  1. Billings is working in Northern BC.
  2. They’ve actually only committed to $35 million over 5 years for a 60% buy in. The 2nd portion of $75 million is over a further 5 years and is optional. They will only continue if there is considerable upside as it only provides another 10% ownership. $35 million over 5 years is pocket change in the exploration world these days. Many projects in BC are spending $50+ million per season.
  3. Most Operators tell their pilots if the job is averaged or non-averaged mins before the start of the job. You have a choice if you don't want to do the work. If you feel strongly about not having your mins averaged, just say no! The majority of clients are charged averaged mins. Forestry might be the exception to the rule. I think you will have a hard time proving it is illegal because it's not...its all about how your contract is written. Maybe you need to learn better negotiating skills?
  4. It will be interesting to see what those folks in the aviation business, that are adamantly against the vaccine will do? New career path? 25 days to make the big decision.

  6. Isn’t it past your bedtime on the east coast?
  7. Better to be an Old Fart than a young pilot that is not scared of a bit of weather! Hopefully you don’t become CFIT stat 🙏
  8. I heard this through the grapevine. Any truth to it?
  9. For those that see the need to single out certain individuals in this post and this forum in general, maybe have some empathy for your fellow human beings! It’s easy to sit on your high horse and throw darts, but would you throw those darts if you were face to face with these individuals? I know these individuals well through many years in the industry. Have I seen eye to eye with them on everything through that time? Absolutely not! However, I’ve never felt the need to publicly humiliate them and harass them. Compassion is in short supply these days. I wish everyone the best thr
  10. I received a Class 1 medical on Monday. ECG was done today. My medical had expired and was not eligible for the extension TC is granting. I spoke with Transport last week and they are still processing medicals. Its trying to find a Doctor to see you that is the problem.
  11. Tundra did shutdown for a few years but Steve has been operating Tundra from Dease Lake and Watson Lake for quite a few years...unless he has recently shut the doors again.
