WASHINGTON, DC (BocaNewsNow.com) — The NTSB has issued its final report in the crash of the ExecuFlight crash in Akron, Ohio that left 7 Boca-area employees of PEBB dead. Also killed: the two pilots.
From the 137 page report:
“Contrary to Execuflight’s informal practice of the captain acting as pilot flying on flights carrying revenue passengers, the first officer was the pilot flying, and the captain was the pilot monitoring. While en route, the flight crew began preparing for the approach into AKR. Although company standard operating procedures (SOPs) specified that the pilot flying was to brief the approach, the captain agreed to the first officer’s request that the captain brief the approach. The ensuing approach briefing was unstructured, inconsistent, and incomplete, and the approach checklist was not completed. As a result, the captain and first officer did not have a shared understanding of how the approach was to be conducted.”
The plane crashed into an apartment building.
