In Nov 05, an FU24-950 ZK-DZG was involved in an accident near Whangarei with the loss of two lives. This aircraft had been previously converted to turbine power in accordance with CAA STC number 98/21E/15 as a Walter Fletcher. After a period of investigation the CAA Safety Investigation Unit attributed the accident to the in-flight separation of the vertical fin. The Aircraft Certification Unit has carried out an engineering review to establish the airworthiness of the Fletcher aircraft vertical fin, from the perspectives of damage tolerance, structural design, and fatigue strength.
