OK, The one I'm most familiar with is the one with HighLand. Ran into him in Inuvik couple yaers back.


I was always under the impression that the NS one was a P. Skinner, his brother.

Thanks, seems the same as always down that way.  The boys at "Stumps and Trees" doing anything besides drivin Cabinet ministers around??


Standard was (is??) Standard Paving. They had a 206 that was repainted, re-upholstered, etc, etc -- used to operate out of the IMP Heliport Hangar. The driver was a driver/engineer dude, that used to contract to Cougar. I believe he was strictly a VFR guy. Not too sure though... memory gets worsterer as I get older!


Next time ya run into OPkie, ask him to tell ya the story about his brother's great idea that flying a helicopter couldn't be that hard!!! Wonder the danged fool didn't kill himself!!


Ahhhh, rum... Proof that their is a reason to live!!

Heard something about  someone trying to set up another tourism thing like the  300 that was buzzing halifax harbour a couple of years ago? Maybe thats what the R44 is doing?  Anyone  hear anything similar?  Shortts Lake eh...  hmmm Frenchwrench...  care to PM me  some info about that?
