  1. You wouldn’t now you say sitting on your computer trolling a forum, but I bet if they told you to pack your bags you’d be the first one trying to come up with an excuse to not go cuz your cousins, sisters dog is having a tough time transitioning between food brands so you probably won’t be able to go.
  2. So does this post imply the old CP was the problem? Seems like a strange post.

    It’s funny cuz someone on avcanada forum called him out there as well. Hahahaha just don’t get the hint huh.

    Hahahaha yeah I agree with simpleton. OTR quit selling your junk if it’s good you shouldn’t have to advertise, the product will sell itself.
  5. I’m not sure if by offering his opinion exactly means he’s trolling. Your post is more of an example of trolling not so much his. But aside from that I would tend to agree with asking for respect and being paid accordingly isn’t a lot to ask. He didn’t mention anything about putting anyone out of business, that again was you. Seems like you’re the type of person who would ride a guy til they are fed up and quit, then says he was a pretty good employee but he should have stuck it out a bit longer. Rather than seeing the value in the individual as they are proving themselves.
  6. I heard lots of good stories from my sisters boyfriends best friends cousin who works there, my personal favourite is one guy swung his tail over a whole tree planting crew, had em scattering like cocharoaches when the lights come on.
  7. If it’s such a good outfit why do they have a year round posting looking for people? And no it’s not so they can get the best people applying like some of you may be thinking. We all know the reason, it’s the same reason you never see some companies looking for people cuz they don’t have high turnover. It always seems to be the same companies looking for people, there’s a reason. Why did half a dozen engineers quit there within a month? Obviously it’s not how dimit is portraying it. Not saying it’s a bad or good place I don’t know, but the fact that there is a thread on the forum can’t be a good thing.
  8. How is shakey’s statement not correct when in the past year key personal and base managers have quit, along with 4 engineers in the last couple weeks. If you are happy with your employment you don’t go looking for something better
  9. Heard there’s been a mass exodus of engineers over the past couple weeks.

    Best helicopter school in Canada right now ?

    Trytrytry whatever you decide to do fixed wing or rotary there are pros and cons to both and I would say in the long run they are both satisfying careers. On that note don’t go to a school where the instructor has never worked in the actual industry and posts videos on YouTube about getting into icing and is panicking like a little kid who just lost his parents in the shopping mall. Or tells people in another video if they put avgas in a turbine the engine will quit and they will die. And my favorite is the one when he goes on a long line job and brings his wife with him to watch the gauges, despite knowing (or possibly not cuz of no real industry experience) that only essential crew are allowed on board while conducting external load operations which means they should have at least a license. Except in some rare cases in certain provinces while on forestry in medium category helicopters a fire boss may be on board but I have never seen this. Long story short go to a school where the instructor has spent some time dealing with clients who are good and some who think they know more than the Pilot cuz they have flown a hundred times.
  11. https://globalnews.ca/news/3180460/helicopter-pilot-opens-up-about-jane-fondas-oilsands-tour-she-was-being-given-so-much-misinformation/ My question is why take only a celebrity and green peace workers when he states he knows most of the senior VPs in the industry, Why not take some industry representatives? Maybe crapping where you eat finally caught up with them. You can’t take people up for flights who bash the industry that funds their medivac machine.
