MAJOR HEAVY METAL OPERATORS

TO ANSWER THE QUESTION ON SILENCE OF QF AND DJ

QF is in negotiations re Aus-NZ thefore the ruling from on high is stay out of the NAS debate, though I believe they are very surprised and unhappy with lack of frequencies boundaries on Charts.

DJ in their expansion plans need Gov approvals and are also vulnerable to pressure.

NAS IG direct from CEO's mouth is an Implimentation group and does not have the staff or expertise to analysis the proposed changes.

CASA well Mick was eased out, therefore, the heat shield is down and middle management exposed to direct pressure from Ministerial Advisers who are without any aviation experience yet are calling the shots and instructing the preparation of regs etc before tight deadlines.

Already one more junoir CASA staff has been told to butt out

Even the AAA had one of its airport advisers removed as the airport he worked for had major matters before the fed gov.

Hopefully even NAS supporters will condemn this muzzling of major stakeholders and lack of time for discussion analysis and review.

THIS IS NOT PRETTY and is VERY WORRYING and CLOSE to BEING UNLAWFUL and NEGLIGENT

BIK if you had 5 near misses in an a/p in 5 weeks what would you do. We did not do a "chicken little" we analysied the incidents as did CASA and decided on 30nm MBZ and CA/GRS cost equivalent to $1.35 per pax.
