  2. And I thought Trump was entertaining...
  3. MEOB: With all due respect, unless you are the one cutting the cheques, this choice should be left to those who do...
  4. The pilot is doing his/her job professionally and safely. Boaters don't know s..t as to what safe is. No rules were broken here. Too many times did I see idiot boaters getting closer and closer to our dip. They increase unnecessary risks as pilots have to look out for those knuckleheads
  5. It sounds like the Airline Pilots (union) have their S&@T together. Good info
  6. Did I miss something? most Gilles posts have been deleted.... Censorship? Pressures? Threats? Woa! big brother is watching.... What's next?
  7. I can not imagine the fixed wing industry being such drama queens like the helicopter one. Some operators requirements is so ridiculous! like these choppers are soooo special! Airlines (fixed wings) have guys with less hours that Phoenix ask for and they are in charge of aircrafts worth 50 times more than an EC135 and more pax! So...next time you step in a 777 or else, ask the pilot if he meets Phoenix requirement.... Yes Darrel...I hear it all..in the name of safety and...good marketing though..people still buy that? time to get down the high horse Skaf
  8. Ok, I'll join the Choir ....Eff you Blow Fan Gleeson! Eff you Heli Zero!
  9. As a Canadian Operator, using those brands, I am not impressed...that makes me worried if/when something happens to my fleet, will I be treated the same way as Skully... Those "suppliers" better step in and settle this "quickly"... Be a man! do the right thing!
  10. don't get your joke strata pilot ...or was it a joke?
  11. Paul I am with you on that one. We all know pilots are multitaskers, yeah right, untill #### hits the fan. Pulots who text while flying are idiots. accidents waiting to happen. More technology is made available and more pilots want those toys. Call me old fashion but our job is about MINIMIZING RISK! anyone arguing with this should stop flying.
  12. No kidding! some clients have ridiculous hours requirements yet they don't mind flying in 40 year old technologies' aircrafts! talk about minimizing risks! I call it HYPOCRISY !
  13. I concur but it has to come from Speyside! I like the saltiness character. Hey Helilog, we should plan a tasting some day, like the real wine snobs do!
  14. Hey Seeker, if you want to read educated post, go there: www.oilfield.websitetoolbox.com you might find your fix....
  15. 8 hours!? I thought it was 8 inches! okay, okay, for those of you who lack sense of humor, I am JUST KIDDING! it's 7 inches in fact.

  17. Hazy: My intent was not to attack you and if you felt so, I apologize. I am only pointing out the fact that in any industry, every time there is some kind of issue, instead of using common sense to improve it, some think the only solution is regulations after regulations. A functional society does not necessarily mean an over regulated one. Cheers
  18. Hazy: do you really think legislation will prevent stupidity? This is our society's problem where some think legislations will make individuals use common sense and become responsible. I totally disagree with the legislative babysitter attitude. Time to grow up.
  19. I guess we can all agree that Canada is made of compromises, EH! If, one day, such new regulation would take place, some degree of flexibility will have to be included. Such flexibility might come through new Ops Specs. If not, we will kiss goodbye many pilots and most small operators, especially the one man/one machine. Is this the real intent? “Degreasing” the industry? We hear all the time “there are too many Operators and not enough work….
