Being a victim of 89, I have been overseas for 24 years. I went to Jandakot today for the first time in 20 years. I was shocked at what I saw. The place is almost dead. Seriously, I could have let of a atom bomb there, and not killed anyone.

This whole user pays thing, has killed GA.

It's very very sad.

If I was put in charge, I would change the whole system back to how it was..a regulatory system helping the industry.

And much to Dicks disgust, reopen flight service units all around the country.

And ban landing fees, circuit fees, all Casa fees, the whole bloody lot.
I fear GA in Australia is on the way out. And that is very, very sad.
