    Remove oil from brakes

    How dear are the brake shoes or pads? I know I would just replace both sets.

    And as in politics "The people have spoken, we have a Mandate" A good spin doctor will say "The vast majority are happy with our direction and performance " even if the positive responses are as low as 65% of the members surveyed.

    New ASIC requirements

    PapaFox and djpacro thanks for your informed information. Copy and pasted: 6.55 Exercise of privileges of flight crew licences etc (1) A person who holds a security designated authorisation must not perform a duty that is essential to the operation of an aircraft while the aircraft is in Australian territory if the Secretary: (a) has determined that the person has an adverse aviation security status; and (b) has given a copy of the determination to the person. Penalty: 20 penalty units. Note: A pilot licence, a flight engineer licence and a special pilot licence are security designated authorisations—see regulation 1.08 and the Act, section 74G. (2) Subject to subregulation (4), a person who is over 18, and holds a security designated authorisation, must not perform a duty that is essential to the operation of an aircraft while the aircraft is in Australian territory unless: (a) his or her aviation security status check is current; or (b) he or she has requested an aviation security status check. Penalty: 20 penalty units. (3) For paragraph (2)(a), a person’s aviation security status check is current at a particular time if: (a) it was carried out no more than 5 years before that time; or (b) he or she has requested that a new check be carried out; or © within the previous 2 years, he or she underwent a background check for the issue of an ASIC. (4) If a security designated authorisation is issued to a person who is under 18, subregulation (2) does not have effect in relation to him or her until 3 months after his or her 18th birthday. (2) says it all.

    New ASIC requirements

    I was told an alternate must be planed for every flight. The example given to me was if there is an incident at your destination, whether it is a private strip or not, and the runway is closed you need an alternate landing site. I was told it is one of the requirements that an ASIC must be carried with you in the plane on every flight. Once again I ask if there are any Instructors or CFIs that can confirm or deny that this is now the policy of RAAus.

    New ASIC requirements

    I was told by a CFI while doing a BFR that an ASIC is required in case I have to divert to an alternative landing site even though I use a private strip most of the time. Are there any instructors or CFIs that can confirm that is or isn't the new directions from the top?
  8. Trouble is that's all the public get to hear or read and that damages our reputation as responsible flyers.

  10. So David why are there different sections and rules in all the constitutions and model rules that you and I have seen and operated under if the AGM is just another General Meeting? It may be normal to conduct the business of the AGM and then declare the meeting closed followed closely by a General Meeting (usually after a coffee and sanga break) but it would be in breach not to close the AGM first. What is not normal in the calling of this particular AGM is the fact that resolutions were also called for. Can you show us anywhere in the constitution that states members resolutions can be heard at an AGM? In fact it goes to the extent of stating resolutions at General Meetings.An AGM is not for conducting normal business. As stated in the constitution a member may ask questions or pass comments about the way the organisation has been run but to take any action or to put forward a resolution I believe it would need to be done at a General Meeting or Special General Meeting. I am not passing any opinion on anything that kasper is trying to do but would like to point out the need to dot your i's and cross your t's. Cheers Scotty.
  11. The AGM notice in the mag did indeed mention members resolutions and proxies. This is not normal for AGM's. They are to inform the members of the condition of the organisation and not consider any general business other than that ariseing from the minutes of the previous AGM. 27 and 28 of the Constitution are in regard to General Meetings and not AGM's. 20 of the constitution is in regard to Annual General Meetings and 20.4 states 20.4 The Chairman of the Annual General Meeting must give Members as a whole a reasonable opportunity at the meeting to ask questions or make comments about the management of the Company. but there is no mention of any resolutions. I believe the notice of the AGM that included the submitting of resolutions was incorrect as it is not the normal practice for an AGM. Cheers Scotty.
  12. General business is not discussed at AGM's . I would be worried if they refused your resolutions at the General Meeting held after the AGM. Cheers Scotty.

    RAAus Insurance

    From the recommendations I have Willis were competitively priced and from my conversations with them they were very helpful but that is now another ship that has sailed. Interesting you don't like PSB either Don. Do you believe it has been a good move to change to PSB if you feel they haven't delivered a good service or is this change been just priced based without looking at the big picture, or is there other forces at play here? Cheers Scotty.

    That is my understanding at this time. I wasn't able to get onto my other contact at Willis this afternoon to see what he has to say but I will try again tomorrow. Cheers Scotty.

    Finally got the chance to ring the office and was informed PSB take over as our insurance agents 31/ October. Was also told my complaint about Willis was not the first and they have been telling others the same they told me. I will try and contact a different person at Willis I have a contact for and see if I get the same story as before. Cheers Scotty.
