  1. "I forgot to mention, this 407 has never had a hook installed" Strange. Like a eunuch.
  2. http://m.liveleak.com/view?i=bb0_1458065483 Just came across this online. There is so much wrong here. I can't believe this helicopter didn't crash.
  3. On my phone with the mobile version I can't click on the thing at the top right with the squares where you check messages and notifications. It just started doing that a few days ago.
  4. Are you also trying to see where the sunniest spot in Canada is? Google says Medicine Hat. I don't buy it, I NEED to see that attachment.
  5. Uh oh. Shakey is drinking and internetting again.
  6. Date Entered:2015-10-28 Narrative: An Elephant Enterprises Bell 206B (C-GIFY) reported entering severe icing with Saskatoon, SK (CYXE) Tower 27 miles southwest of CYXE. No further communication received and the aircraft descended below radar coverage. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) advised and later confirmed that the helicopter had crashed. Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Trenton, Transportation Safety Board (TSB) and Aviation Operations Centre advised. O.P.I.: Further Action Required: Scary situation to get into. I notice the accident occurred around 7:45pm and sunset in Saskatoon is around 5:45pm. Icing sucks but severe icing at night has got to be terrifying. Condolences to family and friends.
  7. http://www.cbc.ca/m/news/canada/montreal/sept-îles-helicopter-crash-transport-safety-board-talks-to-witnesses-1.3216347 This artical says they are interviewing witnesses including the pilot, which is shocking because looking at the pictures of the wreckage I was sure the pilot would have been one of the fatalities. https://www.facebook.com/icibassaintlaurent/videos/837570809673470/?pnref=story

  9. That's gotta be embarrassing. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/Why--309188261.html
  10. Are you talking like gun powder or Peruvian powder?
  11. Disregard. For anyone interested I talked to the guy at Merit Apparel the other day and he said they have only sold one LH350 and he wouldn't reccomend them. He said all the changes gallet made from the LH250 were negative. Heavier and bulkier. It's shorter but 2 inches wider. The chin strap is like a football helmet where is cups your chin. Probably not too comfortable after a long day in the summer heat. Needles to say I'm getting a new LH250.
  12. Bump! Looking at getting a new helmet. I've had a LH250 for the last 8 years and have no real complaints but considering the 350. Anyone have any reviews/complaints about the lh350? I can't say I've seen anyone wearing one in my travels across the country.
  13. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the droppings oil prices and how it's going to affect the industry in already rough times. There are a lot of operators Out there whose majority of work is oil and gas. Should they be worried?
  14. I heard 100ish people laid off from the big blue. From pilots engineers and management. Have a look at discovery air's stock prices from the last couple weeks.
  15. Yeah I was joking. I edited my post for clarity. In reality I think if they want us to count NG and FT cycles then they should come with cycle counters from the factory. Those cycle counting charts that turbomecca put out are not super straight forward.
  16. The most accurate way to count cycles is to look back through the logbook and and find an entry that has a similar flight time and landings and copy those NG and FT numbers. LOL
  17. What a complete moron. There's no excuse for that.
  18. I agree, that's BS. Any explanation vertical team?
  19. The OMNR and OPP fly with NVG in ec130 and ec135.
  20. I just phoned trasport about my endorsement as my 90 days is up on the 17th. The lady told me that they are 3 months behind in their processing of endorsements and they would email me an extension letter. She was pretty rude about the whole thing but at least I'm getting it taken care of. I had her direct number from an email that she sent requesting a payment that I had already made 2 months earlier so I didn't have to wait for a call back. Pm me if you want it.
  21. Vast, could you please post "the pic that followed this one"? I'm curious.
  22. "He has been identified as a 69-year-old man from Surrey, but his name will not be released" From the last posted article.
  23. Fingers crossed for the best possible outcome.
