BrianG you've got it in one........
It makes it easier for CASA to succeed in a prosecution.

SL has nothing to do with encouraging or even forcing (ie legal coercion (sic)) a safe operation. I does infact have the opposite effect, ie drying up any form of open, free and willing reporting culture not only by individuals, but organisations as well. Who is going to fess up to a boo boo with the potential for retribution from an organisation that acts as regulation writer, policeman, prosecutor, judge, jury and finally the hangman.

Aviation Regulation in this country has nothing to do with safe flight operations, it's all to do with gaining a prosecution with punitive measures attached.

And to think, aviation does not even rate a mention in the Australian Constitution.
