Fatal Crash Severs Cessna Wing – Episode 109
The investigation is ongoing related to a Dec 2021 fatal crash involving a Cessna 208B and a powered glider. Both pilots were fatally injured in the accident that appears to have happened when the glider was higher than permitted altitude. The impact separated the plane’s right wing.
The Cessna was operated as a Part 135 cargo flight, and the powered paraglider was operated as a Part 103 personal flight. Greg says all indicators were that the Cessna pilot was doing routine cruise altitude operations and never saw the motor glider.
Greg, John and Todd examine the information released by the NTSB. They also talk about other incidents with pilots experiencing non-traditional aircraft creating hazards to aviation.
They call for all pilots to follow the rules of the aircraft they are flying to ensure their own safety as well as others in the sky.
