The ATSB has never been resourced to undertake investigations into every accident or incident that occurs. Rather, it is necessary for us to be strategic, investigating those accidents and incidents that are likely to yield safety improvements for transport operators and the travelling public.
Really Mr Dolan?

Here's some of the Aviation safety investigations & reports from the ATSB website:

- AO-2013-194 Wheels up landing involving a Rockwell 114, VH-AYH, Camden Airport, NSW on 27 October 2013 (Unknown type of operation according to the ATSB website - WTF??????)
- AO-2013-188 Loss of control on ground involving Air Tractor AT-502B, VH-FLH, near Deniliquin, NSW on 21 October 2013
- AO-2013-191 Wheels-up landing involving Beech Baron aircraft, VH-TLP at St. Helens aerodrome, Tas. 20 October 2013 (Private Operation)
- AO-2013-174 Collision with terrain involving Rand Robinson KR-2, VH-CTE, 14 km W Tumut Airport NSW on 5 October 2013 (Private Operation)
- AO-2013-158 Collision with terrain involving Lancair Legacy, VH-ALP at Geraldton Airport, WA on 18 September 2013 (General Aviation according to the ATSB)
- AO-2013-168 Total power loss involving a Piper PA-28-161, VH-CCQ, 9 km N of Cunnamulla Airport, QLD, 1 October 2013 (General Aviation according to the ATSB)
- AO-2013-190 Ground event involving DH-82 Tiger Moth, VH-RAY, 19 km NNE Coffs Harbour, NSW, 23 September 2013 (Private Operation)
- AO-2013-164 Total power loss involving a Piper PA-28-140, VH-RVJ, Kilcoy (ALA), Qld., 22 September 2013 (Private Operation)
- AO-2013-092 Total power loss involving a Mooney M20J, VH-NFP, at Canberra Airport, ACT, 2 June 2013 (Private Operation)

As far as I can see, the 'travelling public' wasn't involved in any of these events.
