  1. Ya, you might be right. Nice one. I like how they opened with the definition of CRM and it clearly states 'crew members', however, we only need to be concerned with what comes after the word "shall" which is flight crew, like you pointed out.
  2. Thanks, thats how I was understanding it, I guess I just didn't want to believe it. Typical, a new TC reg, perfectly suited to fixed wing operators.
  3. I'm not trying to make the can of worms bigger, but just to clarify... For CRM purposes TC is only considering "crew" members to be those employed by the operator, correct? I only ask because according to their definition of 'crew member' the fire fighters I fly around looking for smoke are crew members, so are the guys doing the line patrol, the fire fighter hooking up the net, etc, etc. To say that all of those mentioned would have to take not only my operators CRM course but every operators CRM course that they fly with is well, you get the point.
  4. One of the best bits of advice I've ever been given was by a co-worker of mine when he looked at my resume. We were both in the process of looking for new jobs, and I had the flying job I had at the time, as well as all the other jobs I'd ever had on there. He said "you want to keep flying helicopters or build more decks and finish some more concrete? Get those other jobs off of there" He was right. Don't offer your accounting skills, or your self proclaimed spatial awareness (whatever that is), or your fantastic physicality (whatever that is) to your future employer, you're trying to ge
  5. It has nothing to do with provincial ambulance services, in my opinion,... What about a local SAR team using a B2 to fly an injured snow mobiler out of an avalanche? If the guy is dying why shouldn't that Astar be allowed to land at the hospital?
  6. Hey there, does anyone know of a place in North America where I could get a screen for a 296? I bough a refurbished unit from a guy on eBay. The screen is being temperamental at best. I called Garmin, it's over the 90 day warranty AND they no longer carry, sell or make parts for these units and they won't repair them either (as of November 2014). I found a few places in China on google but it would be nice to have 'local' dealer for parts and repair! Thanks!
  7. There was a thread on here awhile ago but I cant seem to find it. Is it possible to claim the cost of a new helmet at tax time? If so, how did you do it? Cheers
  8. I'm looking for an extension cord with an inline volume control. Anyone have one they would sell or know where to get one in Canada?
  9. What specifically did you find was poor about the quality Chopper Guy? Just curious as I'm looking at getting one myself. I talked directly to the dealer and from what he told me they sounded pretty good (obviously) but he also said they have a 30 money back deal... for any reason if a customer isn't satisfied they'll refund the helmet no questions asked.
  10. I worked for the taxable benefit place. Here's how it worked... Every month you would have $1000 put onto your pay check, get taxed on it, and have $1000 removed after taxes, E.I. etc. The house was nice.... but after it was renovated it had 10 bedrooms (very often all full) and 2 bathrooms. During the summer I was there the owner/operator imported/hired 5 mexicans (you can pay them less than minimum wage via some loophole, who also lived in the house sharing a bedroom and sleeping on the floor. There are reasons the front door there is a revolving one and its hard to find a Canadian accent in
  11. Thanks fellas, just wanted to make sure I haven't and wasn't about to break any rules. (customers were dead set on the Class D being required) I'll second your net suggestion, it is definitely the way to go Skidz. As for your humor... ya kinda funny. Haha
  12. I'm pretty sure I know the answer, and I'm also sure there is someone on here who can save me the time digging through CAR's to find it. If one is faced with the unpleasant job of recovering a body is a class D cert required?
