in my view we are not in a position to be critical of the decision to issue the notice in October 2018 nor can we conclude that CASA did not provide sufficient assistance to try and resolve the issues subsequent to issuing the notice.
In that case, what assistance did CASA provide?

Can we setup a whistleblower hotline / e-mail for current CASA / ex-CASA staff, or for people to send in their stories. - go post flyers around their offices, send emails to all known casa emails with the link etc, allow it to be anonymous if required.

Would be very interesting to hear what current or ex CASA FOI officers sides of the story are - when they refuse legitimate FOI requests. - who told them to?.. (illegal by the way under the FOI act).

It's amazing how some conduct could appear to be blatant abuse of public office, but no-one wants to prosecute because it's deemed 'friendly fire' from one govt. Organisation to another... I thought the law was to be applied equally to all irrelevant of position or status... Also there must be an underlining presumption of guilt when CASA are attacking an individual 'for no good reason'.

It is govt. behaviour like this that got Donald Trump elected - and I agree we should drain the swamp.

Administrative law is a joke - there are no penalties applied... All you get is a bloody decision overturned... We need severe penalties for malice and decisions that deliberately detriment others. Maybe a campaign to alter administrative law to include penalties could fix many, many govt. Departments.

https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/C2019C00309

And here is an example of how administrative powers should be used - although it's a different govt. Branch, they are all similar.

https://www.transport.tas.gov.au/__data/assets/word_doc/0005/167207/Information_Sheet_-_Administrative_Decision_Making.docx

So the issue with administrative law, is although there is black and white law that states how things MUST be done... There is no penalty if they don't... There-in lies the issue, and why CASA thumb their noses at everyone.

No complaints to politicians, senate inquiries, senate estimate sessions, submissions to the industry complaints commissioner or reports to media or MPís has induced an arse hairs worth of change or accountability within CASA. CASA are an extension of government. Government protects government. Behind the scenes there has been some pushing and prodding, occasionally a boil gets lanced but nothing major since 1988. Even gangs and mafias last less time than CASA has!! Wash, rinse, dry, repeat.

Its been said before and I will say it again - the only way CASA will change is if a red tail with a white Roo on it ends up poking out of a great smoking hole. A totally palpable suggestion and something nobody wants to see, ever. But until something of that significance happens, forget it. The ĎRíegulator will continue as it has for many decades now. Isnít that right Pip?

Let's hope we don't see a smoking red tail out of the ground anytime soon - or ever - even in that scenario I doubt it would be catalyst for change.

What would be a catalyst for change is if every RPT / Freight pilot grounded themselves for a period of time (start with 1 day nationwide.... Then 2 days the following week.. and so on...) until we got sufficient reforms in place and an independent aviation ombudsman - imagine how fast that would happen if all those planes stayed on the ground... Very impractical, and would never happen - but I think it would have to be some extreme and unprecedented measure such as this that would get a satisfactory result - it's not like they can can bring in pilots on a VISA this time when so many are out of work at home - that would be political suicide.
I am not sure if Glen has tried this route - could be worth a shot?

Yea, because the govt. Sold pilots out by getting pilots on VISAS.. But as I said - with COVID ATM, that wouldn't be an option

Have to disagree with you on that one. If such a scenario ever occurred there would be a huge blame game and the ĎRíegulator would come under the spotlight. By default,, from such an event a whole bunch of Ďuglyí would be uncovered and spew forth. The event of a smoking hole would be the trigger that fires the bullets of change. Itís happened before globally. Aviation regulations are written in blood.

But someone has to write those regulations. In the event of a smoking hole with a flying kangaroo fin sticking out of it, the government's likely response is to demand that the regulator redouble its efforts to write more regulations.

Yes you make a good point there. Although heads would roll, there would be a whole new suite of toys for Dr Aleck to play with and feed his incessant narcissism and quench the thirst of his sociopathic needs. More rules, more regulations, more safety spin. And of course, no repealing of outdated, unworkable shit encrusted laws that have broken aviationís back. Lots of new layers to wrap around the stinking onion.

And a Lawyers feeding frenzy over the stinking hole in the ground that would make a mob of White Pointer Sharks getting stuck into a school of fish look like a Sunday School Picnic lunch!

FAA got a red hot poker up its auxil power unit.

The FAA got a fair kick up the arse from the US government over their 737max firetruckup. But of course that was only after two smoking holes in the ground and many hundreds dead. I am also afraid a smoking hole will be the minimum needed for change in CASA

The FAA postulated over B737 rudder PCU faults in the 90ís from which numerous aircraft were lost, resulting in hundreds of deaths. Boeing provides a lot of business to the US Government so the Governments regulator was naturally slow to act. Thatís just one example. And you are correct Seabreeze, nothing like a smoking hole to bring about needed change. It isnít an acceptable scenario, however it does seem to be the only way to dismantle and restructure a bureaucratic agency.

Would CASA have access to this capability

I had a number of text messages in my mobile phone with various CASA personnel. Those texts were in my opinion quite "telling".

Now when i go to my phone, the CASA personnel and all related texts have been removed from my phone. Interestingly, it appears to be only CASA personnel. Is this feasible or am i going mad?
Cheers. Glen

Yes it is completely possible. I have emailed hacked government documents to people for them only to be removed from both emails within minutes!

It may be possible they can be retrieved by someone with the forensic skills Glen.

itís a CASA phone i guess

Assuming that i find itís only the CASA messages and contacts missing.

I assume that CASA effectively has the right to have control over their communications on their CASA phones.

i could see the argument, provided i could access them under FOI?

I thought most phones only displayed text messages for 12 months. Carrier, Telstra/Optus can retrieve from greater than 12 months.

Are you enquiring on sms text messages or email Glen?
