  3. I've sat in on the Aero Course Instrument rating where Peter Shewring was the instructor, highly recommend him, well worth the cash, and their gouges of exam questions are updated every few weeks or so.
  4. If your willing to go, American Eurocopter offers AS355 Training, see http://www.eurocopterusa.com/Training/TrainingHome.asp for info.
  5. Blackcomb Helicopters/Omega have 2 Twinstars as well as Helico 2000 in Quebec (I think that was their name)
  6. My condolences to the Norie family, and to Frank's friends. A true industry pioneer, God speed. I found this poem on another aviation site: Flying West I hope there's a place, way up in the sky, Where pilots can go, when they have to die. A place where a guy can buy a cold beer For a friend and a comrade, whose memory is dear; A place where no doctor or lawyer can tread, Nor a management type would ere be caught dead; Just a quaint little place, kind of dark, full of smoke, Where they like to sing loud, and love a good joke; The kind of a place where a lady could go And feel safe and protected, by the men she would know. There must be a place where old pilots go, When their paining is finished, and their airspeed gets low. Where the whiskey is old, and the women are young, And songs about flying and dying are sung. Where you'd see all the fellows who'd flown west before, And they'd call out your name as you came through the door. Who would buy you a drink, if your thirst should be bad, And relate to the others, "He was quite a good lad!" And then through the mist, you'd spot an old guy, You had not seen in years, though he taught you to fly. He'd nod his old head, and grin ear to ear; And say, "Welcome, my son, I'm pleased that you're here." "For this is the place where true flyers come," "When their journey is over, and the war has been won." "They've come here at last to be safe and alone" "From the government clerks and the management drones," "Politicians and lawyers, the Feds and the noise," "Where all hours are happy, and these good ole boys" "Can relax with a cool one, and a well deserved rest;" "This is heaven, my son......You've passed your last test!" Rest in Peace Mr. Norie
  7. A pool pilot is a pilot that travels from base to base, field job to field job, filling in everywhere the company/customer needs them, where as a base pilot flies out of a fixed location (town) for the company. A pool pilot generally works a shift of X weeks on/ X weeks off.
  8. Any word what changes they will make changes to Bailey? or just let DP run the place.
  9. I was in a similiar situation with TC, with my vision, I cannot even see the big E on the chart, as well as I have astigmatism, so between the two, I cannot see 20/200 uncorrected which is in the CAR's for eye sight uncorrected, but with correction (I use glasses/contact lenses) I can see 20/20. So what happend with my Class 1 Medical was, is a report from my Eye Dr. was obtained, kicked over to TC, they reviewed the file, and gave me a Class 1 Medical. TC has the final say in this kind of situation. Hope this helps. Matt
  10. In the start menu, Right click on the program (in this case OPEN350), click properties, in the properties box, go to the compatibility tab, check "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the drop down box select OS of choice (Win XP in this case) hit Apply, then OK. Hope this helps, Matt
