  1. I found fighting fire in Chile horrifying. Between the cowboy ex-military pilots, the sheer amount of blade/tail rotor strikes, and multiple helicopters getting shot up, or Molotov cocktailed......... ever again. A friend sent a photo of this machine laying on its side in a lake, in about 4 feet of water. Being a Canadian registered aircraft, they would have been partnered with a local company, and possibly a South American pilot.
  2. Do you have issues with me?

      Whatever that is supposed to mean.  I am surprised you can remember anything from pizza street. 

  3. Movie filming from a helicopter is a very small industry, and it sucks trying to give a nagging cameraman/photographer his shot. Scanning is boring, there is not much work doing it and you have to get up too early. Drones can have it.
  4. Yes, sorry from me as well, I tried to erase my post after I saw it was a duplicate with no success. I thought I merged it somehow.

  6. Wonder if it has something to do with the the 4 Super Pumas, two of which have tanks......that a bc company has recently acquired....
  7. Crusty....is that Eagle Crusty? Or another Crusty.
  8. I am aware of the flight manual and the checks. What I asked is WHY do we do it at 100% ?
  9. Thanks for a good reply, a few of my coworkers don’t do the check, and/or do it at ground idle as they want to rule out any chance of hitting the gov switch by accident. I personally feel this is wrong, but to each and their own I guess.
  10. It’s a constant flow pump that maintains PSI no matter the rpm.
  11. Having a discussion here, with lots of opinions, So here I go with my first post in years onto the vertical forums!!! Why is it the hydraulic control check is done at 100% vs doing it at the preliminary hydraulic check at ground idle? Other than because the flight manual says so.....? is it because of blade sailing or potential contact of blade and tail? aaaaaaand go!
