  1. Haha more of like getting a sun angle off of the sextant
  2. Hey, I did my custom moulds through Costco, and sent my CEP cord away with them and got them inserted that way.
  3. The questions are mostly outdated and very random. Chances are if you dont take a prep course, you will be very confused. There is a list of formulas that you must know. PNR W&B arm changes. The W&B is on a SK61 The weather portion is a typical TC exam, but once again, the prep course will go through questions, so you know how to answer them correctly. PM me if you want further info.. Cheers, T
  4. Yes, COM is the big one, not that you must remember everything but ensure you can navigate through the COM and more so the training chapter. CARs is mostly about flight & duty ( in your COM) and section of the CARs that you operate under... 702 703??
  5. My rules to live by in Mtn Flying; My favorite Whitesnake song; ”slow and easy” think of yourself at a pool or hottub, Always dip your toe in before you jump right in..... know when your in upflow or downflow air, dont be afraid to ‘shuttle’ in loads, by that I mean if you are heavy and the LZ is not quite right, find another spot and make a couple of trips to the LZ.
  6. The C28 will start temping out when it gets warm outside, I want to say 25C. The L1 can be upgraded to the C30 engine, which makes it an L3.
  7. We now have usb power in our mediums, but I built a cord and took power from the 2 pin connector used for refueling or stobex power, and then Used a 12-24 volt cigarette usb adapter to power the iPad and phone during flight... The suction mount and X grip are awesome!!! I switched from Foreflight to Garmin Pilot, much easier to enter a lat and long on the go with Garmin...
  8. For some reason I am not able to pm anyone on here, it states that your unable to recieve messages...
  9. Bif, any updates on your search with your FDT issue, I am curious, in the same boat here...
  10. $60/ month. 10GB data most carriers offered this deal this Dec, not sure if they still are
  11. The PPC form requires a company name and TC file number. So I doubt that a foreign operator has a TC file number. The PPC is based on an Operators 'approved' Operations manual. All the initial or recurrent training stated in the Operations manual must be complete and signed off by the CP, Ops Mgr, or a Training Captain, usually documented in the pilot file. As well, the candiate will need a PPC recommend, this will allow an ACP to do a ppc.
  12. I run the CEP kit on my SPH 5 . No issues, other than I got custom earpieces made at Costco, sent away my CEP harness with them and they installed into the custom earpieces. The foamy earpieces they sent with the kits get dirty pretty quick.
  13. Condolences to family, friends, and employees envolved. Another sad tragedy for our helicopter community.
  14. BM 1. The CP does not need to do a PPC ride with TC, only a ride PPC ride with an ACP. This person can not be a subordinate pilot.The ACP monitor must be done with a TC inspector. 2. The 2 year PPC with a PCC done by the the 1st day of the 13 month month is gone. The PCC exemption in lieu of a PPC can still be done as long as you have the allowances in your Ops Manual.This PCC is valid for 12 months as is a PPC. The PCC can be done by an approved pilot as long as he has completed the written test and this test has been corrected by TC. 3. Company training pilots (who are ACPS) are able to do PPC on all company pilots as long as they are not the Chief Pilot or the owner. (conflict of interest) The catch is the training pilot cannot train the pilot then do the PPC on that person. (they can do both with written authorization from TC under certain curcumstances) Nothing states that the training pilot (must be a ACP) can do some of the training, then another pilot does the rest of the training and a PPC recommendation is done, Then the first training pilot (ACP) can do the PPC. The limits of the ACP authority is written in the ACP Manual. Hope this may clear up some issues.
