  1. Anyone know anything about this accident? Hope all are ok! https://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/transportation-safety-board-investigating-helicopter-accident-near-viking-alberta
  2. Hahahahaha technology is hard! The lizard people are coming!
  3. Hahahaha well I guess the world is flat too! Next thing you’re gonna say is that dinosaurs aren’t real either. Oh boy, maybe get out of the sun for a few days.
  4. Tough to do on the move when you have to mark multiple locations in a hurry, pretty simple on the 660 just click the power button and mark it. No need to zoom and pinch or fiddle around. I think the 660 is a superior product that’s my opinion.
  5. I disagree, Foreflight on an iPad is very handy and I use it for cross countries but have been using a Garmin 660 for the past couple years and would never depend solely on Foreflight due to the simple fact that it shuts down when it’s too hot and also when it’s cold. I’ve never had those kind of issues with the 660. They’ve made some awesome improvements on the 660 especially with marking and searching for waypoints which I think it lacked in some of the past models. However to each their own I definitely prefer the garmin 660 for day to day work over Foreflight.
  6. What does slinging barrels or Crosby hooks have to do with a barrel lifter idea?
  7. Hahahaha gooches and call centres go hand in hand, however just to touch on the slow on the line comment. Last time I checked I get paid by the hour not the bucket. I’ll take my time too it’s called job security but like I mentioned in my previous comment you seem like a pretty on point individual. You keep dropping them loads fast, I’m sure you get that quality from a prominent female parental figure.
  8. I do remember matlock, vaguely I was quite young when them reruns were on, I always preferred Magnum PI to be honest he smashed lots of a$$! Anyways you seem like a bright individual and who am I to judge? Seems like you’ve got a great character and even better customer service skills, it’ll probably come in handy working at the Telus call center.
  9. Bwhahahaha so.... if anybody was wondering if this dudes a f@ckin idi0t. I guess here’s your proof.
  10. I see where you are coming from but on that note was there empathy when a certain individual went on a rant and decided to invite random people from a helicopter forum to fight him in his back yard, because someone shared their personal opinion Right or wrong? I can’t remember the exact circumstances cuz the thread is now shut down but then it happened again not too long ago, I believe about a week or so ago when he went on another rant about possibly fighting someone over things that were said, once again over a persons opinions. This is what I’d like to call in the industry “a trend.” I’m
  11. Cowboys win the super bowl with McCarthy as head coach. It’ll be the 90’s all over again
  12. A good read world definitely recommend it.
  13. Well the first kind of work you will start out doing is cleaning the bathrooms and sweeping the floors along with washing the owners vehicle. Next you might be put on some ground crew job if you are lucky and work 14+ hours a day for less than minimum wage. Yo might even be lucky enough to be told “ if you’re lucky I’ll let you fly my machine.” its a junk industry stay away
  14. Yup I would definitely recommend fixed wind as well plus you don’t have to deal with clients who think they know more about piloting than you cuz they fly in a helicopter 3 times a year. Also you don’t have to lug a longline and bucket and all the other ops gear you have with you around on a fire. Them fixed wing boys literally walk around the plane jump in the front seat and punch in their route on the flight computer. They don’t have fuel calculations or have to load bags the just need to make sure to land and take off on the right runway and make sure to wake up when ATC calls them.
  15. Do you like being treated like garbage and cleaning the toilets of rich owners who complain all day about not making money, Pilots being princess’ and how little you know about flying? Well young fella this is the career for you! Be prepared to be treated like junk for a bunch of years cuz your first comment from CSC1 is a rare one we have low time pilots when I am up to 1000hrs and they are still “not people” in owners eyes. Until you can make them money all year round and don’t smack a set of blades you are their personal slave. Over 15 years I’ve seen it all even upper management i
  16. Well ladies and gentlemen here we have a perfect specimen of a “sac o’sh*t.” Absolutely nothing to contribute to the conversation and attempting to bring into the mix their own personal beliefs based on Facebook facts and no knowledge whatsoever. Well simpleton you are an absolute f*ckin nothing male or female.
  17. Can’t message, PM me

  18. Quick everyone to their safe spaces. No jokes allowed.
  19. Looks like you need to install a baseball card into your bike spokes too.
  20. I agree with Rotor, however ask the guy instructing you what it’s like to be on a campaign fire, or in a camp setting, or sitting on a pipeline for 10 hours and you didn’t bring your lunch cuz the client told you he’d only need an hour, two max and now your thinking about eating the rations from the survival kit cuz you’ve been there all day. If he’s never been in one of those situations I would look elsewhere. Anybody can teach you how to fly, but it’s the insights and experience I took away most from my initial training. Also go fixed wing!
