  1. Until things happen no one knows, good grief maybe there will be mergers maybe new companies will form.... I've been around long enough to know things change so much that until things happen it isn't so! This is getting ridiculous, I said what I heard and that's all I'm going to say. rhis went on a tangent way off the rails ......
  2. Oh well some people need drama in their lives. I for one don't lol
  3. Had I said "an unspecified group of companies" in lieu of "six" in my original post in sure people would have jumped on that too. Jeez like walking on egg shells in these forums
  4. Read the rules of conduct. Spreading names in any industry like that is garbage. My original post was to wish struggling companies well "THATS IT"
  5. I was merely stressing how hard things were by citing things I've heard. (a) Who cares about naming names & (2) it's not my business to disclose specifics on a public forum with a headlining disclaimer and code of conduct. Things will rear their heads themselves and my crystal ball is broken... Especially with this industry lol
  6. I've heard from a few sources, heard the names too but it isn't "all" from the horses mouth so I won't say. I'm not trying to single anyone out and it doesn't matter who is suffering. The fact that 6 companies may no longer exist is all I was pointing out. It's tough times and wish everyone luck staying alive.
  7. There are 6 operators shutting down in BC this year and 7 mediums I know of not flying this season coming...... That's huge.... Everyone keep your pants done up
  8. Bell 206 tab tools "new style" as well as as350 needed. Inbox me if you have a set you want to get rid of.
  9. @DirtyBH47 YA man I was looking at that as well. That's decent pay, heavy duty is alright but it's heavy work not for most people... I'll look into it too haha
  10. PS heavy duty and welding are the two most in demand trades in alberta. Good for thought
  11. All you wrenches in alberta might wanna start thinking about challenging years in a similar trade. I did it glad I did. Rotary industry is on its knees and it's been getting worse every year since 2008. Best of luck to everyone
  12. For those that havent read a dictionary... trade trād/ noun a skilled job, typically one requiring manual skills and special training. "the fundamentals of the construction trade" synonyms: craft, occupation, job, career, profession, business, line of work, line, métier, vocation, calling, walk of life, field; work, employment, livelihood
  13. After over 12 years of field maintenance repair and overhauling aircraft and engines AME is 100% a trade. It's just not a "red seal" or provincially controlled trade, it is a federal license. That's why the other trades won't credit the experience because they have no reference to cirriculum or knowledge. A red deal trade however is INDUSTRY CONTROLLED. And that is why you are allowed to challenge all but one year "1500hrs work and 8 weeks school in alberta". It is doable but not the most thorough way to get trained. You just have to convince the employer of your competence going in and they can grant you hours based on your past experience. Look into it I did it and glad I did.... Still working on aircraft too. Best of luck!
