O villain, villain, smiling, damnèd villain!
My tables—meet it is I set it down
That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain.
At least I’m sure it may be so in Denmark. (Shakespeare).
A ramble, which I will begin by being ‘polite’. I shall at the same time set aside a big shout of Bollocks and not mention the carefully prepared, artfully managed script regarding the disbandment of the indecent, infamous CASA ‘Ethics Committee’ (EC). It’s probably PC not to give that committee the public thrashing it so […]
Sunday brunch comes on Monday (not my fault) this week; working backwards we must start with ‘Hitch’ he seems to believe (tongue in cheek) there is a ‘fire-fight’ raging between CASA and AOPA, which is a tad ‘dramatic’ – considering his following commentary in which he cites the AOPA involvement – back in the day. […]
The indefatigable P2 has had a busy week collecting news from the front; lots of it and all worthy of consideration. There is a little something for everyone from the grudging extension of time to allow those who must save their pennies for the ADSB fit-out, to two full blown inquiries. Spoiled for choice and […]
90% Steam GD. @ Post #414 the segment ‘Drones & Pel Air’ from 4:12 – Hoody gabbles and fluffs his way through a desperate attempt to shore up the notion that while he does have a significant conflict of interest in regard to the ATSB investigating the ATSB and his CASA position during the initial […]
Australia’s ATSB involvement with the MH 370 has topped the numbers this week and is now some 30,000 ‘views’ ahead of subject related threads. No surprise, sooner or later the chickens would come home to roost; the latest departmental sleight of hand in the form of a very slippery move by the minister, a play […]
Will we ever reach the giddy limit of spin, cover up, deceit, faery tales, obfuscation and dissolute, disinterested politicians mouthing platitudes? Serious question. Aviation is the world in microcosm; all there, every facet of life. It is a small world and easily studied, unlike some of the ‘big ticket’ items which haunt this small planet, […]
One ‘Loop’ closes as another opens. We realize that plodding through a whole sheet of individual posts can be time consuming and frustrating to those who have not the time or leisure to sort through the whole thing. The ‘Sunday Brunch Gazette’ will replace the general email distribution loop. The SBG will provide one link […]
In the Supreme Court of Appeal, between Nov 21 – 22 will stand Karen Casey. A staggering seven years have passed since the ditching of her aircraft, at sea. This singular event has been examined and dissected through:- • CASA Special Audit. • Chambers Report • ATSB First Investigative Report. • NTSB Canadian Report. • Senate […]
Oscar Wilde once said “Irony is wasted on the stupid”. But the ‘irony’ of the present situation is too delicious to let it slide away, unnoticed. To really ‘get it’ you must first read the ‘Winter newsletter’ from the RAAA – and the latest from AMROBA. Cannane and Davis in full flow, canny, logical, astute […]
It has, to say the least been an ‘interesting’ week. The final analysis of ‘Estimates’ and the intense focus on the lengthy, informative Air Services session revealed some excellent footwork from the Senators, the Hansard and the video outtakes well worth the effort. – Catch up; start HERE. The RAAA conference was concluded in fine […]

Background: Earlier today Dazzling Dazza announced the final nail in the “GA Sector” coffin: Major study of General Aviation sector Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester today announced a major study will be undertaken to identify priorities for General Aviation (GA) in the future…blahblahblah.&.bollocks Here is the ToR written for Chester courtesy of Murky Mandarin & […]
(Play nice GD). The minister’s ‘thing’ tomorrow will be a first yardstick against which to measure our ‘part time DAS’. See what manner of man lays beneath the highly polished surface. He does, most certainly have a ‘problem’, an internal one. No matter how many stage managed ‘revitalization’ pantomimes, or tambourine banging sing alongs the […]
To begin here is an extract from post #61 off the AP Mount NCN thread: Joining dots, making dashes on Aussie SSP??? – Ferryman: “..The Senate XI have not, as yet, used the powerful SSP as a means of winning the championship; not too much opposition so far to test it against – but despite it’s […]
