    Posted to Ottawa Thread

    There are all encompassing threads for postings to Winnipeg, Cold Lake, Petawawa, but I'm surprised there is nothing for Ottawa...so here we go (Mods, if my search skills have failed and there is an Ottawa thread please move this and feel free to kick me out). I've finally been sucked in by...

    "Australian Defence Spending Puts Canada to Shame"

    Dimsum, The reason they don't get an HHT is due to the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) being a gazillion times better than what we have with CHFA!! DHA is a system the CF should seriously consider, for locations that have a strong civilian housing market; it's essentially privately owned...

    "Australian Defence Spending Puts Canada to Shame"

    I've had the opportunity to spend the last few years working within Australian Army Aviation and I have to say, I think Fisher's column is very much a "grass is always greener" kind of thing. VIChris made the comment above, and I agree, that efficiency is more important. From my exposure I would...

    Petawawa Thread- Merged

    Well posting season is right around the corner so I figured it's time to revive the ever popular Pet thread. I'm off to Pet in 3 weeks for an HHT; as my only experience in Pet was a 2 week exercise on the Mattawa Plain I'm hoping for some input from the experts.  We have pretty much decided...

    Posting Policy-Out of Canada (OUTCAN) [MERGED]

    I haven't bothered with the Belleville address, most of my mail is sent direct to Australia. For things like Revenue Canada and my bank, my wife has family in Alberta so I use their address, this works out pretty well come tax time. I will caveat this by saying that if Revenue Canada decided to...

    Posting Policy-Out of Canada (OUTCAN) [MERGED]

    Dimsum, Sorry I should have mentioned in my PM that one of the things considered in the PLA is the exchange rate.  When I first got Down Under I asked about having my pay sent to my Aussie account. MFSS responded that there was no way of setting up a foreign payment in PeopleSoft (or HRMS or...

    CF IRP Directive vs CBI 209.80

    Hopefully this hasn't been discussed before, I would hate to be proven lazy in my search techniques  ;D I am in the midst of a move back to Canada from OUTCAN and have run into a few snags with BGRS and their interpretation of CFIRP.  In my mind at least, some of these issues are laid out quite...

    CH 147 Backenders (FE/LM) Debate

    It almost sounds like the discussion of crewing the back of the Chinook has to go back to first principles; what effect do we want the crew in the back to achieve?  Once that is decided then the crewing becomes pretty obvious. From my perspective in the front the effect boils down to four key...

    CH 147 Backenders (FE/LM) Debate

    I'm not normally one to post on-line (I think this is my first post here after reading for awhile) but for once I may have something useful to add.  I'm one of the guys posted Down Under with the Australian Army Chinook Sqn so I'll add another perspective. The Aussies have both Loadmasters and...
