  1. I see an operator in Vernon, BC has their building up for lease and the lights are off.
  2. In the Monashees it is steep and deep.... So deep the guests are complaining. Haven't seen this much snow and rain in the last ten years.
  3. It doesn't really matter. NLC is more heli oriented and BCIT is moving that way as well. SAIT is more geared for Airline or corperate work but has graduated many skilled helicopter folks. (I went there and have worked in the helicopter industry for 16 yrs). Look at the location for starters and where you can afford to live. Best of luck as you start your new adventure.

  12. Nice ride Firehawk. It should be the best, nicest etc. did you even break 50hrs this sommer?
  13. If you are just starting out Sears, Canadian Tire and Princess Auto are your best bets. Snap On is overrated and overpriced. The only Snap on you should by are there torque wrenches. The rest can be bought from other suppliers a lot cheaper, with the same warranties, and just as good of guaility.
