Read the "Press Release" on the CASA website about Part 61,Part 141,Part 142 et al and by the time I had finished reading, I thought that I had not read such an arrogant, condescending "politispeak" document in a long time.

A raft of ill thought out changes, conceived without sufficient regard for industry and poorly prepared for implementation, and they want to blame the pilots....?

Maybe we could get another subject onto their agenda - PBR = Performance Based Regulation.

They'd be out of a job !

happy days,

imagine the mindset if you will, or the degree of myopic arrogance, needed to spend $200 million on a rewrite of the regulations and never once have an inkling of an idea that changing the regs negated all of the inter country agreements on cross recognition of operations.

I am stunned at the incompetence.

Industry (IOS) quotes from Phearless Phelan article

PP: Understanding the rules – Opinion

Preamble to industry quotes...

..."Those repeated assertions prompted irate responses from individuals and organisations. Some didn’t mind being identified while others explained that they held various CASA certificates and a wife and kids to feed. One actually drew our attention to a fast-track process buried in a CASA manual that helps you identify somebody as a fit and proper person {WTF??}. So we’ve de-identified the lot..."
  • “It’s interesting how [Director John McCormick] is happy to front all the media about the implementation, but he’s nowhere to be heard when it‘s postponed. Instead we all get a media release from Peter Gibson blaming industry for all the delays!”
  • “I feel insulted by the CASA machine. It says that the reasons why they are deferring the implementation of Part 61 in part are ‘to give the industry more time to prepare’. Can anyone advise when the first education programme started in earnest? My first awareness was during a two day ‘professional development programme’ (PDP) meeting for Approved Testing Officers in September 2013.”
  • “Only starting to understand the new rules?” They haven’t circulated them yet. Where’s the Part 61 MOS?”
  • “As for ‘Despite the long lead time’ etc–we’re alleged to be at fault. With whom did they consult? Organisations? Only? Well, I belong to organisations and I haven’t seen them. I also am an affected individual and I was not consulted. Nothing was drawn to my attention. I was not asked for my opinion. Were any other individuals asked for their opinion?”
  • “The fact that CASA hasn’t produced a Manual of Standards (MOS) that will be ready by 4 December 2013– obviously didn’t count – were we supposed to write that as well? Are we, the industry, are all so stupid? The whole thing smacks of ‘process versus outcome,’ which is what micromanagement is really all about!”
  • “Only starting to understand?That describes the apparent subject knowledge of CASA people when we ask them to explain the intent of a particular regulation. I was embarrassed for the CASA guys at the PDP meeting because they were obviously not informed, trained or equipped to explain the material they were promoting, or its outcomes; and they apparently weren’t allowed to answer questions. Also when that “consultation” took place (it was supposed to be a ‘personal development program’ meeting,) the actual draft rules hadn’t even been published yet so there couldn’t be any meaningful dialogue.”
  • “It would be easy to form the impression that CASA is among the organisations that are “only starting to understand,” especially when you review the mountains of amendments that have closely followed the recent launches of sets of regulations.”

    Good catch GRIFFO!

    Also from AMROBA this from their latest news letter, VOL 10 Issue 11:
    Back in Business — New Government
    Warren Truss has fulfilled one of the promises in the Government’s Aviation Policy Paper by announcing a Review Team to look at just about all aspects of aviation including government departments and agencies.

    Lowering costs and red tape is the key to the government’s aviation policy — this is easy to achieve in aviation. It was also the basis of regulatory
    reform for the last 20 plus years but has been such an abject failure up till now.

    This government has turned the spotlight onto the government departments and agencies involved with the aviation industry.

    One cannot imagine support for this Review coming from his own Department let alone CASA or the ATSB.

    Mike Mrdyck, Secretary of the Department of Infrastructure; Mike Dolan, ATSB; Allan Hawke, Chair of CASA Board; John McCormick, CEO of CASA and CASA’s Senior Executive would have been against such a review.

    The terms of reference for the review clearly demonstrates that this government does not have confidence in the current direction of aviation reform by those persons listed above.

    AMROBA membership supports the all encompassing review and hope they have enough time to properly analyse the aviation system properly.

    We appreciated the LNP policy stating that:
    Labor’s approach to aviation policy over the past six years has seen cost after cost added to the bottom lines of airlines and airports, pilots and passengers.

    Together, these measures have made the Australian industry increasingly uncompetitive internationally and have seen many smaller aviation providers struggle to survive.

    Government imposed red tape is beginning to overwhelm many smaller and medium-sized businesses which struggle to cope with changing,
    complicated and confusing requirements.”

    To achieve this massive change, they also recognised that they needed to:
    reform the structure of the Civil Aviation Safety
    Authority;

    revitalise the General Aviation Action Agenda;

    enhance aviation skills, training and development.

    AMROBA will lobby for:
    A more responsive CASA structure that holds a senior individual responsible for standards, regulatory services and oversight for discrete
    industry sectors must be an outcome.

    A 3 tier legislative system where ICAO standards & practices are promulgated by CASA as ‘aviation safety standards’ referred to in
    CASRs must also be an outcome.

    A FAR based system for the non-airline sectors must be another outcome.

    It would appear the IOS membership is swelling...

    Will the Angry Man and his bearded 'mini-me' be attending the AMROBA meeting? If so I hope he has the Comcar fuelled up this time

    It is becoming more and more blatantly obvious that all levels of the industry have had a gutful of CASA either postulating or blaming everything that fails on the IOS. The smart people are the ones not working for the bureaucracy.
    My understanding is that the Australian aviation industry employs approximately 100 000 souls directly. Is it time for a mass vote of no confidence in the bureaucratic silo's and their wrecking ball?

    Oh c'mon UITA, you know that helicopters are a pain in CAsA's ass. Silly little two man cubicles with a rotor! They are as annoying as GA, freighters, AG's and Warbirds. Ground the lot of them, ban them even. Every time there is an annoying crash it ruins Herr Skulls weekend!
    Unless it is a wide body jet the Screaming Skull doesn't give a gram of pony pooh! And as for manufacturing, engineering or even avionics or airframe maintainers oh no no no, we don't want them bellows Big Chief Angry, get rid of them all, now! Curse AMROBA, the Helisexuals, ASIC holders, aerodromes, Ma and Pa Kettle and the old man who lived in a shoe.....all IOS, the lot of them, what is the world coming to, poor poor CAsA, we don't have time for this sh#t. And you can take the Senators too, Channel 7, Chris Reason and those families pushing for justice such as the Hares and Urquharts! Please leave CAsA alone so they can do what they do best..................SFA.

    Just got the CASA "aviation Safety Yearbook"

    Chariman's remarks from Allan Hawke on the inside cover:

    "..... with flight crew licencing and the aircraft operations suite (of regulatory packages) on schedule to be delivered next year."

    Do they actually believe their own spin?
