Torture by bureaucracy

As many of us have been saying for many years, CASA is a dysfunctional organisation. It is riven with hubris and operates in a manner that would be intolerable in any other area of civil society....

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

Fliegenmong, how true, I’ve read several comments from USA aviation blogs about Australian aviation that would make you cringe.

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