  1. Hi ROTOR, The Low Level Flight Operations course goes on to include the header. ”Where’s the Line? Safe Helicopter Operations in the Wire Environment” Did you do a wire course, did you learn a lot? Do you recommend it for a guy with 20 years and lots of experience? Thanks
  2. Has anyone here taken the Low Level Flight Operations course at HAC? How was it? I imagine it would really benefit a pilot that is short on experience. Would you recommend it to a medium time driver with a very diverse background? Cheers!
  3. Hello treetopflyer,

    do you still have the chapters of the 206 Training Manual that were once available for download in a post by WTF_was_that.

    The links are no longer active and I would love to get copies if possible.

    Best regards,


  4. I just started using one from MyGoFlight.com and I'm quite happy with it so far. http://www.mygoflight.com/dualmicro12-28volt Cheers, treetopflyer
  5. Sorry, I read it that you thought there were only 3 total. None of those companies are going to expect you to have a PPC upon hire; if you get the nod they're going to give you training and a ride. That's the norm. Your vfr background, attitude, perceived ability to upgrage to captain etc....all hold a lot more weight then a current PPC especially when you haven't been using it operationally. ttf
  6. I haven't flown commercially in Canada in many years but I imagine the list is a little longer than 3. Examples include... - Helijet (scheduled airline, charter and air ambulance) - London Air Services (charter) - STARS (air ambulance) - Canadian Helicopters (air ambulance 76 EMS in Halifax and VIP Quebec) - Helicopter Transport Services (North Warning contract) - ORNGE (air ambulance) - Cougar (offshore and SAR) - CHC Global Ops (still with some operational control in Vancouver)
  7. I would lean towards the trees while sitting on the couch but in the moment who knows where I would point the old girl. Unconscious or just stunned for a few minutes could be the end of you in even a few feet of water. I've had the dunker course many times. Every pilot should take the course! Passenger should also take the course if they spend a good amount of time strapped in a helicopter doing over water operations. I rehearse the drill in the aircraft several times a year to keep some level of muscle memory.
  8. I can't confirm but I'm hearing it was a Bailey helicopter. 3 pilots. All fatal. Very sad.
  9. Pay might be an issue. I saw the CP ad last year and the pay was NOT at all competitive.
  10. The 28-year old pilot from who died after a helicopter crash near Canmore, Alta., has been identified by RCMP as Matthew Goodine of British Columbia. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/story/2012/03/31/alberta-crash-saturday.html Sad news. Thoughts to family and friends.
  11. I didn't know Dave but he sounds like a great man and pilot. Condolences to family and friends.
  12. It might take Craig a while to reply as sledding season has started!
