Common sense is not in the SACAA's vocabulary. It's all about closed minded safety safety safety #-o
SS, I think a correction is required. The CAA,s stated reasons might be safety, safety as you say but the real reason is mindless bureaucracy, total over control and the destruction of the industry they are supposed to support and encourage to grow.
Just think about it, a short 25 years ago CAA had about 76 employees and now they have about 11 times that many and everything takes much longer to do. Is that building the industry? Is that improving safety? Is that increasing mindless bureaucracy? You decide.
You and I are 100% on the same page.
The regulations they have are stupendous. The regulations will result in no accidents, well done CAA, because nobody can fly

Don't know where people get this from? If you read the preamble to their enabling act it, effectively, is really only about safety :?

Please note for the folk that have difficulty with English Comprehension - I'm only talking about this one aspect, ie, CAA for safety or meant to "grow" industry, I am NOT taking sides in the efficiency vs inefficiency debate NOR am I defending what CAA have done or might do - 8-[
