  1. Cadors is a joke. No one reports there any more. I have witnessed accidents and incidents that i have never seen a Cador. The only ones that file Cadors is Government employees.
  2. This is confusing. Great slave decade Bankruptcy 1 year ago. So is this the Old GSH declaring bankruptcy 1 week ago our the now GSH. Date and time of bankruptcy: Date of trustee appointment: Meeting of creditors: Chair: July 08, 2019, 14:28 July 08, 2019 July 24, 2019, 14:00
  3. I have been having issues with some of my Garmin. I have a 396, 496 for aviation and a 420S for boating. All of these units are having trouble picking up satellites. Anyone else having issues.
  4. Cant agree more. The attitude of some of the people posting here is a good reason for it.
  5. This is more likely why it was extended.
  6. There are a lot of entitled people in this industry now.
  7. So did they are didn't they. Is this just another heard from a friend that heard from a friend that heard from another. A press release our something would be nice.
  8. Looks like a prime example of someone needing a breathalyzer on your send button.
  9. Not sure were you get Speculation, hearsay , gossip. I posted the article under another forum name.
  10. Sahtu is having a tough go. Didn't they crash one in March as well. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/helicopter-crash-mackenzie-mountains-1.4756130
  11. Sorry the last sentence should have read a 407 crashed outside of Norman wells last week and not a word on here even though it was in the news.
  12. There are trolls our $hit disturbers on every forum. This topic should have never made it past page 1. My advise is don't engage. Not sure why the moderators don't look these sites when the name calling starts. I must admit this site has gone down hill. a 407 crashed outside Norman wells last year not a word on here even though it was in the news.
  13. EXP88 i never said they feel they are hot shot at 500 hours. What i said as i have seen guys with 5000 that could not longline and guys with 500 hours that could. Twin Helix i think EXP88 answered your question. He poaches from other companies. He doesn't look at anyone with less then 2,000 hours. Let someone bare the risk and cost of training low timers. This is becoming a typical attitude in this industry Then he can blame on customer requirements.
  14. First of 2,000 hours flying tours and to the same well sites day after day does not necessarily make you a better pilot. If you cannot figure out the feel and systems on a machine at 200 hours 500 may not help much. I know pilots with 5,000 hours that scare the crap out of drillers on a long line. I have also seen pilots with 500 hours total time fly a long line that impress’s every one they work with. I have also witnessed guys with well over 2,000 hours that couldn’t think for themselves in the bush. Some operators like to claim 2,000 hours is an insurance requirement. I don’t know an insurance company that will not sell you insurance based on Total time. They will give you a better rate if you guarantee High Total time minimums. Some companies use the high minimums to recruit from other countries. They put out advertisements hoping no one will apply. No applications our unqualified applications make it easy to get Visa for out of country pilots. I wonder how quick companies would drop their minimums if the Federal Government refused all Visa for pilots. The moral why not hire people based on their ability not their hours. How do you expect people to get 2,000 hours and learn if know one wants to hire them until they have 2,000 hours.
