On 2 December 2019, an Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat, recreational registration 24-4239, collided with terrain while conducting mustering 111 km SSW of Isisford, Queensland. The pilot sustained serious injuries.
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 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 7 February 2020.
Any enquiries relating to the accident investigations should be directed to RAAus at: www.raa.asn.au
