From what I read the people onboard were all family and friends, no mention of a second pilot, also papers state that there were no distress calls or reports of failure.
Am no pilot myself but could it be as simple as for instance pilot incapacitated, stroke or something along the line? Happens daily on the roads everywhere.
Just a supposition.

The aircraft that crashed is from around 2015.
No FADEC at that time yet.

But I completely agree - the aircraft is coming down like a rocket - definitely out of control.

Reminds me rather of that Malibu accident in Switzerland a couple of years ago...

Blimey, nearly seven...

Unlike early model PC-12s, the accident aircraft was fitted with an LDR (Lightweight Data Recorder), likely this one.

High performance turbine singles seem to be the new upmarket 'Doctor Killers'. People with plenty of money but too little training and not enough hours killing themselves and their families.

Out of interest, how much ice can an airframe accumulate in 4 minutes of flight ?
