What about the word going about of the findings from last year's audit that casa management withdrew because Rex didnt like them, obviously the inspectors who raised those were found to be incompetent by their own organisation, or was that simply politics.

Heard that exit meeting was conducted in the Charmainís Lounge at Mascot.

Why should CASA expect industry to report matters and act on them? When itís easier just to hide them? Like CASA does. CASA FTE ground loops an aircraft and writes it off, not reported to the ATSB - last time I looked at the TSR that would be an IRM. nil AOD, Report and investigation? Too hard, just send him up flying immediately.

REX interviewed 5 "random" REX Engineers and they all felt comfortable reporting defects. I'm wondering why they didn't interview any of the Engineers who reported via the ALAEA that they are being disciplined (or sacked) for reporting defects.

CASA has a vested interest in this matter. If they find that there is a problem at REX, it means that their oversight has been ineffective. Having seen all the documents, in think ineffective is an understatement.

If Union members are being sacked for reporting defects - one would expect the ALAEA have released large resources in this matter, and in a timely manner.

The truth according to REX

REX Media Release dated 4 July 2019 Media Release Archive

"If the claims were true, then one would expect to find a decline in the defect reporting rate over time. The reality is the complete opposite and over the last two years the reporting rate per 1000 hours has actually increased by over 10 percent. Also, if the workplace environment is as bad as the disgruntled engineer portrayed, the turnover of engineers at his base would be correspondingly very high. In fact, we have an average of only one resignation a year over the last two years (out of 18 licensed engineers), at a time when licensed aircraft engineers are at critical shortage Australia-wide. This speaks volumes about the absurd claims of the disgruntled engineer."

If this is true how come there have been at least 4 resignations of engineers in the last 18 months and multiple movements from QA?

Me think Sharp speaks with forked tongue

The industry has changed, not so much the numbers and the shortfall is 457 preference than any conditions or pay increases.

Maintenance in general is in dire straits and LAME's have no place to turn - the standards are a shadow of 30 years ago.

But when the crashes happen we will be blamed or the pilots, but never the companies or regulators for the change that has happened. The ALAEA also has sat back for much of this change, they simply have no power and need to rectify that - LAME numbers are dropping that means so are the number of members possible to them.
