The vexing question is, was the corrosion that was found on the propeller (as referenced in the article) reported? If it was, then CASA must have known about it.

If not, then the reasons for it not being written up must be the focus here.

Intrigued who you got that from, those i know there personally, who i have spoken to tell me its far more than props and corrosion, and that lots of reports to casa nothing acted on.

Pretty disappointed to see Ben Morgan being interviewed on tv over this. I’m not sure what roll AOPA has in possible maintenance issues with a regional airline, but Ild assume its nothing. Whichever way it falls the last thing anyone needs is running commentary from uninvolved people.

Be thankful they didn't interview GT.

They named the person in the press release, first time round. Seems they have since (wisely) removed it.

Still, it seems REX management have made angry and vindictive press releases a core part of their brand.

Mate, the communities served by REX are involved as are pax and all other suppliers to REX. If you want to run a public campaign against REX then expect comments from all quarters. Many AOPA members are REX users.

Folks,
I note, from the REX press release, the statement that the leaks were coming from within CASA ---- despite the formal letter from CASA to REX.
Where have I (we) seen this before --- how to generate a CASA intervention?
I watch with interest.
Tootle pip!!
PS: Good on you, Ben.

Behind a pay wall. Is there any depth to the article?

V1 - not sure if you’re intention is to spruik for Rupert, but that’s where your post landed.

Given that many, including myself, would never knowingly give his biased, toxic empire a single cent, in future please consider paywalls

The company largely appears to be on the defence here.

Tiger did the same. The regulator was tipped off, the pommy management said you have all lost the plot, nothing to see here. Iíll never forget when they then threatened CASA with court action over the temporary cancellation of the AOC. They claimed exactly as REX has above, we are high standard law abiding citizens. There was so many problems inside I think I nearly fell over when I heard this....as CASA saw when they opened the books.

So do people think that there really is a problem in terms of safety with their fleet?

I know people who are in a panic and are not keen to fly REX anymore.
