  1. Sad, sad news. I worked with Big Al too, from spraying in Guatemala to putting out fires in Canada. Spent his 70th birthday with him in Dryden drinking beer and enjoying his company along with some other fine fellows. I have a huge measure of respect and learned an awful lot from the big humble gentleman with the wealth of experience who was always willing to share his insight if you were wise enough to ask him. Might have heard most of the firefighting in Spain stories more than once over a bottle of Crown Royal or two in the Remote crew house too , but they never got old .
  2. Due to possible expansion we could be looking for an AME in the near future full time at the Prince Rupert BC Canadian Coast Guard base in Seal Cove. Types operated are Bell 412 EPI and Bell 429 rotorcraft. I will post a link up when the competition process starts in the event their might be some folks interested.
  3. Airbus had nothing that fit the RFP requirements and therefore didnt bid, While the 145 T2 would certainly have been a contender it is not certified in Canada. Bell won with the only machine that came out to play and met the performance criteria stated in the RFP. The 429's will be a huge improvement over the BO 105's and I personally can hardly wait to see the damned things gone.

  5. Superwrench has it right, Its a fuel pump issue that they have been working on for at least 2 years. We had a modified pump on an engine in PNG that seemed to work that we were trialing when I was there.

  9. thanks for the update redrag, it appears things have changed and I stand corrected
  10. Stanley owns Mac, Facom owns SK Its awful hard to beat SK ratchets & wrenches , Snap on , Proto , Mac , Klein pliers, Fluke meters and Daniels. If you check ebay most stuff can be purchased used in good shape for a third to a half of what the bandits on the truck want for it. Tools like women , trucks , boats , houses etc are a personal choice but I would recomend that a guy working on multi million dollar equiptment at least buy North American quality tools and stay away from the mastercraft/ Canadian craftsman/Princess auto offshore junk thats pedaled to the guy wanting to chan
  11. got an answer by email, all is well thanks all
