Pilot numbers continue to fall – Is the new DAS going to act??

Pilot numbers continue to fall as measured by active medicals and the CASA machine is just ignoring this in its annual report.

Mr. Skidmore cannot ignore the trend.

What is more disturbing is to look at the 2007 – 2008 numbers, which total 47254, which makes the actual fall over this six year period, some 21,000 medicals.

The fall from 2006 to 2014 – with 21028 medicals, an 80.2% fall in active medicals.

The industry is in dire trouble.

The below shows an up to 350% increase in 2012 of “FAILS”, which continues into 2014. Is this the PMO – Navarthe showing he is boss?? as it certainly is not a reflection of rising medical issues.

Further, there is a fall in issued medicals, no matter how reported of 29.5% between 2010 to 2014, some 7731 medicals.

The control continues

The following comes from the 2014 annual report, which shows a major increase on a proportional basis of rejected medicals:The below shows an up to 350% increase in 2012 of “FAILS”, which continues into 2014. Is this the PMO – Navarthe showing he is boss?? as it certainly is not a reflection of rising medical issues.Further, there is a fall in issued medicals, no matter how reported of 29.5% between 2010 to 2014, some 7731 medicals.

Doubtless another thing to fix Mr. DAS [new] and with no spin Mr. Gobsome.

casa and the real number of pilots

I finally had time to look at the 2012 casa annual report. The pilot numbers bear some careful note – still falling, when you consider the active medicals.For your information, I include the last few years:Just a mere 52% drop in active medicals and a 39% variance in casa reported Flight authorisations vs. actual active medicals – More official spin??
