ATSB releases new investigation bulletin

Aviation Short Investigation Bulletin - Issue 26

The ATSB has just released a new aviation bulletin containing 11 investigation reports. The Aviation Short Investigation Bulletin Issue 27 covers short, office-based investigations.

The bulletin covers incidents, serious incidents and accidents involving turboprop and piston aircraft, as well as helicopters.

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.

  • Aircraft separation issue involving an Ayres S2R, VH-WBK and an unmanned aerial vehicle
  • Ground proximity event between Dornier DO228, VH-VJN and a vehicle
