  1. Aviation License

    Did the unsolicited ones just come with the same picture as the last one?
  2. What are your thoughts on this crash

    I’m pretty sure there’s a a video of that same accident filmed from inside the machine and you can hear the low rotor horn blaring for most of the short flight. I’ll post it if I can find it.
  3. A sad story for sure. I’m glad that the TSB is releasing informations so quickly. It amazing looking at the aerial map that they could find the tail rotor skin, the bag and the carribeaner in such a large area. Also im wondering if the rear passengers would have survived if they had been buckled up. Looks like they may have had a slight chance judging by the photos. ‘Shortly thereafter, while the pilot was attempting to land, the helicopter departed from controlled flight, all 3 passengers became separated from the helicopter while it was still airborne. The helicopter subsequently crashed nearby.’ this part of the report is particularly disturbing

    When I flew jet rangers I was taught not to fly lower than 20 gallons but only because that was your 20 minute reserve with 10 gal unusable with failed boost pumps. Which should be a 40 min reserve with boost pumps working. If I flamed out at 20 Gal or even 15 gal I’d be pissed.

    I would say that flying out of trim is very applicable and a major factor in fuel unporting.
  6. Sad News

    http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/pilot-dead-passenger-injured-in-campbell-river-area-helicopter-crash-1.23053223 looks like the deceased female was actually the pilot in command and not a passenger as was previously reported. No name released yet but I’ve heard through the grapevine and she was a pretty well respected pilot in the industry. Condolences to friends and family Both occupants were licenced pilots though. Training flight maybe?
  7. Accident

    Any pics? Explanation?
  8. Can't you just pay to get a PPC at a flight school? Surely if they're authorized to issue commercial licences they should be able to issue a PPC? I dunno. A quick phone call could clear that up.
