Each year brings an opportunity to start over fresh, create new relationships and broaden our horizons for the future. The start of any new year is also an opportunity to reflect on previous performances with the intention of improvement and innovation. At the ALAEA your Executive tries to ensure that the trust, honesty and integrity that we expect of our members is reflected in our own performance. It is not an easy path as many parts of the industry we deal with simply don’t believe in safety and airworthiness like we do. Unfortunately, all too often, companies only pay lip service to what we hold dear. However we remain focussed on trying to ensure what they do is transparent and that they are kept accountable.
At the ALAEA negotiations for new Enterprise Agreements with various employers are ongoing or soon to commence. Employees at Panasonic have made the company’s first-ever enterprise agreement, concluding a process that had input from all members covered by the EA. CHC Helicopters are entering EA negotiations and our industrial officers have put a great deal of time and effort into ensuring that the members there are supported and it shows with a steady increase of new members every week. There is strength in solidarity and the LAMEs at CHC are stepping forward to meet that challenge. To our new members I say welcome aboard; it’s time to secure your future with a great EA result and you couldn’t be in better hands.
A new head of maintenance operations has taken over Tony Lowery’s role at Qantas; Sandra Nieuwenhuijzen. The ALAEA Executive is hopeful of creating a new relationship that will provide a better future for our members there. With the real possibility of new aircraft types on the horizon in the next five years we see exciting possibilities for all our members.

Aviation Safety Regulation Review 2014
Submission by the
Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association
The Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association (ALAEA) is the body representing Australia’s professional Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (LAMEs). The LAMEs critical role in certifying aircraft airworthiness is best summed up by their trade-marked mission statement “Guardians of Air Safety.”
The Association appreciates the opportunity to provide the perspective of Australia’s professional LAMEs to this critical Aviation Safety Regulation Review. Engineers support the review and believe the current administration of Australian aviation safety oversight, flawed evolution of the national regulatory framework and subsequent reduction in Australia’s preeminent safety reputation requires in–depth strategic review and reassessment.
In considering this submission the Association encourages the Aviation Safety Review Board to view licenced aviation personnel as part of an essential quality control mechanism that ensures safety remains at the centre of aviation decision making.
This independent role is becoming increasingly important as Australia’s “worlds’ best practice” aviation safety practices come under increasing commercial pressures to align with lower “global minimum standards” and “least safe cost” alternatives.
As a matter of process we canvassed our members opinions for the compilation of this submission and a summary of some of their responses are appended to this document.
