  1. It will get better. Take the good with the bad. Just remember to save up so your able to ride out the slow times.
  2. Saifan Pilot, i've got that same sticker, but i'm unclear on what size it is, it looks to me like it lists 3 sizes, L,XL,XXL
  3. I need to order parts for my bucket. But don't know what size the shell is. Anyone know how to figure out shell size for a gallet?
  4. Found a personal life raft. Looks neat. Could be handy for us costal guy's, flying over lots of water. http://www.switlik.com/aviation/isplr/features
  5. Ment no disrespect to the people that work there, sorry. I'm just not fond of some of the business ethics the owner undertakes. I'll think twice before i hit "post" next time. Hope no one was injured in the incident.
  6. I believe when things like this happen to companies like that its called "karma"
  7. Yes it is true, it happened in the wild horses hanger. fell off the jacks, rolled over and took out another 205 beside it on it's way.
  8. Does anyone here have any experience with a rotorway 600? Wondering what you guys think of them.
  9. This is so, so true. In 10 years i haven't meet one pilot that will stop at 1/2 mile.
  10. I have no idea the workings of VIH. I've never actually heard anyone talk about their rates. I've never heard anyone say good things about them, or for that matter bad things. I get the impression you were hinting at something though? Do tell. It's good to hear that mustangs got competitive pay. Makes things allot better for us bus drivers.
  11. Last season here in Stewart. It wasn't 900. It was something between 900-1000 I can't Remember the exact amount. I would think that seems bad for everyone. But maybe that's the point. From what I understand mustang has made a large presence on eastern canada and done the same thing as well.
  12. It's no rumor. I'm just curious, how many people will go to mustang from vih. What's got me worried is mustang giving away a B2 for 900 something a hour. I don't imagine the pilots are getting top dollar, if the machines are generating that little revenue. Myself, I'm worried that mustang will come in with those low rates, wipe out the local operators that pay their employees well. Cause they are giving away machine's at half the rate they should be at, and then we all end up working at the walmart of helicopters, for minimum wage.
  13. I don't work for great slave but I've worked right beside them, for the same customer, and i get complaints every day about my 5 page thick ticket book. and how great the digital copies are. personal I think we should all be going to the digital one's. they are great. well done, to who ever made it. Now start selling it to the other operates.
  14. What is the best way to transition form light's (500's and Astars) to a medium 205. For a guys with lot's of long-line time, mainly drills.
  15. Who are the companies out there that do daily min's? Seems to be allot of averaging out there.
  16. I looked at getting a ANR kit for my helmet as well, it's pretty expensive though, and I've tried as set of lightspeed's with ANR and wasn't that impressed. There is some neat stuff available online, Tiger performance, helicopter helmet.com, and gibson's barn, all have custom setup's for helmet's. I hear vector aerospace in Langley,BC can build you a nice helmet as well, with whatever you want.
  17. Fly 8Hr a day in a 500 for a summer and we will see if you become a "princess" as well. Or maybe you wouldn't notice the noise, as I'm sure you would be to caught up in "deep throating" all day long.
  18. Has anyone used DB blockers. If so how are they? I'm looking at getting a set made to work with the CEP on my helmet, instead of using the foam plugs. Just looking for any feed back before I spend 300 bucks on ear plugs. http://www.protectear.com/
  19. I'm sitting hear with another drill pilot right now. We both move drills in the Astar and in the 500. What it all comes down to is money and time off. If you want some good people then start paying better and offer some type of shift. I don't know about the others, but i'm not leaving my current job to go somewhere elce and make less money, with more time spent away from home.
  20. Just thinking of jumping ship to Mustang, anyone out there that works or has work for them if you could tell me the good and the bad. and how many hours a year does the avarage guy fly their. cheers, pup
  21. ya these ones from survival-one, are gore tex. and are fire resistent as well.
  22. I'm flying over alot of open water and i'm looking at getting a dry suit. The one i'm looking at is survival one's multifads suit. just wondering if any one as had any experience with this type of gear. http://www.survival-one.com/multifabs/products.html
