  1. I tried one on at Skye Avionics, and am pleased that it fits my glasses with the inner visor down. The things I hate about my gallet have been rectified with the Northwall design. Love the twist tightener on the back, quality leather (I twice replaced the leather surround on my gallet), beefy chin strap, click style visor controls (my gallet’s Inner visor always slides down by itself), love the dual internal visors. I ordered one, not exactly cheap, but I’m not sure what the other brands are selling for these days.
  2. Yes, Please elaborate. 17 years in this business and that's the first time I've come across the term "unporting of the fuel system". If you are referring to sucking air into the fuel system I was taught to fly in trim and avoid unusual attitudes when low fuel.
  3. The question wasn't what helmet I should buy. The Bose A20 doesn't come factory installed in a gallet. I've had a gallet for 13 years, I've been very happy with it, I would not fault anyone for choosing gallet. However, the Evo can be ordered with an A20 installed from the factory. I would however prefer to purchase from Canada and avoid going through the hassle of customs, if anyone knows of a distributor? I heard there's a guy in Calgary but I can't find any info.
  4. Anybody know where to get an Evo Helmet in Canada?
  5. First off, helicopter companies don't supply bagrunners, we have no controll over what gear (bags and pins) the seismic company uses. The seismic company will supply the bagrunner! The helicopter company supplies the carousel. Secondly, any pilot that has done seismic for any length of time curses the magnetic pos. It works fine when it works, however there are too many moving parts and rarely do they function properly. It is also difficult to swing back to front without first bringing bags back to staging and using the carousel to layout. The ruperts land would be my second choice, it i
  6. Transport Canada deems pilots fatigued after a certain number of flight hours, duty time and days worked, it does not mean that we CAN (not always) become fatigued earlier than the maximums laid out in CARS. We pilots have the right and responsibility to ourselves, our families, our passengers and their families, and our employer to inform our supervisors in the event we have become or are becoming fatigued. I can think of at least 2 occasions where I called my boss because I was tired. I can also think of numerous times where I've been pulled off high flying jobs because I was timing out w
  7. Sounds like the operators should start American entities,register all of the aircraft in the states, pay for their pilots US licenses and operate under NAFTA in Canada. I'm all for a petition. This is potentially devistating to operators, I'm not convinced pilots will be affected all that much (due to the already low supply and high demand) aside from even more time hanging around camp.
