Blackmac Posted October 11, 2009 Report Share Posted October 11, 2009 For your info: This was taken from AVCanada web page and as it relates to SMS, it will have an effect on every body in the "Air Taxi" which includes "Helicopter Industry" None of the newspapers in Canada are doing any investigative reporting on TCCA or their in- ability to carry out any reasonable function related to "Air Taxi" operators. This function will be debated as indicated in Parliament, shortly. Their has been nothing reported on this web page to date, and I am wondering WHY?? This is very important to this industry "helicopters" as to fixed wing. If you are not aware, the present SMS will become a regulation and gives the "Owners Club" the right to regulate themselves and you. PS: Truth be told the CBAA self inspecting "SMS" is a FARCE and is also a not a commercial operation. The original TC Audit is a take-off of ISO 9000 and was improved upon, "check list"over the years from the ORIGINAL RECOMMENDATION I MADE IN 1993. Quote: Notice of Motion October 6, 2009 Dennis Bevington Member of Parliament for Western Arctic "That the Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities engage in a study of Transport Canada’s enforcement of air safety regulations and implementation of safety management systems for the aviation industry, and report the results of the study to the House of Commons." This motion is expected to be debated on October 19th. If the motion passes, it will mean a chance for witnesses to make public presentations before the committee, including concerns and recommendations. Here is the current list of members for the Committee. Quote: Chair: Mervin C. Tweed Vice-Chairs: Mario Laframboise, Joseph Volpe Members: Dennis Bevington, Lois Brown, Sukh Dhaliwal, Roger Gaudet, Candice Hoeppner, Brian Jean, Gerard Kennedy, Colin Mayes, Jeffrey David Watson Links to member pages (and emails) here PLEASE! Let the Committee members know how you feel prior to the October 19th debate. Write to the press, and ask them to cover the story. This is your chance to make a difference! _________________ Stay safe. (DHC2)Widow SafeSkies.ca Dhc2widow.ca QuestforJustice.ca TIME TO BE HEARD GUYS/GALS OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES.
