NTSB Cites Pilot Error, Safety Culture In Hawker Crash
The crew of a Hawker 700A jet that crashed in Akron, Ohio, a year ago showed a "disregard for safety," NTSB Chairman Christopher Hart said today, and the company where they worked also "fell short of their obligations." Both crew members and all seven passengers died when the jet crashed into an apartment building about 1.8 miles short of Runway 25 at Akron Fulton International Airport on Nov. 10, 2015. The crew worked for Execuflight, which operates charter flights under Part 135. The first officer flew the approach, the NTSB said, and failed to follow checklists.
