Proof that DAS Skidmore is a new broom

I had a meeting with the DAS back in April and amongst other things, I had a big cry about nasty Part 61 and how it is ruining my life.

In particular, it is hard to service mining contracts in small aircraft when (effective last September) the second crew member required by the client is not legally allowed to log any flight time.

DAS Skidmore thought this was a bit silly.

Today the exemption has come through HERE

Thank you CASA for listening, congratulations DAS Skidmore and Jeff Boyd for bringing some sense and experience to the table.
