AMROBA v Skidmore on Part 61.

05 Jul
Phil Hurst AAAA

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 […]

Band of brothers – GA & Farmers common interest?

  {Reference: From Aunty Pru Forum thread posts: 1/FACT – General Aviation is a major lifeline of the Bush. 2/FACT – General Aviation is a major lifeline of the Bush } The above quoted post highlights that both General Aviation & Rural communities/Farmers have a common interest to wake up Farmer Truss – the Nats & ultimately the Turnbull […]

In response to P2 – HERE  Once. When I was very young an Uncle took me on in his joinery shop, so I could earn some holiday money.  First job – after sweeping the floors was sharpening the ‘cutting’ tools.  At first it was only chisels, even then, it was only ‘beaters’ used for rough […]

Three years and counting.

A nicely done AP post by Ventus and P2 – HERE  -very much to the point. The next big question is ‘why’ have the Senators been unable to get anything changed; both the Fawcett (AWOL) and Xenophon rhetoric should have sent minions scurrying to mend the fences, put the minister on high alert and produced […]

Dear DPM Truss, Chairman Boyd & the Board

Time gentleman & ladies..time! We understand the dilemma when several ‘preferred candidates’ who met the Forsyth recommended criteria.. 7. The next Director of Aviation Safety has leadership and management experience and capabilities in cultural change of large organisations. Aviation or other safety industry experience is highly desirable. ..ended up pulling the pin or being systematically […]

The crack of doom.

Thank you Secretariat.   The folk in the back room do a great job, the video is always available and although Hansard takes a little longer, it is always worth the short wait.  First read through is always fast, just to get the flavour of the session.  First impressions from the video can be deceptive, […]

Patience exhausted; forbearance negated. Enough.

Perspective gents; perspective.  Seems the IOS declared open season on vermin, varmints and deviants.  Jolly good. We have I believe been patient long enough with the new boy; the dismal lack of progress in any direction is justification for war drums; although he does seem to have mastered  writing endless exemptions. Let’s start with the […]

A rotten way – to start your day.

You know, when P2 (Guru) kicked off this thread, I had expectations of filling up pages with good news, of the best kind; I did.  Which should be a lesson of some sort about expecting that things would improve. After the Senate and Pel-Air, followed by a Ministerial report by the esteemed Rev. Forsyth and […]

Batter Up – Oh dear; oh deary me.

Is DAS Skidmore just another benchwarmer?

Agree with the GD post.  Bad answer to a QoN, silly, arrogant, dismissive and probably dangerous. The Senators know the whole thing stinks to high heaven. Pel-Air is not the only ‘suspicious number’ in wee Wodger’s repertoire of artful, high handed embuggerance; nor is the only one where executive level decisions have been manipulated or […]

Probity for MH 370 – Waiting, waiting…..

22 Apr

PAIN lodged with the Senate committee a serious objection to ATSB and Sangston investigating the Pel-Air report – here–; in that document the ICAO rules are mentioned with regard to Directly Interested Parties (DIP).  It believe it’s time to stop pissing about and for those DIP, those with lots of skin in the game to […]

Closing the safety loop – Part II

Is DAS Skidmore just another benchwarmer?

“…and their predecessors — whose responsibilities and staff members meet in the emotionally charged field of air crashes — have had formalised arrangements for decades but Skidmore traces the latest one back to the tragic Lockhart River disaster 10 years ago. CASA copped heavy criticism from the families of the 15 victims after the airline’s […]

Wodger & the DJ terms of embuggerance.

Yes welcome Greedy and a most profound opening post: Quote:It could also be that she knows that “keeping mum” about the business will allow her to progress in the industry. It is a sad fact that anyone having the temerity to complain or assist others to complain invites retribution. As I understand it Dominic James […]

AMROBA a distant green light.

RE: Forsyth report – IOS monitoring of progress?? Ken and the fellahin. “CASA’s Mark Skidmore has rejuvenated industry representatives at the SCC meeting, 31st March. His opening speech at the SCC has provided industry with some confidence that this CASA will be a different CASA to the last 2 regimes.” This reflects two of the […]

The statistics of sanity.

There are inherent risks to staying in bed all day with lights off, the door locked. There inherent risks in getting up ambling into the loo and down the stairs to cook porridge, risks in eating bacon and eggs. The risk matrix escalates as you venture out the front door into the wide world. By […]

Perspective on perdition?

08 Mar

Is it just me losing my few marbles or has the world truly arrived at a state of comic book insanity? The TV news carries endless amounts of ‘heart rending’ pap, hours of commercials and every politician who can grab a minute of air time clawing each other to variously threaten, cajole and bully a […]
