Holy crap

 

For that rate I will put away our iron and sub lease his for $944,

add $600/hr to get to where our customers pay for a B2 and that $600 /hr will be all profit for me!!

 

tried every different way to get all the costs to run a B2 into $944, can't get it to work for me, has to be the calculator I am using I guess

 

ASRD is getting a B2 for $944/hr, wonder what they are not getting??????????????

If the helicopter is owned outright and you don't have to pay hull on the insurance? Why can't you make money at $944.00. This is a real question.

Fly with no insurance on a contract that you bid half the going rates at???? What kind of pilot will you be able to hire that you can depend on not to bend your uninsured machine? Engineer from Walmart???

Not for us thank you, good luck and thanks for helping keep the industry down in the dumpster.

I love the irony in this industry.......

 

If you look down on the main page, there is a discussion about the different operating costs of 407s and Astars. That topic all seems to be moot when you look at the various bids tendered in Alberta.

Obviously we can't agree on how much it costs to operate a B2.....but it's between $944- and $1990-!

 

......and if it really is cheaper than $944- (considering that Guardian must be allowing for some profit there also), then you guys that want to charge over $1100 must just be ripping-off the poor taxpayers of Alberta. Shame on you!!

 

I guess I need to sharpen my pencil a little more......
