For those living in the Halifax area, Bayer's Lake will be showing 'Rescue'- a feature showing the multinational efforts in Haiti after the earthquake. As some of you know, HMCS Athabaskan and Halifax (and AthaB's Air Det) played a significant role, as did many other CF personnel...
There are many touching tributes regarding sacrifice and service on Youtube. Here are a few that I found and shared. Please feel free to do the same.

Bandit Boy is missing. B Flight's pistol posing idol has been missing since early Spring. He is feared dead. Some say he left to find himself after a particularly experimental night at the mess with visiting British 419 students. Others say that he was CT'd and now is thinking about MARs-...
Anyone have any information on the new syllabus for BHS? As of today, I am scheduled to be on the Small Group Evaluation beginning in December. I was wondering how the it differed from the current syllabus and how the Outlaw will be incorporated.
Apache Flight has a "closed group" on Facebook.com for all current and former A- Flight students and IPs.
It is a place to upload photos, stories and stay in touch with old friends.
How to "join" the site:
1. Register at Facebook.com
2. Perform a "Group Search" for Apache Flight
Primary Flight Training (PFT) in Southport Manitoba has recently undergone a change in all aspects of the syllabus. From new aircraft, new ground school, and new delivery methods, PFT is a challenging and rewarding introduction to flying in the Canadian Forces.
Immediately, one notices the new...
There are few criticisms of the new primary training aircraft Grob G120A. Glass cockpit, retractable gear, and fast enough to elicit a smile in even the most sour of IP faces. ;)
One issue that it does have is its name. Canadian flight training has a long and celebrate tradition of excellence...
Just got my attached posting message this morning. I am going to Portage for the Small Group Evaluation Course beginning 20 June. There are just 12 of us (4 RMC'ers).
Finally after a lifetime of waiting to join the air force, and an equivalent amount of time waiting to get on course, I am about...
BASELINE stinks. I believe it is actually causing damage to my retina. I believe I receive a 1000 Baseline Control Centre Alerts a day. The constant flashing of its white sign is causing me to have epileptic fits.
I have tried everything to stop them, including:

I think I am the poster child for 30 somethings who want to become CF pilots. My inbox is full of questions like the one I received today. I thought I would post it and my response.

Before I formally pose the question, I would like to say I have only rudimentary knowledge of the subject- limited entirely to what I have picked up while living under the roof of an old Argus/Aurora Tacco, collected while at on OJT at a MH squadron, and simulated with video games ;) Alas, I...

I read this article online today:
I distinctly remember an account a Sergent told me during a field ex de-brief. He presented a situation that happened to him while in Croatia. A 8 or 9 year old boy appeared out of a shack, and pointed a RPG at his APC. He redundantly asked "What would you...
Just a couple more weeks until another bunch of 2lts are pumped out of that beautiful landmark in St. Jean. None of us baby pilots have heard any news regarding our next step. This is what we have heard- can any of you dispell them?

I found this article on CBC site this morning. It made me smile. A little light earted ribbing to our brothers on the wet coast.
