On 21 December 2007, an Evektor Sportstar, Recreational/ Light Sport Aircraft registration 24-4148 was involved in a fatal accident 12 km SE of Bindoon ALA. Recreational Aviation Australia (RA-Aus) staff commenced an investigation into the occurrence. Three Global Positioning System (GPS) units were recovered from the accident site.

On 9 April 2008, RA-Aus requested technical assistance from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) to recover the data from the GPS units. No analysis of the data by the ATSB was sought by RA-Aus. To protect the information supplied by RA-Aus and the investigative work undertaken to assist RA-Aus, the ATSB initiated an investigation under the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

Data was successfully recovered from all three GPS units in May 2008 by ATSB Technical Analysis staff and subsequently provided to RA-Aus investigators.



Released in accordance with section 25 of the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.
