    RAAus to disclose member details

    Doesn’t sound like a draft to me. Link and Monk giving replies, one is telling porkies by the looks.

    1400??????? Wonder how they were selected!! We had a survey.....trust me. Your details are private BUT ......... just trust me, typical politician style answer. I just hope EVERYONE thinks seriously about where we are heading with approach. Certainly not unexpected by some.

    Having just been shown a copy (as I no longer receive it myself) of M.Monk’s editorial in the current magazine which caused a bit of mirth, at least locally, normal irrelevant stuff until the last couple of paragraphs - it would be ironic if 4 board members throw him out after the mini non representative board was his (and a couple of others) claim to fame in order to gain autocratic control of RAA. There might be some light at the end of the tunnel after all, if they go through with it. Shades of the Rudd & Turnbull saga just up the road.

    Alternate organisation...deafening silence

    Just wait for the new admentents to the ops manual in process now, being forced through by the dictatorship of the current mini board (i.e 3 plus 1). It would be alleged as a favour to “mates” at a particular flying school! Sad reflection on what we have left of RAA, but expected. I haven’t seen ANYTHING from administration to members about this. If members accept this then I am left speechless.

    I had a lengthy telephone conversation with a director (in confidence) today, I recommend any interested member do the same. Certainly not a happy and agreeable board. Ask about any agreement with AVDATA!

    Is anybody in close contact with any of the board to ascertain what is really going on in secret? Most people wouldn’t know any of the board personally which was the obvious intention of the nationwide selection process.

    Typical aggorance on display.

    Just have a look at the number of airports that are members of this association will answer any doubt. Remember this CTA push is ONLY about RPC holders and RAA Reg qualifing aircraft ALREADY have access, have had for years. If anyone thinks they are going to get CTA without a CASA medical, at this stage anyway, are in a different world to me. RPC with a CASA medical is effectively a RPL, already available.

    This is the current method of control. No notice will ever be taken of the membership whilst total control of a roughly 10,000 membership organisation is vested in 4 people - just running their private agenda. Short of another General Meeting to regain control disagreement by members will continue to be treated as only NOISE. Electing 2 members each year will never accomplish change (as it was designed to prevent). General feeling of everyone I have spoken to is discust & annoyance but certainly not surprise. Seems to be an acceptance of an inevitable implosion.
  10. Try flying close without declaring formation in class C (where I spend most of my CTA time) and you will be given certain guidance - limited time in secondary & class D.
  11. “My worry (as FH sort of alluded to) is an RAA regoed aircraft/pilot having an incident with a major rpt aircraft at a cta controlled airport.” ——————————- Has been incident free to my knowledge for over 10 yrs, so nothing new here (for RAA reg aircraft, pilot must currently have GA licence or under instrution) I have been using my LSA in C & D for 10 years. Needs training but nothing great just some differences. There are plenty of 17yr olds flying in CTA. remember in CTA the tower ensures separation.

    The only way to get ANY satisfaction from the current administration is to call a General Meeting with the potential to overthrow them aka the “freedom to fly” fiasco.

    I would suggest there is a BIG difference between Govt. Depts. using supplied information to enforce the law to a PRIVATE COMPANY releasing personal details of customers to another party for monetary gain. I am not up with the current law surrounding this action but I certainly have reservations about its lawfulness.

    Small Flying Schools

    You can’t legislate common sense and a safety culture - if both (or either) are missing pieces of paper mean zero. It is a developed industry and will be defended to the death by individuals making money by writing heaps of paper to justify their existence but in the end someone has to do the actual work or in our case actually fly the aeroplane or the paper shufflers cease to exist. I can forecast some of the replies but will not entertain their attempted justification, life goes on with or without the tree destroyers (some actuall claim to be greenies as well).
