  1. Avgas into a turbine? JK glad nobody got hurt that’s all that really matters.
  2. Exact quote from video “ If you put avgas in a turbine the engine will quit! It will ruin your engine. Not to mention you’re ruining a $400,000 engine but you will potentially DIE!” there’s more on the video but that’s the gem right there. Lol
  3. Hahahahahaha isn’t that how all the real pilots make it in this industry? Personally the Icing video is my favourite and the look of shear panic and terror on his face. Classic! Wonder if you should be teaching students when the first 500 hours of your “career” he had no real mentorship from anyone. I don’t think I would take any advice from anyone who needs a copilot in a jet ranger to longline lumber. On that note not sure if that’s legal either but ah well that’s another topic.
  4. Well that’s true but you can only park machines for so long before the bills start adding up and the phone stops ringing because you have said no to jobs enough times.
  5. I see it’s getting harder and harder to find good people. Looking at companies who post every month looking for pilots and engineers maybe it’s time all us pilots and engineers get together and start demanding what we are really worth.
  6. It’s funny cuz someone on avcanada forum called him out there as well. Hahahaha just don’t get the hint huh.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
