  1. I learned a lot from Wray years ago when I was an apprentice. I definitely trusted his honest opinion, and he was one of the best guys out there on the 206. My condolences to all the friends and family of Wray Palmer. He's probably already playing a game on the big hockey rink in the sky.
  2. Thanks Nutmix, that is very comparable to our experiences. I did hear from an O/H shop that new bellows are being installed, and the material has changed. I believe the old ones that worked fine were brass, and the new ones are stainless (I believe). In this scenario, a person has to rig for the first start of the day, or the warmer subsequent starts. A little more investigation and time for sure. thanks guys.
  3. Anyone else experiencing hotter starts with their recently overhauled FCU's? Looking into some info on this problem, and reports of a different type of bellows being installed in the FCU at OH. Does anyone else have input, stories, or rigging tips on this problem?
  4. pay the fee, and write their CARS equivalent exam (on their soil). I don't think you can write at an embassy, unfortunately. Maybe someone else can add to this basic explanation. cheers
  5. x2. but then there will always be hungry young ones willing to fill in the vacancy
  6. Is the 'Cables and Connectors" course B212 specific, or just Bell specific?
  7. Mr. RR would never get involved in a tangled web.
  8. I came across a truckload of army surplus from Germany a few years ago. There were dozens of German parkas for the Berlin wall guards during that 'episode'. They were long enough to touch your knees, weighed a ton, and guaranteed comfort, even standing for 12 hours on a bloody concrete wall. hindsight is 20/20. I wish I bought them, and sold them to other poor souls much like myself. BTW: my goose is all I need.
  9. wow kato, that looks pretty good. That's exactly what I'm looking for/or building.
  10. I ordered my pelican from custom case co here in canada. free shipping, and decent prices. My thoughts are that baggage handlers will bash the #### out of something that 'looks' like a tool box, where as they may take care with a pelican because a camera might be inside. maybe I'm wrong.
  11. What are most people using for bush boxes these days? I've been using a big heavy steel one, and am considering trying something different this summer (pelican case). At least I could save 25 lbs of steel. thoughts
  12. sioux for me also. snap on isn't bad (feathering trigger is nice) but I would still love to have a desoutter.
  13. Had a mud fight with a CP once. A few people here probably know Steve and that event.
  14. mediums-more than likely 'resource' heli. If you are good with a rivet gun, CHS is always busy.
