  1. The end twist: No matter how good their ai and marketing is, they'll still screw the order up and you get cold pizza.
  2. Thanks for the replies folks, much appreciated.
  3. It looks like we're sending our fleet to be repainted in the usa as there "wasn't any reasonable options" for the work to be done in Canada. Is this the norm now? Is it not economically viable to repaint a medium domestically anymore?
  4. Which in itself shouldn't be a problem. Sadly, it reminds me of this one: https://www.sudbury.com/around-the-north/report-on-fatal-helicopter-crash-near-timmins-released-1654365 Dark and wintry conditions are not a place to be flying a vfr helicopter.
  5. I know an old guy who sat and waited out ice over Christmas one year, still kicking as far as I know. I used to know a guy that didn't have a great respect for the weather, he got caught one day.
  6. Yes, I also saw this discussed on another site by fear mongering idiots. TC had to clarify after the sensationalist clickbait started spreading around the web. To keep things simple, any MEDICAL TRIALS will nullify your medical. This could be a trial for the latest "male enhancement" pill or an unproven vaccine of any kind. This whole conversation is pointless as the vaccine is APPROVED and wouldn't be administered en masse if it wasn't, an emergency approval is still an approval.
  7. Ya, they exist already in various forms for the aviation sector. Still not that cost effective and not even 100% accurate either. Since there are way more trucks on the road with a rampant logging deficiency problem it's justified for that sector. Won't make the trucks any safer but will prevent most drivers from breaking the law.
  8. We never had the luxury of a blade fold kit. Just took the blades off and put them on the wall or floor stand. Technically, you aren't supposed to fold the blades without the proper kit and supports.
  9. Uh, there might be a stray blade of grass or dust but if you have that much #### inside your housing then you need to be more diligent with inspections and cleaning, possible that the seal is no good and needs to be adjusted. Cant speak on the 135 though, but again, regular cleaning helps. The bypass system needs to function properly and shouldn't be at risk of ingesting a damaging amount of fod.
  10. Try the power check with the bypass door open, if there is an increase in margin then you can look to your filters for clogging, dirt and too many "repairs".
  11. Nice! I just checked their site and they have vertical slider door windows available still. There must be a reason they don't have the sliding litter windows listed, give em a call and let us know.
  12. A couple of ex-japan machines that were imported had them. The windows had to be reverted back to normal as there was no "stc" for them and it would not be cost effective to have it certified here.
  13. You can use different oils in the 206 series I believe, always double check the type and brand before adding. Mixing is bad.
  14. Wash bottles are great, still evaporates a little though. We stopped using mek years ago and switched to less toxic alcohol, acetone for heavier jobs and commercial gun wash for bulk cleaning. Of course we have a contaminated varsol tank too. Since mek is used in illicit drug production, it also became more scarce and regulated in bigger quantities. Whatever you use, always wear proper PPE to reduce the risk. Chronic illnesses caused by toxic chemicals are no joke.
  15. At least he knows where the filler is. I knew a pilot that overfilled the "transmission", which ended up beimg the Hydraulic reservoir. That was after an elementary training session too. Carry on.
