I’m sure Glen’s 97% and virtually the whole of the GA industry would agree

Attention to details, believed copy of CASA requirements example #4

Having left out so many

Glen’s hand written letter

Rule by ‘opinion’ not law, or rule by the people with power.

How well does anyone know the criminal code?

It is amazing this is kept such a secret.
