  1. I work directly with people who are in that environment. NONE of them are impressed. It is hard to hear the #### stories they tell of death and preventable sickness.
  2. its JohnS Hopkins, and it is NOT government subsidized. The Wall Street Journal Article is dates, as there has now been a third and fourth wave that has decimated some of the points made since March of 2021. I'm sure the author is quite embarrassed. Get your shot, stay healthy. I don't think 2 percent chance to die is particularly great odds if you get sick. I'd call them ****** odds.
  3. This is just a small tidbit from BC https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/unvaccinated-vaccinated-covid-data-bc-1.6151008 Generally speaking, the statistics show that you CAN get sick with double vaccines, and a booster is likely going to be required, but the statistics ALSO show that the majority of people in the hospitals and almost ALL of the people in ICU are unvaccinated. SO get the vaccine, protect yourself and other. Longhaul Covid does not look fun. I know of people who have died, and I know people who used to be very fit, who are now not able to walk to the mailbox
  4. Well we are getting ever closer to the mandatory date... it'll be interesting to see how many will fall on their swords. I know a couple of Covidiots that are refusing.
  5. Sorry for delayed response. Unfortunately this is a predominately Canadian forum, so not much help to be had with regards to the WOFT process. Sorry I can't be of more help!
  6. If you are air ambulance, then yes, if not no.
  7. AND have a Multi Crew Coordination course, which is another sim course to allow you to fly in a multi pilot crew. It's a lot of a bear, and I wish I hadn't let mine lapse, but alas. Not heading over to europe anytime soon anyway. As far as the middle east, I'd double down and get the US FAA ATPL as well, these days it's just a conversion exam. Cheers Harald
  8. the one in Carp is a UH-1M, a marine version of the C huey with Magnesium instead of Aluminum skin for maritime conditions.
  9. Ahahahahaha... Hahahaha. Well in Thompson there IS a liquor store, a Tim's and a Boston Pizza...
  10. The restrictions that are disqualifying for doing this are listed as: Limitations and Restrictions Holders of medical certificates bearing any of the following limitations or restrictions are required to undergo a medical examination pursuant to the conditions of this exemption: a) License restricted; b) Permit restricted; c) 3 months only; d) 6 months only; e) 9 months only; f) 12 months only; g) 24 months only; h) Subject to letter dated; i) Private Pilot License (PPL) privileges – 12 months only; j) Valid only when anoth
  11. In Central Newfoundland, 20 KM west of Clarenville, 1 deceased, 2 injured. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/thorburn-lake-helicopter-crash-investigation-begins-1.5657022
  12. Nope RDM-1, not in the daytime! haha What was not pointed out is that a good steerable searchlight is very good at lighting up objects, and a surprisingly good help to you. Also, when flying in daylight you can't see the little hotspots until they start smoking, with the goggles you can see the glow of the fire under the surface and can attack that. Not quite as well as scanning but you can still see incredibly well. I've seen and reported fires in areas scanned and reported out, with goggles without there have been thunderstorms or other reason for the fire to appear a
  13. I can attest to the added fatigue of wearing goggles, you add a good 2lbs to your head, and it does certainly feel that way after 8 hours of continuous wear! As has been stated over, there are traps, and you have to be aware and be extra vigilant in both planning and execution of low level stuff, but it also has changed everything I ever thought I knew about night flying! Won't change back, that's for sure!
  14. From having flown near fires with NVG's, that would be extremely helpful. you can even see hot spots that you can't see with naked eye close up at night. Tanking at night particularly would be great deal in the prairies for sure!
  15. Take offs and landings are just that, the registration of the aircraft matters not, as it is not a licensing issue. Just currency/recency.
