  1. Thank you for such a constructive response ray. I do have a flight manual and a company exam but it is always nice to see what other curly questions are out there. You cant blame a guy for trying to learn a little more about the machine can you?
  2. Good morning all, I was just wondering if someone could help me out with a copy of a good AS350B2 exam. It is more for my own re current training interests than anything else. Just wanted to polish up on the numbers a little. If you do could you please PM me. Thanks FF
  3. Hey Vibe, 97 Straight eh?? Sounds a little over the 42 and 5 rule. Maybe some pictures of " The Girls " might keep transport at bay.
  4. I would have to say the drunk tank at Whitecourt RCMP station. Definently my least favourite spot in Canada. Its a long story!!!
  5. I think I would probably try both before I go ruling one or the other out. But hey.....thats just me.
  6. You get paid about half what you would at home????? I am not sure who you have been talking to BORED but I can assure you the money is just the same as what we make here in Canada. Maybe it varys from company to company.
  7. You still never answered my question Hurler. What does one of the highest paid helicopter pilots in Canada make these days?
  8. I for one would like to know what "one of the highest paid pilots in Canada" actually earns. Go on make us jealous Hurls.
  9. Personally I have had 3 loads depart the helicopter. All were 100% mechanical failures. Two were electrical faults ( AStar) and one hook rigged incorrectly in the hanger. (212). All unable to be seen on a walk around and all a long way from me " Pushing the button."
  10. I kind of feel sorry for the guy. Obviously we never want to see anyone injured in the realm of doing our job, but to be formally charged and sentenced to 15 months on top of the guilt of killing 9 is a pretty tough call. I am sure we have all had instances where loads could do damage if released. Whether you are flying bags across a road or bucketing near houses or even cabins. I think it opens up a whole new can of worms.
  11. Couple of rap machines already in Hinton for training.
  12. Look up DA.A on the TSX website. That is the company identifier. Not GSHL.
  13. I have to say that the AS350B2 would be my favourite for swinging bags. When its -30 and snowing sideways that heater works like a charm. Not to mention the comfort of the floor window. Once you get use to it I wouldnt fly anything else. Much easier than having to crane your neck out the window of other machines. I.E R44, B206, H500, B407. Nice amount of power and a big fat fan on the back. Just my preference.
