On 3 March 2021, an AirBorne Edge XT-912 weight-shift microlight, registered T2-6160, broke up in flight and collided with terrain near Exmouth, Western Australia. Both occupants were fatally injured and the aircraft was destroyed.
The Sports Aviation Federation of Australia (SAFA) requested technical assistance from the ATSB in the examination of some failed components from the aircraft. To facilitate this assistance, the ATSB initiated an external investigation under the provisions of the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.
The ATSB has concluded the examination of the components, and provided the results of that work to SAFA on 22 July 2022.
SAFA is responsible for and will administer the release of any information from the accident investigation. Any enquiries relating to the matter should be directed to SAFA at www.safa.asn.au
