Can you all stop yelling from your online flying club lounge coffee table? All I see are a bunch of old farts scared of being told that you have to do your paperwork properly and you cant go about teaching redundant and unsafe processes and telling young aspiring pilots there is some Gov tyrany attempting to kill GA. There is no money grab, GA is financially insignificant to the government and its all opinions of boomers who cant keep up to date.

Glen, stop representing GA in your traditional manic fashion. Starfish, you have no sustenance to your accusations. Paragraph, stop throwing primitive insults. Ta.,

Hmmmmm, I should take advice from someone like you whose claim to fame is possessing an ‘ARN’? Ha! I think not.

We’re all ears, Jake: Why hasn’t the DPM appointed a new CEO of CASA, despite 5 years’ notice that it had to be done?

Yes.. I’m an old ‘boomer’ as you call us Jake. I grew up in a time where GA in Australia was huge. You got your documents for free. I passed my medical with my local doctor and took it to my local DOT office and got it stamped on my paper book licence. I did not need an ASIC card or a high viz vest to go onto the apron. It was fun.. fun .. fun .. fun.

i could go on.. but I’m glad I saw the best days..

More possibilities......Greg Hood?

Mick’s LinkedIn profile now shows him as ‘freelancer’, so I was correct about him resigning. However I’m not so sure anymore that it is he who will receive the CEO DAS crown however. He can be a naughty boy at times. Just keep the keys to the liquor cabinet away from him (and ban him from the photocopier room)

Interestingly, Mr Carmody also has his profile updated to ‘freelancer’ on LinkedIn. No doubt he will receive some aviation consultative work from the Government. Snouts in the trough - it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Perhaps he is also looking for work as an obsfucator, serial bullshitter and he can offer consultative advice about how to spend 30+ years sucking off the taxpayer teat? Mind you, with those giant ears of his (gives Daniel Andrews a run for his money) he could be used to test aerodynamics in a wind tunnel. His other strengths are being a good footstool.

Finally, what’s the deal with Mr Hood from the ATSB? His position has been advertised also. He too is a former CASA Deputy DAS. Has he resigned from the ATSB or is his contract up for renewal and the Government is following the rules of transparency and putting the role out there for any qualified candidate to apply? He does tick the Governments LGBTQ box. Perhaps party boy Greg has his sights set on Montreal and a stint with ICAO? Note to Greg: they are a bunch of dullards over there and they won’t tolerate any shenanigans. Strictly sports jackets and iced tea. No laughing permitted.

A long shot could always be the return of The Screaming Skull or Bruce Byron??

Quick question. I understand CASA is looking to recruit and appoint a new DAS/CEO...

I assume anyone contemplating accepting such an appointment would do due diligence.

What person would take the job with this steaming turd of the Glen Buckley/APTA case hanging overhead?

I would want it resolved before I took the job because otherwise it would fall to me to resolve it which is likely going to require a public apology by CASA, the payment to Mr. Buckley of a very large sum and a full blown strategic review and restructuring of CASA itself.

Easy answer; pride, bureaucratic ambition, a circa $1m remuneration package, a narcissistic and sociopathic personality, the egotistical high that some get from mingling with politicians and the legal power to bully and belittle. That type of shallow self gratification is what has driven previous DAS/CEO’s and will drive future ones.

Sunfish, each incoming DAS/CEO has inherited a steaming hot turd, it is nothing new. The next one will inherit the ‘Buckley turd’, but they won’t be too concerned about that. Do not be mistaken - a desire to perform a public service for the country, the passionate urge to ensure that there are ‘safe skies for all’ in our wonderful country and the ingrained urge to do all you can for others does not rate highly on the new DAS/CEO radar. In fact, it doesn’t even rate a mention.

As a high ranking Liberal politician who presides over 18 months worth of branch stacking, sports and funding rorts, travel allowance rorts and Parliament House sexual assaults once said; ‘these are unprecedented times”.
