  1. Guys take a minute and think about what could potentially happen with an engine failure with a single engine helicopter on approach or departure and how many lives could potentially be lost to try and save one life? Google helicopter crash and hospital and you will see how many times things have gone south over the years around the world.

     

    The rules are written for a reason, if you operate in an area with a H1 helipad and you have a single engine helicopter I suggest doing some research before hand and look for a safe landing spot that is as close to the hospital as you can safely get. If need be arrange for the fire department or RCMP to secure a parking lot, field etc and have an ambulance meet you there. Proper planning ahead of time can make a major difference when the time comes to putting it into action. The only thing I find odd about the way the regs are written is the 15 foot obstacle clearance (ground effect) have heard this may have been put in place for some not so CAT A twins. Try and find an aircraft chart that will support 15 foot clearance.....

  2. Yes TC will take your night hours and remove the remarks for Day only. I did my FAA commercial where night flying is part of the the license and added an IFR rating on a Scweizer 269. When I came back to Canada with a copy of my logbook and TC paper work filled out (request for endorsement or rating) received a night rating and a HU30 for the Schweizer, no validation or flight required in Canada. Hours are hours regardless of what boarder you log them on only restriction I recall is they have to be within the last 12 months from time of application.
