I was not really concerned about the infractions until I read that they had no compass, having an expired compass correction card is one thing, but having the card and no compass is just unacceptable..... I mean just how dangerous can you get? I can't even imagine trying to fly an R22 without a compass ........ :P


Obviously they had the compass correction card up to date or TC would have caught that sure as ****........ they just forgot to put the compass in the thing. :up:

It's not that hard to follow the rules (most of them anyways)! I'd like to hear their side of the story as to why they wouldn't comply with pretty important things like Airworthiness Directives but most importantly, why would T.C. blab this case to the media in the first place??!

What about every operator that has had issues with T.C. (legitimate or not), why don't we read about those in the media as well???

Yes, Jetbox it does seem strange especially the hundred grand fine.


If they own two Robbies I wonder why only one didn't have the AD complied with?


Strange stuff this because a lot of companies own aircraft for their own personal use and you never see this kind of report.


It would appear that they were using private registered machines and charging for transport of goods and people outside of their personal business.


The discrepancies listed are really not worthy of a hundred thousand fine so there must be something more signifigant that was going on.


I wonder where the pilot is and what he/she has to say about all this?

Hey amodao,


If it is Challenger Helicopters then I think they've been at it for more than a few trips without an AOC. If I remember correctly I met one of their pilots on the ramp in Fort Nelson two summers ago.


TC might be deadly slow but in this case it looks like they finally caught up to the operator.
