Part 61 documents, exemptions and exceptions and the Future of GA

With the help of auntypru.com, the following is presented to demonstrate the parlous state of aviation.

This situation of huge numbers of exemptions [should read – “…..Part 61 not up to standard….”]

This mirrors the range of nearly 3000 “exceptions”  that #casa raised following the 2008 ICAO/ FAA audit of Australia’s regulator, which showed the poor state of affairs. This was further supported by the Australian Senate findings in 2013 and 2014 regarding the hidden document in the #PelAir ditching at Norfolk Island.

#casa is a poor regulator and is destroying GA in particular.
