Part 61’s a pig and the regulatory ‘reform’ program’s a self-licking icecream.

People on 6 figures create a dog’s breakfast, then get paid 6 figures to “improve” the dog’s breakfast.

Oh dear.

How many more $$$s are being wasted here by CASA I wonder.

This is now totally out-of-control.

$200k+ is the new $100k these days.

Most of us white collars and public servants don't get out of bed for less than $200k nowadays.

Wasn't the head of Border Patrol on over $600k when he employed his girlfriend?

The dented das carbody also on 600 +

Top licks on those icecreams too, ...bonuses !! FFS !!

If one does the job as specified for that amount of remuneration...whats with the bonus.?? And all the cars, cards, travel and perks. Gotta love 'em !

These bureaucrazies sure are a one way street.

Aviation client gets stressed due CAsA BS...bad luck
CAsA person feels 'stressed'..no worries take 6 weeks, 3 months off on full pay.!!

Aviation participant pinged with NCNs for minor issues, torque screwdriver not re-calibrated within the time they reckon it should be, some missing paperwork..tough
CAsA person loses "mislays" /shreds paperwork, demonstrates incompetence...no worries, carry on. Next !

Aviation participant is falsely accused, penalties, strict liability, prosecution attempted..
..bad luck. Just wear it.
CAsA persons involved , CYA 101, protect with lies and BS. No worries, Back to the trough. All good.

Aviation participant runs a workshop, employs people, pays tax and contributes to the 'common wealth'.
CAsA persons suck up mega bucks, buggerize a vital national industry, produce nothing for the benefit of, and are detrimental to the Commonwealth.

We really do need a revolution. !

To quote an ex ATO employee I know.

"We had more rights in the public service than most ordinary people. You could kill someone and still not lose your job".

That lady who sued her public employer after her hotel bed collapsed when she was bonking someone while on business only lost her case after it reached the high court. It cost the Australian tax payer a lot of money to defend the case but I feel was worth it.

Technically that is correct... or at least until you've been found guilty.

But if you're locked up waiting to go to trial, it's kinda hard to do your job If that happened though, you'd be stood down on full pay until your trial. The system is good like that

I think the post from aroa above should be cut and pasted by everyone in a letter to their respective MPs. Regardless of whether in govt or opposition.

It might end up being nothing more than the proverbial peeing yourself in a wetsuit. But then again it might also make a lot more people wake up to the debacle CASA has become.

Gads! Am I really a dinosaur? Unreachable? Indeed!

Jabawocky posted years ago how easy it is to install the FAA regs suite here...took him all of three minutes to change all references from FAA to CASA in Word. Considerably cheaper than the fifteen years and multi millions of dollars invested by the CASA to simplify the regs.

You cannot do wholesale change and then micro manage the inevitable stuffups without creating more chaos. Aviation could be rightly said has remained safe over the years since 1988 DESPITEthe machinations of DoA/CAA/CASA.

Oz,
I agree, but it is getting harder, as CASA gets deeper into day to day micromanagement of individuals and operators, particularly GA.
Tootle pip!!

LeadSled, would it be fair to say that it's their approach in wanting to Micro Manage Aviation whilst at the same time distancing themselves from making any real decisions that seems to create the biggest problems?

That is to say, they want total control and try to tell us what to do but then when it comes time to writing make things not clear enough or not well thought through enough in their desperate attempt to be at arms length and not liable for anything?

Ixy...correct.

Our CAsA 'masters have ' total control, all the power, claim all the 'expertise' and demand to tell you how you will live your life in aviation, while micro managing yr business.

But if anything hits THEIR fan...then its no accountability, no liability. CYA 10 thru 121.
Nobody is ultimately responsible for anything...its the legal loonies collective .
