  1. Spoken like a true Helicopter pilot. There is no honor among us thieves!
  2. I feel for you Twin Helix. Most of us have been there. Albeit it at different times of this frustrating ride. The temporary foreign worker program (and holiday visa) created a huge glut of pilots (and people who hate me) who decided to stay. A lot of the people that said they had 2 to 3 thousand hours in fact weren't lying they had 2 to 3000 hours. I had a friend and mentor tell me years ago that he booked a .5 walking by a machine.(He is one of the best guys on a line or whiskey bottle I've ever met) I didn't take his advice and did it the honest way. It took a while but looking back it would
  3. As a guy who has considerably more time. I've paid my dues and do expect close to or above 6 figures. I don't love flying as much as I did when I had 700 hours. So I'd rather run a back hoe for $12 an hour and be home every night. You are right though there is no shortage of pilots especially under 1000 hrs hence the lack of responses.
  4. Not going to bash you. you are entitled to that opinion. But some of the wages employers want to pay for seasonal work are almost unlivable wages. They would be Ok if they where paid all year long. I think you are selling yourself short if you don't think pilots and engineers aren't worth 6 figures or close to it to be away from home 3/4 of the year in some shytehole not to mention the liability (yes they can take everything from you if you F-Up) Kill a doctor hot dogging heli skiing or forget to put a bolt back in properly and see how friendly expensive lawyers are. Then there's the bad medic
  5. but I'm not attacking anyone who doesn't share my views Yeah you kinda are. Now back to steering that bus !
  6. I guess the concept of doing both is too complex for an engineer.
  7. A big problem was the TFW program that flooded the market when they decided to stay. They set the pay scale and tours. Thanks for that Mates!
  8. Well there you have it no further investigation needed the cause has been figured out.
  9. Turn down enough flights and there will be a gun to your head (Career wise) Just a matter of time and you're done. You see it all the time in EMS in the states yet they still have crash after crash because there is always someone that will push safety just to please their bosses. You don't have to agree with me I respect that.
  10. Not to mention the fact Dr. Mazza put a lot of the money he saved on not supplying his crew with life saving gear in his own pocket. But yeah we'll blame the crew on this one Just Looking, SMH.
  11. http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/canada/ornge’s-mistakes-led-to-deaths-of-four-in-‘flight-into-total-darkness’-court-told/ar-AAqTJmO?li=AAggFp5 This is brutal. Some former upper management should be in prison. I'm sure tax payers would prefer paying for that instead of a fine.
  12. I for one love you Old. Also fond of Rotor too.
  13. HeliRico is just mad because he couldn't make it in the industry. You won't have to worry about stealing his job.
  14. Am I missing something here? This guy seems to have life by the nads! Jealousy seems to be alive and well.
  15. We probably have a good idea what your breath smells like after that drivel!
  16. Why would you need to? You already seem to have all the answers for everything ever! Jackoff!
  17. I thought you may have a double account as HeliRetard but your spelling and composition in your last post proved me wrong.
