Investigation team of the Interstate Aviation Committee has completed the investigation of the accident involving the CHE-26B2 RA-2642G private seaplane that occurred 25 km to the south-west of the aerodrome reference point of Khanty-Mansyisk Airport on 19.06.2016.

The accident involving the CHE-26B2 RA-2642G FVSP seaplane was caused by the pilot’s failure to maintain the climb profile after water takeoff with maximum allowable weight, which resulted in aircraft collision with tree tops and ground surface.

Possible factors contributing to the accident were: 

  • lack of professional training as a seaplane pilot;
  • failure to use engine takeoff mode; 
  • application of AI-92K-5 autogas not consistent with the one recommended by ROTAX company for 912ULS engines;
  • takeoff operation without flaps; 
  • piloting while inebriated corresponding to the average degree of alcoholic intoxication.
Appropriate safety recommendations based on the investigation results have been developed.
