Dick Smith on Government Task Force for Avaition

Dick is a member of the task force for the governments "White Paper", other members are;

Taskforce chair, Dr Allan Hawke, and Taskforce members Mr Bruce Byron, Mr Jeff Boyd, Mr Rob Graham, Mr David Cox and Mr Dick Smith.

Who are Dr Allan Hawke, Rod Graham and David Cox? and what aviation background do they have?

This minister has no idea of aviation and going by current events he will have no backing from the4 industry.

God help us with this lot advising the government!!!!!!

Don't worry, Dick will spit the dummy when he doesn't get his way and resign as he always does. Then there will be 5 green bottles sitting on the wall.......

Unless this is a NEW taskforce, your info may be out of date.

Dick was already on an aviation taskforce set up months ago - he resigned last week and handed back his $10,000 cheque because the government wouldn't release the report - report now released.

Maybe Dick should take back the cheque and donate it to the RFDS?
