    RAAus and ELAAA

    Not sure who wrote the ELAAA submission, but if Keith Page had much input, perhaps CASA are still trying to figure out what he said. I have absolutely no idea what he says in most of his posts here.

    Pilot charged

    Really? That would mean they would be guilty of murder or manslaughter. What happened to them?

    Canadian Pilot vacationing to Australia

    Hi Alex. It can be done but requires months of planing and paperwork because of our useless regulator. To fly to any airfield that has regular public transport requires an ASIC. Depending on how many hours you plan on flying it’s probably much easier just to find an instructor you get on with and fly with them.

    Moving Flight Schools

    Of course you can move. When you find a school you’re happy with they can contact your old school for your training file. All hours and exams are valid. Your log book belongs to you,take it with you.

    BASIC CLASS 2 - PRIVATE PILOT MEDICAL ANNOUNCED!

    As it took her 41 years to apply, perhaps they thought she wasn’t in all that much of a hurry.

    Pilot charged

    That why he is charged with manslaughter not murder. He allegedly entered the loop from a height he was not permitted to be at (lower than his authorised lowest level) at a speed well below what was required to commence the manoeuvre and when allegedly too low and slow at the top of the loop did not take his last chance to abort the manoeuvre by rolling out. It’s been said he was a very experienced ex RAF fast jet pilot, and current airline pilot. The following English law on one type of manslaughter may apply, the list of jobs could easily include pilot. From my reading, the more qualified and experienced you are, the more this applies to you. Manslaughter by gross negligence Under English law, where a person owes a duty of care (either by statute or by the neighbour principle[8]) and is negligent to such a degree that consequently the law regards it as a crime[9](namely the person has been grossly negligent) and that person causes the victim to die, she may be liable for gross negligence manslaughter.[10] The defendants in such cases are often people carrying out jobs that require special skills or care, such as doctors, teachers, police or prison officers, or electricians, who fail to meet the standard which could be expected from a reasonable person of the same profession.[11] In R v Bateman[12] the Court of Criminal Appeal held that gross negligence manslaughter involved the following elements: the defendant owed a duty to the deceased to take care; the defendant breached this duty; the breach caused the death of the deceased; and the defendant's negligence was gross, that is, it showed such a disregard for the life and safety of others as to amount to a crime and deserve punishment.

    Hello from beautiful NW Montana

    Welcome to the forum.
  10. Can someone point out just why this guy pulled his chute? As far as I could see he had a near miss, or did they actually collide?

    Stolen Garmin 296

    Low lifes. Never fear, I’m sure as the ASIC has been stolen, the Feds will spare no expense to find it!
  14. The fall of the shoulder of the road is substanial, as it needs to be, given the rains they get there. A four wheel drive car is made to drive off road, a Conquest is not. Five tons of aircraft held up br three skinny tires. Taking it off the road would have been a stupid decision. I’m guessing you’d never had to move an aircraft of that size on a slope without a tow bar.

    Ashby now on the chopping block

    Depends if it was accidental or deliberate. In other words did he just stray into ATC on the way to somewhere or put in a plan to deliberately fly into class C.
