casa and the real number of pilots

I finally had time to look at the 2012 casa annual report. The pilot numbersw 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??
