  1. He GF I thought you had a light speed in your helmet?? You switch to the Bose?
  2. Maybe call Qwest in fort nelson, ask if they can share, i believe the only operator in Canada.
  3. The top part of the form says training pilot requirements which is the 1000hrs mountain time you are referring to
  4. My understanding BC forestry want an approved mountain course and any HAC approved course will cover that. Under the HAC guidelines its only 5 hours (or to competency) with 8 hour ground school (see screenshot and link below) http://www.ihst.org/portals/54/repository/Practices-Mountain Flying.pdf
  5. Really?? Who?? here I sit on the slowest year I have had since I started flying
  6. A rumour at the table of knowledge is VIH are coming back into the medium game? Any truth in this? 12 being imported I was told gotta love the rumour mill 😎
  7. I have purchased a Garmin 296 with Topo Canada v4 on a 512mb data card. However I can't seem to get any Topo maps to work outside of Alberta - (north of Calgary up to Yellowknife is the area Topo maps work) Going into the map information tab I can select - 50k Topo Canada v4, 50k west, 50k SE. It looks like they are all on the card , Is there something I am missing? have tried to deselect Alberta and others to see if west will load up does the 512mb card not have the storage ability? any help much appreciated

  9. Have you looked into the light speed mod http://www.lightspeedaviation.com/content/lightspeedaviation/CustomPages/helmets.htm I have heard great reviews from guys doing this but in the LH250, better comfort, larger ear cup, bluetooth standard if your into that. I ran CEP for years, would need a replacement cable every season (seem to break at the join near ear piece) CEP are fantastic doors off Astar , 206, no batteries, simple, idiot proof and perfect comms... BUT.... to get used to really long days your ears do hurt. you do get used to it For cost you can't beat CEP over the Bose/Lightspeed for simplicity/ wire free the lightspeed sounds like a great system
  10. Any companies running a course this year? I have emailed Utilities Aviation Specialists awaiting a reply. Thanks all.
  11. What is everyone's thoughts on this season? Northern bc where I am is dead! anything happening around the country or is it just here?
