  1. Removed… taking a bit more time to think about this post. Happy Holidays everyone
  2. Awesome ! A pilots dream machine. A true Heavy-Lifter that most operators couldn't afford to operate at a profit.
  3. Nice, :up: I can't wait to try those "Speed Holes" out. Thanks Ng, Cheers
  4. :up: SWEET :up: Although it's going to be tough to beat the "Heavy Lifter" I'm used to driving :punk:
  5. The industry has known the Fastfin is good thing for a while now. Nice to finally see some published data supporting the mod. :up: FAA APPROVES BELL 212 HELICOPTER FLIGHT MANUAL SUPPLEMENT, INCREASING PERFORMANCE WITH BLR AEROSPACE FASTFIN SYSTEM EVERETT, WA, October 20, 2011 – BLR Aerospace, a name synonymous with outstanding performance enhancement technologies that increase the capabilities of rotary-wing and fixed-wing aircraft by manufacturers such as Bell Helicopter and Hawker Beechcraft, today announced an FAA-certified performance increase for its Bell 212 FastFin®
  6. Would the purchase of a flight helmet be an eligible deduction. Employment/Safety supplies?
  7. Three of Canada's finest have joined the crew in the sandbox, let's wish em luck, lord knows they may need it. Robbie, Gord and Mike, Be cool brothers. Jiggler
  8. US government is looking to place another 50 civilian helicopters into Afghanistan. https://www.fbo.gov/spg/ODA/USTC/USTRANSCOM...lo/listing.html Looks as though the Canadians already there have done a great job of paving the way for those that follow, keep up the good work gang. Safe journeys to those that go. Jiggler
  9. It would appear I should use the spell check option more frequently... Air Rescue Systems www.airrescuesystems.com
  10. Precious, Try Air Recue Systems out of california. That's what we are using on our 212's and 205's down south. (USFS and US Park Service). Not sure if their Belly band or "Bridle" as they refer to it is Transport Canada approved or not. Set up is very similar to any of Emergco's systems. www.airrescuesytems.com Jiggler
  11. Siller Bros S64 hit by lightning at McCall airport. Four engineers injured, two serious! http://mccallstarnews.com
  12. :down: JEEZUS Old Dog, You are obviously standing in the shallow end of the pool yourself! You're empathy and respect for the families of those involved knows no limits. Pull your head out of your arse and take a look around, see any friends? Didn't think so! Jiggler
  13. Whoa there now fellas. Lets not go gettin all crazy and start making decisions that follow some sort of common sense. I mean Jeezus, next thing you know they will want us to start actually puttin these fires out. All sarcasm aside, It's about frickin time. How many times have we all been standing around Heli-base with our fingers up our noses all morning on a large fire, when we could actually be dropping water while the fire is laying low, only to wait until mid/late afternoon when the Temp and RH cross over and the Fire behavior becomes extreme. The Mother Lovin Overhead team finally
  14. Kudo's to our very own "407Driver" While doing some Mtn top repeater work for the Feds today, he notices a light plane fly into a narrow Mtn valley below, steep terrain, low airspeed and right before his very eyes, Viola' another one bites the dust! He quickly gathers up some of the local Sar Techs and three lucky folks survive a very serious situation. This guy just keeps on saving folks with his incredible ability to be in the right place at the right time. Keep up the good work brother! :punk:
  15. Recently near Chico California. Not really a camp as far as camps go but still, 14 hour days on the ramp waiting for a fire to bust a move gets pretty darn boring. 100+ degrees out, cranky fire fighters acting like junk yard dogs that haven't had a good bite in a while, it's obviously a great time to break out the Honda generator, espresso machine and blender and whip up a bach of Frappachinos for the crew. Next problem. The caffeine junkies are jacked up with nothing to do...obviously a great time for differently-abled baseball. ("Retard-Ball" just sounds so offside and wrong) b
