Sisyphus Posted January 20, 2005 Report Share Posted January 20, 2005 Transport Canada has recently created the Canadian Air Executives Safety Network (CAESN). This is an adjunct to Safety Management Systems about which doubts of success have previously been expressed. This sort of thing must cost money. Rarely do executives participate in anything if at the very least their expenses are not paid. Perhaps they also receive a stipend of some sort. If this perception is erroneous, please correct it. The aviation industry at the corporate level is already well represented. There are lobby groups that represent both fixed and rotary wing operators. Could not the objectives of something like CAESN have been accomplished by working through these existing organizations? The rank and file of bush pilots, both fixed and rotary, does not have a voice. They continue to be marginalized if not ignored. Why does not TC create a Canadian Engineers and Pilots Safety Network? Is it not essential that their voices also be heard independent of their corporate masters? Are not engineers and pilots an important part if not the most important part of aviation safety. It becomes more and more difficult not to conclude that the grip that capitalism has on aviation safety is promoted and condoned by TC.
