So much bloat on websites these days. If a pilot can read a NOTAM or Weather report it indicates they are

1) Intelligent enough to read concise information without the bloat.
2)Just want to facts without the bloat.

What is far more important than "excitement" is being able to present complex information concisely and clearly, that is arranged logically, that can be searched and cross referenced easily.

To do this the fundamental rules have to constructed in a clear, logical and self consistent manner.

As a software developer, too much information these days is just "patching". Something needs to be updated. So patch it. You can only do this so many times before what was orginally a simple idea becomes mind numbingly complex and obtuse. However, the process of patching has gone on for so long the task of 'refactoring' it terrifies the managment. They know it will take a lot of time and money, and produce nothing more than what was originally there. It will "only" be easier to maintain and use.

The "excitement" proposal is just another patch. Take this mess and dress it up so that it looks like we have made a serious attempt to make everything workable again. Much cheaper, looks pretty when you show it in a five minute presentation to management and politicians, but in practice no better than what you started off with.

This.

I'm not sure posting the content of letters and actions taken here is wise, or helpful to the cause - except perhaps to the wrong parties.

I happy to see your shameless plug Glen.

Almost 2 days since my last total GFM update - almost $1,100 extra since then sitting at $43,294.

If 200 of the 220 donors to date dug in for only another $35 each - you are over the $50K.

Hi Glen,

May have missed it, but do we have a link to the Media Pack?

I recall the start and the length being discussed but not your end result (I do not normally go back thru past history of threads - only read whats new).

and another one bites the dust

Well since this process has started some of the "main players" seem to have "departed" CASA.

First to depart was the Regional Manager. Then another senior executive left who was heavily involved, and I hear on the grapevine that the CMT leader, who lead the initial action has resigned to join another company in a "safety role".

Mr Crawford, as I said to you before. Good ethics will prevail, and you will be left standing alone!!!!!

Bendalot- the media release

Dear Bendalot, for someone I haven't met before, your support has been very much appreciated. Having spoken to you, and many others on the phone, I appreciate that you are someone else impacted by the small but toxic element within CASA that causes so much damage to so many people, and their livelihoods.

Regarding the media packs, I am somewhat varying the contents.

In all media packs I have included.

The single page media release cover page as per post 590.

I have attached the two articles written by Australian Flying. The first written shortly after we got our CASA approval, and the second and more recent article after I had the change of CMT to CMT 3, and they began pulling it apart.

I provide a link to this chat forum, to indicate the level of support, and associated discussion.

I provide a link to the GoFundMe page, and draw their attention to the supportive comments.

I attach my letter to the PM that remains unresponded to after more than one month, and two submissions.

In all correspondence I do name the people that I am bringing the substantive allegations against. I feel it is important, because my accusations are not against the CASA personnel generally, and I want to minimise any damage to their credibility. I do genuinely feel that such malpractice within CASA by those personnel, demonstrably and measurably compromises the safety of air navigation.

The matters are substantive, and despite Mr Carmodys and the Boards best efforts, they are not going to go away.

As I am convinced that Mr Carmodys alleged links to the Liberal Party may be a contributing factor, on Monday I will be sending an amended package that I will publish on here. That will be going to every cross bench Senator.

At this stage, I have only distributed the Media Pack to supporters, and please email [email protected] if you would like me to send one through to you.

With some assistance, I have obtained some exceptional contacts in the media. My preference is to ensure I have exhausted all processes through my local Member Ms Gladys Liu before launching a more public campaign to highlight the dangerous malpractice that exists within our own Civil Aviation Safety Authority.

Donations paused

Our team has contacted the organizer with a solution, and donations will resume once the issue is resolved.

? any ideas - legal intervention by CAsA??

I assume the goal is adjusted due the cost per donation $1,101 not so bad IMO.

A solution? Does that imply that there's a problem? What could go possibly wrong with a crowdfunding page?

There is a transaction fee for each donation of 2.2% + 30 cents.

So 2.2% is $957.66
220 donations @ $0.30 is $66.00

That totals $1,023.66 in transaction costs to-date - that seems reasonable to me.

Donations

Just confirmed with my sources that donations will continue to be accepted only after Oct 9. This is the message they received from GoFundMe:

“Hi there,

It looks like donations to your campaign have been temporarily paused because your beneficiary hasn't withdrawn the funds you’ve raised so far. Setting this up takes just a few minutes, then you’ll be able to accept donations once again.

Due to financial regulations, our payment partner cannot hold on to your funds for extended periods of time.”

I did hear a similar thing, that current funds need to be transferred and that was in progress.

UPDATE

Hi all.
First. My Go Fund Me page has taken a pause from donations. That is my fault. A condition of the fund is that some money must be transferred out after a certain period. I believe 30 days. They are funds entrusted to me to pursue a specific objective, and I do not want them in my personal account under any circumstances, and particularly at a time where I am fighting for the survival of my business.

Once I move funds out, I will be able to accept further support from industry.

03/10/19

Dear Ben Morgan (AOPA)

You may be aware that I have a crowd funding page assisting me to hold certain personnel in CASA to account for their conduct. A condition of that fund is that a component of the funds be transferred to an account bearing the name Glen Buckley.

My query. Would AOPA have the ability to promptly establish an account with the name Glen Buckley on it. I propose to transfer the funds to that account and request that an AOPA nominee be a joint signatory to me. Those funds are to be disbursed to a nominated legal firm to pursue the validity of Glen Buckley's claim against the conduct of the nominated CASA personnel.

In the event that the funds were not required, AOPA would assist in disbursing those funds to the donors in cases where that was their preference. Any unused funds or undisbursed funds after 30/06/20 would be retained by AOPA and used specifically for safety education.

I am trying to achieve something that is "simple, accountable, and effective". I am not in a position to fund expensive complicated legal procedures. I hope that out mutual good intentions and transparency will suffice.

Respectfully and thanking you in anticipation of your assistance, cheers. Glen Buckley

MEDIA PACK

Any person wanting a media pack is able to email me

[email protected]

It will provide an easy to understand overview of this matter and will make following it from the start on pprune clearer.

I am not asking for an expensive complicated process. I am simply asking the PM to nominate one person completely of his own choosing, who is not on the CASA payroll.

I am asking that his nominee sit in a room with me and Mr Carmody the CEO of CASA.

Mr Carmody would be encouraged to bring as many attendees as he wants. That could include the four personnel that I have allegations about.

I only want to bring my Dad.

The PMs nominee can sit in a room for 3 hours, and listen to both sides of the argument.

If at the end of that meeting that nominee looks me in the eye and says. "Those personnel have nothing to answer for".

Well! I promise im never voting Liberal again!

Mr PM. It a solution that is fair and importantly. It is Simple, Accountable, and Effective, and that's important!!!

Glen,
Someone with your power of attorney has to go to a Bank and set up an account as "Joe Bloggs as Trustee For Glen Buckley"

Best of luck mate
