  1. Fix it??? Yeah right, there's a ASRD medium contract out right now. Cant wait to see the lowball rate that wins this??? No fixing when we constantly underbid, producing less revenue which in turn is used to pay employees and everything else..
  2. Wasnt the Pres/Vice Pres also the owners?? If so they resigned from who?? Sorry its early and I don't get it..
  3. Sorry but I had to. Canadian Juniors- WORLD CHAMPIONS ONCE AGAIN!!!!!!!!
  4. So about to purchase an ipad mini with the thoughts of using it with foreflight in the future. I am not computer smart so was wondering which ipad people are using, ipad with wifi or the wifi and 3g model??? anything else to consider, straight VFR driver, that IFR stuff scares me............hehe
  5. guess the day rate will double next year, cause all these layed off guys need to make a years wages in the 3 months of summer before said companies SAVE money in the winter???????????????
  6. Oh good luck to all these companies getting the people to come back in the spring. Sure some will be available but good chance the good ones wont be back. Accountants never get the need to hold on to good guys thru the winter.
  7. okay out of curiosity CBRN what are you looking for and what is low maintenance. Are you saying if the resume had 10000hrs instead of 403 you would look at it differently? Are you laughing at the 2/2 because he has low hours? Or would a 10000hr guy be laughed at as well. The point I believe is actually what you mentioned. "willing to do whatever it takes" It is this mentality that companies are exploiting and you confirmed it in your statement. Look at some of the application reasoning from these companies, crazy to think they get approved. The program was not put in place so companies could increase their bottom dollar. As for working overseas I actually do but you know what, I do not go and work the entire season straight and I sure in the **** do not do it for half the wages. So you cannot compare Canadians working overseas to what the companies here in Canada are doing with the foreign workers program.
  8. Wow interesting set of documents.. I think my favorite is "we did not have one response to our recruitment drive thru ads on KIJJI AND CRAIGSLIST" Why didn't I think to look for a helicopter pilot job amongst all the sex/wife swap ad's on craigslist??? Oh and the " no helicopter pilot in Canada with specialized office computer skills to do our admin work for $17hr " is another good one. And these applications get approved???
  9. averaged Mins should be outlawed from the helicopter industry. Any company putting that option into contract proposals shall be banned from bidding for 5 years. Every customer has figured out how to play with the mins, How about OMNR, fly your bag off for 5 days then they sit you and fly in joe blow from 200 miles away to use up some of his mins. Oh but don't release you because your over you mins so they get to hold you for however many days it takes to average out your total hours. Meanwhile BC lights up but your stuck on a extended 4 days hire so they can AVERAGE OUT YOUR HOURS. Criminal.
  10. The "As the Rotor Turns" smut mag says there are big changes at Skyline????
  11. Not wanting to start rumours just looking for info. According to Cadors this morning the Coastal Fire center reported that a Kamov had crashed??? Anyone verify, got some friends there!
  12. I think you are getting really close to what the 212E really is, you are just trying to be nice and not say it out loud here.........But the majority of us know what your thinking.
  13. Hum, That post never came across how I wanted it! Guess that's why I don't write here often. Anyway I didn't show up in this industry with 10000hrs, I was that 100hr guy trying to make it so I know how hard that is to say no. Do I want better tours? YES Do I want better money? YES I am sure we all do! My point was not that I want to see things stay in 1967 mentality, rather that maybe some personal responsibility of how we each manage the fatique issue is needed not just some big brother hard fast rules. That's it, that's all I got. Back to being a lurker.....
  14. OMG I can't take this back and forth argument anymore!!! I have been flying for 22 years, I go to work when I am asked if I am rested and able, I fly the required hours on whatever job I am doing if I am rested and able. I work the required duty hours if I am rested and able. Being rested and able is up to me! Take some personal responsibility, no new rules will supply the miracle cure. Sorry I don't get it, everywhere you look these days people are pointing fingers at someone else for their problems. Okay I'm done my rant, If anyone needs a driver this summer give me a call as I will make sure I'm rested and ready to go because I take that as my responsibility not because some frickin rules said.....
  15. Any truth to the rumour Charlie and Usidean have moved on? Know where?
