  3. It would be used more if it was part of the email like it used to be
  4. Great, now i would get the forums on the bottom of the email like it used to be I would be very happy. The activity on the forums has almost died off since that change was put in
  5. bambi bucket?
  6. So 5 people. 2 of them on a line hooked to the skid.... Snappy 44
  7. Don't go in to it with negative opinions. You just never know, right person, right time, making a good connection with the right person... anything is possible. I just walked into doors few years back, got a chance to help out, cleaned everything, cars floors, helicopters, offices, ops gear you name it. got Ppc'd and now full time. No one should listen to the people saying that there is none, you never know. If you are willing to work your *** off and don't expect anything you can only get happily surprised...
  8. Anyone knows what load limit there is on this swivel? I know the can am/dart one has 3000lbs is this the same? cant fint anything on it
  9. isnt this just a way for the operator to use the derated engine to its full capacity? By applying it at altitude? What is the difference with the c47b and the c47/8 engine? a weak attempt to try to stay close to eagles engine mod?
  10. lets get new life in this thread. Love reading the opinion and experiences of others, lets throw in 407 and 407HP in the mix, anyone flown the HP? is it close to a b3 at altitude then?
  11. interesting, you would think that garmin fears the loss in revenue by foreflight and all the other apps that are coming, produce an app that would make any tablet like the 795 for example charge a high yearly and people would go for it, and you dont have to manufacture anything... cause at 149 us a year, average current gps must be atleast 10 years, so its more beneficial in the long run. I would not replace a 396 296 496 with a tablet, but I would use it as a back up, or as a primary with the 396 as a backup..
  12. a legend, such an good example how to conduct yourself in this industry. He will be missed, my very deepest condolences to his family. Cant believe the bad luck... geeeez
  13. Just want to see if anyone out there is using the Garmin pilot app on an ipad or android, how is it working? pros? cons? How does the waypoint stuff work? marking? storing, transfer from a 296? Can you get canadian vfr charts for it? M
  14. been looking high and dry as well.. nothing
  15. Helilog hahaha that I would love to see! I think the main issue is having pilots fresh out of school, or a few years in, teaching new students.. eventually there will be a crash.. Thats where the US is lacking.. In Canada its going that way with insurance rates going up etc, but hey, if we had better trainers, wouldnt there less incidents? I am very fortunate to do my recurrent with a extremely good training pilot. And there is full ons all the day from all angles height speed weights, how else are you gonna learn? We do them in both 44's and 206's You imagine having full seats in any machine, and the stove quits at 50 ft on final to a hill, atleast if you have done em, you might be able to save a few souls, if all you done is power recovery on a flat fielt, run ons etc... its not gonna end well. I Think TC should implement mandatory full ons during initial and recurrent training...
