The 53-year-old pilot was flying the ultralight Cheetah S200 when it slammed into the ride at a fairground in the township of Old Bar, near Taree, on October 1. There were four people on the ride, including Amber Arndell, 13, and her brother Jessie, nine. A preliminary investigation by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), made public yesterday, found the pilot twice attempted to land the plane. On the second landing, the pilot estimated that he would not be able to stop before the end of the airstrip, it said. As a result, the landing was aborted and a go-around was commenced. During the initial climb phase of the goaround, the aircraft collided with a ferris wheel. The report found the pilot had 79.5 hours flying time, of which 51.5 hours were logged in recreational aircraft. A flight crew certificate application form was com pleted as part of the pilots flight test and indicated that his flight training was conducted with a specificallynamed training facility, the report said. A search of the RA-Aus listing of approved flight training facilities current at the time of the pilots certificate application, revealed that no such training facility existed under that name. The ATSB report said the ongoing investigation would focus on an examination and assessment of the conduct of the pilots training and the issue of the pilots certificate. Public service saving THE Federal Government faces a backlash from Labor MPs, unions and key crossbenchers over its plan to cut public service costs and slash education spending to help achieve a slim budget surplus. But economists say the odds of another interest rate cut next week have shortened as a result of the plans. Yesterdays mid-year budget update forecast a $1.5 billion surplus for 2012/13, largely based on a 5 per cent cut to government agencies and departments, the scrapping of maths and science studies incentives and changes to the baby bonus. Overall, the government says it has identified $11.5 billion of new savings over four years to 2014/15, which will improve the budget bottom line by $6.8 billion. Treasurer Wayne Swan argues the reductions are needed to secure Australias fiscal future in the face of the economic storm clouds gathering in Europe that are already hurting confidence and government revenue. Australian Greens leader Bob Brown said the government should have looked at cutting some of the $12.5 billion in subsidies to the mining and energy sector, rather than making it a tougher Christmas for public servants. Opposition Leader Tony Abbott said the public service cuts mirrored Coalition policy, but he doubted that Labor could achieve its first budget surplus since 1989.
