALLER: I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry. GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Pizza Delight last month. CALLER: OK. I would like to order a pizza. GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir? CALLER: My usual? You know me? GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.

  3. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/12/28/2020-28385/airworthiness-directives-sikorsky-aircraft-corporation-helicopters A long read, but worth the time, possibly an answer to the modified S92 operated by DND, stress on the tail boom in the tight turn for landing. Only the Shadow Knows and the idiot that requested a fly by. Don
  4. Truth hurts, get sometime in. You dont seem to be doing much flying as you have more time telling people on this site how great you are and how stupid every every one else is. You do not provide anything worth while to this site, so take some time off and get an ULTRA SOUND to see if there is an actual brain working and all the brain cells are really functioning, from what you are posting they dont seem to be. Get help and possibly you can become a good person. Cheers and say hello to the Doc and tell him I sent you. We will communicate again when you are better.
  5. This for Super Pilot,(in his own mind) seems to have pedophile tendencies. If you are so smart and able to do anything, as a legend in your own mind, why not do the following: Assuming the loggers take their lunch with them, why not load sleeping bags on board, and should the weather get worse, they can stay overnight. That way, should the weather be clear, the next day you can safely go and pick them up with out any problem. Watching your video from takeoff to landing you were over water most of the time, should you have an engine out, you would have all drowned. The
  6. This paragraph is as old as me (86). I had a customer on a production job say I was OK but then proceeded to tell me about the fastest most talented pilot he ever had doing the job. I asked the customer why isn't that guy flying you now, his response... "well he crashed and killed himself flying". In questionable weather and haze that you can get in the summer months, you should not be any more than 500 ft. AGL, that will give you an out, to do a quick stop and reverse course. I personally got caught in that situation and almost flew into a thunderstrom. Landed, waited and the
  7. Hi , whoever you are. I had spent the last three months with the Doc in the Ogaden Desert (Godie) vacinating the people and kids as required, I even gave vacinations myself, put the serum on the shoulder and prick it into the skin with a needle. The grown ups were no problem, the children developed large scabs on their arms and very few survived from lack of nutrition. I also went into Somalia to a mountain hideaway called Ei KERE to rescue a bunch of nurses who needed help. Once back in Addiss, Jean Paul took of for Paris and I followed later and met him there and he told me t
  8. ck 1 Pandemic (S) 11:08 PM DONALD MCDOUGALL To Editor- North Grenville Times Dear Editor, People, including myself, have probably done some research on the above subject. World Health Organization, recently released a paper congratulating themselves on a job well done on the 40th anniversary of the elimination of SMALLPOX. This was
  9. You should have taken the Airbus course that Johnson took and found out if you liked it or not. https://www.verticalmag.com/features/taking-control-airbus-non-pilot-emergency-landing-training-course/?utm_source=vertical-daily-news-top-story&utm_campaign=vertical-daily-news&utm_medium=email&utm_term=top-story&utm_content=V1 I wonder how good the course is with single pilot controls and only two seats in the front of say a B206 or Astar 350, and why the landing under ideal condition on an airport runway, I would have used the grass on the side of the runway, easier slid
  10. I guess I made a similar mistake, by questioning the the reasoning behind Elan Head article on spatial disorientation, great article which is normally taken in kindergarten, it sounded more like she was trying to justify the stupidity of his actions, which resulted in the crash. If people would only use common sense instead of the I am the GOD principle and I can do anything. FUNNY the comment was never posted, which is not the first time. Whats UP.
  11. Torque Split The main problem is DND, it was a problem from Day One on the Cyclone with the magic box. I would like to know who authorized the FBW, because it was not required for submarine warfare as indicated by Flying Head, it was an added cost to the taxpayer. Was DND involved in a little patronage with Sikorsky as is Bell Helicopter with the sole source contract to refurbish the Griffon 412. Personally, I think the RCMP should have a look see at some of the going ons in the WardRoom with the Generals. But, again the RCMP have their own problems and WHO CARES, i
  12. On 20/06 I actually had an attachment to the statement by FH on the Sikorsky 92 (Cyclone), and his statement raises the question, why does the Military have to have a FBW helicopter, when a perfectly equipped commercial helicopter, carrying passengers,with a standard auto-pilot and flight director to the offshore oil platforms on a regular basis. I am attaching an article from AVweb magazine that explains what the Generals in their enlightened way were trying to achieve. https://www.avweb.com/aviation-news/fly-by-wire-helicopter-military-pilot-had-conflict-before-fatal-crash/ La
  13. Did anybody notice how easy it is to plagiarize information from Vertical and post it as their own source, CBC is trying to sound like they have an in with the Military, for their information Vertical has more flying hours in helicopters by its members than the Military will ever achieve. In the commercial flying world, accidents that do happen are covered by Liability Insurance paid for by the operator, for passengers and aircraft. Should the Insurance company cancel the operators insurance, he loses his operators licence, out of business. The Canadian Taxpayer is the Owner of any
  14. I could be wrong, but, didn't Boeing 737 Max 8 have a similar problem, in my book it would be called insufficient training on type, including all emergency procedures. At one time a/c were equipped with auto pilots that had to be controlled by the Pilot, nowadays, if the computer chips get into an argument, they crash the Aircraft. There are not to many Pilots that I know off that would intentionally do that. So the answer has to be in the lack of training and computer science. Boeing Aircraft are re-training (all) pilots on emergency procedures and how to overcome the co
