Okie, even if there was not an already reasonable legal way for CASA to do what they did, the government could simple pass a statutory law approving the past actions. This has been done before, and as long as the law is within the executive powers of the crown then there is no issue with using this course of action. This is what was done during the Tampa crisis.

Of course someone could try to challenging this action, but considering the power of licensing is well within the executive power of the crown, and that the public interest in the safety and abilities of a pilot well outweighs the small intrusion, the case would not see the light of day.

From what I have heard from a mate at Tiger, Claret is close to the money here. There may be a bit more to it; possibly best described as "deficiencies in the Sim matrix".

DIVOSH!

So based on second hand info and a report from a media outlet posted on an anonymous bulletin board you have worked out where the problem with Tiger's training program is - impressive

Three cheers for the QF crew who gave a "welcome back Tiger" on Sydney Tower frequency last night!

I for one thought The Screaming Skull looked very dapper in his red power tie when making the announcement that The Cub was back in the air ! A bit different to his usual look of Hawaiin shirt and Nutty Professor hairstyle he usually sports around the corridors of Fort Fumble.

Rumour has it there were many complaints in submissions to the Reserve Bank Payments Systems Board inquiry about price gouging of credit card fees by Tiger. The complaints ranged from fees of 15% to 28%.

BTW. What is the new Tiger spoilage fee ?.

Take it easy mate, just pointing out that Tiger may have to remunerate better (than they have in the past) to keep crew whilst QF are trying to bring crew T & C's down.

'Cause it's broken? Or a source of parts for the others?

One would think it would be a spurious warning, of course, you can't assume that at the time so a go around perfectly correct. I hope it turns out to be a spurious warning, for their sake......
