For your viewing pleasure... some pics from my Quasar days 1981 - 84

Don't know who flapwing is but in the sixth picture is Bill Andreychuk presumably standing by the wreck that tried to kill him. He had a lot of hair back then. Bill if you are reading this Hello from your old neighbour.

Yes, Flapwing. Bruce and Dan and I all flew in the Army (not the Air Force) together, and he preceded me instructing at Rivers, MB. Great guy, stood up for me.   Bruce was quite prominent in the de

I'm pretty sure the very first Sperry IFR certified 212 was a Bow machine on fixed floats. Rick MacDonald and the Sperry guys worked long hours on that one :D

 

I remember that going on in Calgary - can't recall if it was on floats at that time but as it was destined to fly offshore for Dome Pet in the Beaufort I am sure it would have operated on them once up north

The 212 0n floats looks like C-GHVH aka "Heli-Voyageur's Helicopter". Purchased from Shirley Helicopters when it was N8555V. Which was acquired from Northrop Industries. Should have seen the ship then! A nose on it only Jimmy Durante could love. :lol:

 

I seem to recall that Associated Helicopters FAHZ or GIRZ was the first Sperry equipped 212 in Canada and it was done at Associated Air Center in Dallas. I think that Bow's FBHX was the first one that was modified in the field by Associated Air Center. Of course, I could be wrong as it was 30 or so years ago ;)

Yup... Quasar leased HVH from HeliVoyageur... I also flew HVH for Okie in 1986 in Egypt (Red Sea) on contract to PAS (Petroleum Air Services)

 

I wonder where it is now???
