Layoffs

Recommended Posts

The general public is doing that enough already and what do we all the other 11 months of the year?

 

Rough and dirty eyeball indicates in 2006 BC had 30 Heavies whopping around including: 61’s, 64’s, Ka-32’s, 214B’s, K-Max’s, Vertol’s, Chinook’s,

 

For 2009 I think that with all the changes BC will have around 12-16?

maybe my numbers are a bit off anyone else have a better estimate?

Yesterday Helifor laid off a bunch of people. First time in forever and unfortunatly I was one of them. It is a shame as the Boeing Vertol in my opinion is the very best aircraft in the world to work on and for hard work and high utilization nothing compares. 2400 hours per year max power min power every two or three minutes for 11 hours a day. I will miss the old 107 and the fine group of people that work there.

 

 

Old.. sorry to hear about this. Are they also parking machines?

I have heard that some operators are seriously looking at reducing fleet size.

One operator by as much as 50%. Apparently no minning work on the horizon.

I heard that CACA - oops I mean CAC - is coming to an end with logging in Canada. Only fires and construction from here on. Sounds like the way for most logging outfits now. Time for a new pay scale!!
