As stated her supervisors have validated her beleifs

 

Ahhhhhh .... this explains everything. This is no longer about regulations. This is about beliefs ..... and this is why in different parts of Canada you can operate differently.

You're bang on jim. Lately it seems to more and more about beliefs; what's amazing is how far off their beliefs are from reality most of the time...

As far as operating differently in different parts of the country, somebody should point out that year in year out there is a long term OMNR medium helicopter parked in my backyard at rock bottom prices (always from out of province). I wonder how much this disparity from one region to the next has to do with their ability to operate at such low rates....

I suppose then that Air Canada have to provide overhead bins for the storage of the pilots map-cases too then! Can't be having that sort of stuff lose near pilots in the cockpit/cabin either....
Unbelievable (or not really)...

 

Cheers

TC inspectors are so out of tune with what goes on in the field its ridiculous...

In a recent PVI I was told that according to this strictest interpretation of CARS passenger headsets and a pilots maps fall into the same category as the purse. This is an inspector who has firm beliefs on properly secured loads in the cabin. They were giving me the distinct impression though that they thought this level of enforcement was a bit much. Apparently the Eurocopter supplied map pockets are not secure enough and even a passenger wearing the headset is against the rules never mind hanging from the hooks. It does come down to the whole "belief" thing and the indiviual who is ramping you. I desperately hope that the number of practical inspectors out there are in the majority.
