  1. If my memory serves correctly you can only use fixed wing night flight hours if you possess a fixed wing licence, if you don't then the hours can't be used towards the required 5 dual and 5 solo.
  2. I'd be pretty interested in this information as well.
  3. I can't speak about the LH250, I have the 350 which I like quite a bit. It's great at blocking out noise and has been quite comfortable. However I do have the CEP tips, they're a minor hassle but a major benefit. If you don't mind the extra 15-30 seconds to put the tips in your ear, make sure you always have extra tips and an extra cable set then I doubt you'll be disappointed.
  4. I used a GoPro Hero 2 for a while during flight training and the rotors are quite visible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUJSwgZn0NU
  5. I'm pretty sure I remember seeing a MSA Gallet LH 350 with ANR, CEP, CME tips, a custom paint job and a spare visor for $3,600. But it had a big American flag on it, how could anyone resist that!
  6. Maxcraft! I thought there was someone out at Pitt but I just couldn't remember their name. At the moment I'm trying to decide if the LH350 is worth the extra hundred dollars or so compared to the LH250. I'm pretty sure I'll be adding both a CEP kit and CME tips but I'm still on the fence about ANR, I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on it but after hearing what a huge difference it makes in fixed wing flying I'm somewhat hard pressed not to go for it.
  7. Does anyone know of somewhere in Vancouver that sells helmets? I'm looking to pick one up but I'd like to try them on before buying.
  8. Sounds like it's a one horse town then. I just did a quick Google search to see if there was anything that popped up.
  9. There seems to be a heli-skiing operation there as well, I'm not sure if they do tours as well though. http://www.bellacoolaheliskiing.com/
  10. I was reading through a few old threads and happened upon this one. It seems to be about Red Eagle. http://verticalmag.com/forums/can/index.php?/topic/16309-us-flight-schools-in-canada/
  11. After reading that TSB report it sounds like Atleo and/or the pilot's family should be filing suit against the passenger's estate for causing the crash in the first place.
  12. Is that blog still around, I'd love to have a look at it.
  13. ICS was leaked for the NOTE a few days ago, I helped a friend of mine install it on his device and he loves it.
  14. That's a nice list of books, I've already read The Helicopter Pilot's Handbook and CARs in Plain English and they were both great reads! Do you know if Aviation World will be stocking the Bell 206 Book or is the website the best place to order from?
  15. Hopefully it'll be a good year to get into the industry as well!
