Re: Has anyone used a WiFi borescope for a smartphone?

I just bought one off amazon. $24! Works pretty good, but the head (where the camera and lights are) is about 2" long and solid. So hard to go around tight corners. Neat little gadget though, definitely useful in some circumstances. But not a replacement for a real high dollar machine.

Re: Need Info about Thompson Manitoba

Thompson can be best described as what is left on the TP after you wipe your ass. There is no worse place on earth to live. The things you see up there you can't unsee. The natives love to jump infront of cars to try and sue if they don't die, because that's a better option then living there. No am...

Re: Calm Air

I used to work for them. Good company, good pay. Crew chiefs and DOM are great. When I was there there were quite a bit of apprentices compared to ame's, which I wasn't fond of but maint was always well performed. The shift was 7 on, 7 off, 2100-0900. You'd get one week of days every 3 months. What ...

How to find a job overseas...?

How does one go about finding a job overseas besides looking at the job ads here on avcanada? Is there a different website I should be looking at, or a contracting service I should be looking into? To put it bluntly I want to make as much money as possible regardless of location. I'm M1/M2 licenced ...

I've never done any overseas work, but am looking at possibilities, which brings me to the Tax situation here in Canada. How does one go about avoiding paying any income tax? Does it depend on where you work? On whether you're working for a Canadian company? Is it possible to become a "non-resident"...

Re: Air North

737 maintenance is done in a tent. Fits one only. Just like camping. Even in January. 748 maintenance is done in an old hangar not big enough to get all of one aircraft into. Ass hangs outside. Not much better than the tent. Well, that sucks. I was thinking about heading up that ways in a couple yr...

If they were "canned" recently it meant they were worth holding onto for as long as possible. For the licenced AME's it won't take them long to find work.
