  1. so it’s become apparent in movies, news, advertising and more that drone footage is taking a big slice of what was once heli work. Is anybody here worried? Is anybody here making money using or maintaining drones? Should we be?
  2. Julian Nicholson was the DOM. We used to drive 60 km down to Kap to go to McDonald’s
  3. Yes. The Goslin family owned it. Gary somebody was the ops manager. I worked there.
  4. Actually you have been wasting our time.
  5. The depth of your delusions astounds me.
  6. So is this gonna be a good or bad year for aircrews? It looks like a great year for engineers due to the often talked about shortage which is upon us. Don't sell yourselves short. And go!
  7. Helifor was consistently flying 2400 hrs. Per year per Vertol with one year topping 2600 hrs.
  8. old


    Chinook in Abbotsford can answer all your questions. It’s a very good school.
  9. I think I heard something squeaking
  10. Anybody have any good things to say on working overseas?
  11. Strap in? No body required. Sling jobs pilotless?watched them do it in Afghanistan with a remote operated husky. Made it look easy.
  12. Deny deny deny. Buggy whip designers said the same thing
  13. 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.
  14. 2 on 2 off is my limit. Nice to have half the summer off.
  15. 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.
  16. Why so hard on yourself? I never called you that. Get a positive attitude it may get you a better rotation.
  17. Here it comes again. Next some pilot will say”we need to band together and start a union. Put our foot down” good luck with that. Go dig ditches for a week. Then think again. Lol
