Episode 031 | Max Trescott | Cirrus Accident Case Studies

Today we’re going to pick apart a couple of Cirrus crashes, but not just any cirrus crashes. These are serious fatal accidents. In each case, the accident aircraft had a pilot plus 2 passengers.  And the reason Max and I are talking about these In particular, is because ATC played an interesting part in each one. Not necessarily a causal one, as we’ll see from the NTSB reports, but the interactions with ATC were key in one way or another in the events leading up to the occurrence. And that’s, of course, where our worlds overlap!
