Survived by his loving wife and best friend of 36 years, Brenda. Proud and loving father of Shannon (Josh) Stronks. He was recently blessed by the arrival of his precious granddaughter Kenzie Stronks. Cherished brother of Terry (Linda) McKenzie and brother-in-law of Cathy (Karl) Dunnett and David (late Carolyn) Weaver. He was a special uncle to his nieces and nephews. Loved nephew of Carol and Frank Naisbitt and George (late Barb) McIntee. He was predeceased by his parents Marilyn and Murray McKenzie. Michael enjoyed a career as a helicopter pilot for over 35 years. He really enjoyed spending time with all of his many friends. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Michelle from Paramed and Rafael from Saint Elizabeth for their extraordinary care over the past couple of years.

  2. Just a note to let everybody know that Wes Hopper passed away on Sept.27/17. He was an AME with Dominion, Dom-Peg , & eventually moved on to Ontario Hydro ,where he retired from as the Chief Engineer in 2000.As one co-woker put it so aptly yesterday, Wes, the gentle giant. RIP my friend.
  3. Check with Hydro One at Lake Simcoe Regional Airport.I remember putting those in in 2 Astars, sn 2589 & 2568 I believe.The one in 2589 may have been replaced after it was rebuilt.I'm no longer with the firm's I don't have access to the STC.
  4. I believe they were GCE,TCS & WMO.I'd have to dig up my 3 ring binder of the photos of that job.I was the AME
  5. Ability to sign in on the Forums is hit & miss.More Miss than hit tho.
  6. Yes, hooks on the 130B4, on the 130T2,no.Not yet anyway.The new fuel bladder is housed in an metal "box" so to speak and is designed to come out of the box via the bottom on a hard landing.
  7. Interesting to see that the "official" AHC press release says that besides sight seeing, the a/c will be used for external loads .Unfortunately with the redesign of the fuel system, you cannot install a hook on this a/c.It was probably designed for the tourist trade, i.e, Grand Canyon /Papillion, Blue Hawaii etc.
  8. Have you checked with Gary or Richard at Airbus Helicopters in Ft. Erie ?We did a calculation after doing the new original empty W and B, prior to the test flts.
  9. Have you checked with Gary or Richard at Airbus Helicopter in Ft. Erie?
  10. Check out the new VIRB & VIRB Elite by Garmin.It's getting pretty good reviews from what I've been reading.
  11. They might want to rethink that front windscreen unless they want to go the Eurocopter route & keep a lot of spares in stock a la the EC 130s & 120s.TechTool probably has a leg up on it already-at least on paper.
  12. Just a word of caution if you go to AEC in Texas.From what I understand, AEC has dropped their Transport Canada training approval.Check it out before you spend the $$.
  13. I just happen to have a couple of those crests, the original Dominion & a Pegasus crest. Oh yeah, & an original Dominion hat. I'll keep 'em for now
  14. Joined Dominion in fall 71. Saw it become Dom-Peg , then Okie. Most of it in 7-Iles. Was there with Elvis & some others on this forum, but old age is setting in.Left in 76 for Coast Guard until 79.With Ont Hydro 79-2000. At ECL ever since. Just building 1:1 full scale flying models now. My brother was also in 7-Iles & l is in his 30 plus years with Cdn Int'l
