I wouldn't quote Australian ATC, particularly Sydney, as an example of normal global standard.

I have to treat Australian ATC specially, they are the most anal on the planet (I am Australian and am based there), and not particularly efficient.

So JFK and SYD....two out of how many destinations? Seems like a pretty good average to me. Keep up the good work fellas, the free beer is in the mail.

"We want an open reporting culture, but we are hauled in if we file an ASR. These are the things that contribute to an unhealthy culture...."

No it isn't. It's spouting crap like THAT, that creates an unhealthy culture. I've been here over 11 years, have filed numerous ASR's in that time and not once have I been 'hauled' in. When crew are asked to attend a safety briefing, it's normally because they've either screwed up big time or an Arse Covering Report is hiding other more sinister events and FS start digging. Very, very few FS debriefs result in warnings. Some do. Is that a problem?

Putting comments like that not only demonstrates ignorance but perpetuates the negative and reticent reporting culture that's perceived amongst some here.

Agree with Bymonek on this. Some need to get a pair.

I agree with bymonek as well.

Have filled out reports when necessary, only called in once to get 'clarification' and no warning or anything because nothing was needed.
