The Commission of the Interstate Aviation Committee completed the investigation of the accident with А36ТС «Bonanza» (FVSP) RA-2587G private aircraft occurred in the Stavropol Territory on December 13, 2015. 

Most probably the accident was caused by spatial disorientation during IFR flight in clouds resulted in unintentional aircraft intense drop entry and ground impact.

The accident was caused by combination of the following factors:

·           lack of PIC's IFR flight skills;

·           PIC's decision for departure in meteorological conditions not corresponding to VFR flight operation; 

·           non-compliance with FAR-128 on returning to the departure aerodrome under deterioration of meteorological conditions in flight below specified for VFR. 

·           icing in clouds hampering control of the aircraft not equipped for flight operations in icing conditions.

The appropriate safety recommendations based on the investigation results were developed.
