AMROBA v Skidmore on Part 61.

05 Jul

Today from the AuntyPru Forum: CASA Roast

Kharon:

A new years resolution- broken.

There are 134 pages of the AMROBA Part 61, which is an excellent start as it is well within the reading, comprehension and absorbance levels of most.  Moreover, it frames the ASRR opinion. – HERE

Quote:The following converts FAR Part 61 into high level CASR Part 61 and all the detail promulgated in Sec 9(1)(c ) Aviation Safety Standards as per the ASRR Report.

Only had time for a quick skip through; but, I have downloaded the text and will study it further.  It may not appeal to the pedantic, there are some rough patches and occasional ‘clumsy’ adaptations- however, in the main, it makes a whole lot more sense than the heavily patched up existing monster CASA keep trying to fix.

It is high time 61 was put out of it’s misery.  As it stand now it’s almost nugatory anyway.  Seriously, how can we have allowed a thing like that to exist, even more of a mystery is the collective minds that drafted it; what a tangled mess that must be: I digress.  Part 61 now has so many necessary exemptions as to render it farcical, it is no longer a law, but a crippled vehicle which the owners must keep repairing to salve their egos.

OST bleats on about it be a ‘complex’ situation and how we could not possibly understand the delicacy and deep legal tenets involved; there is also the huge, insurmountable problem of English ‘law’ v American ‘law’ to consider. Etc. Then there’s ‘constitutional’ matters to ponder.

BOLLOCKS – the ducking Act is ‘unconstitutional’: this is a known fact; the other known fact is no one could afford to test that in court and so it stands as a testament to the base intent of those who manipulated it, to suit.  Bit like the ‘airports’ imbroglio, where fast and loose interpretations allowed the current travesties to persist.

AMROBA’s Part 61 could be fine tuned, in short order by a couple of half smart legal types; hells bells I’d bet someone like Creampuff could knock it into shape between first and second coffee on a Sunday morning before doing the Times crossword.

It’s a risible notion that a ‘law’ can only be made to work by a constant stream of exemption to that law; how can that be ‘safely’ enforced.  I’d pay to watch a trial where someone not exempt was prosecuted while others, who are ‘exempt’ continued on their merry way.

Will I stop there? I think so, I’m never quite sure if I’ll break out in hysterical laughter or start tearing the limbs off fluffy toys whenever I touch on 61. So, kettle on, breathe and endit.

Toot toot.

The following is the history/& short insight into the ever evolving cancerous growth that is Part 61 which still threatens the sustainability of an industry that continues to be embuggered with regulatory red tape by a seemingly uncontrollable bureaucracy – Angry:

Kharon – “..Part 61 now has so many necessary exemptions as to render it farcical, it is no longer a law, but a crippled vehicle which the owners must keep repairing to salve their egos…” 

For reference – HERE – is the link for all the work done and in progress initiated by Oliver’s Part 61 Tiger Team. Within that there is an additional link – HERE – which takes you to a page of ‘legislative instruments’ that have been introduced since the original Part 61 first became law on 01 September 2014.

Now in reference to the “K” post here is the latest list of exemptions put in place to address the shortcomings and industry imposts identified so far within the Bible sized CASA Part 61… Dodgy :

Quote:Exemptions

Simply staggering when you consider that the above only includes the ‘exemptions’ so far and none of the additional pages of related amendments that also require more & more legislative instruments to be generated and tabled in parliament. The Attorney General’s department must have a separate section totally devoted to handling CASA generated legislative instruments – UDB! Dodgy

MTF…P2 😉
