  1. Helifor was consistently flying 2400 hrs. Per year per Vertol with one year topping 2600 hrs.

    Chinook in Abbotsford can answer all your questions. It’s a very good school.
  3. I think I heard something squeaking
  4. Anybody have any good things to say on working overseas?
  5. Strap in? No body required. Sling jobs pilotless?watched them do it in Afghanistan with a remote operated husky. Made it look easy.
  6. Deny deny deny. Buggy whip designers said the same thing
  7. Wake up call. I keep hearing pilots tell us that drones will never replace pilots. The tech already exists. It’s the regs that need to catch up. Bye bye pilots.
  8. 2 on 2 off is my limit. Nice to have half the summer off.
  9. Good response and the hourly averaging thing is always dubious. I’ve seen companies say that flight pay is in place of extra hours worked. I also new a base manager that was sent an email that said he was not really a manager so was not entitled to the management benefits. Many years later when he left and asked for all his extra hours to be paid he was told that as a manager he was not paid that way. He pulled his old email that stated he was not a manager and burned them for over 10,000 grand. Companies can’t have it both ways although they will always try. Cheers.
  10. Why so hard on yourself? I never called you that. Get a positive attitude it may get you a better rotation.
