I just finished having a conversation with one of my customers that was going to fly out of Happy Valley up north for a caribou hunt. Weather, bad luck and other problems caused them to cancel and come home.
One of the things I found odd was that his pilot said that there were new rules about taking a group clients to a remote strip in a larger plane then dropping them off individually with cubs at smaller strips. His pilot, a registered guide, said he couldn't do that any more. My customer witnessed the conversation between the wildlife troopers and the pilot, but didn't hear most of it. The only thing I can think of is that the guide isn't a Part 135 opperation?? Any thoughts, or are there new rules? I know lots of air taxis that opperate this way.
