Steve Creedy

Anyone else noted the absence of Steve Creedy written articles in the Australian over the past week? I am hoping my letters to the editor have had some effect and he is on permanent leave.

Maybe no-one sent out any Press Releases this week to put out as a "story"!

Would be good if Geoff Thomas went on "leave" for a while too. Talk about a mouthpiece for airline management.

to Steve Creedy,"Aviation Journalist"

Dear Steve,
I'm not sure if you have noticed, but on various Web sites, like
"Aviation Advertiser" and etc.,there are issues of a serious nature for Aviation in Oz

In reading Friday "Australian" over the years for the Aviation pages, I see a distinct lack of subjects dealing deeply with any of these issues.

Would it be possible for you or anyone else in "The Australian" to do some serious investigative research into, say CASA, which has internal problems
and a regulatory regime causing great harm to a vital Australian industry.

Even just a shallow dig into CASA will yield material to fill your pages for years to come.

best regards...

Vote 1 - Phelan

I prefer Paul Phelan's reports. He is not afraid to take on anybody and he isn't anybody's puppet.

Bit like the motoring journo that bagged out a certain car brand, but when he went on holidays to NQ he had no hesitation in asking the the local dealer for a lend of the exact same car for a few weeks!

Was looking for an email address for Steve Creedy when I came across this thread. I have never been as appalled by the Aviation pages as I was last Friday. I am in the midst of grappling with the Part 61 changes at work, trying to take advice from CASA FOIs who know less about the changes than I do, still awaiting the results of the Part 61 MOS DP, let alone the MOS itself, infomed today that the Examiner's Handbook will not be published in time for the December 4 roll out, and Steve publishes, almost verbatim, John McCormick's "smile and wave boys, she'll be right" article from the latest CASA newsletter. Steve... please speak to anyone else in CASA, or anyone in industry, to find out what is really going on with the catastrophe that is Part 61. And then write about it from an informed perspective.

Real news is the disclosure of secrets.

Everything else is publicity.

Almost all of the pap described as ‘news’ in the Western world is publicity.

Mr Creedy was very good at regurgitating the pap he was fed. He therefore did what his employer needed him to do: Rendered himself redundant.

I discovered Mr Creedy's lack of aviation credibility about 4 or 5 years ago when he reported on an accident which involved a RAAF helicopter pilot. A decent aviation journalist would know the RAAF no longer operates rotary. And a really good one will tell you the RAAF lost the last Iroquois in 1989. But that's what Mr Credible reported.
