Information Request – SAFE or UNSAFE?  YES or NO?  Which is it?

Dear Mr Carmody,

For the past two years, I have written to CASA on numerous occasions seeking the regulator to provide a clear unequivocal YES or NO answer to a very simple question;

Is it safe for an Australian private pilot to fly an Australian registered aircraft with an MTOW of 600kgs in Australian airspace on a self-certification private drivers licence medical?

 Could CASA please provide a YES or NO answer to the above?

Thank you for your time and I eagerly await the answer.

Yours Sincerely,

BENJAMIN MORGAN
