  1. So I hear that CHL is going to a full contractor model for the staffing of the NWS aircraft, including making internal staff who want to work up there to quit - just like their Afghan model. Also hear that pay rates are down 30%. So - what are they paying for PICs and FOs - there must be pilots on this thread who have applied.
  2. Heard a rumour that an operator put an aircraft into Contwoyto Lake .. truth? fiction? Anyone know? Anyone hurt? S/M
  3. Want to resurrect this a bit: Anyone out there using PLASTIC drums for drummed fuel? It seems there are some fuel caches down east with these drums. Personally, I've never seen or used plastic drums for Jet A. any special bonding issues? I know that these drums need to be certified per the TDG regs ... Feedback is welcome. S/M
  4. Well ... I believe that the initials of the new owners are: GC and JD. All the best to Grant ... S/Man
  5. There's no denying this can be done correctly, but.... http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/tdg/clear-part5-300.htm#sec512 Classes 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8 and 9 Dangerous Goods 5.12 Small Means of Containment Beginning on January 1, 2003, all small means of containment used to contain dangerous goods included in Class 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8 or 9 must be UN standardized means of containment. For small means of containment manufactured or marked in Canada, this is achieved by compliance with CGSB-43.146 or CGSB-43.150. These are the Canadian standards for UN means of containment for dangerous goods inClass 3, 4, 5. 6.1, 8 or 9. Non-UN means of containment, such as TC or DOT specification drums made before 2003, may be converted to the UN standards if they meet the requirements in CGSB-43.150. (1) A person must not handle, offer for transport or transport dangerous goods included in Class 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8 or 9 in a small means of containment unless it is a UN standardized means of containment selected and used in accordance with sections 2, 3, 12 and 13 of CGSB-43.146 or sections 2 and 3 of Part I of CGSB-43.150 and sections 12 to 17 of Part II of CGSB-43.150. SOR/2011-60 (2) A person must not reuse a steel or plastic drum with a capacity greater than or equal to 150 L to handle, offer for transport or transport dangerous goods that are liquid and are included in Class 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8 or 9 unless SOR/2011-60 (a) for a steel drum, the requirements for the reconditioning, remanufacturing and repair in Part II of CGSB-43.126 are complied with and the drum reconditioning, remanufacturing and repair facility is registered with Transport Canada in accordance with the requirements of Appendix A of CGSB-43.126; or SOR/2011-60 ( b ) for a plastic drum, the requirements for the reconditioning, remanufacturing and repair in Part III of CGSB-43.126 are complied with and the drum reconditioning, remanufacturing and repair facility is registered with Transport Canada in accordance with the requirements of Appendix A of CGSB-43.126. SOR/2011-60 These regs changed in 2011 ... would they not now preclude the re-use of 45 gal drums? In spite of the fact that we have been doing this for years AND it has been demonstrated that this practice can be executed safely?
  6. I thought there was something in the TDG regs about reusing drums larger than 150L?
  7. HV - Might know some guys and might me interested myself ... What's the gig? SM

  10. Hola! Anybody out there have any info / confirmation that Bailey Helicopters suffered an engine failure in a Bell Long Ranger in the Fort Nelson area this week? There's nothing in the press about it. Heard the pilot did an incredible job saving the aircraft.... S/m
  11. Don't wait for job postings, if you are interested apply now. There are LOTS of pilots and AMEs in the queue so if you are interested, and qualified, apply! SM
