A foolish pilot who chose to fly in marginal conditions, not having currency or permission to fly in clouds (VFR), or the good judgement to land or turn back, but blundered on. That and a stupid client with too much money too bigger ego and little brain who employed said pilot.

Shame about the kids who had no understanding of the risks, flying in bad weather and trusted idiots who should have known better.

Steve Jobs was a c**t of the greatest proportions and pioneered "track and trace" cell phone spying.

Know your pilot. Know his/her background, their qualifications and age. Maybe they won’t fly into a fking hill with your daughter on board.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74678399


And if you have lots of money and want to charter a helicopter to fly in marginal conditions, throw in an extra few bucks and book two certified VFR pilots and a modern, VFR certified aircraft, rather than a clunker.

Amazing how cheap rich people can be. Hairy but fortunately quick ending for all, plus an immediate place in history.

The pilot developed spatial disorientation in instrument conditions.

Except his flight was VFR, the (SINGLE) pilot was not current in IFR and aircraft was old, and not VFR certified due to maintenance issues. Cowboy outfit comes to mind.

Yee-haw!

I thought he knew his pilot and had used him for years and even requested him??
 Quoting: BawlmerRN


Cowboy outfit, cowboy pilot; what's not to like... Until the chips are down.

He could have afforded chartering a newer helicopter and two current, professionally certified VFR pilots, but that would have cost, and they would have taken an appropriate route avoiding the many unnecessary risks.
