Correct Category For This Helicopter?

Fri May 06, 2005 10:47 am

With the queue a little longer than usual, I want to make sure I get my upload right the first time. Is the correct category for this helicopter (and the several very similar ones) "business"?

Ministry of Health? I've never heard of it but is sounds like a government agency. I would upload it as that. If you click cross data search you'll see other people have uploaded it as a government aircraft as well.

That's a pretty sweet photo. That'd definitely go under government. After all, the government would pay for it as part of medicare or medicaid or whatever the institution is.

Alright, I don't think I was clear enough in my original post.

The photo I linked to wasn't taken by myself nor does it picture the exact helicopter that I photographed.

As far as I know, the helicopters are now contracted out to a private company, Canadian Helicopters, and operated for the Ministry of Health. I think this is a relatively recent change, so the photo I posted is probably not even applicable any more Silly.

I'm not sure if it should go under goverment or business, since it is operated by a business but owned by the government (I think, though I'm not certain that this is indeed the arrangement).

Sorry for any confusion and I help someone can clarify this.

Thanks, Alex, by the way, I was not aware of that feature.

According to a thread here by the editor(s) a few months ago, the Business category is an exclusively "Biz Jet" category..presumably not even to include corporate examples of airliners such as certain 727s.

Helicopters were specifically cited as improper for The business aircraft category. So if you have an example of a General Electric for example owned Sikorsky S-76, it should go under "Private" now.

Unfortunately, last I noticed the language on the upload page implies something entirely different.

I'm very certain the category for this is still just HELICOPTER.

Well, just checked now, and in the category of ownership, it appears the help text has been updated to business "jet", consistent with the editors thread here previously, so that is helpful  Smile
