The 22 March 2009 fatal crash of a Pilatus PC-12 at Butte, Montana was the result of a series of operational errors by the pilot, according to the US National Transportation Safety Board.
The NTSB coupled old-fashioned “kicking tin” with highly technical investigative assistance from safety agencies in Germany and Switzerland to solve a perplexing mystery–what caused a Pilatus PC-12 to crash while attempting to land at the airport in Butte, Mont., killing everyone on board the big turboprop single.
Investigators puzzled why so experienced a pilot, who had the respect of his colleagues, had managed to box himself into this catastrophic situation.
Our workshop offers a detailed, minute-by-minute insight in the anatomy of this accident. The NTSB believes it is important for pilots of turbine-powered aircraft to understand, how this accident unfolded, along with the missed opportunities the pilot had to avoid disaster.
