    SAR helicopter upgrade hits snag due to costs

    FWIW that graphic about fleet serviceability is garbage. All aircraft undergo maintenance - they are certainly not considered “out of service” or whatever label they had. SAR is mandated under the NSS to have one (1) LOT assigned to each region they support. By no means do the CH-149...

    FWSAR (CC130H, Buffalo, C27J, V22): Status & Possibilities

    It’s not currently certified for flight in known icing - it’s just a certification issue. It has boots, props, scoops, etc.

    CAF Aviators needing homes sent to Habitat for Humanity.

    There are a good number of housing options - all full with a waiting list.

    FWSAR (CC130H, Buffalo, C27J, V22): Status & Possibilities

    To be fair, it’s not the approach (3 engine or OEI) that we worry about - it‘s what might happen if we end up having to go-around. Three engine asymmetric go-arounds with any sort of rudder issue is not a good day.

    FWSAR (CC130H, Buffalo, C27J, V22): Status & Possibilities

    To be fair - RHUs are not costed at industry standard. 4 bedroom Q at Comox is close to $1k/month. That would be around $3k on the street. We (DND, CFHA) have built 4 new apartment buildings - each with 8 x 2 bedroom apartments. Only helps a niche group of troopies posted to QQ.

    Army Reserves to conduct beach assault and raid exercise around CFB Comox

    All of them… They‘re certainly not counting the ships company of 2xFFH and 2x ORCA class in that number.

    Air Operations Officer (AOO)

    Sqns will need to deal with the loss of PYs in their flying cadre. The OpsO Major line number will no longer be a flyer (as it is currently at all flying Sqns). Same goes for 2-3 Captain flying positions - those line numbers will get given to the AOO CM. I’m already seeing it at the Wing...

    Air Operations Officer (AOO)

    To be fair - duty ops is a valid secondary duty for aircrew. Air Ops O’s are takimg over line numbers at the WOC, CAOC, plans, etc. At the line Sqn, they will eventually be your Sqn Ops cell - replacing the aircrew without offset. Sqn’s will lose a flying Major position, and up to 2x Captains.

    Have you contacted the CT cell at DMCPG-5? They need to track your file and send you to CFRC for ROTP.

    Eerie timing no doubt. Funny how nobody in the MSM seeks actual SME input from these anonymous sources found on army.ca. That story could have been written a year ago.

    Is it possible to be accepted to the CAF with undiagnosed depression?

    Certain CAF members are not permitted to use “natural health products“ - St John‘s Wort is on the list of “no”. What trade are you considering?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    In all seriousness - if inappropriate jokes/comments are being investigated by a civilian police agency - will there even be a charge laid? Is it against the CCC?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    So will that be investigated by the civilian courts?

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    Damn right it will - Moderna announced today that 2 jabs wasn’t very effective against Omnicron. Hep B needs three jabs - if we need to keep boosting every year to eradicate this virus, sobeit.

    CH-148 Cyclone Progress

    Ambiguous reporting - “cracks in tail”. I’ll have to snoop around work and see if there is an actual DND report that stimulated this news report. Cracks in tail rotor seems more probable - similar to 149/146 growing pains. 149 ended up with a total re-design of the rotor blade assemblies.

    Comox base rocked by explosion

    It was a bit of luck that it happened while most live in personnel were at work. The injured folks were shift workers. Evolving story - more details will be released as we get them. We are supporting the members affected.
