Getting back to the subject of Part 91, a well known lawyer, well experienced in the aviation field, believes that significant sections of Part 91 (and much else in the regulations) is unconstitutional.

Certainly, at least one amendment to the Act during the reign of Herr McCormick was unconstitutional, based on court precedents, but without a High Court challenge (paid for by who?) it stands.

Slightly more narrow please, if you have not looked at any other section of Part 91 and you are a pilot, look at the responsibilities of the pilot in command, then look at the US and NZ (or our current rule) rules, or if you happen to have a copy, the first draft Part 91 from 1999, and have a look at the legal minefield CASA has created in the current Part 91.

Remember, this is all CASA's own work, not any other agency, not any "Government policy", just CASA's preferred approach to the criminal act of committing aviation.

Tootle pip!!

Going back to dicks point. Cost. I had a long term plan to get into scenics, start small, build the business etc.

Started out 2009. Learn to fly as you earn for me. So.eventually attained the cpl. Bought the aircraft. Built some hours. Think years to do this. And as I am working away to realise the plan and go into a General Aviation business the rules are getting changed. The scenics approval process changes looking good fir me to get into business.

So now I am where ?.. Scenics approval project knocked on the head internally by CASA. Risk assessment done and CASA project officer made a good case for simplified approval process..and still it got knocked on the head.

So just like a new RPT I will need a shitload of paperwork to start up. Well..Cant find or afford a chief pilot. Plus An estimated $20,ooh CASA fees to get an AOC set up. Forget it. The aircraft can sit in the hangar. Think of who is not getting work or money from my fledgling business...fuel provider, the lame, the young new cpl needing hours, insurance co, govt coffers. The list goes on.

Extra annoying as I know RAA are doing TIFs left right and centre .. A disguised joy flight.

There is still a flutter of interest out there in investing in GA but the rules HAVE to change to get rid of all the red tape AND bring down compliance costs in aviation. GA is dying because of over regulation ..fact. The evidence is overwhelming.

CASA wears its immunity from having to take the health of the aviation sector into account like a medal on its chest.

Until the Act is changed to require the sector to be fostered and thus specifically prevent CASA from achieving its safety objectives by stopping aviation at all, nothing can change.

To put it another way, they don't have to care if your business cannot get off the ground. Until they are made to care, there is no chance of change.
