The safety of air navigation is no laughing matter, vne165. Leave the approval of the design, construction, erection and display of aviation-related signs to the experts.

Correct. Obviously there’s ongoing risk of aviation signage-based accidents during the period in which the MOS is being finalised, but that’s been dealt with by interim Directions from CASA. I’ll post copies of those shortly.

The Signage

i didn’t have an APTA sign up at Latrobe Valley. Casa did apply their opinion and sent me what would be acceptable to them. Needless to say i complied. Will dig out the email and post when i get a chance.

POST 1233- A precednt? AAT Finding aginst CASA

An attachment that may not be a particularly interesting read to many, but it is pertinent.

This is a previous AAT finding by a gentleman that had his business, position, and reputation allegedly destroyed. In this case, CASA unsuccessfully played the "safety card."

I claim the same against CASA, and importantly, they have no "safety card" to play.

Its only a question of "intent".

After the second finding attached above, my understanding is that he went on to successfully receive compensation for an undisclosed amount

POST 1236- Further letter to Chair of CASA Board. Discussion V Litigation

Today's correspondence follows up on PPRuNe posts 1151,1160, and 1205. Cheers. Glen


18/09/20

Dear Mr. Matthews,

I am writing to you directly in your role as the Chairperson of the Board of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.

As you are aware I have written to CASA on several occasions seeking direction on CASAs chosen path forward. That correspondence remains unanswered, hence I am compelled to write again.

Should this matter proceed to litigation it is imperative that I can demonstrate repeated and consistent attempts to resolve this matter in a more amicable, productive, well-intentioned, and respectful manner, to avoid litigation

The determination for the process forward is entirely of your choosing.

Can you, in your role as the Chairperson of CASA, direct me as to whether we are meeting in a well-intentioned manner or are you choosing to direct significant CASA resources to the path of litigation.

I look forward to your response and hope that CASA chooses the less combative option. As I have written to you previously, I can see no reason that you should not be able to advise me of your decision by 5 PM today (18/09/20)

Respectfully, Glen Buckley.

Glen, they’re obviously stonewalling you now. When are you going to make good on your threats to them of litigation and execute that?

I imagine that there is a valid reason behind Glen's actions - perhaps evidence that all attempts at reconciling this matter have been attempted before proceeding through the Ombudsman or courts..?

Glen clearly is no fool.

He has a bit of a legal war chest and we know he has used some of that (not very much) - Glen has not made any threats, just options available to him, both legal and procedural.

He also has several different fronts running in parallel at the same time.

There is no rush, this is a marathon. Glen has been to very dark places and back.

No need to rush!

99 bottles of beer on the wall

Well MacHayzer felt the heat in the CASA kitchen and he left, he is now the National Director at the Health Regulator. Perhaps others will leave also? Doesn’t matter really because as one leaves another one fills their spot.
