"AOPA is relieved a new Director of Aviation Safety has been appointed.

 

We congratulate Mark Skidmore AM on his appointment and we hope he will bring not only his wealth of experience in high end military aviation, but also (sic) as a passionate pilot of his vintage Globe Swift, into his new position."

Agreed, his credentials are outstanding. Leadership qualities in the services need to be honed into administrative capacities in the bureaucracy for him to be able to make change. We can but hope that he implements the Federal Governments' red tape reduction policy by way of slashing the longrunning CASA rewrite of the CAR's, and bringing some common sense to bear on CASAs' handling of all sectors of GA. We as an industry need to get 'into his ear' before he's infected by the internal malaise' so evident in our regulator. happy days,
