  1. The “small button” is the vent, if you push and turn that too much it will come off. Push down hard on the cap below button and turn CCW, sometimes they need a tap when pushing down.
  2. I was going to say the same thing.. maybe that’s what transport didn’t like 🤷‍♂️
  3. Ummm not even close to what I was getting at, but Thank you for the window into your mind. Oh and Thank you for ruining a potentially useful thread with your nonsense.
  4. You’re gonna get them all riled up now 😊
  5. I got one on eBay quite a few years ago, from China, took a long time, but was cheap and it worked, can’t remember details but they’re out there, not sure where it went as I don’t have or use anymore.
  6. Sorry for hurting your feelings. So correct me if I’m wrong, the way I read your fancy transportation safety board graphs is 380 ish accidents in 1998 to 190 ish in 2017, that seems pretty significant actually almost 200 less reportable accidents per year over 20 years not to mention anyone who has been in aviation for 20+ years knows accidents/ incidents were not reported like they are now. Period. But anyway I could go on and actually sling some mud but I won’t, just not sure what your point is? Are you against the new fatigue regs? Do you think pilot/ engineers worki
  7. Yup there are too many rules and paperwork nowadays, you know why? Because your generation pushed it too far, you blame the young guys, but you pushed it too far, people died, got hurt, and/ or equipment got damaged, insurance rates went up, and if that didn’t put operators out of business the lawsuits did, at some point along the way common sense was lost and you pushed it too far, accept it.
  8. That’s my point, it is legislated, since it is not in CAR’s you would default to the Labour code. Administration staff, parts personnel, ground crew, duty time not in CAR’s but are “protected” by code. Same for mechanics.
  9. I agree with you Bif, just to clarify my original post was referring to Engineers, as CAR’s does not specifically address their duty day limits or days worked it seems to be common industry practice/ opinion that there is no limit for them. That is where the Labour code would take precedence if there’s no averaging agreement. Even with said agreement no one can legally work 3 months straight in Canada, That’s ninety 12 hour days straight. I could be wrong.... OH&S and Labour code knowledge is somewhat absent in certain areas of aviation compared to other industries.
  10. That is the unfortunate side of averaging agreements, once employee signs on, you lose a lot of rights under Labour code. So as an employee remember that when you’re presented with one of those, not much you can do if everyone is already on board, but at least educate yourselves on how they work and how you’re legally able to work those hours, if they’re being used correctly, etc...
  11. Yes, there are averaging agreements, not everyone uses them though, or knows about them. Unfortunately those are the one part of Labour code that seems to favor the employer.
