  1. You can replace the machine. I’m relieved to hear the crew are ok.
  2. I think Cathy Press can do it at Chinook. Might be worth giving her a call.
  3. I've set myself up with a company for doing the odd side gig/relief work. Very simple in Alberta, did it all at a registry. All in with the accounting software (online) for about $500. Accountants do most of the heavy lifting but now I have a numbered company setup to do any side work (I do sideline IT consulting, etc.) For minimal overhead I'd say it's worth it, however, I don't use it as my primary income so your mileage may vary. All the best!
  4. Anyone willing to share a copy of the a B3e flight manual? Thanks!

  6. There was a write up on Vertical with Talon Helicopters getting NVG approved with their AS365. Perhaps them as a trial?
  7. Hi Harry, My FAA license is without any restrictions, therefore I don't believe it's any different than a regular FAA commercial license. I do not believe that you need to have dual licenses with you at all times unless your changing from a C registered ship to an N registered ship on the daily. You are correct that night training is standard for an FAA full commercial license. It is not part of the training in Canada unless you specifically ask for it. I personally went and did the 10 hours of training at Chinook and had my Day VFR limitation removed from my license. The literat
  8. The Standard Aero power check tool is also very useful for any Allison product. Also available on the app store.
  9. Tobese, Take all of these comments with a grain of salt. I entered this industry with some knowledge of "how it works" from the job I had previous to flying. I was around your age and had another career already so for me it was going to be a change and with that, to start at the bottom again. That said, I saved for a few years until I had most of my flight school monies saved up rather than going into massive debt. Once school started, I treated it as a job interview from day one and it paid off. My first gig out school was a no flying gig, but that was communicated. In which, I le
  10. Costco doesn't do molded ear plugs in Canada anymore. I got mine done in Calgary from Bow River Hearing. Was about $100 and had it back in a week. They use Oto plugs.
  11. That's for CRA staff members only. Not a guide to other agencies. More here: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/corporate/about-canada-revenue-agency-cra/travel-directive.html#a2
  12. For your FAA, you need to do the application for your class 1/2 medical via medxpress and have the confirmation number of completion with you at time of your visit.
  13. Don't forget your MedXpress number when you go visit.
  14. I can't speak for the Yukon and the Alaska side, but you do have some other fuel options for the Fort Simpson to Inuvik corridor: GSH and Canadian both have drummed Jet A in Wrigley, Tulita and Fort Good Hope. Speaking to their ops departments you may be able to buy fuel from them. Alternatively, instead of Wrigley to Norman Wells, you could go Wrigley to Deline in which they have commercial cardlock for Jet A available. As for your AvGas requirement, Norman Wells should be no problem as lots of piston based aircraft still use that airport, namely North Wright and if memory se
  15. I did my conversion this spring. Exam wasn't a big challenge if you're prepared. Dauntless and Sheppard Air have great study guides specifically made for the CCH exam. Once the exam is complete, do your interview with the FAA and I had my temp airman license right away and they mail you the card at a later date. Best of luck!
