  1. Absolutely nothing to do with it! I heard the company made over 5 million profit after all said and done. Just greed is what it took for this company to close shop.
  2. Heard from buddies that it was a great place to work after their new management team took over. (Ops mngr and CP) been hearing stories that the owners are screwing over the employees now and are just telling people to bring machines back to the bases then lock the doors. I find it funny how the second generation of the family who contributed absolutely nothing and got rich decided the fate of over 70 employees all because they can’t put aside their own personal squabbles. Useless people!
  3. You my friend are a complete f*ck tard. You’re the reason this industry is junk and why ignorant passengers who have no clue about the science of flying feel the need to pressure pilots. I mean by the sounds of your replies here I’d guess you’re pretty ignorant too and have no clue about the science behind flying either.
  4. Greed is what it took to shut down this company! Greed from ownership! Lots of good people lost their jobs because the owners own greed and untrustworthy petty family issues. I know a few people at this company and they flew their bu1ts off this year and told me that the company was in good shape, and had a pretty reasonable year. Employees aren’t even getting severance from what I hear and are being told to hire their own lawyers to try and fight them to get it. Pretty disgusting in my opinion. Some people spent 20 years at this company, some spent 1 and now they are all getting a big m
  5. Anybody know if the rumours are true that highland is shutting the doors for good?
  6. Obviously you’ve been in this industry for about 7 minutes if you haven’t had a client pressure or try to pressure you into doing something that you shouldn’t, like telling you “well the other pilot got us into that spot so you should be able to”
  7. Anyone have anyMore info on this. https://bc.ctvnews.ca/helicopter-crash-in-remote-area-near-northern-b-c-mine-reportedly-fatal-1.5069471
  8. Anyone know what happened to this 412 and if the crew is ok? https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/2/CADORS-SCREAQ/rd.aspx?cno%3d%26dtef%3d%26dtet%3d2020-07-01%26otp%3d-1%26ftop%3d%3e%3d%26ftno%3d0%26ijop%3d%3e%3d%26ijno%3d0%26olc%3d%26prv%3d-1%26rgn%3d-1%26tsbno%3d%26tsbi%3d-1%26arno%3d%26ocatno%3d%26ocatop%3d1%26oevtno%3d%26oevtop%3d1%26evtacoc%3d3%26fltno%3d%26fltr%3d-1%26cars%3d-1%26acat%3d-1%26nar%3d%26aiddl%3d-1%26aidxt%3d%26optdl%3d2919%26optcomt%3d1%26optseq%3d1%26optxt%3dGuardian%2bhelicopters%26opdlxt%3dGUARDIAN%2bHELICOPTERS%2bINC.%2b(10166)%26mkdl%3d-1%26mkxt%3d%26mdldl%
  9. Yup totally agree don’t matter who or what you done in the industry up until now you will always be that dude who tried to be the tough guy on the internet and fight people at a bbq haha haha
  10. Avgas into a turbine? JK glad nobody got hurt that’s all that really matters.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. It’s funny cuz someone on avcanada forum called him out there as well. Hahahaha just don’t get the hint huh.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
