  1. "crapping in a plastic bucket at -40 in the Arctic sucks too." this task alone should get you another $20 per hour for that tour.
  2. lots of places to get paint done....i guess the question is, how busy are they, and how much prep work do you need? and the best question of all, is how good will the end product look?
  3. it does, but its limited at best. its not the cadors of the past. i think companies can petition the publishing of their oopsies now. this is the reg details of his aircraft. RIP and hope the other kids get the support they need https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/2/CCARCS-RIACC/ADetHis.aspx?id=1399028&rfr=RchHsRes.aspx?st=2&m=||&cn=||&mn=|R44|&sn=||&cnn=|BAR 71|&tn=||&ln=||&fn=||&rfr2=RchHs.aspx
  4. Im not sure if thats correct. overpayments or ineligibility require repayment, but i dont believe any thing gets paid back on a legitimate claim. there would be no point to the program if that was the case.
  5. "I think I'll just let some of you be the lab rats and I'll sit back for a few months and watch." like you have the option to decide. you're likely months down the road in getting it just like every other common citizen.
  6. this kit has the option tailboom folding hardware as well.
  7. troll or not, everyone starts on a forum at some point. paint doesnt help you fly either FYI specifically are you referring to the finish paint? like whether its a pretty blue helicopter, or a bad *** black one? I personally have a soft spot for yellow ones. Its all covered in the aircraft manufacturers documents. I dont feel that TC needs to micro manage the color you paint your helicopter as long as you follow the manufacturers recommendations for initial application and repairs during its life. Airbus specifies all of this in the MTC's. TC has already approved the aircraft f
  8. FWIW their 412 is working the fire in penticton
  9. I drove through Dryden today. I'd rather move there than High Level.
  10. ive had my own company for 5 years now. its a constant learning experience...just wish I had a more personable accountant. someone who could help me more.
  11. this could apply to any company at the moment across the country.
  12. ive heard, but i have nothing to confirm.
  13. i'd change that air duct and zip tie while you're at it too
  14. i see the benefits of attacking a fire when its in its decay stage, cooling at night and slowing in its progression, compared to the heat of the day where it aggressively expands and grows and you watch from staging as there is no amount of water available to keep those BTU's under control. but i also see the higher risk. Approached properly with the right plan, I think Talon is leading the way on this, it will be a good thing even if it is only one tool in the tool chest to be used against a fire. taking a manageable risk and using it to your advantage is something people in
  15. the only way to rid this country of trudope is to ban women from voting. they vote based on this : not actually on anything worthy of running a country
  16. I dont think the surfers need any help being put in harms way...
  17. the only way to end problem pilot behavior is big fines and heavy enforcement. right now it seems they are handing out bigger fines to little johnny and his birthday gift drone, then they are giving to pilots for flying over people. I'm sure you drop more on lunch with the boys, then you would get fined for something like this. what happened when you got "caught" in PRNP last time? im not a Karen, nor am I a snowflake, but i personally think the skirt thing is a bigger dick move than flying over some Truedope surfers. let us know what happens.
  18. the footage from the drone of the collision would be interesting to see.
  19. im trying to wrap my head around what they are saying... semi autonomous mode ? pilot punched in manual commands? the helicopter software did not recognize the pilot's instructions and chose to ignore them ? what kind of AFCS design is this? or better yet, what kind of double speak are they trying to sell us?
  20. I googled this..."retired Colonel and former SeaKing pilot as well as the former Commanding Officer of 423 squadron" and came up with this. I hope its the article he refers to. https://www.capebretonpost.com/news/local/expert-cyclone-pilot-likely-tried-to-correct-problem-chopper-didnt-respond-460621/
  21. https://ca.indeed.com/jobs?q=drone pilot&l=Canada&vjk=5b26e3929a9328c6
  22. do these "leaks" leaks hurt the reputation of the military? or do they put the lying CO, or the MP who speaks for them, in a precarious position about transparency? IMHO, its obvious who is hurting the reputation. and it's not the witness' or the retired guys. Sajjan needs to go.
  23. "the aircraft did not respond as the crew would have anticipated" is this information recovered from the voice and data recorders? if it is, they should be clear on that. if it's an assumption, then they shouldn't be publishing that, because its not fact. but it follows the typical form of information release, misleading and redirecting.
