The applicant, Mr Schott, applied for a review of the decision made by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to cancel his Flight Examiner Rating and associated endorsements pursuant to r.269(1) of the Civil Aviation Regulations 1988 (Cth). Mr Schott’s Flight Examiner Rating had been cancelled by CASA on the grounds that: Mr Schott had contravened various governing regulations on a number of occasions; Mr Schott had failed in his duty as the holder of a Flight Examiner Rating in a manner affecting the safe operation and navigation of aircraft; and Mr Schott was not a fit and proper person to be the holder of a Flight Examiner Rating. Following a nine day hearing, Deputy President Molloy rejected each of Mr Schott’s arguments and affirmed CASA’s decision.
Mark Eade appeared on behalf of CASA.
The judgment is published here.
