Completion of the draft investigation report has been delayed due to the investigator-in-charge being deployed in support of another occurrence investigation.

 

Updated 7 December 2016

ATSB examination of the operator’s landing performance requirements and procedures continues. Together with the effect of the Christmas/New Year period, this is anticipated to delay the release of the draft investigation report to directly involved parties until February 2017.

 

Updated: 26 October 2016

Commencement of the draft investigation report has begun. However, completion of the report has been delayed by competing priorities, workload of the investigation team, and examination of additional information recently received from the operator regarding landing performance requirements. The draft report is now anticipated for release to directly involved parties (DIP) for comment in January 2017. Feedback from those parties over the 28-day DIP period on the factual accuracy of the draft report will be considered for inclusion in the final report.
