  1. I've heard a few good reviews about the Northwall, but one thing to consider is if you have any plans to work south of the border, the USFS require you to have a helmet that is approved by the DOI, and I couldn't find Northwall on the list here: https://www.doi.gov/aviation/safety/helmet My head is around 56cm as well and I wear a large Gallet LH250 and it fits great. I have the grey inner visor, it's handy if you want to remove the external visor and cover to reduce weight/size to get in and out of the bubble easier/more comfortable. I bought from Merit down in the USA,
  2. https://www.castanet.net/news/West-Kelowna/363483/Vehicles-swerve-to-avoid-wrong-way-car-on-West-Kelowna-s-Bridge-Hill#363483 Probably some dang Aussie on his way to steal a job. THEY TOOK OUR JOBS!!
  3. True enough. Be good to know what others are getting too. Heard of some contractors on 850/day 200/hr. Some employees on 335/day 105/hr. I think robottxt is close to the money there, 1k/day plus flight pay with a guarantee of days would be around where I'd want to start if it's contracting.
  4. I'd be interested to hear the current going rate for a plug and play medium driver.
  5. I've used it on an LH350 and now an LH250. Standard civilian comms. 250 has cep too. Weird you're having an issue and even weirder they won't help you out.
  6. I never have any distortion. I've used it in a whole whack of different machines and never had an issue. One thing I like about the blulink over the lightspeed was when you're making a phone call you don't have to have the ICS active for the person on the other end to hear you. So you can isolate comms and your pax don't have to hear your conversation.
  7. I actually prefer my blulink over my old lightspeed zulu. No issues on this end.
  8. https://www.castanet.net/news/BC/338707/Helicopter-drops-water-on-burning-CN-Rail-locomotive Nice work.
  9. It's more of a pain in the *** folding them than it is just taking them off. Once you get the technique down, it takes 10 minutes with 3 people.
  10. Dunno who you're working for but the guys I'm with have never even hinted at something like that. Schedule has been pretty solid and pay is always on time.
  11. Jeez shakey for someone who hates foreign workers you're pretty keen to steal a local's job in Africa.
  12. Howdy all, I've seen it making the rounds in the past, but there's a powerpoint file out there that has some good animations what your gauges will look like for emergencies in the 212/412. Wondering if anyone has access to it and would be willing to share?
  13. With the $45 postage it comes to around 630 CAD. Just seems a lot of dinero for what it is really but I guess they have the market cornered right now.
  14. Ah nice one. Good info there, cheers. Anyone got any experience actually flying while wearing one? Pretty restrictive on the ol' breath but I guess you'd get used to it. Just did a test fit with my old 3M respirator and it seems to fit nicely under the helmet, but I don't know if the mic will be able to pick any sound up through the exhale valve.
