armout the window, the eternal CAsA apologist, is completely missing the point.
Nice work W8, I ask who is the alternative organisation to fix the problem and you interpret that as apologising for CASA - in the words of Simon and Garfunkel, 'a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest' would be your theme song I believe.

what is needed is a sensible set of regulations.
Yep. You must also be a rocket scientist with that kind of blinding insight.

If the last three CEOs have not been the right people for the job then isn't now the time to take a closer look at those who made the (wrong) selections and turf them out first?

Duck Pilot and Lead Ballon are on the correct track...

The Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development (DIRD) are responsible for many of the issues facing CASA..

Difficult to regulate when the regulations, guidelines are other instruments of government are inadequate and/or outdated..

The next three weeks will be interesting to say the least..

One obvious place to start would be to ensure that SENIOR STAFF within DIRD are at least aware of the multiple deficiencies..and then hopefully, these same bureaucrats have the courage and conviction required to address the issues in a timely and effective way..

parabellum & Datum are certainly looking in the right area of responsibility, a good place to start is MrC47 aka the puppet master.

You can safely assume that, from the top down, DIRD has a very long-standing and detailed understanding of the existence and causes of the stinking turd that is the aviation regulatory reform program.
[A]nd then hopefully, these same bureaucrats have the courage and conviction required to address the issues in a timely and effective way..
I'm guessing you don't have much experience in the machinations of modern Australian governments. If you did, you would know what a ludicrously naive hope that is.

Much easier to get another Skidmore or McCormick or Byron or Toller to pretend to own the turd and take the flack for it.

Wow - that was a quick selection process.

Are you sure he's not just acting in the position until the national and international search and selection process for a replacement for Mr Skidmore is completed?

Acting CEO

Shane Carmody appointed acting CASA Director of Aviation Safety - Aviation Business

He may well score the job?

It doesn't matter who's regulations you adopt, by the time it gets through Office of Legal Drafting (all Commonwealth Legislation gets drafted here) it will not resemble the original.

You're not only those other incredible things but a time traveller too W8 - I responded to LB's post, you chipped in with your comment a few after mine, then you're using the BIG letters to indicate you already told me the score! Loving your work.

Neutral.

Australia has proved, through an experiment run four times so far, that changing the DAS does not help to clean up the dog's breakfast that is the regulatory reform program. Running the experiment a fifth time? What was Einstein's definition of insanity?

The primary cause of the problem is the structure and functional competence of the entire aviation portfolio. This problem is exacerbated by the general degradation and decay of the fabric of government.

CASA will never be functionally competent to carry out the regulatory reform program. A regulatory authority is not functionally competent to make the political decisions that determine the different standards in the system being regulated. That's why changing the DAS four times has made no substantial positive difference to regulatory reform program.

But no one else is going to put their hand up, or be made to put their hand up, to take over and complete the regulatory reform program. That's because the politically expedient solution is simply to let CASA muddle on and cop the flack.

Forever.

What Nipper has stated is exactly correct, and to compound the problem the lawyers setting the new regs in concrete know nothing about aviation.

Some things just don't change!

Back in 2003, CASA held the first (and only) FLOT conference in SYD.

One of the comments that came out out that two day conference in the summary was that:

"one of the greatest hazards to safe aviation in Australia was the AG's Dept"....


Still much the same it seems and only the Minister can fix that! But sadly the lawyers have too much say/power still.

Decide for yourself if you think Carmody is right for the job.

When allegations were made of serious criminality by CAsA persons to Bryon, passed to Mc Comic and gang the protective upshot was ..."that an external Investigator be brought in, to make it fairer for the staff etc" And at great expense to the taxpayer.
McComic having decided that the current ICC's finding that they should be dealt with by the AFP was inadequate !!

Mr Carmody was signatory to the Brief for the Investigator that asked to determine only if the CAsA persons had breached the 'code of conduct'
A get out of jail free card for the perps... since CAsA's code has NO provisions in it regarding criminality. How good is that.
He found the all did ...and should be dealt with by the AFP.!

So Carmody's credential is ...Turd Polisher ie BAD

When asked to give the reasons why the change was made to code from crim, under the Admin Decisions Act or whatever its called these days, his response was a Fcuk off in bureaucratic jargon, I dont have to tell you..

So much for the Code requiring ethical, moral and fair dealing standards, and not wasting taxpayers dollars.

What a sick joke the place is.

Pity JA never got the gig... he'd be able to spend another 20 years there picking the discrepant wording out of the regs.

I worked for Mr Carmody from 2006 to 2009. He understands the challenges of running CASA. Now he is at he top and unshackled, he will do a great job. He is the best man we have had there in many years.
