  1. Something similar... (CH-53E nose gear) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF8xzcanrjQ
  2. You are not getting old. Those weren't loops.
  3. :shock: http://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=56880
  4. Not what you would expect from a guy with a nick like that...
  5. AgustaWestland is making several improvements to its AW139 medium twin, including flight-testing a de-icing system. Dubbed the full ice protection system (FIPS), the optional equipment is intended to earn the AW139 dual FAA/EASA certification for flight into known icing conditions. This milestone is expected late next year or during the first quarter of 2010. http://www.ainonline.com/news/single-news-...-aw139-upgrade/
  6. As the existing contract with CHL expires in April 2009, Ornge is in the process of a Request for Information with Pricing for a rotor wing flight service provider. “Ornge’s decision to purchase our own helicopters is an important step in fulfilling our commitment to provide Ontarians with a world-class medical transport capacity”, said Dr. Mazza. :shock:
  7. Correct. Flammable hydrogen had to be used because of a U.S. embargo on nonflammable helium.
  8. This could’ve worked... :punk: Mil Mi-32 "A project of the heavy flying crane helicopter with a take-off weight of 140 tons intended for transporting civil and military technics in Siberia. Not built. " http://www.aviastar.org/helicopters_eng/mi-32.php
  9. No. Utility and plant patents last 20 years. Design patents last 14 years.
  10. F-WWPA was the first prototype. They probably tested lots of different configurations. Check the horizontal stabilizer...

    Does anyone have any experience with using his/her RRSP (Lifelong Learning Plan) towards some kind of helicopter training? The Canada Revenue Agency site says that the education must be gained “…at a designated educational institution and in a qualifying educational program.” - Is there any flight school that’s qualified as a designated institute? Also, the program has to “last three consecutive months or more” but I’m interested in getting myself an instrument rating, so I don’t think it would take that long. Any info is much appreciated. Thanks
  12. I didn’t want to threadcrap HV’s thread anymore, so here it is. An amazing shot unfortunately with tragic consequences. Also those people in the boat have another birthday now I guess.
