  1. There’s a good chance that the border will be closed still, so in order to cut losses operators are likely to cancel their seasons IMHO...
  2. Rainbow Lake is nice year round! DP is absolutely right. What a load of sh!t. Everyone one knows that there are no agreements that will hold water when it favours employers. Don’t move for them. They’ll let you go as soon they feel they have to and say something stupid like “we’re running a business”. We are all running businesses; every household is a business. I have learnt that the hard way over the years with lots of empty promises and lies. At this stage in my career (20 years now), if i was told something like that I wouldn’t walk, I’d run. I understand that this has been a bad year and people are desperate (?) but that seems like extortion to me... S
  3. Talk to a good accountant (you’ll need one anyway). You’ll need a GST #, and have to set up a corporation with your province. It’s been a long time since i had one and since dissolved it...
  4. Northern Air Support. Wow, 10 pages in this thread and no one has said anything insulting! That has got to be a record!!
  5. Try wool instead, it might help with dexterity 😀!
  6. +1 for layering. my biggest discomfort due to previous frostbite injury (thanks Don at RLO!) is frozen fingers. A combination that I have found effective is a thin woolen glove worn inside Black Diamond Gloves. They (Black D. used to, at least) make these with leather palms and thumb and index finger leather tips which still allowed for feeling if messing with switches and radios etc as well as really good dexterity. in really cold weather or deep snow (skiing), Sorels were my go-to for foot wear... hth s
  7. There are many clients that have minimum hour requirements for simple stuff that a 100 hr guy could do which a prospective employee with 3000 hrs of tours could be easily placed in. Then if the employer was interested in developing him/her and broadening their skill set then they will have an asset who (if treated properly; they are human beings after all!) will stick around and make the companies customers happy. Win/win for everyone! Too bad that the 100 hr pilot couldn’t do it (eg; lease site servicing etc) but it is what it is... there is so much complaining about lack of qualified staff by companies and forum members but it seems little effort to bring people in (or up) from within. I think companies have to take some ownership of the experience crunch.
  8. The names were in the CBC’s article two days ago. They did not publish a cause. You seem ready to assign blame saying somebody “GOOFED”. Perhaps you should let TSB in on what you know
  9. Q: Would TSB know the cause in such a short period of time? A: No Sad news indeed. Condolences to the families in what should be a happy time of year...
  10. He also forgot the apostrophe in “youre”. S’posed to be you’re... Idiot
  11. jeez 1cloud, sounds like you used to work for ruperts land.
  12. for those of you who live out east, do you know where in montreal i can pick up a current CFS and VNC's, please? thanks in advance. s
  13. i was on a ferry trip from new york to texas (a canadian in a C-reg machine (uh-oh!)) and somewhere over kentucky on one of the local airport frequencies (122.7 or 122.8 i beleive) i heard a huge belch over the radio.
  14. you are on the right track (and not to muddy the waters mind you) but keep in mind if you are at a low enough pressure altitude and you can only pull to 94% Q and you haven't reached 98% NG that will be your first limit. you might be overtorqueing the machine 98 % NG at 40 + kts IAS. as long as the bleed valve is closed you can still do a power check.
