Fatalities 2000 to 2012

ATSB: Aircraft accidents involving fatalities 01/01/2000- 01/01/2012

To begin with in the time frame 2000-2012 there was 180 fatal accidents recorded in the ATSB database. This was narrowed down by only including accidents that were referred to CASA for SRs (Safety Recommendations), or that CASA chose to get involved (made a submission) in.

I was also able to further decrease the medium for the obvious Darwin Award candidates and for accidents that blind freddy could tell were ‘pilot error’ (e.g. entering IMC).

However I have included some of the RAA investigations when they have asked for ATSB assistance.

Why?

Because I think it is interesting to note how little involvement CASA has in these areas.

Which leaves me with 62 accidents with fatalities to match up with coroner’s findings and CASA action/ineptitude.

By the way there is a couple in this lot that stood out for me.

In particular I found the Police 310 accident at Newman very damning of CASA, that maybe because I was in the area when that occurred and quite aware how they treated airwork operators/drivers. So if you have a pet accident that you want me to pay particular attention to, let me know!
