Hope Truss cracks on and makes the reform work;
Ha Ha that is probably one of the funniest things I have ever seen on PPRuNe.

wiping tears from eyes with laughter.

On the evidence it would appear that [the applicant] is a technically competent pilot.”

The Tribunal found there, as does the Tribunal in this matter, that what is most important is the applicant’s attitude to compliance with the civil aviation regulatory religion.
all bow down to the lords of safety, ommmmmm ommmmm ommmmm.

AE – Glad you caught that; Hope and Truss in the one sentence, not certain whether it makes one cry from laughing, or laugh from crying. Truss fluffed it in 2008 and with the speed of a well trained racing tortoise is slipping away from his responsibilities in 2014. Given time and assistance the entire 37 WLR recommendations could end up diluted, deferred and dismissed with his tacit blessing; the sappers will be at work as we speak. The reliance on the new board and DAS to take on the 'status quo' could easily be subverted. Can the AAT fiasco be fixed? If Truss only ever did one useful thing before going completely ga ga, it should be removing double jeopardy from the equation; that would be enough. Quadrio is classic – CDPP said no case to answer; no problem says the boys from Sleepy Hollow; we'll do him in the AAT, and they did. It's a ridiculous situation.

LS - I can think that I can say, with great confidence, that in order of importance, aviation is not on his top 10 "to do" list, indeed, about the only aviation matter of interest to the Government is: "Would it have any effect on re-election of the Government if Qantas went broke or real control was sold off".
Crumbs, if 'industry' is low priority, where does that leave attending to the 'daily' details, like administrative embuggerance; aided and abetted through the AAT system.

Toot toot...

Thumbs up

It means that they are making life easier for operators (although not easier to understand for the barely literate).

Currently your SMS manual and your Human Factors/Non-technical skills course is approved by CASA and once approved it is set in stone.

The whole point of SMS ad Human Factors courses is that they are supposed to evolve with the business and with experience - the normal CASA process means that you need to submit changes to your FOI or a subject Matter Expert for them to approve.

This is invariably followed by a to-and-fro over the spelling of "colour" vs "color" and "hamonise" vs "harmonize" and takes 12 months at the end of which CASA slaps you with a NCN because you haven't made timely amendments to your manual suite as required by CAR 215.

By removing the requirement for CASA proof-reading and sub-editing they allow the operator to get on with business.

CAOs like CARs are Commonwealth Law and as such are written by lawyers.

Or maybe CAsA have realised that they don't actually have SMEs capable of actually understanding the material and approving it. Sort of putting responsibility back onto the operators.......

Yes, makes it easier for operators which is good. They are the ones actually out there doing these things as opposed to sitting in Canberra picking fault with documents.

The less interference from Government employed bureaucrats, the better. This is one decision that I think is actually a good thing for the rest of us. Might also give 'em time to find another way of screwing us? Guess we'll see.
