Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Civil Aviation Safety Authority
|Date issued:||30 October 2007|
|Safety action status:||Closed - Action Taken|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The current configuration of some sports parachuting aircraft may not be conducive to occupant survivability in the event of an aircraft accident.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority direct that non-Australian Parachute Federation sports parachuting organisations conduct a review of their aircraft in order to identify and mitigate potential aircraft equipment-related crash survivability issues.

CASA wrote the Australian Skydiving Association on 11 December 2007 requesting that the organisation action this recommendation.
