  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. Ability to sign in on the Forums is hit & miss.More Miss than hit tho.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Have you checked with Gary or Richard at Airbus Helicopter in Ft. Erie?
  11. Check out the new VIRB & VIRB Elite by Garmin.It's getting pretty good reviews from what I've been reading.
  12. 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.
  13. 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 $$.
  14. I just happen to have a couple of those crests, the original Dominion & a Pegasus crest. Oh yeah, & an original Dominion hat. I'll keep 'em for now
  15. Joined Dominion in fall 71. Saw it become Dom-Peg , then Okie. Most of it in 7-Iles. Was there with Elvis & some others on this forum, but old age is setting in.Left in 76 for Coast Guard until 79.With Ont Hydro 79-2000. At ECL ever since. Just building 1:1 full scale flying models now. My brother was also in 7-Iles & l is in his 30 plus years with Cdn Int'l
  16. In most cases yes, the mod kits are free. We have been supplying the correct Geneva parts since the day their bulletin came out. As per usual, It took the Americans 12 months to figure this out. Normally, from past experience, they take 18-24 months to issue an AD that was originally issued by the Type Certificate holder.They were flyin on this one!
  17. Centennial College 1971 (?) AME Then BH47, BH06 Series, HU500,AS341,AS350B2/3 /AS355, EC130B4, EC120B, S58T, Herman Nelson, 332C, M1, M2, the old S, P, and.....?. It's just a hobby now , building 1:1 scale models. Favorite, S58T, not including Herman Nelson, altho he was good for the OT $$
  18. It has been awhile, but I do remember signing out DYK on many occasions in Sept-Iles PQ
  19. Wait until the STC comes out that will certify installing the Lycomongs back into the AStars. Aurevoir Turbomeca !! Customers are already lined up & waiting.
  20. But then on the other hand no one was injured. We built 13 B3s for the USBP , & some we have already rebuilt. They tend to bend a lot of aircraft. Job security I guess.
  21. Many years ago in my Cdn Coast Guard days, one of our instructors faithfully wore the issue Nomex flight suits. One very hot day in July during a training flight in YOW, he took it off & flew in his civies. There was an incident during an autorotatation, resulting in a fire , in which he was severely burned, & later succumbed to his injuries. Sad situation, as this was the only time anyone saw him flying without his Nomex suit. Wore mine all the time in flight, even tho I was the AME crewmember during the flight. Just my .02 worth
  22. Elvis, Yes, I remember when Mario threw the rock at the 205. He is still with Field in YYZ as far as I know
