  1. Call Delta in St Albert. I think they may still be looking as well. 204/205
  2. Now I remember why I walked away from this board... It used to be a wealth of information. Now its just a place for some disgruntled ex-employees to try to sling mud. So sad...
  3. I would venture a guess that you are possibly just trying to stir up some $*@t... Why would that be?
  4. I think that was an A-Star that hit its 12 year limit. Sheesh....gotta love the rumour mill... I find it interesting as well that these posts get started by someone with a 1 post credit.
  5. Another favourite at Helijet was when I was flying across the Georgia Straight at 4500'. Getting close to YVR and I see a Shorts aircraft lifting off 08R, in the right turn and headed my way..... Vancouver Center: Helijet 712, There is a Shorts in the climb , your 2 o'clock low, AS WELL AS, a floatplane at your 11 o'clock. Me: Roger Center, I have the Shorts down low.....Beaver in sight!!!
  6. Flying for Helijet around 1999-2000. Sitting on the pad ready to go. Me: Harbour tower, Helijet 711 ready to go. Tower: Helijet 711, standby. I wait 2 minutes and call again. Once again I am told to standby. During this time it was very busy in the airspace. Lots of floatplanes coming and going and the Lady in the tower was getting stressed. I wait another 2 minutes and now I am getting antsy because we are on a schedule and leaving 5 minutes late meant a bit of paperwork. Me: Tower, Helijet 711, I am on a schedule here....let's go! Tower (now she sounded angry and stressed): Helijet 711, just let me get this Beaver going and I will get you off! Me: Tower.....ok.... for THAT, I will wait..... 30 seconds of complete silence on the radio..... Tower: Helijet 711, you are cleared for take off....get out of my airspace!!!! Me: Thank you Tower....Have a nice day!
  7. I have a miniPad that I suction cup to the windshield of my medium utilizing an Ram "X" holder. Never had an issue. Trick is to check that it is not loose before you fire up. I also velcro a battery pack on the dash to keep it powered because Foreflight sucks ALOT of battery power!
  8. THIS....was flying bags! One pic at the top of the Ramparts near Norman Wells, The other taken near Cambridge Bay NWT.
  9. Heard a EC130 went down in BC? Pilot injured and medicated to hospital. Anyone know more?
  10. I am insured with PPIP. The requirement is to be holding an ATPL licence. I have $250K coverage for $55.00 a month. Excellent plan.
  11. Wow...this is sad. Dave was there when I first started in this business. He was always encouraging to the "low-timer". God speed Dave....RIP
  12. You can do an instructor ride with Cathy at Chinook in Abbotsford. Right up to a Class 1 ride.
  13. I always like to quote a good buddy of mine (and agree ) ..... "I don't get out of bed for less than $1500.00 a day!" I don't give out my rates as they are between me and the company but I will say this: "don't sell yourself short"!
