Full details can be viewed at This amazing bird has less than 50 hours TSN. I have placed a video on the web site that shows off the flying capabilities well. It’s not of this particular REGO but it shows what the model can do.

CASR 42 & 145 It’s getting very interesting Is your business affected by these new regulations? Lots of good info to be found on CASA’s web site. But at the end of the day you still need to write a whole bunch of BS. Get to it folks the clock is ticking.

Ernest Safeiator Ghost writer to the stars – Missing! I had hoped to include another poem by my mate Ernest this month but it looks like he has hit the turps early in the silly season. I suspect it’s a no-no in his DAMP manual to mix work and writing. I will need to get a pigeon on its way to him and try and squeeze one out of him for the next issue.

No Newsletter in January Taking another month off I am not going to issue a Newsletter next month. Indeed I am so busy of late I am going to go to quarterly issues next year. So next Newsletter is due release around the middle of March 2012

So you think you are SMS ready or even compliant with international standards. Or perhaps you simply want a better way of inducting new staff or re-enforcing safety management on a regular basis with your existing team. I encourage you to take a few moments to visit IATSI’s web site via the link below for more details. You will not regret it.

Above taken by me last year. Answers in next months issue.
