Possible Changes To Pilot Flight Duty Regs


Recommended Posts

I find it interested that the airline and helicopter industry is even remotely talked about in the same sentence...

Imagine a operator who has a machine on a drill in rural BC quebec or where ever...1 day off every 6? shorter work days? are you kidding me? what does this mean, need 2 pilots per machine everywhere just so you can do the 12 hour crew change on the drill? what a load of rubbish....

 

Same goes for bush fixed wing etc.. i mean it just cant work.. unless everyone start charging another 200$/hr and keep doubles staff... i guess that would make it even harder to get qualified pilots, so younger inexperienced guys will be put in situations they are not fit to be in... i wonder how good that would be for safety...

 

We should just all put our name on a list with HAC and cross our fingers...

Im all up for change and improved whatever but this doesnt seem to be the right call...

Should they go with whats proposed two crew enviroment would be the only way you could maintain a majority of the long term work fires, drills, seismic, survey etc....
