Shame or Fame for McCormack.

Hitch your wagons and circle ‘em.

Hitch – “It's not enough to expect; you need to make sure the consequences of not conforming are enforced. And that, Minister McCormack, is the aviation industry's Statement of Expectations to you.”

Amen.  The neat nutshell Hitch published in Oz Flying sums up ‘the way things are’ explaining how the first and foremost safety’ concern is for that of the minister responsible; running a close second is the for safety of the CASA empire. The actual ‘safety’ of flight operations is, as it always was, the responsibility of the operator, which devolves into the responsibility and liability of the mutt driving the airframe. Almost any accident report you care to read graphically demonstrates this as fact. This is particularly true in recent times; maybe it’s time the minister learned a few home truths about what is real world ‘safety’. The problem with that is you have to have a minister who is ‘actively’ engaged in doing the job – properly. I don’t believe we have ever had a less effective, interested minister in a long, long line of glove puppets who are quite happy to pay (with tax payer money) for the outrageous protection racket not only CASA but ATSB and ASA provide on payment. So, the captive miniscule becomes the very first link in the safety chain, and the weakest. Isolated, cocooned and protected from the harsh realities; baffled, bamboozled and led about by the foreskin on a short leash by folks who despise and denigrate him behind his back, laughing, all the way to the bank.

One of the first questions any responsible minister should ask of CASA is “how will this rule improve real safety?” Not the fluff and arse covering stuff spoon fed at meal times, but down in the dirt, blood, shit, guts and heartbreak of an accident. I can say with some certainty that nothing CASA have produced, at great cost, has improved ‘safety’ one iota; I may even go so far as to say that many of the ‘regulations’ are actually detrimental. Why? Well, in terms an purblind politician may understand, the cost of implementing a thing like 135 must be met; unlike the CASA there is not an unlimited money pool, manpower and time to ponce about with endless, pointless paperwork; something has to be compromised. ‘Tuther side of the coin is the very, very real ‘lip-service only’ paid to ‘on paper compliance’ alongside of the utter contempt the latest load of regulatory bollocks generates.

If this particularly useless article, masquerading as minister, ever took his head out of his fundamental orifice long enough, he would see that both he and his ‘safety agencies’ are held in utter contempt by the majority of this industry.

Hitch – “Consequently, there is virtually no way of forcing CASA to take cost into account, because they will always deploy the golden shield of safety to get their own way. Take Part 135 for example. If the department was serious they'd tell CASA to set a match to it.”

The fraud perpetrated by CASA, with ministerial approval, using tax payer money is a national disgrace – problem is they are far too deeply trapped in their own mire to exit gracefully. Start again minister or duck off and let a more able man get it done. I hear the village idiot is seeking gainful employment; perhaps you could consider his resume. At least it’s honest.

Choc frog Hitch.

Toot – toot.
