The Interstate Aviation Committee investigation team has completed the investigation of the accident with MD-50VG RA-0047G single-built motorized deltaplane owned by Technoservice Ltd occurred in the area of Volgograd town (RF) on 29.05.2017.

Most probably, the fatal accident with the MD-50VG VFSP weight-shift control aircraft was caused by PIC’s incapacitation that resulted in uncoordinated inputs onto the aircraft control system and a sideway turn of the aircraft towards the setting sun. 

A possible contributing factor of the accident is that the pilot have not passed the regular medical examinations at medical flight expert commission for the last four years. 

Appropriate safety recommendations based on the investigation results have been developed.
