Here comes GA Mr Deputy PM

A very "rattly" day yesterday folks.

I will be back a bit later on today, and we will be fighting. This will be the battle that leads to the Judicial Inquiry, Royal Commission, or Special Ministerial inquiry.

To many people have endured the cruelty and malpractice in that Organisation that does absolutely nothing to enhance safety, and as Industry will confirm, we have a unique situation in the Western World where CASAs toxic culture and total misalignment with Industry is actually dangerous, and I say that from first hand experience. CASA actually degrades safety outcomes, and damages the Australian owned sector of the industry.

Trust me, when I tell you that what I have posted on here over recent months is only the tip of the ice berg. Why will my outcome be different than those before me. Because unlike Bruce Rhoades and the many before me that have had there reputations trashed by that toxic culture. In my case. THERE IS NO SAFETY CARD to play Mr Crawford. In fact this time, I hold the safety card.

I will post later on today, but that post will be to you, the industry, my friends, my past staff, schoolmates, mentors, etc that have shown me so much support .

I truly love you, and I mean it. Im here today because of you. I mean it!!!!!

Awesome! Now we need a way to spread the word to all aerodromes and all flight schools in the country to reach the GA community at large. Everyone stands to benefit from Glen's fight.

Someone who knows the gofundme instigator Cale Johnston might want to suggest a quick update to the text (created June 5 2019) and, if I may, a short, 1-2 paragraph summary/abstract in preamble followed by the detailed timeline of events. There's also a mention of a linked document (click here) that doesn't work.

Two Facebook groups that spring to mind are ‘Pilots Lounge Australia’ and ‘Bush Flyers Down Under’. I would also suggest that Stefan Drury (YouTube) be contacted, he may (or may not) wish to discuss this issue on his channel. Just my thoughts.

True. There's also https://www.recreationalflying.com/f...al-discussion/ which gathers some folks.

This needs to be framed not as just financially supporting Glen in his fight, but supporting a key fight that should bring about an inquiry into CASA. I think that is the best way to get broad support right across the industry. There will be people that don't know Glen or his issues with CASA, but will have their own beef and want to see accountability brought.

Also given all the various threads on here over the years criticizing the regulator on all manor of problems, I would be expecting one Mr D Smith to be someone that we should be looking to for support.

I doubt he would want to get involved, otherwise CASA will hit him up for an AOC for making money from his YouTube channel !!

Which of course there is no irony lost on how absurd the rules have become!

Can we also get a screen shot of your sons school fees
(just the bpay ref and amount)? It’d be nice if the flying community could keep him in his school for you.

Pecker up Glen !...may the force be with you.
Lets hope the growing ground swell of support can turn into a tsunami and finally swamp the rotten place out of existence with a JI or RC.
The GA Industry never deserved this bastard outfit, nor do we, the av-people have to put up with it..

That's indeed very good!

Currently the Gofundme page has no face on it but just the APTA logo, unlike most other pages which truly gives them a more relatable, human touch. I'm actually thinking that linking a small (2-3 min) YouTube video to the Gofundme page where Glen personally exposes his plight and gives a short summary would be beneficial to his cause. There'd be a link to the video from the Gofundme and, more importantly, in the other direction too. Many people share stuff over Whatsapp and a small video might be easier for strangers to connect quickly with Glen on this. YouTube videos have a strong potential to go viral. I expect it wouldn't take long for this to catch even more traction this way.

A quick look and the crowdfunding for legal support is not that great, but there are exceptions.

Certainly parallels between CAsA and the ATO.
