& # 39; Wild allegations & # 39 ;: Rex refers back to claims that its entire fleet must be founded on & # 39; safety anxiety & # 39; after a 100 kg propeller has fallen out of the sky

  • Australian Licensed Aircraft Engineers Association wrote a report on REX
  • The 17-page report contained allegations of & # 39; serious security breaches & # 39;
  • REX said that a & # 39; dissatisfied engineer and his union & # 39; had previously submitted the allegations
  • It said there was no security and referred to a CASA report in May

Regional Express (REX) has returned to & # 39; wild allegations & # 39; that the airline has a poor safety culture.

The answer comes after the Australian Licensed Aircraft Engineers Association (ALAEA) has submitted a report to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), which claimed to have personnel felt intimidated not to report defects, according to Nine.

The 17-page & # 39; s document alleged a & # 39; culture of fear & # 39; within the airline.

ALAEA asked the safety authority to remove REX's ability to service its own aircraft, a move that would effectively control the entire fleet.

The regional airline wrote in response to allegations they said were previously headed by a & # 39; dissatisfied engineer and his union & # 39; at the Fair Work Commission and CASA.

& # 39; Realizing that these unfounded allegations do not get any traction, some are now taking the despicable and cowardly approach to launch anonymous malicious attacks on Rex in the press & # 39; said Chief Operating Officer Neville Howell.

& # 39; Rex has been advised by the ALAEA that it is CASA that is behind the anonymous leaks, & # 39; Mr. Howell said.

The airline said it invited CASA's senior management on June 18 to discuss the claims, along with & # 39; the professional deficiencies of the dissatisfied engineer & # 39 ;.

REX added that it had a proven track for its safety management system and culture, before referring to part of a statement that it had received from CASA at the end of last month.

& # 39; I want to repeat my previous advice that the management and management of CASA have no current safety risks with Rex. … CASA is pleased that Rex is currently meeting all its obligations, & # 39; said Howell.

& # 39; We leave it to the safety authority to assess whether our safety culture is missing in any way. & # 39;

The document submitted to CASA alleges & # 39; serious security breaches & # 39; and describes a 2017 incident when a flight from Albury to Sydney saw a 100kg surveyor propeller removed from homes in southwest Sydney, according to The Daily Telegraph.

An investigation later identified a fatigue crack as the cause, according to the publication.

A spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: & # 39; CASA is investigating the allegations. We gave them to REX and they responded.

& # 39; All this information is one that is carefully considered.

& # 39; We thoroughly examine the allegations. They were reviewing the allegations and the response. & # 39;

A source told the publication that the alleged culture & # 39; manifestly dangerous & # 39; and that the staff does not report things.
