ATSB releases new investigation bulletin

Aviation Short Investigation Bulletin - Issue 30

The ATSB has just released a new aviation bulletin containing 12 investigation reports. The Aviation Short Investigation Bulletin Issue 30 covers short, office-based investigations.

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

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.
