According to the Law Relating to the Investigation into Accidents and Incidents
Associated with the Operation of Civil Aircraft, all accidents and serious incidents
which occur during the operation of civil aircraft over 2000kg, rotorcraft, balloons
and airships operated by an air carrier must be investigated.
In the case of incidents involving aircraft up to 2000 kg which are not operated by
an air carrier, gliders, motor gliders, and other aircraft, an investigation is only
started by the Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accidents Investigation when new or
important findings for aviation security are to be expected. Due to this situation,
flight accidents increasingly have to be investigated by public prosecutors, the
police or insurance companies on their own.
