CASA enforcement – Type of person used

Just doing some browsing and found this advertisement for past ‘Enforcement Officer’, which shows that there is no requirement for any aviation knowledge at all [apart from the CASA Act/ regs].

Perhaps this is why the interface with industry of these people is so rocky.

Past state police officers or Federal police have been used and the results anything but satisfactory – see the Quadrio papers.

Is there likely to be any improvement under “Skates”?? and what are the KPI’s??

To us in the aviation industry, they would appear [key-performane-indicators] about how many pilots/operators/owners can be ‘pinged’.

The Rudd affair is a classic – If you don’t get him witha lie, use more people to lie and support the original liar, even to the extent of getting the CASA spin-merchant to do it.
