The number of "renew by CASA only" medical certificates is subject to mathematical computation.

Simply take the total number of Avmed operational staff, multiply be tthe number of "difficult - renew by CASA only" certificates they would like to handle in one day, multiply that by days worked per year and voila! you have the desired number to provide jobs for life.

spot on there Sunny . . .. devotee of Yes Minister that you were/are

the call to find Rob Liddell and lure him back is pure wishful thinking

if the new incumbent is from the existing ranks ( DF springs to mind )

then we will be one step forward two steps back


pause for light relief . ..

second lady back . . third lady's finger. .. . up the fourth lady's crack

Good riddance - the previous comments are spot on though. Just hope PN hasn't set in chain an irreversible path back to the dark ages.

Unfortunately it is possible that the incumbent will have a say in his replacement, unless this is a real clear out, instigated from above, you may be in for more of the same! If it is a clear out then deputies will possibly follow quite soon.

What might help the pilot cause is if the AMEs, as a body, made representation to CASA, but given the level if dissatisfaction already expressed here it is hard to believe that the AMEs haven't already done that.

At my renewal, the DAME's words were to the effect:

CASA bureaucracy makes the french and the africans look exceedingly well organised and efficient.

Whether she would have written to CASA...

Pilot in today for a flight review, told how he did medical, DAME signed him off then CASA wouldn't renew it, sent him off to a cardiologist who told him, for a few hundred bucks, that there was nothing wrong with him and no reason for him to be there.

have spent almost 6 mths trying to persuade these dunderheads that I can hold a class 2 medical after my Dame & cardiac surgeon gave me a clean bill of health. Having had a stress test , an unnecessary angiogram & a heart wall scan, with no symptoms , these people put me through 6 moths of delaying tactics, complex case meetings & a further stress echo test ( showing no change since my last test in the early 90's) they finally had no case to pursue so today I was issued with a class 2 unrestricted medical. in spite of this Indian doctor & his name is on my certificate! Good riddance to this sort of arrogant public service nonsense, its killing the industry so to all pilot's out there ,don't give up! Fight the bastards
