Synthetic Greenhouse Gas (SGG) awareness training
As most people would be aware before LAMEs and AMEs are able to undertake any maintenance on aircraft fire extinguishing systems that contain SGG they are required to have completed SGG awareness training in accordance with regulation 302(1) of the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995. The training outcome required is to achieved competence in PRMPFES43A, CPPFES2043A or an equivalent assessment outcome at a CASA approved MTO or an RTO.
The Fire Protection Association Australia are currently offering a CD self-study version of the unit CPPFES2043A Prevent ozone depleting substance and synthetic greenhouse gas emissions which they are offering for $150 for those enrolled prior to 31 December 2013. Following this they intend to have an online version available at a rate equal to or lower than this price. After 1 January 2014 there will be a price increase for the CD version.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. With their “Mo’s” men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. As an independent global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
For several years now one of our Perth Members, Dave "Biffa" Beattie has encouraged his colleagues to either participate or contribute to Movember. Two years ago we co-ordinated the effort and have had two successful years of getting members to join in.
With November closing in on us, once again we are asking members, their families and friends to participate in this great charity. You can join in team ALAEA MoBros by going to the Movember Australia website - http://au.movember.com/?home and clicking on either the DONATE or SIGN UP tabs, and search for us - ALAEA MOBROS.
This is a GREAT fundraiser for men's health and donations above $2.00 are tax deductable!

The dust has settled after the Federal Election and, as predicted, the Liberal National Coalition with Tony Abbot at the helm has won a conclusive victory in the House of Representatives. However the Senate is another story and may be the cause of more than one headache. For all of us in the aviation industry it will be an interesting wait as we find out if Warren Truss's aviation plan will come to fruition. Hopefully the ALAEA can impress on him our own key aviation points especially:
• the importance of creating a real future for the young people coming into our industry;
• allowing access to protected air routes only to those airlines that employ Australians;
• keeping Qantas Australian owned; and
• making CASA effective.
