Notice given 2 February 2006

1572  Senator Allison: To ask the Minister representing the Minister for Transport and Regional Services—

(1) Can the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) provide detailed justification, in terms of cost recovery, for each of its fees listed on the website.

(2) Has an evaluation been made of the impact of these fees on trends in general aviation activity in Australia; if so, can a copy be provided; if not, why not.

(3) How many Aviation Security Identity Card (ASIC) applications by general aviation pilots have been rejected.

(4) What is the security or other rationale behind general aviation operators requiring three separate photo identifications (IDs) (for example, a Flight Crew Licence, Aviation Identification (AVID) and ASIC) all of which contain the same information.

(5) What is the security rationale behind general aviation pilots requiring photo IDs but not passengers.

(6) What has been the cost of the security measures, announced in 2005, at each remote airfield.

(7) Is the work complete; if not, what has yet to be done.

(8) What was done at each of these locations and how does it improve security.

(9) Are ASICs required to be produced at all remote airfields; if not, at which airfields are they not required and why.
