Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta He loves to fly but. -Wednesday, March 14, 1773 THE UTHBRIDOf KBAID 41 Northern pilot hates to fill in bureaucratic forms EDMONTON (CP) JinU McAvoy is a 42-year-old bush pilot who flies by the seat of his pants. He finds, however, that the government would prefer it if he used the seat of his pants less, and his ballpoint pen more. Jim loves flying but hates Jill- ing in forms. So much so, he said that the government is getting ready to suspend his licence for the third time because he won't stand for all that paper work. A propeller which needs a checkup and over- haul on its pa- him to Ed- monton from his home in Yellowknife, N.W.T. Jim has been flying longer than almost anyone else in (he Northwest since his father practically or- dered him to get flying lic- ence in 1948. He's rescued more downed planes, made more rescue flights, found more mines and been lost more times than he can remember. He's seen his brother, Chuck McAvoy, disappear, never to be found, while flying two geolo- gists on a short trip. He's been forced down him- self many times and once clung to the pontoon of his aircraft for 24 hours as it floated in Great Slave Lake and saw his passen- ger lose his hold, slip into the water, and die. He's seen the N.W.T. air in- dustry grow from two small out- fits in Yellowknife to seven charter lines with 30 planes among them. He's watched the romance go out of the bush pilot's life as tiny hedge-hopping planes give way to two-engined affairs that cruise above the clouds. And, he added, he's watched as new regulations, piled one on top at the other, have turned the bush pilots into part-time clerks. "The rules creep up on you he said. "Now they swamp you with the damn things. The paperwork if out of this world. "Every little bit of gas and oil, every sparkplug you re- place, every bit of freight you carry, you have to fill out a form. "It's a waste of the taxpay- er's money. There's no common sense to it." SWAMPED BY FORMS So Jim decided to ignore the the transport minis- try decided he had belter give a good reason why he should stay in business. That's the way things stand now. Larger charter airlines, ho said, have accountants, law- yers, clerks and secretaries to handle their government forms. Jim's company, Latham Is- land Airways, consists of rhrea himself.
