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.

Yours faithfully,

Wendy Kavanagh
Kavanagh Balloons
