GFA SDR Report 2019.xls
This is a summary of Service Difficulty Reports submitted in 2019. The highly critical events will have been reported to CASA by GFA. If useful they will be reported to manufacturers. GFA also watches these for trends. We will issue ADs or Airworthiness Alerts if required to all registered gliders.
The main objective is to help the gliding community learn from events and improve reliability and safety.
All these reports come from Service Difficulty Reports submitted by email or submitted through the Safety Operations Airworthiness Reporting system (SOAR). The GFA will update this list every few months and will also publish summaries in Gliding Australia.
