ABAA Type Certificate Data Sheet issued for VH HTR Amateur built aircraft
From: Wendy Kavanagh
Dear Civil Aviation Safety Authority,
VH HTR is listed on the CASA website as a amateur-built aircraft, Model C-65 Serial No.01.
This is a 65,000 cu.ft. hot air balloon and the owner has used a Kavanagh Balloons model designation C-65 and the same color scheme and registration as the original balloon built by Kavanagh Balloons, but since deregistered.
Concern: This amateur balloon has been built using old balloon panels as a template and the original load tapes.
We consider this to be a breach of Kavanagh Balloons' rights as a Manufacturer under a Production Certificate as the visual impression gained is that this amateur re-build is in fact a Kavanagh Balloon.
