Cambox Posted September 29, 2016 Report Share Posted September 29, 2016 I'm just raising various interesting points to stimulate the conversation around this topic, although after 52 pages, I'm not sure we need anymore stimulation?Regardless, my own opinion is that a helicopter is flying the minutes the blades are up to speed, just bang that cyclic full deflection to the side sometime while sitting on the ground if you don't believe me!

Have you figured a way to get all provincial forestry agencies to allow you to bill that way? Many expect your flight report to match radio logs...which is air time only.Industry wide there is also a pile of "Flat rate work". Many of those flights involve dozens (even hundreds in some cases) of landings between starts. How about aerial spray? Passenger shuttling? Rides? As you said "SOIL SAMPLING".We always pay the pilot as you "mention above" after all he is working and responsible for the aircraft which is "in operation" according to TC AOHS and Canada labour code. Funny how the definitions of in operation and flight time are exactly the same don't you think? Yet the Givernment of Canada chooses to interpret them differently. Huh... 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
