Hi all!

 

I flew with Alan Cram last month here in Thailand, with CHC.

 

Last I heard Andre was supposed to fly the 212 in Haiti for CHC.

 

And if it is the Dennis Wilson I know, he is currently flying in Myanmar.

 

 

Good luck with your search,

 

Cheers,

HYL

Greetings...

You may recall "Disco" Dean Bass, whom I last recall was involved in the aviation department at some gas/pipeline company in southern Ontario.

Another missing link would be Ted (Charlie Farquarson) Acheson who I believe is back on the family farm in Dundalk Ontario, but I spoke with him back in '94 when he did some contract flying for Ontario Hydro.

Randy Blake, spent many years with the ambulance in Sudbury and perhaps may be there still... I couldn't say for sure.

That should complete the missing members of the group of '77-'78, but the 17th candidate who did not make the grade and left early was Tim Barlet (the political science graduate), who went on to increase his fixed-wing flight experience and graduated several years later from the helicopter program, although I belive that he never found employment in the rotary industry.

 

It is closing in on 30 years, and amazing to run into guys all over the world from classes prior to and after. We all have come a long way.

So there you have it. I'd remembered Dean and Randy shortly after making the list, and could vividly see Ted's face, but not remember his name at all. As for the elusive 17th member I have been drawing a blank for on that for lot's more than a decade now (geez, and ta think I'm loosing my memory at only +- 30yo).

 

It's good to hear that all of the "fledglings" appear to be alive, well and still relatively active in the industry, and it sure seems that it would be an organizational nightmare to get everybody around a table for a few jugs of drafts. I'd bet that the stories that would be told, fabricated, modified, abridged and lamented would more than fill a volume or two of "daring do" and "hero stuff".

 

Well good on ya guys, here's to hoping that we all live to see the days when aviation gets dangerous (bla, bla, fish paste)....and sex gets safe again.

 

Fly safe, go well.
