And I love the ATSB bit about the unknown and therefore unnamed passengers who allegedly sited the Tobago.

No way that could ever be checked.

I understand RAs mainly occur in controlled airspace due to pilot or controller error.

Are you suggesting this is an airspace design problem?

With so many of our airlines operating into places like Ballina and Port Macquarie where there is no transponder requirement for VFR I suppose there is less chance of RAs occurring.

But you don’t complain about this. I am proud I negotiated the most onerous class E transponder requirements in the world. I sold it on the fact that VFR may get reduced delays. I was conned on that one- the E was changed to C but the transponder requirement remained. Part of the almost complete lack of ethics in the Canberra system!

Total one way ratchet of increasing costs and screwing GA. Ha Ha. Chickens coming home to roost. Training industry almost destroyed. Must make you feel terrible!

So if I've got this right LeadSled, I'll be able to cruise over Tullamarine willy nilly in class E at any time? That's what I'm hearing... have we ever been able to do that?
SWTT,
If that is the way the airspace was set up, above whatever the height of C was, the answer is yes.
I suppose you know that you can fly over Los Angeles International (and many other major US airports) in Class B airspace, in designated lanes, and nobody gets their knickers in a twist.
A lot of you could do with a dose of experience outside Australia, but particularly in US and Canada, to see how easy it is, things that you seem to imagine are beyond the pale (or, if you prefer, Pale).
And how well Class E works.
Tootle pip!!

Nice attempt at a diversion Dick. The question (yet again) is if the aircraft were going to miss by as much as you claim and it was never a problem then why was there a TCAS RA event?

Because there has never ever been a requirement or training for a VFR pilot using alerted see and avoid with another aircraft to remain so far apart that a RA does not take place.

CASA has not seen a requirement for that.

Le Ping,
Do you actually know anything about the programming of TCAS/ACAS in various modes. I do.
If you did, you would understand there is nothing inconsistent with an adequate separation determined by visual on the other aircraft and an RA.
During the same period there was what was, in my opinion, a far worse event north of Brisbane.
In my opinion, and many others, an airline aircraft changed heading to deliberately create a loss of separation event to discredit the trial, such was the vehement opposition to change by domestic airline pilots.
All these years later, sadly, nothing has changed.
Tootle pip!!

How many RAs do you reckon take place each year in our existing wound back airspace that you like so much?

Doesn’t that mean we should change the airspace?

Ha ha Gotcha!

Leadsled. The Tobago pilot in The Launceston incident always claimed that the 737 turned towards him.

Very interesting.

Itís part of the Canberra dishonest corrupt system.
Is that the same corrupt Canberra system you availed yourself of when you spoke to Barnaby and Albo about changes to the CASA Act? If Canberra is corrupt then its because those with money and influence have access to the politicians that ordinary people don't have. If you are so sure about the corruption in the ATSB then go to the media with evidence and name names.

I'm guessing you won't.

Ha ha Gotcha!
What are you, a five year old!

Look left. What I did was totally open. I put the proposal into the media in a totally open way. I put my name to the proposal in a totally open way.

I have never donated a cent to either of them.

I do not need the changes. I am fortunate to be able to afford any extra cost your Canberra mates can dream up.

Others are not so fortunate.

A cannot come up with any ATSB names because I have never been able to find out who was responsible for the investigation. No one would pick up the phone and explain where they believed I was mistaken.

And I failed with Barnaby and Anthony.

And I am a 74 year old who has benefitted from the previous leaders who got this country going.

I am angry and fed up with our current group of non leaders- aren’t you?

No not 5. But I still have a sense of fun. Gotcha!

Well, yer doing enough "blabbing continuously" here, why wouldn't we expect it on your airwaves?

You can't blame Le P, Dick. Those that work for these government departments are brainwashed into thinking that they are doing the right thing. Team meetings, steering committees, continuous improvement sessions, team lunches, the list goes on of the things that give employees a warm and fuzzy feeling to make them feel valuable. It's a hard pill to swallow that think that you're contributing to something that maybe unsafe, inefficient and not for the greater good, so any wonder he's defending the system that employs him.

Sort of a bit like North Korea?

The secrecy and lack of names is similar!

You've clearly done the research so how about you inform us how many there are? And whether they're en-route or TMA. Got me nothing.

But there was a requirement to remain clear of IFR routes was there not? Something the Tobago pilot clearly didn't do, at least not with his brain engaged. 1 in 60 rule anyone? That is why there was a TCAS RA event.

Why didn't the Tobago pilot pipe up and say something? He thought they were going to be clear? He thought bloody well wrong. And that's why it was a whole crock.

Do tell about the event north of Brisbane. Any reference to a report?

I'm fully aware TCAS RAs and visual separation aren't mutually exclusive. The question is why did the Tobago pilot put himself where he was by thinking a whole two degrees difference in radial was adequate and why didn't he pipe up once he heard the 737.

A requirement for VFR aircraft to remain clear of IFR routes would be as much nonesense now as it was then. It canít be done now, and couldnít be done then.

One wonders how all of those commercial aircraft flying in and out of airports in the US deal with all the RAs. Thatís why I wonít fly on any commercial airline in or out of or within the US. Itís dangerous.

How many RAs are there in the US? How many in E? How do they deal with an RA? They obey it.
