  1. I didn't go to HAI this year. I haven't seen anything posted. Just wondering how the show was.
  2. Wow that's crazy. It would be interesting to see how many foreign workers have been given permits to work in Canada in that time frame.
  3. Nothing like being given lessons by someone who has never experienced what really happens in the field. There are still stories my instructor use to tell.
  4. You claim your mins went up even after arguing I believe you are claiming you are a pilot in high demand as your phone is ringing off the hook. So are you a pilot or an owner. I will not PM our say anything to you or anyone else about who is giving leases without mins. Why would i want to do that and have you running around trying to get what they negotiated. Seems to me You are just a right fighter. Is there a lot of topics you reply to that you don't get into with someone. Enough said have a nice day. I will no longer post on this topic.
  5. Then your dealing with the wrong people. Enough said.
  6. I am not advocating for any pay cut. I don't believe anyone should drop their rates. However there are some on here that believe they are owed a living, and operators should do what they have to so they can get their pay check. Most companies not flying do the majority of their flying in the summer. They refuse to drop rates just to keep people employed. Unfortunately the rates and work are not what it use to be. For instance Forestry in Western Canada is waiting until the absolutely last minute to hire. Forestry has changed their mins. When you finally get hired they are
  7. Other than insurance cost's most leased machines these days are power by the hour.
  8. The point is probably the owners would rather go broke parked with something sellable. Then go broke with something they can't sell because they can't afford to fix it. Kind of amazes me how some people think operators should go out and work for nothing a long as the flight crew are not asked to take a wage roll back. If the owners ask for wage cutbacks then everyone gets on the forum and calls them cheap. It's ok for the owners to work for nothing. Just don't ask me to do that.
  9. Well said. zI am sure if the big chain stores would have been closed like the ma & Pa shops this would have ended long ago.
  10. For any of those interested in sining. If you are i suggest you forward to friends and Family. https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-3835&fbclid=IwAR3J95ElzGveMGWT_fjLV4wQiDf-HQlsMOlcxFBX1dePT0OCj28miTaRPAk
  11. Typical Vertical forum users. If you don't agree with what someone says then you start acting like a teenager and get into name calling, cursing and belittling. It sad how many topics on this site go in that direction.
  12. It will be interesting to see what happens in the Grocery stores today when the Government puts out a press release. Grocery store shelfs may look empty but Don't worry and all will be fine. I wonder how many people are in line Hoarding right now. If you could not find toilet paper last year. Good luck with Fruits and vegetables etc that cross the border daily.
  13. Hopefully everyone is ok. https://bc.ctvnews.ca/helicopter-crashes-near-powell-river-b-c-1.5610978
  14. Exactly but as Twinstar said if you don't like it you can leave. Exactly why very little on this forum is constructive. Most have left.
  15. I can't believe the moderators let this thread keep going. There is absolutely nothing constructive here. Just a bunch of people with nothing better to do than TROLL each other.
  16. Everything must be under control. I hear they are letting machines go all over BC
  17. Hopefully crew is safe. https://globalnews.ca/news/7988737/helicopter-crash-evansburg-alberta-wildfire/
  18. You can always leave. Is someone holding a gun to your head. Send your address and we will send you help.
  19. You will also need to include paying WCB in whatever provinces you work. You get hurt or God forbid worse you wont be covered on the company plans for WCB and Insurance.
  20. Typical Vertical. Can never seem to get thru a topic without bickering. No one on this site is entitled to an opinion without someone either putting them down or name calling.
  21. Not sure fixed wing is a great option right now either.
  22. Great Slave was Started by Rod and Allen would. I believe their first Machine was BFH. The worked out of a small hanger in Yellowknife until they out grew it. They then moved into the Echo Bay hanger. They worked closely with Echo Bay helping support Echo Bay 206. Eventually Echo Bay sold their helicopter to GSH and John Buchlandt went with it. John stayed with GSH until Adam started Acasta. I believe John is now there.
  23. With the markets the way they are i am thinking Fires maybe the only hope this Summer. I am sure funding is drying up for exploration and everything else.
  24. TwinOtterFan go and do what your heart tells you to do. Not sure if some people on this forum just need to get out of aviation. I personally love the North. I know a pile of Fixed and Rotary pilots that have spent their whole career flying in the North and still love it. Thank god for these people as the North would be nothing without them. If everyone took DGP advise and left the north there would be No jobs in the South and the North would die.
