  1. I have been infected! Not to worry, you won't be hearing any more for me! Guaranteed! Time to check out! Enough is enough! HF
  2. It takes a great deal more than a feeble attempt at humor to get my goat. But thanks HB. HF
  3. Dick, Mike, CJ That's great advice! when you have a job! Fantastic! But what the heck is a guy to do. Its brutal! You first have to know what or who is doing what? Everything is shrouded in silence. Redacted!! This is why it is referred to as blackballing or black listing, the person is helpless to do anything, and doing nothing does nothing as well. The industry obviously encourages this behavior. These are facts, not fiction, as much as I wish they where. I wouldn't be upset about the matter, if the guy had lost the contract, or decided that my skills were not up to the job. Fine, I can accept that, but to say nothing, mute, no explanation at all. I am sure you could appreciate how this would drive a person to madness. Cheers and thanks for the advice! HF
  4. Creepy and yet interesting at the same time! HF
  5. Yes, yes HB! I am waiting! I tried some of those underground club you mentioned, but was banned! Cheers HF
  6. Helo- Bird Thanks for the insight, and believe me I would like nothing better than to fly under the radar undetected, but there comes a time when a person has been pushed so many times that a full battery response is comming. After being slammed one to many times its a miracle I haven't gone postal!! or just given up in the big way!! So let them beat me up! Go for it!! If this is what they do best then fine. I expect nothing less from the "great" men of this fair and completely honest industry. Thanks for the kind words and insight, though. Cheers HF
  7. Professionalism, telling the truth, and treating people with respect. All too often, I tell myself, treat others as you would want to be treated tell the truth, be honest, and be up front. There is nothing worse than that sinking feeling of mistrust,hate mongering or living with a lie. Especially when lies and deceit affect the lives of other in a negative way. So very recently this evil demon has once again raised its ugly head. Here is what happened. There I was, coming to a time when a decision had to be made about moving on back to Canada for work. I had been speaking with who I though was a really nice guy working a small operation with a few jet boxes in the lower mainland. He seemed all to eager to help with some work. I was ready to put in a solid effort, attitude 100% positive, the day came, I got the call, my PPC had been scheduled for the following day so I hustled over to the mainland for the ride. It was a beautiful sunny day, not a cloud in the sky, after a day of studying the stuff I was ready, the training flights went well. At 13:00 in the door came non other than KO my heart sank, thinking “great” may as well been Guy Smith, I’m done, this guy is going to cut my flying to pieces and there is no way I will be able to impress this guy or pass the ride for that matter. I was extremely nervous, but gave it my best shot, and much to my surprise actually achieved what the examiner termed as “walking on water” for several of the sections of the ride and the elusive “4” at the end of the column. In fact I got 6 (4’s). and all the rest 3’s. Not only was I very pleased with myself for achieving such a high standard with such a remarkable and even a legendary pilot. The ride was informative and I picked up a few pointers as well. So back home till the call to get going and everyone was smiles, me included! Life was good! Friday and Saturday flew by I was still riding that feeling of accomplishment, feeling great, work was on the way! Then it hit! Sunday 10am without warning I received a call from the boss, his first words were “ I am not going to be able to use you” when I asked what had changed, he was unable to provide an explanation and wanted off the telephone fast. I said “ hold on” what’s up? He replied “ No, No” Sorry can’t use you! Got to go thanks! So what happened to giving a guy a chance? What was said to this guy and by whom that he was so scared even to explain, or provide any information. Was this the mysterious non existent black balling that doesn’t exist in this industry perpetuated by men of great honor? Who would do such a thing and sewer a guy, without speaking to him face to face and allowing at the very least an opportunity to defend himself. I am still in shock. To those who are quick to criticize me for having a less than perfect opinion of this industry I hope this little “true” story sheds some light on the reality of the slimeball behavior that exists amongst management and the “great men” in this industry. I would like nothing more than to believe he opposite, but the proof is in the pudding as granny used to say. Unreal! Cheers HF
  8. :shock: So busted or not busted?
  9. Opps! Sorry Didn't mean to question your intelligence Twinster! Standing in the corner!
  10. From the website Flight Crew Bob Batchelor, Whitney employs and is managed by the areas most experienced and longest resident helicopter pilot . With a total of 40 years in the industry flying various types of helicopters, Bob’s 28 years in the region exceeds the average age of most local helicopter operator’s pilots. Bob’s familiarity with local users needs is unmatched. Gordon Fevang, brings 6,000 accident free hours to the company with a total of 12 years experience in the region flying for local users. Gordon’s passengers know they can rely on him to look after their helicopter requirements. Steve Schulte, recently returning to Ft. St. John with his family after beginning his career here 17 years ago, brings over 13,000 hours of small, intermediate, medium and heavy helicopter experience to Whitney Helicopters. Nothing flashy about these guys, the best summation of their philosophy about helicopter operations is Safe Service! Maintenance Crew Dave Wood and Clayton Whitney look after the maintenance of the machines. Dave and Clayton are both graduates of Northern Lights College - Aircraft Maintenance Engineer program in Dawson Creek. Dave with 20+ years in helicopter maintenance is a homegrown Ft. St. John resident. Clayton – also born and raised in FSJ worked in the maintenance department at Bailey Helicopters for 3 years prior to joining Whitney.
  11. Wow what a surprise!! He is not alone. No doubt the entire screw-up and why there is no money has nothing to do with the economy, i bet its the pilots fault!! :down: We will never know the truth.
  12. Staff are looking for work elsewhere!! Good luck on that one!! This lends new meaning to "working for free" Don't think that mgmt isn't quick to the job shortage situation and as far as finding a half decent job outside aviation in this economy.Good luck! My suggestion Suicide!! quick, painless, problem solved. HF
  13. All I hope for is that management will start eating there young! HF
