Dick Smith and Air Services – Safety Case??

Dick Smith and Air Services – Safety Case??

Dick Smith talks to Alan Jones on Friday 5th June 2015 [http://www.2gb.com/article/alan-jones-dick-smith-0]

#casa safety issues that are not addressed are discussed.

No safety case here says CASA

Dick Smith says that the Departmental Head of Minister Truss, Mike Mrdk is misleading the community.

Dick Smith further says that in the US, the FAA has authorised local operators to inform incoming RPT aircraft of local weather and local aircraft, whereas this does not occur in Australia, reducing safety outcomes and increasing risk   to RPT operators.

The present law says that Ballina, for example, aircraft leave radar control [even though there is radar control available], with difficult people in the regulator who just will not listen and are providing an unsafe situation.

Dick Smith says that Warren Truss will not take control of aircraft safety in Australia.
