ATSB releases new investigation bulletin

Aviation Short Investigation Bulletin - Issue 29

The ATSB has just released a new aviation bulletin containing 10 investigation reports. The Aviation Short Investigation Bulletin Issue 29 covers short, office-based investigations.

The bulletin covers incidents, serious incidents and accidents involving 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.

Issue 29 of the Bulletin features 10 safety investigations:

Piston aircraft

  • Loss of control during landing involving Cessna 182
  • Fuel starvation and forced landing, involving PA-31
  • Runway excursion involving a Beech A36
