  1. Just wanted to say Thanks for the tips Boy and Gals. Particularly those that reeeally had to work to restrain themselves to not turn this into a temporary foreign workers thread (We're the rohos Bro ...And all these owners and kiwis are the "Mans" ***... Man.) Given that all my dollars are like children to me, I love them all equally and want to take care of them...I'm gonna take the advice offered to investigate to see if the wifes extended benefits will buy me the **** thing. Regardless, there will be one coming and I will post where/how much etc in hope it will help the next. Thanks again for all your input and information. PH
  2. Thanks Hiller. As a germaphob... I agree on used status. 👊🏿
  3. Hola Ladies and Gentleman. Any of you able to share some of your research results? It's a little obscure and I have a full week of spearfishing and drinking out of coconuts scheduled. I feel like I'd be letting myself down if I cancelled to take up sitting in front of a computer to shop. I don't want to make myself cross with me. Anywhere especially known for being "the place" to order? And I suppose, any tips on say, sizes for the 212? (Avoid bigger/smaller than XYZ?) Alternatively, if anyone is forecasting their Nan is going to be, ahem...done ...with hers before fire season... Feel free to PM me. Gracias. PH

    Not Sure How I Feel About This.

    Did someone ask how you felt about it?

    Not to hijack this but... In a somewhat related vein... Unless you want the summer off (and to get to discover what dealing with the Pacific Med department can be like) DO NOT under any circumstances get your medical done in Vancouver by Dr. Shelley Perlman at Cira Medical Clinic, trust me on this! Happy choppering PH

    Dew Line Contract

    Be nice if you could put the shhhhh in Shakey
  7. An open apology to all of you... I sincerely apologize for being daft and having a question. I feel so stupid. 'll try to do better next time. I'm sure that my display of ignorance has been seen as a direct assault on everyone's intelligence and I hope I haven't ruined everyone's long weekend. Pilot5, I do really appreciate the fact that you are not being critical. Thank you. (Coastal... Don't you be daft too. Think Man, think!)
  8. Any of you ladies of gentleman know of countries that accept CDN credentials without a conversion? Does a list exist somewhere? Thanks for your time. (Pleeeesase please please don't turn this into "foreign workers" debate.)
  9. I have done this with a helmet. I had my employer put in writing that a helmet was mandatory equipment and claimed it under the trade person tool exemption. It was rejected as it was deemed to be "clothing." I appealed that and had them see it as radio equipment rather that safety clothing. They agreed, reversed decision and accepted claim. Good luck y'all

    Anyone Know Where Paul Loiselle Landed?

    Okay, that is funny sh**
  11. Still trying to reconnect with Paul. I actually borrowed money from him a couple of years ago and would really like to get it paid back but I don't know where to find him these days. He really went out of his way to help me and I really would like to do the right thing. Thanks very much in advance.

    Suspect Use Of A Machine

    Although i agree, wonder how the "lighten up" suggestion will go over when the pilot uses it in the meeting he's bound to be sitting in with the CP and ops manager any minute now.

    Use Of Illegal Drugs/Alcohol

    My apologies, guess I should have been more clear In answering the original posted question. YES I have seen plenty of folks under the influence of alcohol at work, though always from the night before. And NO I have not seen anyone(with one exception, an engineer) under the influence of any drug while working. However, ater work around the hotel or the camp though and most certainly while on time off...I know a tonne of guys that smoke the green. Pilots AND engineers. Not sure how I feel about testing. I have removed crew from aircraft to go "sleep it off for a few hours and denied flight to many a intoxicated customer

    Use Of Illegal Drugs/Alcohol

    Yup seen it LOTS. Booze and weed. Pilots, engineers and more than a million customers. Of the pot heads, I have never seen any of them actually impaired or under the influence showing up to work but I, like you all, have seen the drunks not fit for flight a million times. Not condoning, not judging, just reporting
