#casa loses 17, 371 pilots – The 2015 #casa annual report just does not add up!!

I have tracked #casa’s annual report for a several years [table collated below], particularly since when flying you notice less and less radio calls or [except for Virgin, QANTAS and Jetstar], less aircraft in the air.

In the published data, #casa show a major discrepancy in the numbers. Here we see, looking at 2011, a missing 5,065 pilots. These are across the years and there is no #casa explanation.

What is worse, the “pilot numbers” do not gel at all with the medical certificates.

Just looking at 2011, the medical certificates [not corrected, by best guess for doubled up ones] is 22001, so we have a full missing 17, 371 pilots!!!

Must just be a discrepant table???
