    Hello
    I am Antoine,I live in Quebec Canada, I am an aircraft maintenance engineer for Air Inuit, I work in remote northern canada in Kuujjuaq, on my time off down south, I work on my Defender 110 2001 TD5 that I imported from Europe. Trying to keep it running and make it llok nice, I really enjoy such a basic truck with almost no electronics.
    I have some issues that I need some advice because I never encountered such thing. I will try to help the community, I know all the extreme cold weather issues you can find, I ran that td5 at -44 no problem !

    bon Jour from rainy capital of England Manchester. Welcome to loonyzoo and feel free to ask for information via the series 90 110 defender section. Quick question as your from French Quebec and a Aircraft maintenance. There was a TV programme that was over here a few years back. ICE PILOTS. On the show was a fellow French female pilot. Sound daft do you know her?

    I know a couple guys working for Buffalo Airways, even sold them some parts ;) I work in the same conditions but no more old radials turbines are a lot more reliable and dependable, and easier to work on. I don't miss those radials :)
    No I don't know her, but I work with a legendary bush pilot called Johnny May, 75yo and still flying this guy has the most hours ever flown on Dehavilland floatplanes, and we have a couple female pilots up there even if the condition are extreme

    must admit is always fancied working for these airports in Canada after seeing a few of the programmes. Not that I can blow my own trumpet I have been in the royal air force 1981 to 1990. Worked at nimrods in Scotland as a supplier and with helicopters in the Falklands and Belize.
