  1. Not sure, but it looks like maybe FPMR in the photos...? It's not a Single
  2. Proud to be part of this team as well Awesome work guys.
  3. Thanks, I should have been more clear in the original post. I just wanted to share an interesting photo. By no means is this a recent crash..
  4. I'm tired of reading all these sales pitches from Red Eagle's marketing department. Maybe they are a pretty good training outfit, I don't know. Though, if I was in the market for a license I certainly wouldn't give them a lot of consideration solely based on the used car salesman-like demeanor they have impressed upon me through their posts on this forum. Just sayin.
  5. Just came across a couple interesting photos of a helicopter crash in Afghanistan this morning. Looks like dynamic rollover but it is hard to say: Captured Collection: David Guttenfelder in Afghanistan
  6. Wow, that's an impressive video! Makes me proud to have come from that school *tear* Also kind of cool to see all the Canadore Aviation hoodies still being worn (designed by yours truly). I Thought those would live and die with the 2008 class. Guess not! Rock on, great work.
  7. Hey thanks, man! Yeah, nothing can replace studying the real thing, but I guess this program was just to keep me thinking about this stuff even when I'm not really "studying". It's easy to forget lots of stuff when you don't fly very often...
  8. Should work with XP or later versions on any type of system, just needs Microsoft .NET 3.5 installed Also make sure you extract the zip file to a directory before running the program because it needs the WPFTaskbarNotifer.dll file to run.
  9. Only runs on Windows XP and later versions... sorry!
  10. Hey guys, I just wanted to share a program I put together in case it might benefit some of you. Since I spend a lot of time on the computer, I thought that it might be nice to have a program that pops up a random PPC question every few minutes so I always have the aircraft limitations and procedures fresh in my head. I looked around on the web, but couldn't find anything that worked the way I wanted it to, so I decided to create the program myself. A few days later "Bob's Study Helper" was born! (yeah I know the name could use some work). It's worked great for me, hopefully it might work for others as well. The program is very simple, it just pops up a random question in the bottom right hand corner of your screen at the interval you choose. Once you've thought about it, there is a button to check the answer. The questions come from a question file (XML file for you techies) that you specify when you first open the program. The question file is a text file with a structure like this: <Items> <Item> <Subject>Topic of the question goes here</Subject> <Question>Question goes here</Question> <Answer>Answer goes here</Answer> </Item> ...and repeat </Items> I've built a (crappy) website where you can download the program and question files: http://www.surenet.net/~bobbymak/StudyHelper/ Currently, I only have a Bell 206 limitations question file, but I'll be adding more soon. If anybody is interested in adding more question files, just email me the file. Also, if you just want to write out a bunch of helicopter questions, I'd be glad to create the question file myself and post it on the web site. Sorry if this is little too technical for some. I tried my best to make it simple without it taking too much time for me to put together. If you have any questions at all feel free to PM me or reply here and I'll try to help you as best as I can. -Bob MacDonald
