The reason I said AF is its own enemy is the way they have handled each. Obviously when these events occur the public believes the org should have some responsibility. However AF maintained it was CASA who was responsible for pilot standards. Yes they are for setting the minimum acceptable standards, however not the standard required to perform aeromedical transfers on a PPL. So when they keep saying CASA is responsible inevitably CASA will beef up the rules around this sector. They then cant complain when the rules toughen up to provide some level of competence. What they should have done is implement some form of mentoring and training many years ago esp after the first accident.
