Is There Any Evidence The RAAF Has A Positive Attitude To GA?

Just asking. If the answer is no, then the next question is are the RAAF part of GA's problems?

Mr. Doom and Gloom strikes again.

If he won the lottery he'd wring his hands and complain about something .... and blame CASA, ASA, ATSB, RAAF .....

You aren't drawing a long now.

You're cutting down the yew tree so you can craft the longbow yourself.

I'd swear the bloke drinks too much, but apparently he doesn't touch the grog.
Can you imagine waking up in the morning and deciding to post something like that??
What a miserable existence...

For what itís worth, perhaps only for interest sake only, a significant number of RAAF leadership past and present have owned and operated their own aircraft. Binskin (previous Chief of Defence Force) and Skidmore (previous Air Commander Australia) own a Birddog and CT-4 respectively. Plenty of GA flying clubs on RAAF bases, with flying lessons, aircraft hire etc, theyíre even open to civilian membership. RAAF sponsorship of the cadets, paying for their brand new Diamond DA40ís, and paying for the gas, exposing literally thousands of young kids to flying with FREE trial instructional flights; I can tell you right now the vast majority wonít become RAAF (hopefully some do). Thereís even a substantial number of RAAF drivers volunteering their time to fly them (for no pay), spending weekends away from home in a job where Iím already away a lot of the time, going to regional locations to take people flying to give them ďthe bug.Ē

All of these things seem to indicate it isnít that bad Sunfish.

So from the responses there is no evidence that the RAAF is anti GA. Alternately can you show where the RAAF is GA positive

GA aircraft make great target practice indicators for the Super Hornet attack radar - we love GA, much better than chasing around Lear 35s.

For many years RAAF Pearce hosted a flying club on the base. For a number of reasons they had to relocate to Gingin but still supported to an extent by RAAF

  • Why do you need evidence? What would this evidence look like?
  • What do you think GA's problems are?
  • Do you think the RAAF is part of GA's alleged problems?

Thank you VH-LFA, so the RAAF has a positive attitude to non-RAAF, non - RPT flying. I wasn’t sure that they were part of GA problems or not.
