  1. In my experience the carrot is usually offered after I’ve committed to moving on. I always wondered why if I was good enough to be offered a medium endorsement (or something) after gave my notice, then why wasn’t I before…? 🙄
  2. Exactly. Also, I worked for years under NAFTA in the US as a Canadian Licensed pilot and citizen. If a Canadian operator can’t provide the service…
  3. Thank you Carholme for calling out the cherry-picking of a sad accident for furtherance of ones own agenda/propaganda. That is the worst kind of opportunism…
  4. Alex Jones? Isn’t he the guy who is losing lawsuits to the parents of the kids massacred at Sandy Hook for his baseless claims that that was all fake and the parents were “crisis actors”? What an azzhole…
  5. Man, there has been some nonsense written in this thread…

  7. Perhaps because there is nothing new in a wire strike and/or a roll over accident as awful as the results might be. Stupid people who choose to turn down a good option to increase their odds of not getting very ill or surviving an illness because ignorance/gullibility/ideology is probably new to most of us. A sign of the times…
  8. Project Veritas? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Veritas Oh, please…
  9. It’s too bad there isn’t a vaccine for gullibility…🙄
  10. RIP to one of the pillars of rotary wing aviation in western Canada. He was admirable in skill, kindness, and personality. What awful news. Condolences to both his immediate family and his Yellowhead family. Baker
  11. Nearly 20 years and I have been there many times. It’s just a good example that everyone knows about and it’s much more clear than the “well the other guy did it” argument.
  12. If anyone pressure a pilot into this kind of situation, they should be asked if they know who Kobe Bryant was...that should set ‘em straight.
  13. 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...
  14. 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 t
  15. 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...
  16. Northern Air Support. Wow, 10 pages in this thread and no one has said anything insulting! That has got to be a record!!
  17. Try wool instead, it might help with dexterity 😀!
  18. +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
  19. 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
  20. 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
