    CH-148 Cyclone Progress

    Not all S92s do what the Cyclone tail does...must make it even harder to categorize.

    "Unionizing" the CF (merged)

    I just did an Acting position and my regular one for a month. If I was paid the difference in pay between the Acting and my position, the pay difference would easily cover the $40. what's the benefit to me to mess dues? I get a parting gift on posting/release...that's it.

    CH-148 Cyclone Progress

    Yup - great this was caught. I hope the tech(s) who discovered this are properly recognized (I think it was techs).

    “In the tails” is pretty vague in terms of area. Normal? Hard to say. Operational; depends on what you categorize that as I guess. “Only two of Canada's 23 Sikorsky CH-148 Cyclone helicopters are currently fit to fly. The rest of the multibillion-dollar fleet is in need of repair”... Yup...

    "Unionizing" the CF (merged)

    I was recently Acting in a higher rank position. No extra pay or anything. I just got to continue doing my normal job AND the Acting one as well. It’s fun!!

    What is a WAG amount monthly dues would equal? Just even a ballpark guess. 30 bucks?

    "Unionizing" the CF (merged)

    For 2 years I filled 2 different positions at my Sqn; Crew Lead (part of Aircrew Flt) and AES Op Training O (part of Standards & Training Flt). Benefit to me? As you said, PER scoring. Sometimes I was at work for 0600 so I could “get some work done before work started” and leave at 1900. I...

    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    They’d probably pause and think of our submarines (old and under-weaponed), MPAs (old and under-weaponed), inability to really sustain our rather small navy at sea ourselves and say “really surprised they bought anything new!”. Then, they’d sit back and watch to see if the procurement went the...

    Most people aren’t privy to the status of fleets like the Aurora outside of what is released for public consumption. Current work has me visiting 6 Hgr YHZ on occasion and I’d prefer to NOT end up in the Sqn Boss’s office for bad reasons. 😁

    I’d love to comment on that publicly…but, I shouldn’t.

    What replacement project? Block 4 isn’t complete yet. 140s will be turning gas into noise for another 2 decades+. With disrespect to my own fleet, the US doesn’t really take our MPA capability very serious. If I was going to burn more YFR with MPAs I would not do it in the arctic.

    Replacing the Subs

    So now we need “adequate” air coverage. Would you settle for “sporadic”, and “sparingly armed”? 😁 If so…I can help with that…lol
