We found this piece in the press recently, and are still trying to decipher what it means! We don’t speak Australian, so interpretation is left open. Answers on a postcard……………….:
"Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) have recently felt the need to defend it’s safety record, after charges that the airlines aren’t being regulated to required standards. CASA’s Director of Safety, Mick Toller quoted that accident rates have dropped significantly in the last 10 years and that Australia’s airlines are at least twice as safe as European and North American airlines.
He also responded to the media coverage by saying, "Let’s not treat aviation as a tall poppy, but support and encourage what is one of most successful, vibrant and important industries."
And they tell us that you can smoke poppies too!!
