  1. So what would you want to see in the forums? Speculation,hearsay,gossip? You are advocating the same things you pretend to despise in previous comments.
  2. #### happens. That's all the dissecting am gonna do.Thou who lives is a glass house shall cast no stone.
  3. It could be a character building experience. Like anything else,it depends on what you're after. If you are after the travel,experience,adventure,etc than give it a go. Maintenance sucks at times but nobody could convince me to fly if I didn't feel safe. The boats,especially the taiwanese ones offer a no frills experience.Be ready for cuisine that would make a stray dog gag and accommodations that sometimes are a 6 by 6 by 6 box situated by the boats hydraulics pack. Moggy's manual is a good read before you go . If you are after scheduled tours and anything that could remotely involve anything posh,even cozy slippers or tea that doesn't spill on your lap, don't go.
  4. Deaner, You *******! I knew it was you! Keep at it, brother. It will happen sooner or later. The Honey Badger.
  5. I call B.S on most of what you said. I don't have a JAA but I travel to Europe often and it is way harder to break in the industry there than it is here. As for Canadian pilots (especially low time ones) working there ,you are even more full of it.
  6. Condolences to the families and colleagues . I had the chance to fly Klaus on one of his offshore research expeditions off Banks Island. A truly dedicated scientist and a great human being. This is the second person I know killed in a helicopter crash this year.Sobering.
  7. Out of nurse? Not good! More direct position entry needed ,I guess.
  8. Much better than answering a question with a question.
  9. Sad news. Condolences to the family and to all my friends at Gemini. Dan Munteanu
  10. I have to get in on this. The " puppy mill " next door" brought a lot of canadian pilots in the job market.I know many of them and I am one of them. I know no one that got the license at your school and I doubt that you have many examples.They train people to fly in the reality of the Canadian bush and lately stepped up a notch with the IFR training which I am sure is of the same quality and just as meaningful. When it comes to American protectionism of their own job market and of their own training you are a good example . Unfortunately this a 2 way street and therefore you should shut the [email protected] up.
  11. Horrible news. Condolences to the families and friends.Dan M.
  12. I know nothing about the job,company,etc.If its worth the trouble of posting here on the subject why would not be worth the trouble of sending a message to the guy that posted the add and get info from the horse's mouth or simply call the company .Seems like the logical thing to do.Here you might get a bunch of bias opinions and maybe start a mud slinging competition.Just saying....
  13. Is that you Fabrice?

  14. Well said,OT.Condoleances to the family and friends.
  15. Been stuck in PNG for the last couple weeks and from what I read in the local press a mineral exploration and a oil and gas drilling and production boom are just around the corner.I was wondering if there are any Canadian companies operating in the region.

    So ,Shakey ya long lost friend!I see your bitching is a habit not a coincidence.Well dude,you are one bitter mo fo and I wonder who would keep a guy like you on payroll .Or who would wanna work with you in the field for that matter.Business is business and if I wanna catch rabbits I will dangle a God dam carrot. It is important to note that MVH will not make fake promises for the purpose of getting students.They will tell you straight up what the truth of the matter is and advise that you think about it before making a decision that will cost you money.It is obvious(maybe not to you)that they can not hire 36 students in the summer,but they will have in mind your attempts to break trough and they will keep a running account of job availabilities with the helicopter operators across Alberta and Canada.I know many pilots that got their start via the Drumheller tour operation ,and I know many pilots that started with other operators on recommendation from MVH instructors.Yes I got my licence with them,no I have never worked for them and yes I am flying.
  17. You are right.I should have said:"the only reason that I could find in the CFS"
  18. The only reason that you should be monitoring 123.2 instead of 126.7 is flying in the vicinity of an uncontrolled aerodrome without a published ATF as per CFS (A86 General).But again,that does not apply only to the coast...Back to my tree.
  19. Good job on the flight test!!!!As for the moose..hmmm, I better keep my mouth shut and abort,abort!
  20. You will be working on navs soon.....Pay attention to dry lakes on the north navs!
  21. Congrats Daren !! Big step for you.Cheers,and keep on working hard!Cuban
