I trained at Canadian Helicopters just north of Toronto. My instructors were Andri Harasym and Sebastien Filion. They were great!

 

It's kind of a neat chain that has started where I work now...I teach ground school, my instructor is at the same flight school and so is his!

I trained with Dominion Pegasus in 1974.

 

Vic Schiebler. We called him Miss Vicky but not to his face.

 

Bernt Fernung was the CFI.

 

Anabell Hoit.

 

Dave Marko.

 

John Carnie.

 

Tow guys I cant put faces to named Gunson and Williams.

 

And the irrepresible Bob Ough.

 

I trained with Steve Hannah, John Smiley, Bogdan Duderavich was in the paint shop from the previous session waiting for a machine. John Belankie although he will deny it. And others whose names escape me. Mike Lipp.

 

Good times. Okanagan bought them out just as i finished my training. They refused to hire any students. Bad luck for me as it was three years before I got my very own G4A and headed for the bush.
