    Baofeng BF-F8HP & CHIRP

    BCFS 2018 Baofeng v6a.csv Here's a BCFS csv file for the Baofengs. The way it was setup, there's every duplex frequency entered for each Tone, because it's a pain in the a$$ to change tones on the fly with those radios apparently (I wouldn't know, I use my own ICOM which itself isn't terribly straightforward). Let me know if it works for you!

    Standby, I think I might have just the ticket for you, I just need to get a hold our our radio programming guru!

    New Helmet

    Ok, what's the deal with brand new "users" resurrecting SUPER old threads to post sale links. This reeks of marketing shills... Admins, this is the 2nd / 3rd example of this in the past few weeks.

    The Helicopter Pilot

    Darcy, I don't know if you use Reddit, but there's a sizable pilot community on our little corner of the site there. I'm not 100% sure what their rules are on self promotion, but it might be another good place to get the word out. I don't have a copy myself, or else I'd link it on your behalf... but based on the reviews so far I might have to pick up a copy! Is there perhaps a chance of getting it for Kobo through Chapters/Indigo?

    But is that looking from the top-down or from the bottom-up?
  7. I think perhaps the definition needed is along the lines of: Flight Time means the time from the moment an aircraft first moves under its own power for the purpose of taking off until the moment it comes to rest at the end of the flight and, for the purpose of tracking fight duty, includes any time that the pilot is required to be at the controls of the aircraft with the engines running for the purpose of conducting a flight. This would cover your A to B flights, as well as your A to B to C to D flights, while also satisfying the spirit of the Flight Duty limits, while avoiding confusion regarding ground runs, etc where the a/c was not intended to leave the ground.
  8. Which all boils down to the various interpretations of 1 definition in the CARs. flight time means the time from the moment an aircraft first moves under its own power for the purpose of taking off until the moment it comes to rest at the end of the flight Following engine start, is a skid equipped helicopter considered to be "moving under its own power" prior to lifting into the hover? Is the next time a skid equipped helicopter touches the ground considered "the end of the flight"?

    Must be all this snow we're getting, the forum is starting to look like a youtube comments section again!
  10. Nothing terribly exciting. The company is working on integrating Cirro into our overall process. I'm happy to share our thoughts thus far via PM, if you're interested. With regards to the FDT side of things, Cirro should handle it nicely barring a few issues we're hoping to see fixed. At least it's all in one place and easy to review/audit. Feel free to give me a shout if you want to talk specifics!

    Aviation License

    The way my CP explained it to me, is TC didn't really think through the logistics of everyone's booklet coming due at roughly the same time, so they're getting ahead of the flood by reissuing booklets with the 10 yr expiry before we all hit them up last minute because we're about to turn into pumpkins.
  14. Anyone running an Aera 660 in the cockpit and know how to increase the size of the icons & text? I can see the default text being really hard to read in flight.
  15. I'm thinking with a doctor / physio / chiro note, you could probably purchase or subsidize one with one's benefits?
