  1. Skidz, you and Helilog56 have my respect for what you are trying to do. I have spoken with BK and I do like the idea but as long as a certain person is at the helm or anywhere near it...count me out. It's not the money.....strictly the principle "make my day"......what a joke
  2. Having worked in the Middle East and experienced the "mindset" there I can tell you exactly what the investigation will conclude......... The fault will be placed squarely on the shoulders of the "PIC" That's about all I can really say..... fearing cencorship :down:
  3. not worth my time...............
  4. and now you threaten someone else???? that you can have them stripped of their job???? :shock: :shock: :shock:
  5. 412,what happened to your instruction skills calling somebody a young'un? What gives you the right? I NEVER DID, READ WHAT I WROTE..... How much more condescending can you to get. MUCH MORE BUT I WASN'T HERE......... or were you just born knowing it all. IMHO NO BUT OTHERS DISAGREE There is absolutely nothing wrong with TaylorM's post, in fact it's right on the ball. I AGREED BY APPLAUDING HIS YOUTHFUL VIGOUR Try being CONSTRUCTIVE instead of DESTRUCTIVE. DOES THAT MEAN TO BE TOLERANT LIKE YOU? Don, your last post is unacceptable. Hey, aren't you one of the directors of HEPAC? Big F%#*&n' black eye amigo........... :down: :down: :down:
  6. i appreciate your youthful vigor young TM but T-rex is right..............
  7. try flight school.................................. :punk: :punk: :punk:
  8. Just heard it driving home. Man, that is so tragic. To all at Bighorn and the families of those lost, my deepest condolences..... May God grant all His perfect peace................
  9. no downsizing........... boss came in and sent 5 engineers and 5 apprentices packing. had to pay out their contracts ect. couple days later he thought..."[email protected]#*", that was dumb"... and started to call them all back. 2 of the engineers came back. so if they were short engineers before...they are down another 3........... and no....i can't explain it...................
  10. thanks for that.......... glad everyone is ok!! :up:
  11. back when i was at CHC, they ran a base out of there. do they still and anyone get any reports?
  12. remember, alot has to do with the instructor rather than just the school. although you can get good training in the flats, learning in the mountains IMHO is so much better. there are a couple of great instructors and schools in the lower mainland (BC) that i would recommend but the best thing is to visit the schools personally. spend time there, literally hang out for a morning or afternoon. a good school will make you feel right at home and comfortable. my 10 pesos worth.........
  13. Although I know nothing about the school in question. It sounds like you are in the military so I DO want to thank you for your service to our country. This is a good place to ask questions. Remember, for the most part, we are a salty bunch of pr#*ks with a stupid sense of humour. But if you hang in long enough, you will get the info you need.... just ask Cole... :up: 412driver

  15. we came out when we WANTED to come out. back then some pilots actually enjoyed being out and working. heck...9 weeks was nothing..... my first two summers went from May-October. STRAIGHT!! I wasn't complaining,I was flying :punk: I'm sure there are alot of guys out there done the same.............. oh...PAINT LAKE.... with Charles in charge!! you want the cabin for sure. ya, i slept in that sauna above the kitchen...holy crap that was hot!!
  16. HAHA I know them well. I broke the 1000 hr mark slinging stuff into Tommy Lakes when it was being built. What a great time. I believe that tour was 9 weeks straight! oh ya..i didn't want to come home......i had a big bar tab to pay off in FSJ Yup, 9 weeks. funny how we would get wx'd in for a couple days and I'd get my time zero'd :up:
  17. haha...ain't that old sorry....with campbell
  18. aahhh MQN..... broke my medium cherry on that old girl
  19. don't forget those lovely places in northern manitoba from berens river right up to lynn lake and leaf rapids to name a few shyteholes...........
  20. forgot to mention. 107 and 108. look for my white dodge truck 412driver
  21. i should be there on tuesday. swing by the shop. 1280 commercial 412driver
  22. i have to share this............. even though i am not teaching right now, i get a call yesterday from a company i have worked for in the past. they need a low time pilot for scanning that will turn into a flying job..............pronto! i access a file out of the ol grey matter, "got just the kid for ya, he'll call you shortly" call my student, arrange the meet and greet, get a call from the student a couple hours later.... "thanks for getting me the job" :up: THAT's what teaching is really about. I have taught in the 300 and the 47 and i think the 47 makes you (the student) work harder which i (among others) believe produces better pilot skills. oh, and the kid that got the job? GREAT attitude, first to show up, last to leave and when he wasn't studying he was helping the engineers in the hangar. something to think about my 10 pesos for the day!
  23. yes, my first 2 summers were in the arctic flying a bell 47g2 on floats! :up:
