  5. Looks like a Mooney M20C is going to be up for sale pretty soon...
  6. Sorry Bob, but your figures are skewed somewhat. I know companies will hire lots of low-time pilots and put them on ground crew. Those who make the cut might be flying three or four years down the road. I think you need to look at who's still in the industry after five years. I know that's hard to do in the absence of TC stats, but you can do simple math: Back in 2008 when the last stats were released by TC, there are approximately 2000 commercial helicopter pilots with a TC license that kept their medicals up to date each year. This included all of the low-timers and others who don't fly
  7. 2014-11-06 Further Action Required: No O.P.I.: Narrative: UPDATE: TSB Report#A14P0183: The Helijet Sikorsky S-76A (C-GHJL) was on a test flight about 7 nm S of CYVR when the number 2 engine (Allison 250-C30S) experienced an uncommanded acceleration. The crew reduced power to the number 2 engine, declared an emergency and returned to CYVR for an uneventful landing. The number 2 engine and N2 governor had been recently replaced because of an 18 October 2014 power-loss event (occurrence number A14P0175) and engine chip light events on 23 and 25 O

  10. A new forum for CADORS and related stuff is now open from the root of the forums. I'll be moving the CADORS stuff over there shortly.
  11. Cute. CADORS doesn't get updated over the weekend. It'll probably be on tonite's report...?
  12. I feel your pain Justin. Don't turn down an opportunity to gain experience for the sake of others. If you can afford to volunteer your time for someone else's gain, all the power to you. As we all know, this industry is all about self-preservation and profit. Pilots, engineers, operators, TC employees. Everyone's looking out for #1. It's pretty sad. Unfortunately, it's Darwin's law in action. That being said, the "opportunity" discussed in this topic presents many risks. Both physical (uncertified a/c flying for hours on end in the curve) and legal (as in risk of license suspension, fines
  13. You mean IT don't you ? Unless they lost the spare they had stashed away under the back seat.. ;-)
