One does wonder how such a person could actually qualify for an ASIC let alone the consideration that he should have lost his licence under the fit and proper person provisions?
1) That's not a problem with "my" logic. If HIP has a particular event in mind he ought to say so, rather than make ridiculous blanket statements like "No-one with a criminal record should be able to get an ASIC!" If he had his way, I reckon a good 25% of the pilots in Australia would not be able to get an ASIC, due to drink driving or excessive speeding offences.
2) The "fit and proper person" issue has absolutely nothing to do with an ASIC and is therefore irrelevant in this thread.
Face it: this is Australia. - Half the country has a criminal record...
What was that about making Blanket Statements...?
