Well it appears that CASA has doubled up on this months Flight Safety crash comic and sent two copies out to every ARN holder.

CASA has the time to send out 2 mags, but it takes them months to send out my licence after a CIR renewal which i've payed for. Maybe they might send me 2 licences

Some of the articles on engineering aspects of GA are worth reading.

As for the rest, do they still fill it with "interesting" articles on cabin trolley accidents and galley dramas?

Some time ago, it went from a straight-forward "Crash Comic" to being full of touchy feely articles on cabin tray-table mishaps, trolley brake overheats, quizzes and too much other miscellaneous crap to cover adequately here...... did I miss anything?

"What is the Safety message to be inferred from this photograph?"

Followed by this week's best five inane attempts at Gary Larson humour by private pilots, none of which, none of which is actually humourous or related to safety. Best entry wins $50 worth of CASA "safety products".... wtf??? Does he mean a case of Flying Frangers? Now that'd be handy.

The Flight Safety mag used to be full of accounts, state by state, on all the latest accidents including injury/fatality count and a good description of what happened, if they knew. You could learn something about flying by reading them. The current mag is a sad shadow of its former self. In describing it, I'm tempted to use the word "gay" but it's so un-PC these days...

2 for me as well. Always a good read with Weetbix in the morning, assuming there's no newspaper or Target catalogues lying around.
