“As for the resistance to class E in Australia, I think it may be a combination of most pilots don’t actually understand it”

Its difficult to know where to go with this.
We know EXACTLY how it works.
I suppose its really difficult to convey to Public Service Nomenklatura what the real world experience of descending an RPT jet with 150 + pax on board through Class E with ZERO guarantee that you are separated from no-comm VFR or incompetent IFR traffic.
Maybe sitting in the jumpseat is the only solution.
Its rolling the dice.
There is a bad moon on the rise.
Its gunna happen OCTA Aus.
Better hope your not in the chair when it does.
