On 6 July 2019, a Brumby Aircraft Brumby 610 Evolution amateur-built aircraft, recreational registration 24-8552, collided with terrain near Leigh Creek, South Australia. The pilot and single passenger were fatally injured.
In response to this accident, Recreational Aviation Australia (RAAus) commenced an investigation. As part of its investigations, RAAus requested technical assistance from the ATSB to download flight data from a Dynon EFIS and Garmin GPS.
To protect the information supplied by RAAus to the ATSB and the ATSB's investigative work to assist RAAus, the ATSB initiated an investigation under the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.
The ATSB has concluded the examinations of the Garmin GPS and has provided the results of that work to RAAus on 6 February 2020. Further work may be undertaken by the ATSB on the Dynon EFIS at the discretion of RAAus and the ATSB.
Any enquiries relating to the accident investigations should be directed to RAAus at: www.raa.asn.au.
