  2. How many does the pony have and which companies have the remaining contracts?
  3. This page was updated in September. The most recent page should show an underlined 14-40. The correction is under the chart referencing the (**) to say greater than.
  4. I must have timed out and got kicked to the curb. Page 7, Section 2.1 bottom of chart (**) Operation.....oil temperature at engine start is equal to or greater than -20C. And they are probably missing those two asterisk for the synthetic oil 5 centistoke MIL 23699 as well.
  5. Don't forget page 8, Section 2.1, "Notes : - The temperature limitations mentioned above apply to engine starting."
  6. And have also had this conversation with Aerospatiale. Leave Ft Nel or Ft Mac at -32 and after one refuel, land in Calgary or Lethbridge at plus 9.
  7. Unless you are running the Castrol Optigear 32 break in oil. For the duration of the break in period (100 or 200 hours I think?) , then you are limited to 0 degrees C, I believe. Check the MM.
  8. That is a lot of iron for sale (even if you remove the lease ships). Will be interesting to see how much they actually acquire.
  9. Tried the search engine to no avail. Seen it on here a couple of times. Looking for a PDF Astar 350B2 and or SD2 manual copy. Does not have to be most recent. PM if you can pass one along. Thanks.
  10. Viewed an aerial picture of the crash site. Will be educational to hear how the tailboom came off like it did.
  11. Good Times back in the 80's Capt. Kirk. ... and yes you were right ... Cheers my friend!
  12. Looking at ordering new AE helmets. Couple of questions though for those that already have them. They ask for 1) plug impedance? 2) side connector / jack plug? 3) mic and boom? 4) microphone? What do you guys recommend (or what works) in our Canadian aircraft. Will be using the helmets in Astars and mediums. And what is the CEP kit? Thanks.
  13. I did not realize handcuffs were included in baggage weight?
  14. Under the employment section they are looking for lots of maintenance personnel.
  15. Kmax in the rocks??? Your kidding me right! I highly do not recommend it.
  16. Who cares if they hire from their graduates!!!!!!!!!! These are only two of the two hundred helicopter company's in Canada that a graduate might work for ........ You want to get the best training you possible can that will prepare you for all employers, multiple geographic locations and any specialty flying that might interest you. Paul at MV has been around a long time and has many contacts. And this industry is all about knowing a guy that knows a guy that needs a guy....
  17. No worries Phil, all good. I prefer to read the "How to keep er flyin' " book myself lol.
  18. Agree with Phil on most points but not the "tail first" thing. From what I have seen "flat" is probably your best option. Tail first can go to nose straight down in a heart beat depending on what you hit..and how you hit it...
  19. SWE, IKR, LMN, MNO, SZZ, SZY Cant believe I remember all those regs from the 80's lol
