Australian Senate Committee inquiry calls for CASA overhaul
19 September 2008

An Australian Senate inquiry has produced a scathing report on the operations of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), calling for the Federal Government to install a management board to oversee the body and begin an immediate review of its funding.
The report by the Standing Committee on Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport found concerns with its management and expressed concern about the high level of staff turnover.
It has also noted that there is a significant difference of opinion between some CASA staff and senior management about the appropriate direction of the organisation, and it is says there is potential for this to undermine safety objectives. (The Age, Australian Senate)
