'Our sponsors' are the pilots reading this. We ask, if you can, to help us in the production of this monthly summary of safety information and generally in our work of saving lives in UK GA. A subscription to the print magazine GASCo Flight Safety would show your support and reading it might save you from an unpleasant experience in the future. It's only £16 p.a. for a direct debit subscriber.

Thankfully, the AAIB bulletin for last month reported on no fatal accidents to UK GA. There is a Correspondence Report of the crash of a Cessna 414 light twin into a poultry shed at Enstone. Loss of power was experienced after take off and the AAIB comments, ... the most likely cause of the left engine stopping during the aborted take off, and the right engine stopping during the accident flight, was a disruption in the fuel supply between the fuel tanks and engine fuel control units. The pilot appears to have kept control all the way down to the poultry shed and he and his passenger suffered minor injuries.

The Board's airprox of the month concerns a Twin Comanche whose pilot was distracted by a side door springing open on climb out. There was a close encounter with a PA-28 in the circuit and the Board suggests that a PAN call could have alerted other traffic to the pilot's difficulties, however manageable. For the instructor commanding the PA-28 the suggestion is that the lesson is probably not to assume that other pilots are as competent, current or coping as well as he might.
