  1. I'm sorry to hear about Wray. I haven't seen him in a few years....life goes by too quick. Condolences to his family.
  2. Howie you will be missed. Condolences to his family and all who knew him. I'll raise a beer tonight in your honor. WW
  3. Or maybe they ran out of pilots who were willing to pay their own airfare to fly themselves to the job location?
  4. I just heard about the rates on the latest Pine Beetle Contract, where yet again the rate of $944/hour came up again......... for a Bell 47 !!! I nearly fell off my chair laughing. Well done CM. I hope to h*ll forestry gets the point. :up:
  5. Why are the only threads to keep on topic, the song, picture or joke of the day?... Splitpin you are one lucky sole to not have been involved in an investigation. Here are my 2 cents 1. Call Operations Manager (can also be other Manager as per company ERP) and report 2. They call rescue coordination centre (if elt goes they may have already gotten the call) 3. They then call TSB (no, not Bill Yearwood personally). Manager call's the TSB line and they give you an investigator. (sometimes local authorities will be called before that, depends on where you are and what the circumstances are). Remember once the aircraft can't fly it belongs to the insurance people. 4. Then they call the insurance company (just informing them) then insurance adjuster. There are a couple of different adjusters out there. In our area many will tell you Pacific Adjusters is the only way to go. Fair and helps with organizing site etc. Response time to the site of course depends on where you are. Once everyone has been informed, and TSB has given you the clearance, you can be at the site but cannot touch anything. TSB and local authorities take over the site. Once the site has been cleared by TSB, the insurance (through the adjuster) will be responsible to clean up the site. If there has been a fatality the local coronor's office will be responsible for that part of the accident. All of your findings, thoughts and assumtions really don't mean much at this point. It will be up to TSB inspector in charge to review the findings and let you know what happend. If further investigation is needed TSB will store the wreckage and do that on a premises that they pick. I have found in the past TSB are good at communicating with the operator involved. Saying all that I hope you never have to go through one and can just read about it on the forum
  6. ame206350, I hope you are right, however it states under the applicability "The statement contained within the Compliance section of this AD ...... has been determined to exceed the privilege." Maybe my engineer is wrong, but he reads that as saying the AD states that it's all good with a pilot, but now Transport Canada (in its infinite wisdom) says no..... I think my engineer just wants to stop me from using my magnifying glass.....
  7. Don't leave home without your engineer! Quoted from Transport Canada's website: "EUROCOPTER helicopters models: - AS 350 B, BA, BB, B1, B2, B3 and D - AS 355 E, F, F1, F2 and N, all serial numbers and equipped with tail rotor blade part numbers as per this directive. The statement contained within the Compliance section of this AD and referenced Service instructions , "Note: This check can be carried out by an appropriately trained pilot." has been determined to exceed the privilege extended under STD 625 appendix A (29) and therefore must be carried out by an appropriately qualified Aircraft Maintenance Engineer as per CAR 571.10. Airworthiness Notice - B061, Edition 1 - 2 February 2001" See for yourself :shock: http://www.tc.gc.ca/aviation/applications/...=true&rand= WW
  8. That is sad news for them and our industry. I was holding out hope that something may have turned around for them.
  9. I'm all for everyone helping keep the hanger clean and organized. I guess some people like to help out and others not so much so. Buy bad coffee and remove all chairs, that way if they are not going to help at least they wont sit and watch.
  10. Hey that's a darn good idear. Me and my brother Jed were just sitting on the porch playing our banjo's and we thought its 'bout time all dem funny talkers go home. Because the less work the more time dem funny talkers will spend in town trying to woo our little women and before you know it we be out of jobs with no women....no, not good at all.... WW PS No I'm not a funny talker... PPS May the best man get the job...
  11. Heard there was a helicopter accident at Victoria airport with 2 injured. Hope they are ok.
