  1. https://tc.canada.ca/en/aviation/licensing-pilots-personnel/aviation-personnel-licensing-statistics#toc2
  2. Both were wild life surveys. I’m guessing it was LTE at low level at low airspeed just like the Wood Buffalo accident.
  3. Would you care to elaborate? Can’t be so bad as numerous companies use it. Flight Duty XLS was definitely a pain to use and very clunky and didn’t support Macs.
  4. Cirro is the Canadian app for dispatch, flight following etc... https://air-suite.com/
  5. Install a Bose A20 in the helmet, it has both bluetooth and audio input.
  6. Check out also the statistics of the number of commercial helicopter pilots in Canada: https://tc.canada.ca/en/aviation/licensing-pilots-personnel/aviation-personnel-licensing-statistics#toc2 TC hasn't release the numbers for 2021 yet, the number of commercialy licensed helicopter pilots seems to be declining especially since 2015.
  7. Sounds like a similar accident to the one Wood Buffalo (Aurora) helicopters had a while back: https://www.tsb.gc.ca/eng/rapports-reports/aviation/2013/a13w0070/a13w0070.html Hope for a speedy recovery to all.
  8. I agree with jashcroft441 I've also had both in my MSA Gallet, and personally prefer the the Bose. ANR and bluetooth I found the quality to be comparable. I seem to recall I was long lining with door off when I had the Zulu and its ANR didn't work well with the wind, it made more noise because of the wind so I had to turn ANR off. I don't seem to recall Bose having that issue.
  9. Hey I was wondering if you had that lightspeed Gallet LH250 zip file still. I am looking for a little direction for how to install my Zulu2 in my Gallet helmet. Thanks

      Sorry for the late response. I don't seem to get notifications from this forum for some reason.

      you can reach me at my email: Guy@Fisher.Zone

      The install is pretty straight forward. You have to carefully disassemble the ear cups from the headband and also remove the speaker on the mic sidfe in oprder to remove the mic.

      You have two options ofr mic, either relocate the zulu mic to the helmet, that ewill reqwuire a little modding of the mic mount, if I recall I took a large washer and had to file it down on opposite sides in order to accoomplish the install on the helmet.

      I think a better solution would be to connect the gallet mic to the zulu, you can eitehr splice the wires or find the small molex connector that connects the 2 mic wires to the zulu earcup circuit board.

      Remove all the helmet cushions and then use velcro to attach the ear cups into the helmet. you might beed to use a few layers to accommodate a good sealonce the helmet is worn.

      I since then installed my Bose A20 into my gallet, as I had to send the zulu in for repair and had to reassemble it in order to do so.

      Feel free to contact me via email


  10. Makes sense they would try to hide the identity of those trucks
  11. Hey DGP, I bet seeing these photos makes you want to run away screaming. Worse company we ever had the misfortune and displeasure to work for!
  12. Same thing happened on the ship I was flying. company replaced it with Diamond Inc Gauge. Far more readable and cheaper as far as I was told. http://www.diamondjinc.net/bell-407/
  13. Of course you have choice, you don't have to get the vaccine.
  14. if you fly a 206B it's substantial ! If a 205 it's negligible.
