Aviation Short Investigations Bulletin: Issue 41

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has released its latest Bulletin of short investigations covering incidents involving regular passenger transport aircraft, light aircraft and helicopters.

Issue 41 of the Bulletin covers 13 safety investigations and highlights valuable safety lessons for pilots, operators and safety managers.  The Bulletin also highlights important safety messages for the broader aviation community, drawing on earlier ATSB investigations and research.

Released periodically, the Bulletin provides a summary of the less-complex factual investigation reports conducted by the ATSB. The results, based on information supplied by organisations or individuals involved in the occurrence, detail the facts behind the event, as well as any safety actions undertaken or identified.

Issue 41 of the Bulletin features 13 safety investigations.
