But who Frank? Shall it be the Manager Worm farms? Or the General Manager Pot Plants? There is always the Comcar detailers who give the fleet cars a bit of a vacuum and polish so they would be a shoe in. Then again, the guard who stands daily with an AK47 outside the TRIM vault protecting all those files and 'hit lists' (which of course don't exist) would be high up the list!
We are spoilt with too many choices. Drumroll please......

I'm thinking, someone from the past, with runs on the industry score board, brought back from out in the cold, would tick off one of their most favored "conditions". Just a gut feeling.

Frank, I could be 180 deg off the beam, but if who sprang to mind after reading your last missive ever gets the gig, then I'll find a very tall building with an open window on the top floor.

IMHO, one of the most divisive and self-opinionated individuals to ever hold sway in the industry. Surely, the "powers" wouldn't be that stupid. But, then again, they are proven slow-learners....

And sorry for calling you Surely!

Any news re CASA Board and CEO?

Just curious, (I may have missed it), but was wondering if there was any news or scuttle butt on who the new CEO and board members were going to be at CASA? Any names in the frame yet?

Nothing heard and I expect to be totally underwhelmed by the Governments response to the enquiry.

CASA Board appointments

Aviation Business Doug Nancarrow has revealed the names of the last three CASA board members. They are Gliding Federation president Anita Taylor, AMDA board chairman and RAAA board member Ian Smith, and former Qantas engineering and regional airline general manager David Cox, now head of Sydney Uni engineering. Combined with Jeff Boyd, the new-look board boasts a wealth of aviation and managerial experience that should preside over a much improved CASA. Put it this way: if they can't do it then it can't be done, and general aviation in Australia will be a plaque on a plinth in 20 years.

and current:
Trevor Danos [until June 2015]
Alan Hawkes [until June 2015]
The list looked half plausible til we got to these two.

I think you'll find it's "Hawke".

(And why didn't AOPA manage to learn how to spell McCormick's name??)

TF was always going to get the DAS job in an Ag capacity.

Creampuff, I don't think anyone really cares whether the names are spelt correctly or not. That would be the least of industry's concerns.
