Thatís a bit bloody worrying!

For what does CASA charge all that money to consider an application for an AOC? Isnít a substantial part of the cost the time it takes to review the applicantís ops manual?

I would have thought that the unusual risks of operating into an island as remote as YSNF would have been obvious to even the most complacent of regulators and chief pilots.
