  1. watabeg lake eh? i didn't know there was a fire base there. I fly into there on occasion though.
  2. a leatherman wave with the bit kit comes in handy. I second the water detection paste, the rest of the tools needed should be in the machine anyways. How about a chunk of magnesium with a sparker attached?... might come in handy. not to mention water purification tablets. but thats just for emergency.
  3. Imagine goin' for a sunday walk down the power line and seeing this dangling in your face..... WTF. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMQgt5YiD0w

  9. has anybody seen the movie Strikers Mountain? circa 1989, there are alot of alpine ships in the movie. or did anyone in here work on the set?. Pretty Cheesy movie but its about Heli Skiing and has Leslie Neilson in it.
  10. This industry has been subjecting pilots and engineers to wages far below what they deserve for the work they are doing. I have personally seen carpenters and electricians make far more money then most people in the industry do. If a family life is the most important to you than you should look for something that makes you happy with your family. If you are however an "aviation" freak, then you should check out ATC. You will still have contact with the aviation industry and make a descent living while staying in the aviation industry while maintaining a family life. Just another 2 p

    you should compare the cost to get the FW the then the RW conversion. and then the RW with the FW conversion. Im pretty sure you would benifit with the FW first. you will learn the basics of flying, like radio work and naviagation before flying helicopters. Once you start flying heli's you can focus on the fundamental heli skills. like hovering, autos, confined areas and slininging. Just my 2 cents worth. btw. All of the pilots at my company have at least a private fixed wing.
  12. I figure a "Lowtimer" should be worth about 10 to 12 dollars an hour doing ground crew duties and other " lowtimer duties" and should also get about 20 to 30 dollars an hour for flight pay. after about 500 hours the pay should go up. If everyone was willing to accept this pay and noting less, the whole industry would benifit.

    I would go with the fixed wing first ( plus a float rating with some bush time) then the 60 hour conversion. With the fixed wing license you will learn the basics of flying and by the time you are finished you will have about 260 hours TT instead of 100 TT. Like most people say, its being in the right place at the right time. plus having the right attitude and personalitly play the biggest part in getting employment. Good Luck.
  14. don't know if this helps but...... I just applied for the hrsdc funding and i had an offer of employment after training. they offered to give me ei while training as well as 10 g's for the flight training....... it was a nice offer but not nearly enough for me to be able to afford to fund the rest of the training myself.
