Status: Completed
Investigation completed


The Safety Investigation Board (SIB) of the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority is investigating an engine failure and runway excursion involving a Beechcraft 1900D aircraft, registered AP-BII that occurred on 18 March 2016. On 4 August 2016, the SIB requested the appointment of an ATSB investigator as accredited representative to the SIB investigation in accordance with clause 5.23 of Annex 13 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation.

The SIB requested the ATSB accredited representative to oversight a technical examination of the aircraft’s engine at a maintenance facility in Brisbane, Queensland. To facilitate this support, the ATSB initiated an investigation under the Australian Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

On 6 January 2017, the SIB advised the ATSB that, as all investigation work within Australia had now been completed, ATSB assistance was no longer required.

The SIB is responsible for, and will administer the release of the final investigation report into the occurrence involving AP-BII. Any enquiries regarding the SIB investigation should, in the first instance, be directed to the:
