I suspect that this is barely a VFR to IMC CFIT. The spot heights on the WAC in the area of the accident are 1000 ft to 1200 ft. The flight path up until the accident was tortuous. It has some...

What a report! I have been highly critical of recent ATSB reports, but this one seems to have done a very good, even handed job of going through all the issues. This accident highlights the severe...

I'm really surprised the Tiger Moth didn't feature more strongly. Its a delight that rewards gopod airmanship. It teaches rudder control. The J3 cub is best for the pure joy of messing around on a...

My guess is that AEM was being vectored until it was handed over from 135.7 to 122.4 maybe 5-10 min prior at which point I would presume they were give the "resume own navigation" call.

AEM was not on its flightplan route. It had clearly been vectored around the ML CTA. My guess is that they had descended to 4,000 ft for the 3900 ft VOR entry. I would assume they asked for descent...

CASA's approach to IFR ratings costs lives.
