jetbox Posted April 19, 2004 Report Share Posted April 19, 2004 You know what I found surprising about Vertical's last issue was that they pretty much singled out buddy whatshisface (Mr Allard I think) that owns Heli-Excel, Mustang and Venture as letting his iron go for a "cheaper than should be" rate (which apparently is more than true) and they made it sound like he was the reason why the industry's hourly rates are still in the basement. What was even more surprising was Allard's management actually admitting that fact and then trying to justify it using the old "all our equipment is paid for" routine. I don't remember there being so much disdain for an operator (besides Canadian of course hee hee) since Abitibi set foot in Calgary! I was surprised to see a magazine tackle that issue, and single out operators no less, as it opens the mother of all can of worms!!!!! If nothing else, between the two magazine, there's plenty of entertaining reading material (however crass it may be!):up: :up: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
