Do other #aviation Investigators direct the regulator? is a reasonable question.
This is particularly after the REX loss of propeller incident last week and the #Mildura incident – almost four years ago [when two 737 aircraft ended up at Mildura due to incorrect data being fed to the weather provider and the lack of information […]

John Sharp walks through the background [Pamela Phillips] during the interview.
Why was John Sharp at Parliament House??

The Supreme Court in Sydney today [6th February 2015], with Judge Monica Schmidt in Courtroom 9D, resulted in a “finding reserved” at 11.45PM on Friday.
The PelAir ditching, the first jet ditching in the world, where all survived in November 2009, seriously injured the Flight nurse, Karen Casey and the treating Doctor, David Helm. All […]
PelAir drags on – It’s over 5 years since November 2009
The PelAir matter is not yet complete, with the CASA, ATSB and PelAir with a major coverup continuing, much to the disappointment of the Senators. There are a whole range of issues to be answered, with a seriously disappointed and it would appear, angry […]
Is the aviation industry well served by it’s regulator and investigator?? in Australia.
The current review by David Forsyth [ASRR] certainly does not support this view and raises 37 recommendations as to how [and why] things should be fixed.
This is a long term direction for aviation.
The interference being run directly by the Department […]
Is ATSB the correct organisation to find and lead the search?
Certainly the SAR [Search and Rescue] is the responsibility of the ATSB thorough the enabling legislation. However, to look at the record of ATSB in recent times, gives another impression, with the ATSB refusing / or unwilling to lift the CVD in the relatively […]

As we know this Senate inquiry has morphed into the ASRR, which has not held back in it’s censure of both the CASA and ATSB, with some serious and deep seated changes required […]

Unfortunately there are too many since Whyalla, where ATSB has some serious answers to give:
Whyalla Lockhart River Benalla Canley Vale Norfolk Island
for a […]
Well Martin Dolan seems to be able to help “look for MH370” under his obligations under ICAO – Annex 13.
We know where the Westwing is at Norfolk Island, but he can’t get excited to find the “Black Box”.
Dolan went to the issue of “fuel usage” by the jet – strangely familiar. Annex 13 […]
