Re: What is the process for putting a helipad on my property?

In your case, you just fly in and out at your own risk. If you have neighbours that are close enough, you should consult with them. As far as making an approved helipad, you'll need lots of surveying, approved plans following ICAO standards and a couple wheelbarrows of cash and a year or two. Is the...

Re: Swoop CYQR Smoke diversion

If they knew it was a cigarette, but no one owned up to it, a cigarette diversion isn't appropriate IMO. If they just suspected a cigarette, but weren't certain, so they diverted, okay... as you say unknown smoke source... absolutely diversion appropriate... but why then did they just blast off aga...

Re: Swoop CYQR Smoke diversion

What kind of low life tries to smoke on a plane? Of course the loser won't even come forward to accept responsibility so the flight can continue. I hope they get fined huge.

As for the plane leaving, schedules must be kept with the aircraft.

Nothing but low life scammers who happen to be french.

They tried and failed before because they were on an international route. Hopefully we'll never have to share a plane with these two cochon/chiens.

You will need to keep a copy of the IATA tdgr's and keep your employees current.

It's not difficult, don't get caught up too much in making your own manual, everything is already laid out by the regulations and IATA.

Follow manufacturers instructions.

Re: AME course/license for ones own aircraft

No, you don't have the time nor the skill to become an AME. I don't doubt you know your aircraft but there is so much more. Maybe put your airplane into the OM category or stick to the non-certified aircraft. If you want to become an AME, the best way would be to take a 2 year college program and th...

Re: To anti-seize or not?

Yes, but use the correct antiseize and clean off the old stuff really well.

As far as the gasket, you can reuse them if they're in good condition. We used to anneal them for reuse. They are a crush gasket so they only have a limited number of uses.

Gotta wonder about the mentality of some AME's running around signing off annuals on bug smashers like this without any due diligence.. Huh??? Why wonder about the AME's?

Re: Quebec R44 missing.

The article is overly dramatic. There's truth in it, but those truths apply to many Bell helicopters also. I agree that a low cost, entry level helicopter, coupled with a simple airframe and systems makes it a more vulnerable combination. The Bell 206 is also vulnerable to mast bumping if mishandle...
