ATSB issues recommendations following Lockhart River fatal Metro accident
24 January 2006

The Australian ATSB has released recommendations to CASA as part of the investigation into the Lockhart River fatal Swearingen Metro accident on 7 May 2005. ATSB recommendations have been issued to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to review current legislation and regulations: to seek to ensure that in an aircraft requiring a flight crew of two, both crewmembers are appropriately qualified to carry out an instrument approach; and to provide a mechanism for the phased introduction of autopilot equipment to all aircraft on the Australian civil aircraft register engaged on scheduled air transport operations.
