Network Aviation Revolving Door

Heard NAA might be looking for a new CP. Scandal or history repeating itself??

There has been a bit of movement in the management team of late. I wonder if ex CP of Qlink has his eye on the job?

Exclamation Key persons turnover at Network !

Interesting post, since the last quarter of last year there has been significant key person turnover Network Aviation, COO defected to VARA (although still in a holding pattern with contract restraints), Head of Safety left, HOTC role having multiple persons in the role since 2020 and a recently appointed a new junior HOTC. If the Chief Pilot is leaving surely this should start to indicate to CASA there are issues internally, when you have seen strong growth with the business growing from 20 aircraft to 28 and staff number increasing from 550 to 750 and with multiple key persons walking out then then from a CASA perspective this would be sending their AOC risk profile score on the upwards!

Aaaand to an apparent chorus of "good riddance" - he's gone.

Gissing even took the opportunity to fly over to Perth and dismiss him.

CASA wouldn't have the intestinal fortitude to take a stand like that against Qantas or any major airline for that matter.

Since Kwantarse took over thatll be HOFO #5 coming up, similar amount of HOTACs and the CEOs are not far behind, all that in 11 years and CASA couldn't give a big white rat's ar5e

However here is the conundrum: If you were the FOI responsible would you want to become "famous" by taking a stand and upsetting QF? Or just business as usual collect your salary and 15.4% super?
You also have the issue that if you did take a stand it may get overruled from those above you anyway who may or may not be in the Chairman's Lounge or have other aspirations. So that is why nothing is going to happen on this front. Even if they bury an aeroplane the ATSB can't blame CASA.

CASA didn’t hesitate to ground Ansett. Why would Qantas be any different?

Delusional if any of you think CASA care or are getting involved in any capacity.

Their engineers supposedly planning to go on strike in a couple of weeks - the hits keep coming

Alot of unhappy pilots and cabin crew. Over worked, underpaid. Talks across the board of strikes. Many leaving for greener pastures as soon as they can. SHITSHOW.

Ansett was never grounded by CASA. There were some issues with the 767 maintenance records though. CASA did ground Tiger though for not having its back office functions sorted.
