  1. I received the information I was looking for, thank you
  2. Is Campbell Helicopters still in business?? I've tried calling the only number I can find for a couple days and I get a message that they are closed for the day ( at 10 am and 3 pm????). Just need to get a hold of their DOM.
  3. I am in charge of hiring maintenance personnel and I can confirm we are still accepting applications for all positions advertised on our website. Christian Dallaire Director of Maintenance OpsMobil
  4. Or work at least one year for a Canadian operator that has work in the US with Canadian registered A/C and you'll get your visa.
  5. We have had similar symptoms with some of our Raven II's but only in temperatures approaching -30C. It has been very difficult to troubleshoot as it only happens in very cold weather and unless we do the trouble shooting outside, we can't reproduce the symptoms. Not to mention -30 weather is not as common as it used to be. We think something either in the fuel control or the spider valve is causing the fuel mixture to be excessively rich, until the engine warms up and the symptoms disappear. Will keep you posted.
  6. I wouldn't mind getting in on that too!
  7. "This method means you do not have your own "company inspection check sheets" to have to approve." The check sheets, weather they are custom made or taken right out of the manual, are not part of the schedule and do not have to be approved, you just need to refer to them in your inspection schedule. When done correctly, custom made check sheets are far more simple to use than the manufacturer's as you can include everything in one document, AD's, STC's etc. Much easier on the guy preparing the inspection paperwork and also for the end user on the hangar floor.
  8. It doesn't have to, we don't use unapproved parts.
  9. Although it's common industry practice, if it's not in the IPC and doesn't come with an STC recognized by Transport Canada, you can't use it. Seat cushions are an aircraft part the same as a main rotor blade or any other.
  10. Aeronet is very user friendly and does everything all these other programs do and more but for much less $$$$. http://www.aeronet.co.nz/
  11. How are you getting snow past the filter if the doors are closed?
  12. Doesn't hurt to have a gun with you in the tundra either........
  13. Ha Ha! Wait until you get metal on your chip plug, what a nightmare! You're grounded for a week!
  14. I've installed both in the past, can't really say one is better than the other. Are you saying Eurocopter actually has them in stock?? Wow! Amazing!
