I would dispute the so called 37,000 licenced pilots. A more accurate figure would be the number of medicals renewed each year., an awful lot of that 37,000 are inactive licenses, and I am informed anecdotally that the number decreases each year as does the number of aircraft that actively fly.
From a business perspective hours flown per year have steadily declined, one would have expected CAsA numbers to reflect that decline in the industry. It would seem that the law of diminishing returns applies to CAsA.

Which begs the question " What happens to CAsA when there is no industry left to surpress?
