The Investigation team of the Interstate Aviation Committee has completed the investigation of the accident with Beechcraft В300 RA-02778 aircraft operated by "Air Samara" JSC occurred on November 25, 2014. The accident with Beechcraft В300 RA-02778 aircraft operated by "Air Samara" Airlines was caused by missing the gear extension operation by the crew during the approach procedure that in conjunction with non-adherence to the "BEFORE LANDING", "LANDING" checklist and no response to terrain awareness warning system (in pull up MODE) resulted in gearless landing, aircraft overrun and its damage.
Missing of standard operations and no response to the warning alert most probably were caused by the significant increase of psycho-emotional tension of the crew members and critical tunneling caused by the detection of premature uncontrolled descent up to the below minima altitude specified by the approach pattern.
Premature descent became possible due to the insignificant proficiency level of the crew members (including the behavior of automatic flight mode and approaches of the crew resource management), non-adherence to standard operation procedures, lack of interaction and cross check as well as low flight training at B300 type aircraft.
Low level of flight operation management in the Airline did not allow to detect and eliminate specified irregularities.
The appropriate safety recommendations based on the investigation results were developed.
