  1. This is the latest email out from RAAus and I don't know how I feel about it...The message I am getting from it is "if your business will suffer from the potential CASA action then send a letter to your local MP about it", the way I took it is that business comes before safety, well that is the feeling I got from it submission. Our stance, in simple terms, is that we agree there is a need for improvement but we feel that the restrictions proposed would put undue pressure on the recreational aviation sector and that this may have a negative impact on our ability to deliver safety benefits
  2. My opinion, for what it is worth is CASA has had to act on statistics that they and the ATSB have been gathering for over 12 months now. Audits of Jabiru have been done over those 12 months. CASA has a mandate of SAFETY for everyone in aviation, not just pilots but also passengers and those on the ground. If they had said to Jabiru or any other aircraft manufacturer or airline "Hey, how about fixing this issue" the possibility of a reply being "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" then CASA has to state the implications of not doing what they have asked and what they are legislated to do.

  5. It really is going to come down to the need for all recreational aircraft (RAA or GA) to be aware of, monitor and give way to the commercial flights. it our current political climate without the commercial flights you can be pretty sure that the airfield is not far away form being a housing estate.

  7. (Somebody) Took this picture in the cockpit today returning from ******* on a B777. We are landing at Heathrow on the same runway where an identical B777 so nearly came to grief recently. As you can see from the wheel ruts, they only just made it over the perimeter road and landing lights. They were all very, very lucky on that day. Incidentally, that part of the airport has now been dubbed 'Cowards Corner' after the First Officer who actually landed the thing.

    J230 Brakes

    Are your disc rotors the ones with the vents/holes or are they solid. ??? When we changed to the vented ones and the latest (last Year) pad material, our brakes improved 3000% and still with the original standard caliper.
