The foreign authority was the source of this information.

On December 8, 2016, about 1743 local time, a Cessna 350, N1222G, had the brakes catch fire during taxi following an aborted takeoff at Seletar Airport, Singapore. The owner/pilot was operating the airplane under the provisions of the Singapore Civil Aviation Regulations.

Preliminary information received from the government of Singapore indicated that the pilot had rejected the takeoff above 70 knots, and was taxiing back to the parking bay. During the taxi, the pilot felt as though he had lost brake authority. The airplane departed the taxiway center line, and started veering to the left. The pilot then applied the left brake as he was heading towards a parked Cessna 172. The airplane turned 180 degrees, and ended up taxiing towards another jet aircraft that was being towed into a parking bay opposite the Cessna 172. The pilot applied the left brake again, and came to a halt in the middle of Taxiway WB5. The main landing gears caught fire; the fire was subsequently extinguished. There was significant heat damage at the belly and the main landing gears of the airplane.

The accident is under the jurisdiction of and is being investigated by the Transport Safety Investigation Bureau (TSIB) of Singapore. As the State of Manufacture of the airplane and engines, the NTSB has designated a U.S. accredited representative to assist the TSIB in its investigation.
