Is Having Fun at Work an Oxymoron?

Posted by Admin

My motto has always been, “Have fun at work!” To me, fun at work isn’t an oxymoron, a phrase that combines contradictory terms. I suppose fun at work could be considered a contradiction in terms, like the classic Military Intelligence, or perhaps business ethics, or how about Microsoft Works or my favorite crash landing? The thing is, if I’m not having fun at work there’s something that needs changing, and if it’s something within my control, I change it. [Read More...]

MRO East Coast - Rotortech Services

Posted by Admin

Looking at the front of the Rotortech Services facility, I have many thoughts. The first is, “WOW, what a nice facility.” The location is pretty amazing, but the structure itself is even more impressive. Looking past its pretty face, I also recognize that at the end of the day, a business is more that just a building. It’s really about the people and services it provides to the industry.

Helicopter In-Flight Refueling

Posted by Admin

In December of 1994, a nor’easter sank the 450 foot motor vessel Salvador Allende in the North Atlantic. Onboard the Ukrainian registered freighter were 31 crew members who were left stranded, battling for survival against 30 foot seas and 60 mile per hour winds. The crew members were hundreds of miles away from land and the magnitude of the storm that sank the Salvador Allende prevented other ships from reaching the scene. [Read More...]

Randy Mains - My 2 Cents Worth

Posted by Admin

Ma’a salama (“Farewell” in Arabic) signaled my final goodbye to the Middle East on January 31st 2013, ending 28 years of flying in the land of sand. I feel fortunate to have been able to finish up my flying career as a flight simulator instructor and flight examiner in the Bell 412EP, operating from the CAE complex in Dubai where I trained and examined Airline Transport Pilots from more than 20 countries. I felt it was time to go because a little micro switch in my head suddenly tripped signaling, “It’s time to give back. “ [Read More...]
