On 12 August 2023, a homebuilt gyrocopter, registration G-2468, collided with terrain near Allworth, New South Wales, resulting in fatal injuries to the instructor pilot and serious injuries to the student pilot.
The NSW Police Force is investigating this accident on behalf of the state Coroner and has requested technical assistance from the ATSB in the examination of components from the gyrocopter. To facilitate this assistance, the ATSB initiated an external investigation under the provisions of the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.
Upon completion of the examination, results of that work will be supplied to the NSW Police Force, which is responsible for, and will administer, the release of any information from the ATSB’s examination. Any enquires relating to the matter should be directed to the NSW Police Force.
