One would hope the ALAEA first approached REX about the concerns.

Grounding REX is certainly not the answer.

Holding those responsible for creating the culture that has led to this, is.

Perhaps rather than make assumptions think about the Boeing issues, many spoke up, no one listened, including the FAA. Same here, would you be happier to see a SAAB in a smoking heap in the ground. Those who were meant to listen and care wouldnt, including CASA, what are LAMEs meant to do, let people die??

Behind a paywall.

A 17-page document filed by the Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority alleges a “culture of fear” within Regional Express (REX), claiming management is intimidating maintenance crews out of reporting defects.

Thatís the rub isnít it. At best CASA are at best ignorant and at worst incompetent.

There are a few other maintenance operations that need a good look at for exactly the same culture, but will CASA take any reports seriously?? I doubt it.

EBA time, or just now the Federal elections are over??
Aeroplanes that old, if you can't find some corrosion, all that proves is you haven't looked hard enough.
Tootle pip!!

PS: If something is serious, as opposed to just bitching, CASA prefer you don't put it in writing, written evidence is so inconvenient.

Does everyone forget that REX Group donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Nationals every year... and their Chairman is ex Nationals Deputy PM John Sharpe?

Has everyone forgotten that the only "fallout" within the REX Group management from the PelAir Westwind debacle (with similar whiff of managerial/cultural pressure) was that Wicko walked into a job at CASA?

The allegations made of management pressure are entirely consistent with everything we have seen before in the REX Group. Has anyone here ever been in a Management meeting with Lim Kim Hai?

Nothing will come of it. Sharpe will simply tell Carmody to bury it , just like he did with the PELAIR incident, when SC was deputy director of CASA. Where Sharpe agreed to give CASA a scapegoat in the form of a pilot, this time it will be an engineer

I wouldnít count on the scapegoat being one of the rank and file this time. Too many moving parts.

So worst case scenario what will happen..will the entire REX fleet of Saab's be grounded?

I have family who live in Carnarvon (CVQ) and I was looking at the facebook page called "Carnarvon Notice Board" and someone posted the article about REX (REX flies to CVQ) and now Carnarvon residents will be or are already in a panic with some (I read the comments) people wanting to cancel their airfares.

I donít think the issue is that someone didnít look hard enough. I think the serious problem is what happened afterwards?

The plot thickens?

Speaking to engineers yesterday. Although there's always a worry about management (which I believe is in every company), in this case it's an employee who lost their privileges due to negligence and is wanting revenge. In terms of prop corrosion the engineering department as a whole has much more restrictive parameters than that set by GE post prop loss incident.

Slippery_Pete 30th Jun 2019 23:37

Wow, now the accusations are being slung at CASA.

Whereís my popcorn?

gordonfvckingramsay 1st Jul 2019 00:14

Can you elaborate on that Pete? Are you suggesting that CASA have no knowledge of certain maintenance practices?

Slippery_Pete 1st Jul 2019 00:47

Huh?

Read the Rex press release Gordon. From what I can tell, they appear to be blaming CASA for the leak to the media.

gordonfvckingramsay 1st Jul 2019 01:19

Didnít read that Pete, I thought you were referring to my post (#7). I do blame CASA for the rapidly declining maintenance standards though, they are aware of it and they fail to act.
