up front move..

Tarmac t*rds rule OK.!

Just had word that some hapless aviator at Roma got a $200 on the spot fine
for not having his medical paper with his licence. Medical was valid.
Also a threat of another bust because no visible ELT. Was in the seat pocket.

As you can see this is heavy duty "safety" stuff to keep the world safe from falling aeroplanes.
IMO its counterproductive- the pissed off and stressed out pilot is distracted from the task at hand when he departs.

Yet another example of the "safety" mujahadeen swinging out of the wrong tree.

Its madness, its wrong..
And it has to STOP.!!!

Start a new thread that names and shames the FOI for all to see.

Just the facts Friday, just the unembellished facts!

Taxpayer money hard at work

Hilarious. Taxpayer money hard at work! Meanwhile the 'fare paying public' (meant to be the main focus of CASA's core activities??) which are numbering into their thousands travelling on a daily basis are left to the devices of larger operators who are being publicly named and shamed on an almost weekly basis for acting in a non safe manner are not getting a gournsey due to CASA resources (no doubt some crusty old GA FOI has-been who is counting the days til retirement and a nice fat super payout) pounding the red soil of Roma!!
A continuing example of stupidity and lack of risk ranking by the regulator.
My god will Senator X hurry up and push forward to give this department it's long over due colon cleansing, please!

It was probably Noah or Moses, some dinosaur long in years.

Apart from the bleeding obvious

Hold up, have I missed a vital point or a change to Regs (easy done), but it seems to me, at face value that:-

Extract from a generic COM.
CASA Aircrew.
a) Operating aircrew will, as a SOP, carry Licence and Medical certificate and present these documents on request by authorised persons without delay, in any case no later than seven (7) days from the request. CAR 5.56 (1998).

N.B. Aircrew are advised that when logbook, licence or document presentation is requested, it is better not to leave the document (s) in CASA possession. Crew will request that the document (s) be made into a certified copy and retain the actual document in their possession. There are far too many instances of "lost" document events on public record. Consult the Chief Pilot prior to surrendering any logbook information.


Off the net, this AM.:-
5.56 Production of licence etc
(1) CASA may request the holder of a flight crew licence, a special pilot licence or a certificate of validation to produce to CASA any or all of the following:
(a) his or her licence or certificate;
(b) his or her personal log book;
(c) his or her medical certificate;
for inspection by CASA.
(2)If CASA requests the holder of a flight crew licence, a special pilot licence or a certificate of validation to produce a document under sub regulation (1), the holder must:
(a) produce the document without delay; or
(b) if the holder does not have immediate access to the document at the time the request is made produce the document at the place specified by CASA not more than 7 days after the day of the request.
Perhaps not the full story told,
Perhaps I'm out of date, anyone advise on LAW, not policy.

Unfortunately Kharon (as is the way in this country) CASA are now going to be pre-occupied with this: http://www.pprune.org/dg-p-reporting...fe-pilots.html

Or that could mean they leave the rest of us alone for a little while!

You reckon?? Isn't JQ part of the QF Group??? Correct. Nothing to see here folks, keep moving, must be some naughty pilot out there in GA with his shirt untucked or perhaps flying a 172 with a slightly worn nose wheel. Much more important.

Too true, gobbledock, too true! I suppose they have to get their end of year quota up to justify their midyear bonus!

It's a bit like the pollies getting a 30% payrise in a supposedly vain attempt to get better quality candidates! Pity the drongoes that are currently there still get the payrise!

Re: producing docs...

Remember that you dont have to hand over anything that may be detrimental to yourself.
ie.. yr log book ...because ten pages back you havent completely filled in all the lines.
You are NOT obliged to incriminate yourself.

As far as I am away, it has happened in court that a CASA demand under 5:56
has fallen over on that basis.

Its a bit like yr right to remain silent. But of course our esteemed regulator just sees that as a black mark against you.

Yet another reason for prosecution..."Failed to avail himself to an interview"

When you know their case has no merit/is false but "Some people in Canberra think they can make this stick"... why would you want to talk with the fcukers!
So they can rewrite it so their words become your words. As they do /did

So....be careful

Fit and proper person

CASA do not think I am a fit and proper person to hold a commercial pilots license. Ironically Motorcycling Queensland think that I am such a fit and proper person they have awarded me Queensland Official of the Year because of my safety conscious approach towards Motorcycling.

John, good point. I am an accredited member of CAMS. They have rigorous high standards and a 'bench mark' and 'entry level standard' that make Fort Fumble look like the two-bit outfit it is. Plus the risks in motorsport in general are higher than flying an R22 around a rice paddock.

'Fit and proper person' and section 28 of the act are CASA's 'get out of jail free cards'. They dont have to nail you with anything specific, they just put together a trail of weak shite and attach 'don't think you are a fit and proper person' to it and you are toast. Under the current system this is legal and an accepted practise.
Hypothetically, its like getting pulled over on the road, lets say in your case John on a high powered Ducati. The copper hates Ducati's, he is a Honda freak, so the entire charade is a farce simply designed to nail you for riding a bike the copper does not like. Although you weren't speeding Constable Plod simply hates Ducati's, so Constable Plod, and his offsider, let's say Senior Constable Koontz (always two on one, another CASA tactic) decide to book you for doing 113 km/h in an 80 km/h zone. They make sure you are in an area where there are of course no camera's or anything else that could work against their 'claim' that you were speeding, and the subsequent fine. Now, let that run its course and wind up before a court and see what the outcome is. The Beak will side with Constables Plod and Koontz almost every single time, it is the nature of the tainted beast.

We live in a part of the world governed by a corrupt and stacked Westminster system.

Post Xmas spirit.

Out of adversity... good things will come...Hopefully !!
Our forefathers' battled it out against one tyranny,and 70 years later we have to do the same with another.

On a different scale of course, but its a fight for our entitled freedoms and the rights of the individual...not CASA's definition of what we're going to cop Regs-wise, and their disgraceful treatments dished out.

Unelected Bureaurats SHOULD NOT and DO NOT rule, and we have to ensure that is the case.

2012. The Year of Change.

I'll drink to that..! Happy NewYear !

If anyone is unfortunate to fall on the wrong side of casa then there are a good number that can offer help and give awareness of tactics used.

Happy new year to all even casa. Prove us all wrong in 2012!

I have asked casa under the foi act for my entire case,I bet I do not get all of it.because then we will see the truth and extent that they went to.

Did you look at seeking a review of the AAT decision or an appeal? If it goes to the Federal Court you can subpoena the documents but of course you face further risks as to costs if it goes against you.

Perhaps you should also be briefing the Commonwealth Ombudsman at this point as well?

Good luck
