MH370 – Angus Houston takes charge ove r the search and the collection of materials. He is to lead the international search effort.
Where is ATSB’s Martin Dolan???.
Maybe someone is actually reading the PelAir stuff-up of ATSB and the complicity in this by Dolan and McCormick.
Is the PM [Tony Abbott] distancing himself from […]
The following was published recently on pprune. It bears some careful thought and support by both the aviation community and the relevant MP’s.
There is a six week gap where people can make contact your local politican about these critical matters and before the May release of the Forsyth ASRR [Aviation Safety Regulatory Review]
Well Martin Dolan seems to be able to help “look for MH370” under his obligations under ICAO – Annex 13.
We know where the Westwing is at Norfolk Island, but he can’t get excited to find the “Black Box”.
Dolan went to the issue of “fuel usage” by the jet – strangely familiar. Annex 13 […]
The following document surfaced in a routine search recently.
It may help someone in their research on the effects of wind turbines on airports or aircraft.

The weekends always bring interesting questions to be raised and investigated.
I listened to Senator Heffernan in November 2013, when he asked some very pointed questions about the RFS [Rural Fire Service of NSW] of McCormick of CASA.
The matter was again taken up from the May 2013 senate estimates, with only a single answer […]
The following is from pprune on MH370 and is most interesting as to how the southern route was chosen.
Well done Inmarsat:

The following are the resignations for the two CASA CEO’s.
The similarity of the two is somewhat interesting, albeit some six years apart. The mess that has resulted in PelAir, Part 61, 145 etc and the complete and almost total loss of confidence in CASA [and ATSB] by the aviation industry.
This can really be […]

Another great Sandillands report and comments [from pprune] below go to the heart of just why aviation safety in Australia is failing.

The use of improper legal process seems to be in play here in a post on pprune today [14th March 2014].
That a member of the aviation community should be prevented from raising very serious matters directly and in person with the board of a Government Corporation should be deplored.
The Directors are Dr. Allan […]
In May 2013, there was a meeting in Brisbane, which canvassed a number of issues with CASA.
The meeting was attended by McCormick, Alleck, Hampton and a number of other CASA staff.
The following YouTube video covers some of the material
Senator McDonald, who attended made the following comments in the Senate:
Senator IAN […]
The following pprune post bears some careful thought as to whether CASA and ATSB either together [basis for this exposed by Seantors Xenophon, Fawcett, Sterle and Heffernan] or individually to “drag out” the reply.
The November 18th 2013 estimates hearing certainly bears some thought, with the questions asked and the 28th May 2013 estimates, when […]

In a statement released late Friday afternoon, CASA board chairman Dr Allan Hawk said McCormick decided not to seek a further […]
The “Government Response” was made today [20th March 2014], although Albanese was given one [Interesting to see that, and compare with current]
