  1. Do you have issues with me?


    1. Harmonic_Vibe


      I remember you in the english pub off pizza street

    2. sirlandsalot


      Whatever that is supposed to mean.  I am surprised you can remember anything from pizza street. 

  2. I don’t come here very often because the quality of conversation is low, or so it seems. I have returned just because a couple dozen people told me I should. Reaper whatever the #### your name is, please call me or identify yourself... and your idiot friend, please call me or identify yourself. Otherwise #### off. My number is 1 403 584 7190 Both of you please post numbers to discuss your moral superiority... I await your calls HV
  3. Holy crap that is terrible. Ol' Eddy was one of those characters unique to our industry... the kind of guy who would have been home on a ship raiding Spanish galleons in the 1600's. He deserved much better and should have retired into a comfortable chair to reflect on all he'd accomplished, and not against small odds. RIP HV
  4. I found a stack of old Okanagan newsletters in a filing cabinet... absolutely incredible to read them.. and the picturesI I got my first job in aviation in 1989 and reading these things makes me feel like a baby... I cannot tip my hat enough to the pioneers who actually managed to fly aircraft with climb rates of less than 500 FPM in the mountains! And then teach others how to do the same... amazing... Anyway, here are a few pics... there are hundreds but I limited it to people I actually know... Terry Dixon with hair is priceless! HV Collection_of_Pics_from_RotorTal
  5. Can’t message, PM me

  6. Contact me, 10,000 FAA ATPL, Spanish, longline, medium, etc...

  7. Horrible news. I assumed he'd be in Vancouver for the events over the next few days and was absolutely stunned to hear he wasn't going to make it. A sad and tragic passing and all condolences for family and friends. HV
  8. Oops... I literally thought almost everything I wrote would be censored... but since it's not, I hope the point still come across. It's not as funny as I planned with the actual words on display! But I stand behind every one. HV
  9. Sir Lands, please do not feel I'm picking on you, just using your post, which I think is fairly stated and to the point, as a good example. Do we work in private enterprise or are we State Owned? If an operator does most of their work in the winter and is able to allocate no fixed costs to their aircraft in the summer, the opposite of most, are we able to make a reasoned argument of unfairness, or are we just bee-atching (notice my clever workaround for these filters on this site that disable words like #### for no reason) because we don't benefit? As an Operator and in Management, I can
  10. When we say customer service reps, that is a very broad topic. People in the Philippines working from a call center under sweat shop conditions are often on the other end of the phone. It's frustrating when they have trouble understanding you and I am always amazed at how polite they are!! Offshoring that type of thing is what you should protest, not the seeming lack of help you sometimes receive. There is little doubt they're working hard. If we're talking about service reps in the Canadian helicopter industry, such as Bell or Safran or Rolls, etc, then I must take exception with anyone
  11. Holy cow, just read this. Best wishes for full recovery! HV
  12. I would like to know more about Rome....

    3500 hrs.

    currently working 2 and 2's year round


  13. I used "argue" in the sense it used to have, "give reasons or cite evidence in support of an idea, action, or theory, typically with the aim of persuading others to share one's view", rather than what we usually think of today... raised voices, spilled beer, followed by a head butt and yet another ruined shirt from rolling around on the floor! I have zero doubt, based on many calculations, that a 400 hour year for a B2 requires somewhere from 1800 to 2000 an hour. It varies because of geography, industry sector (pilots get paid more to move diamond drills in the mountains than they do to
  14. Good morning, I see you were up early checking your stocks! Now not wanting to argue (ok, I actually do), I feel the need to point out some material differences from US Corporate and Canadian Utility. I have attached "B2 Variable" so you can see the breakdown of variable costs. I have zeroed labour because we, as an industry, employ engineers full time and it's not that useful to assign an hourly labour cost to a single aircraft, without knowing a lot more factors. ConklinDedecker says it's $108 USD per hour flown in maintenance labour and a corporate aircraft, always hangared, using an A
