  1. But you might get to land 75+ times a day? Wouldnt that fit your handle well?
  2. Down is best for pack ability but leave it in a compression sack for a season and it will be worthless for insulation when you need it most. It a balance between cost, pack ability, durability and maintenance. Down needs to be stored uncompressed and able to breathe. With tracking these days I notice less pilots carrying sleeping bags.
  3. Talk to this guy.... Tell him Dion sent you Shaq Tcherni [email protected]
  4. Most schools will train you to Class 4 but will want a time commitment from you to get you through the supervision required to advance to Class 3 and Class 2.
  5. You have bit of homework to do. Some companies may be set up to pay you contract as long as you or rather your corporation are set up that way. If you are working as an employee cra will want to know if the aussies tax at the same rate as canada. You will want all the required proof of that for your canada tax return.
  6. Yes, I have worked for Cathy in the past and indeed when I get a chance it is likely I will go there for the renewal. Thanks
  7. I noticed TC has the dates for the fixed wing courses up but nothing for helicopters this year or next. Has anyone heard if there will be one this year? Cheers
  8. Minutemans 210 stopped through here from Alaska the other day going home to Montana. Is the 212 ep what killed that program?
  9. pretty sure chinook have it published on their site somewhere
  10. You can order it for a new aircraft. Very spendy. I think it is more like the EC120 system, VEMD and a throttle but no FADEC.
  11. you may have some luck looking for an AS550 fennec flight manual.
  12. Darren , I notice Air Nav Pro is available on google play. Do you know anyone using it on an android device for comparison to an Ipad?
  13. I am curious what it is costing companies for recurrent training of pilots? I realize that it varies from type to type but what does it cost these days to bring in say the Airbus instructors or Rocky and Ken? What is the cost to send pilots down south? Thanks in advance
  14. But thats partly because of the GA support in the lower 48. I am sure even if you just landed the guy in the tower/FBO would have made sure things were sorted for you to stay/refuel etc. Its funny here north of 60 to see all the traffic heading up to Alaska in the spring. No CFS, No charts. Just an Ipad and the applicable software and wx info that works withing 10 miles of a cell tower. Last year 7 Cessnas landed at Burwash due weather without any calls on either 26.7 or 22.1 Cars guy wrote them all up and it seems their Ipad software was missing the coms for the whole of Yukon. I guess you can default to "say nothing" when that occurs. Either way I dont fly along the highway in summer above 1000 agl.
