GBA accident investigation
I have been asked by the factory, to post a little update on what they are doing with the accident that happened in florida. The factory has been all over this accident. They are actively investigating this accident for mechanical failure and will advise owners as soon as they know something. They have already sent out postings to the sparrowhawk owners on things to look for. They dont know yet what caused this accident but it was basically a list of things to go over in detail on every preflight. If you are an owner and didnt get this then email dan banks at GBA. I am told that the factory is also actively involved with the investigation with the NTSB and have dispatched reps to assist with the investigation. Thats about all i have, and ill add more when i know something more. till then do very good preflights and let the factory know if anything looks unusual. They really do want a good safe product and will do everything in their power to make that happen.
