Minister Truss and Aviation

Minister Truss and Aviation

On Saturday, Mr. Truss was at the Brisbane LNP Annual Conference, where these was a testimonial dinner given. Truss has overseen one of the most devastating falls in aviation small business across Australia.

This is not something to be proud of at all.

In fact, Truss supported McCormick for an ICAO […]

Update – #casa 10 commandments

There has been no reference since September 2015 to the “..10 – commandments…” released by #casa.

Industry gave a 2/10 score at the time and if we look at the current situation, there is no improvement.

In fact, if you want to talk to Mr. Skidmore, there is no return on phone calss to the […]

#casa and #avmed concerns of disclosure

The effects of non-disclosure are the potential missing of a safety related problem. The #atsb RepCon area has reported major reductions in voluntary disclosure by pilots and others in the #ozaviation area.

This has been at the same time as increasing pressures from the regulator #casa and increasing penal/ fine conditions promulgated by #casa in […]

Clear call for proper change to #casa rules and application – regulatory philosophy??

Clear call for proper change to #casa rules and application

Sunfish calls well for clear changes Mr. Skidmore, not soon, but now and before more damage to #ozaviation.

The recent “10-point statement of regulatory philosophy” as reproduced below, can only be called an absolute rubbish. It is compromised of a series of half-truths and mis-representations.

Who is Phillipa Stone? New #casa Board appointment

Who is Phillipa Stone? New #casa Board appointment

Question is:

How does she stand on the #asrr review? Is she aware of #casa’s breach of Model Litigant provisions?

and:

The clear problems within #casa that have been exposed in dealings such as:

Quadrio [Details here]; Rudd [FOI Requests]; Reppacholi; Barrier Aviation; Actions of #casa legal […]

Is #casa correct or does #ozaviation have real numbers??

Is #casa correct or does #ozaviation have real numbers??

The letter written to #casa by #aopa queried the real cost of the RIS [Regulatory Impact statement], which Marc de Stoop has real information, wheras #casa “…believes….”.

AOPA Australia has been silent on a range of issues in #ozaviation, but with Marc de Stoop, is starting […]

casa and the National Audit Office – Safety Compliance???

Question is, has #casa met this, particularly the relationship to the FAA/ ICAO audit in 2008 and now the 2013 ASRR audit.

That is the big question and the #casa corporate plan and it’s KPI’s, which do not have a metric to give them credibility and usefulness when measured against the #asrr recommendations.

Reminder from May 2012 of #casa misfeasance and the senate

Reminder from May 2012 of #casa misfeasance and the senate

This post [recovered from #pprune and the answer should be remembered the next time that Skidmore fronts the Senate and answers the wash-up from the #atsb inquiry and McCormick’s answer below.

Will Skidmore be honest??

Does the #casa Corporate plan meet the #asrr review?

Does the #casa Corporate plan meet the #asrr review?

The “Corporate Plan” that was released last week, by #casa, needs some careful and insightful review.

Viewed with the #casa demand of the industry for another $25m via the “fees poor-box”, in March 2015, the Corporate Plan can only be viewed as another #casa attempt to […]

Strict liability by #casa and it’s effects

The introduction of the strict liability offences has an extremely negative effect on #ozaviation and ostensible “..we believe….” guilt of the individual. It is expensive to fight and a legal minefield for the accused.

The #asrr report goes to some correction of these effects, but the current situation leaves all pilots, operators and owners at […]
