The good news for you, Arnold, is that the Australian regulator is very happy to mandate as much periodic maintenance as you like.

Given the circumstances with which you have obvious concerns, I'd suggest you lobby for a prohibition on aircraft being used by pilots with fewer than - let's pluck - 100 hours' aeronautical experience, unless all of the flight instruments in the aircraft have been checked and calibrated by a licensed aircraft maintenance engineer in the previous - let's pluck - 6 months.

Stuff it: we're talking about safety here! Let's make it 200 hours in command minimum, and checks and calibrations every 3 months or 30 hours' TIS, whichever comes first.

The 'masses' in the USA can learn much about aviation safety from Australians.
