Hover Lover Posted August 12, 2007 Report Share Posted August 12, 2007 :down: Today in Iqaluit there were two Griffions parked at the fuel pumps in from of flight services. They got their fuel and just loitered around the ac for about 20 minutes while a Jetranger sat close by with engine running waiting for them to fire up and leave. They then proceeded into the terminal and finally the pilot of the Jetranger gave up and went and parked in another area and shut down. It seemed to those watching that the military pilots owned the apron and felt that they could do whatever they wanted. The pilot of the Jetranger wasted a start up trying to refuel. Has anyone else been treated this way by military helio pilots or is this just two crews being inconsiderate and unprofessional? They knew the other pilot was waiting to refuel. Also, they have been flying their Griffions over town at approximately 2-300 feet. That's something that most of us wouldn't do especially since there is not need for it. These guys are up here for some kind of exercise. There is a frigate and coast guard ship in the harbour and I understand that there may be some jets arriving tomorrow. So, I was just wondering if anyone has had any experiences or run-ins with guys like these two crews or maybe its just these two crews who were so inconsiderate and unprofessional.
