ATSB releases new investigation bulletin

The ATSB has just released a new aviation bulletin containing nine investigation reports. The Aviation Short Investigation Bulletin Issue 21 covers short, office-based investigations. 

The bulletin covers incidents, serious incidents and accidents involving turboprop and piston aircraft. No one was injured in any of the incidents; however, some of the aircraft were damaged.

Short investigations cover incidents and accidents where the associated factors are usually well-understood and do not require more detailed investigations. Nonetheless, each investigation has the potential to produce important Safety Messages for pilots, operators and others in the aviation industry. The investigations also help the ATSB identify statistics and trends in air safety.

The incidents covered in the report include:

  • Radio failure involving a Mitsubishi MU-2B, N64MD
  • An airspace-related event between a Bombardier DHC-8-402, VH-QOB and a Robinson R22, VH-HLY
  • An ATC procedural error involving a Piper PA-34, VH-FEJ
  • An aircraft proximity event between a Kawasaki BK117, VH-CSG and a Cessna 404, VH-XDA
  • A nose landing gear malfunction involving a Hawker Beechcraft B58, VH-OMS
  • An aircraft proximity event between a Piper Chieftain, VH-EDV and a Cessna 172 Hawk XP, VH-JQQ
  • An aircraft proximity event between a Mooney M20, VH-FRO and a Piper PA-31, VH-HJE
  • Two airspace-related events at Nagambie (ALA)
  • The collision with terrain of a Pietenpol Air Camper, VH-ARW
