AAIB releases preliminary report on investigation into plane crash in Elmina

On the official portal of the Malaysian Ministry of Transport accessed in Kuala Lumpur, Friday, stated that the pilot of the aircraft with registration number N28JV belonging to Koperasi Amanah Pelaburan Berhad which was operated by Jet Valet Sdn Bhd was licensed and qualified to fly in accordance with existing regulations.

The aircraft has a valid airworthiness certificate and has been maintained in accordance with regulations.

The incident occurred during the day with clear visibility and good meteorological conditions. There was no evidence of disability or physiological factors affecting the flight crew’s performance.

In a written cause of death report, the official post-mortem report is pending at the time the initial report is issued. However, evidence suggests that neither pilot experienced cockpit incapacity.

Therefore, the hypothesis that medical causes and factors contributed to the accident can be ruled out.

Initial reports also said the crash could not be avoided due to the magnitude of the post-crash forces and fire.

However, reports on causes or factors that contributed to the occurrence of new accidents will be included in the final report. Likewise, an analysis of the occurrence of accidents and new safety recommendations will be presented in the final report.

Notes in the initial report said initial analysis of recovered Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) recordings had provided important clues to uncovering the cause of the crash, with a focus on the aircraft’s flight control system.

The results of the pending inspection and examination of related aircraft parts and components at the NTSB and OEM Laboratories are required to provide collaborative and/or conclusive evidence in determining the cause of the accident.

The Beechcraft Model 390 aircraft with registration number N28JV crashed in Shah Alam, killing eight people on board the ill-fated aircraft, as well as two road users who were passing by.
