Re: Bell 206 - Sept 24,2019 - CYBL

Please advise, what could he possibly not know to avoid a crash or minimize the crash damage I have no knowledge of the details of this sad event, though the witness remark about seeing the rotor turning has me wondering about a low rotor RPM event, which could be pilot or mechanical in origin.

Re: EASA B1.1 to TC M2

You'll need to fill out the necessary tasks for M2 category in a booklet or logbook.

As long as it's a civil aircraft and is signed off by a license holder then the experience will count.

There is no easy conversion.

Re: Owner Maintenance Question

You won't be able to register outside of the OM category in this case, at least not economically. You can't just slap STC paperwork on top of homemade parts as then those parts would be classified as suspected unapproved parts, they were not made by the certificate holder or anyone else approved.

Re: Tools?

The school should have a basic list to start with, go with that for now and when you know what you want to work on, start buying more type specific tools. Some helicopters are completely metric with a few imperial kits thrown in, you need both.

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

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.

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.
