So a stable approach but at a somewhat higher speed than normal? At least it is to my eye. No PA sounds, no calling for "brace, brace", in other words the crew expected a "normal" precautionary...

People evacuating a fatal air crash will be in a trance, oblivious about their surroundings, there are plenty of examples where people just wander aimlessly. It is up to the blue light services to...

To me the fact that the pilot was in breach of his license (commercial, night) is no longer the issue, it will be undoubtedly listed as a breach contributing to the crash, possibly following the...

I think often posts are deleted due to legal reasons or rude/hurtful choice of words. Perhaps try to repost taking both into account?

The corner started only AFTER he accepted the flight, despite not being licensed to execute. Also Sala knew and texted he wanted to return in the evening. We are all told to avoid get-home-ites. By...

Is there a record of the CAA/FAA ever "reconstructing" (parts of) a logbook based on interviews of checking logbooks of planes, landing records to see if there was a pattern of "grey" flights? If so...

So McKay says it was not a cost sharing flight implying it was commercial. With a PPL at the wheel. Whoever hired Mr Ibbotson (Mr Henderson?) will have a lot to answer for.

Should EASA introduce "common purpose"?

On the thread of the Cardiff football player accident, there is a lot of talk of "grey commercial" flights, where posters suspect "cost sharing claims" are abused for flights against reward.

I agree with you. It's the same as EASA also introducing genuine common purpose for cost sharing. I've said so twice here, without a response.

We're all quick at pointing fingers when things go...

I am not so sure about the inflight break up. The sonar seemed to show the wings were still attached and he was pretty low, rather spatial disorientation and high speed impact with the sea, causing...

If it was a straightforward commercial flight the illegality is obvious, but I would suspect a cost sharing scheme will be claimed, making the flight "legal"

So a multitude of flights are "arranged". It can't be too difficult to find out what was the reward, who paid and who received, in which planes owned by whom etc. The big question is who will really...

On Facebook just now saw an advert for a Pilatus for dry hire, no mention of an AOC, G-reg. Renter to organise fuel and the pilot, insurance (which one) for the plane owner. Interesting blog also on...

To me there are 3 questions coming out of this sad saga:
1. What happened" technically" during the flight. Why was the flight at 5,000 feet in known icing conditions. Why no attempt to immediately...

Was the pilot confirmed to be commercial? Could be a friend taking him? Even if it was a Matrix, they could have easily climbed to 8000 or 9000?

Requesting a descent from 5000ft and contact lost at 2300 in a Malibu could suggest a non IFR qualified pilot? With the tops not much higher an IFR pilot would have first tried to outclimb any icing?
