The accident with Agusta Bell-206 B3 RA-01630 helicopter occurred during an emergency landing due to an in-flight engine shutdown caused by complete fuel depletion.
Most probably, the following factors contributed to the accident:
- neglection of the en-route wind conditions when calculating fuel required for the flight;
- late decisions on finding an appropriate landing site and on landing;
- the PIC's piloting errors during the emergency landing while switching to the windmilling mode after the engine shutdown.
Based on the investigation results, appropriate safety recommendations have been developed.
