Gold Sunny, Gold.

about all that's left for us these days a good laugh.

Incidentally, rumour has it you can get a perfectly good ASIC in Punchbowl for twenty bucks.

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

Next week:
Hitler finds out heís been refused an ASIC due to an adverse criminal history.


rumour has it you can get a perfectly good ASIC in Punchbowl for twenty bucks.

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.

Couldnít agree more.

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

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. :mad:

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

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.

F Troop were far more strategically potent than the idiot fest in Canberra.

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

Lead Balloon 4th Aug 2019 00:52

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

OZBUSDRIVER 4th Aug 2019 05:49

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...

CaptainMidnight 4th Aug 2019 06:25

I'm sure someone will arrange a correction to the video ...


Manwell 4th Aug 2019 10:24

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.

YPJT 4th Aug 2019 10:43

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.

How about mass civil disobedience and tell em to all get stuffed? They canít ground everyone.

Lead Balloon 4th Aug 2019 12:59

Commercial pilots wonít civil disobedience sh*t. Theyíve been there and done that, and lost.

YPJT 4th Aug 2019 16:25

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.
