Glen, I rounded it out at the $51,500 as an estimate the leaves a net of the $50K for the legal review that you expected.

If those expectations are incorrect, just update your goal. I did say the 50 would be meet and many forget operating costs even on a free platform.

Mate I have heard you say you have lost everything and nothing left to loose and talks of breakdowns and loss of house and stuff.

That's material shit. I have seen your family's love for you - and they say you have nothing, but clearly love you.

Strangers like myself offer support in many ways, mine now is to relax until the new year. Spend this with your loved ones in a positive way, it is clear they are concerned about you.

So take a break and enjoy as best possible Christmas, your war chest is there even it took a break - but got it's target.

"A CASA spokeswoman said the agency was in the process of "transforming the way we operate to provide more consistent and standardised safety oversight", and was developing a new "oversight model" that would identify staff roles and capabilities."
Another meaningless, pointless, ludicrous statement from CASA.

Surely CASA don't think the Australian aviation industry believes that rubbish?

Admission of guilt?


"A CASA spokeswoman said the agency was in the process of "transforming the way we operate to provide more consistent and standardised safety oversight", and was developing a new "oversight model" that would identify staff roles and capabilities."

So CASA are admitting;
1. They donít provide very good consistent and standardised safety oversight? That should scare the Australian public and the Minister.
2. They are developing a new oversight model? The current one isnít effective? The current one is out of step or touch with oversight expectations?
3. The new oversight model will identify staff roles and capabilities? So they donít know what there staff are doing, or whether they are even capable of performing the roles that they currently do?

Wow. What an admission. A dysfunctional steaming heap. All time low morale, Inspectors speaking to the media about safety concerns, and an organisation that canít even balance itís budget let alone provide safety oversight. If the Minister isnít listening, well he ought to be now. Mr Carmody is presiding over an epic failure.

Címon Scomo, while you are on a roll and boning public servants, surely this mob could do with a giant enema? Iíve got the hose ready!!

I don't think so. Superlative statements are somewhat ubiquitous in the Aussie scene to the point where they create an inflation of their own and define the new normal. The standard statement that you would expect from a government agency would here be perceived as not trying hard enough. The ATO probably hired the same ad agency with their "new tax system that works better for ALL Australians"

reorganization is the standard bureaucratic response to perceived failure. It’s a great excuse. “just wait until we are reorganized/transformed, then everything will be fixed” not......

The government earlier this year amended the Civil Aviation Act so that CASA must now "consider the economic and cost impact on individuals, businesses and the community" of its safety regulation. This followed an outcry from smaller aviation operations who claimed they were being strangled by red tape.

That says it all Glen!

We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.
Charlton Ogburn in 1957 on reorganization is often spuriously attributed to a Gaius Petronius Arbiter c. 27 – 66 AD.

Dear Glen,

The year is pretty much over and well you have had a big one, and been very public.

From where I sit you got early presents a few listed in reverse order.

3) Industry support from many.
2) Financial support from strangers and friends.
1) Love from family publicly shown.

My advice is just love your time with your family over these last days of the year - I wish you and your family all the best.

Glenn = I recently left CASA because it had totally lost it's way. The body (it is not an organisation) that I originally joined was transformed after Mr Carmody joined into a true branch of the public service. Layer upon layer of new management, confusion about roles, lots of "Plans" but no coordination of change, zero documentation, inability to keep regulations up to date, and as far as I could determine absolutely no safety assessment process. An SMS, as required by all authorisation holders, is completely missing from CASA. No-one in my branch could even detail the required content of a Safety Case or how such a submission would be assessed by CASA!
! tried to raise your plight internally to get the corporate response but all I ever got was "he's a nutter', "difficult to deal with" and as for Pprune - who reads that rubbish anyway! In other words corporate denial that there was even a problem and if the messenger dared to suggest CASA may be wrong - there are a thousand egos willing to toe the company line.
I wish you luck but they have got so much money set aside to protect the Minister from criticism that they will simply use the legal system to bankrupt you over an over until you are forced to give up.
My advice is to forget tribunals and courts and go political. If you can get a politician onside money becomes meaningless. Your issues can be raised in parliament under privilege and reported on verbatim by the media. That will really put the pressure right back where the Minister does not like it - in plain view.

Back from a ripper Xmas with the family. A Kris Kringle where you had to make something for under $10, and then we voted on best and worst gift. Truckloads of fun, and just what the doctor ordered.

Mr Approach, i have no doubt you hit the nail on the head with that post, and admittedly it was somewhat reassuring to read. Nice timing, cheers.

I cannot attend to anything legal here, and have to avoid those topics, needless to say at this stage it will take slightly longer than i had anticipated. It is a significant task.

On the political side Mr Approach, i have made a number of requests to my local member for Chisholm, Ms Gladys Liu requesting a meeting. I believe there have been 5 requests over 3 months, with no response other than the automatic acknowledgement. I will write one further request and post it on here in order to elicit a response.

Cheers, Glen.

Gladys will have been advised by the Liberal secretariat not to touch you with a ten foot pole. Furthermore, she is no longer facing a bye election so she doesn’t need aviation industry support. You need to target marginal seats or you are wasting your time.

You will get nothing from Gladys, forget about her, you are wasting your time. All you will get is “I am advised that CASA is addressing your issues, consequently I have nothing to say”.

You should have gone political much earlier while Gladys was before the high court.

To put it another way, te only thing CASA fears is the Ministers office.

I doubt that, the various iterations of the regulator have managed to bluff and bullsh1t to the incumbent 'minister' for as long as I can remember.
Mind you, many of those previous ministers didn't want to know anything anyway.

Application of turd polish required

Iím hearing that the place is a dishevelled
mess. Good people left, and others in the process of bailing. Structure isnít working, budgets arenít workable and bullying and incompetence running rife. Supposedly worse than when the The Screaming Skull and then Skidmark weíre running the place.

Iíve said it for decades, it will take a large smoking hole for anyone to pay attention to the place.

CASA & Incompetence

Australia used to be a smart, first world country and now its shine is turning to shite.

I just did my CASA Medical renewal and the DAME (who does medicals for at least 5 other authourities) tells me that Australia's CASA Medical paperwork is a FARCE and takes exponentially longer than any other medical.

If you are reading this CASA - its a FARCE you Fxcks...

MR Approach has certainly hit the nail on the head. I can say that from experience having worked for CASA.

Mark Skidmore in my opinion was an excellent DAS and a great man, however he was handed a really big shit sandwich when he took on the roll. I donít blame him for pulling out when he did, which was a sign of true professionalism in my opinion given the state of play within the organisation and government at the time.
