Checkboard - regardless of what people think, I love the basic simplicity of the US system coupled with the philosophy behind it.
If I can try and put that in a few simple phrases:

Alphacentauri - a nice point and you are quite correct, although I might say that IMO the OAR has paralysis and a lack of analysis! The last review I could find was the 2017 supplementary I referred...

Lead - While I agree with alphacentauri's argument, I worry about "paralysis by analysis". If figures such as he/she wants do exist then let us apply them to Ballina and make a decision.

Jmmoric - I understand exactly what you mean, there is a cost but the question is cost versus benefit. There comes a stage when the benefit outweighs the cost, and if a mathematical calculation does...

GF - Thanks for the question, the short answer is that Class E would not have prevented or even mitigated the incident at Ballina. I will try and keep the longer answer as short as possible.

TIEW - I too am waiting to find out if the CA/GRO heard the transmission from the Jab, however, I do not agree with your conclusion.

There are a couple of threads running elsewhere on Class E airspace that cover the issues at Ballina because this is a national problem, as many have alluded to in this thread.

TIEW - The time limit is ten years, but I know where you are coming from.

Not necessarily, Pinky, the system would just have to go through an approval process to be used in ATS. However, CA/GRS is not an ATS, as determined by CASA.
It would be interesting if the operator...

Hi Dick,
My conversations since leaving CASA lead me to understand that the reference to 1200 feet at Ayers Rock became a sticking point because neither CASA OAR nor Airservices understands how...
