Evening Len

The Ottawa Valley Zone is having a pre AGM meeting tomorrow. I will be there as the Rideau R/C Flyers club rep. I have spent $23,500.00 for two turbine helicopters. For any one to suggest that we need the Americans (AMA) to tell us Canadians how to run our show will need to explain in much much detail to me. For any one to tell who is qualified to judge me after 32 years of helicopter flying sure as hell better get there act together. I fly glow, electric, gasoline and turbine helicopters. Dean W. has issued me a "Letter of Recognition" in case I want to fly turbines in the USA.

If MAAC goes over board on how they think Clubs should be run I will withdraw our club charter from MAAC. So the charter club fees when from $10.70 to $25.00. Our Club insurance after 911 is now $1,438.56.

Don, I agree with your sentiments but lets not completely jump the gun on this one yet. Its only a proposal at this point and your comments are what is needed to help others to establish whether this is really necessary.

From the feed back I've seen, it really goes against the grain of most, if not all, trubine pilots here in Canada. I am not quite yet a turbine pilot yet but I have purchased a turbine and have my first jet well underway and will be out there flying it as soon as the weather permits.

For the record, I to disagree with the need to go to any type of system like the US has done. I for one am not about to spend a minimum of $4000 to join this group of pilots only to fly recklessly and take unnecessary chances, endangering first of all, injury to others or myself and property or to destroy my investment. I do believe that others also feel the same way. I've now said my piece and hope others will voice their comments and whatever is decided will be done necessarily taking our voices into serious consideration.

Fair Enough Gary

I am not sure about what you mean by jumping the gun. As a gunnery officer in the navy, I know all about bang and boom.

I remember when we started flying gasoline aircraft on the second go around. There was a big hue and cry about how dangerous these models were. We/them needed fire extinguishers all over around to feel safe.

Moses had me as his deputy for the parting of the seas by the way. I got dinged as the Rum Officer and the NBCD officer more often then not in the navy. Then they realized as the Pay Officer/Pusser I was too valuable to be used as canon fodder.
