You couldn't make this sh$%t up.

It doesn't have to be perfectly good because no one checks them. It's the biggest aviation scam in the world. There should be a government inquiry in to this to see who benefits from this scam.

Well, at the cost of issue/renewal, it's clearly not benefitting those who have pay for the (so-called) privilege.

So, I'd say the only ones who really benefit from the $$$s that have to be paid for the ASIC idiocy are the government and the issuers.

Thorn Bird......can you send me the address of the Punchbowl outfit please?

What would happen if we all just let our ASICs expire and just continued on doing what we do?

Excellent idea. However, there are more than enough drones to probably negate any effect.

Just a small factual error: CASA didn't introduce ASIC's. They are just an issuing authority as are many other organisations.

TIEW is correct. ASICs were not the 'brainchild' - perhaps brainfart would be the more accurate description - of CASA.

no, it wasn't the CASA. it was DoTaRS and in particular, a reject from the department of health who had this idea about kerosene baths...

You know, the most stupid part of the whole thing is that we are sitting around complaining about all the shit they throw at us, instead of working together and doing anything about it. No wonder they think we're easy marks.... because we are.

Manwell,
I would not say that the pilot fraternity are easy marks, however they have been conspicuous by their absence in the plethora of consultation that has taken place over several years.. Even the TWU has in the past had their people attending and pushing their concerns.
So much of the ASIC requirements are now tied up in legislation which is neither quickly or easily changed even if you are able to give the Department a compelling case and get them to agree and take it to the minister.

They will grab one or two recalcitrants, put them through the wringer and everyone else will go "sh!t" and quietly clip their ASICs back on.
