Clearly Australia needs more mandatory maintenance. More mandatory maintenance must mean more safety.
Yeah, Ok you win. Lets not have any mandatory instrument maintenance at all and save ourselves $$$$$.

As I have said, I personally believe that the 100.5 checks which does not include a compass swing to be one of the few sensible checks that CASA has introduced,
especially for aircraft being flown by multiple people who may be unfamiliar with that particular aircraft. I concede that privately owned and flown only
by one pilot, not so much necessarily,......maybe. I have however found some right dogs whilst doing these test on aircraft of the latter category.
However,as I said, you win.
