  1. The picture in the article may well be RCMP. I am looking for the operator who dropped off supplies to the protesters.
  2. Anybody that can identify this aircraft I would like for them to message me. https://vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca/mobile/rcmp-say-helicopter-provided-supplies-to-old-growth-logging-protesters-in-fairy-creek-area-1.5577246?fr=operanews Thanks, Sean Smyth
  3. I'm probably way too late here, but I would suggest Dent Island Lodge. They have a helipad on the water and will let you land on the dock. Great restaurant with a deck for drinks and rooms to stay overnight. It's on the high end of the price range but I think it's worth it.
  4. Interesting discussion. I have recently been working with a community about a hospital helipad. I can't yet go into details but I will shed some light on the topic. The TC regulations have been in place for about 10 years but only recently have been enforced. TC had also advised the Health Authorities (the owners of the heliports) that it is their responsibility for enforce and report any violators of the H1 requirements. Essentially they have told them to report on anyone who lands at the heliports without prior permission and is not Air Ambulance. There are many problems with this
  5. Hi Bluethunder, Too bad I only read this post now. I just finished my 6th trip up into Alaska. I usually cross in bc but sometimes the Yukon weather depending. I've taken firearms across the whole bit. I've ferried helicopters to Nome and Dutch Harbor. I love Alaska. The rest of the world could take lessons on how the Alaskans deal with general aviation. If your ever planning on doing it again please give me an email or call. I'd love to share the tricks. I wish I knew them all the first time I went. Don't worry about the radio screw up. We've all done it,but I'll never admit it.
  6. The time has come for a new windshield on our B2. I've talked to Tech-Tools and Eurocopter about their products. Eurocopter gave me a cheeper quote by about $250 per side. Anybody know any other dealers for western Canada? Can anyone recommend Tech or EC?
  7. Hey Swinnger, No RainX. Just soap, water and some 210. The roughness is even between the screws on the windshield...
  8. We have a new Astar with just over 200 hours on it. It has done 2 tours on the road so far and has spent the rest of its short life in the hanger. It came back from its last tour with a very dirty windshield. After numerous cleaning with soap and water we still can't get it clear again. No scratches, just rough and hard to look through. Almost looks like it has been sandblasted. The machine was doing a lot of landing in the sand on windy days, but nothing unusual from our other machines. This is the first time I have seen this. Any comments or suggestions? Anybody else seen this?
  9. Thank god. When I saw the title of this forum I thought it was a video someone took of me years ago that has finally surfaced. Not me. Looks like everyone had fun though.
  10. I haven't seen the show yet, but I've worked with the guys on it. It should be entertaining. You want a good laugh I found this review on it. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1...air.html?cat=39 I never thought anyone would find those guys sexy.
  11. I gotta log on to these things more. HV, I've been thinking about this since our first descussion. I was eager to bring it up to a certain manager to see what he thought. I know from witnesses that he has removed the door post while @ 100%. He flatly denied he'd ever done it. This brought up an interesting point to me. Until Bell puts something in writing, if you remove the door post while running and something goes south. Well then your on your own, no manager will back you up. As for the removing the door post from the AC while pilot is hot fueling, if that happened to me
