  9. Another couple by Mr. Corley-Smith were 10,000 Hours and Helicopters in BC... I think I gave my copies to a local Air Cadet Squadron when I lived in YQW... Isn't son Gerry still with or was with Highland?

  15. Rupert's Land... Haven't heard that name in a long time. I was up in La Ronge when I was still writing for the original "Helicopters" magazine.

  16. Totem Air, all the companies Canadian swallowed....
  17. Nice set up, Rotor.. Just be careful that an unexpected pressure differential does not result in fluid being expelled via the nasal orifices... 😲
