The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority educate industry on procedures and techniques that may maximise the chances of survival of a ditching event. Part of that education program should include the development of formal guidance material of the type contained in the UK CAA General Aviation Safety Senses leaflet 21A "Ditching".

Response text:

I refer to Aviation Safety Recommendation R20010258 which arose from the accident of 31 May 2000 involving a Piper PA31-350 Chieftain aircraft, VH-MZK.

In its reply of 6 March 2002, the Authority advised that it would develop a Civil Aviation Advisory Publication (CAAP) to educate the aviation industry on procedures and techniques that may maximise the chances of survival of a ditching event. CAAP 253-1(0), Ditching, was published in April 2003.

The CAAP can be found at http://www.casa.gov.au/download/CAAPs/ops/253-1.pdf

The Authority believes that the publication of the CAAP closes its actions on this Recommendation.
