Manual Search, for six vital mintues, led to loss of control, and loss of YSR.


It is negligence, or lack of prepairedness, on the part pilots.Strange, they had to search for a manual for six long vital minutes, in a n emergency, in such a sophisticated helicopter. Was it shear bad luck or was it a gross failure to be efficient as pilots. The fact is a leader of the masses and a VVIP lost. This raises questions on the safty of all our VVIP's who matter so much to the nation and its people.

 

 Pilot error cause of YSR chopper crash: probe report 

New Delhi, Jan 20 (PTI) The helicopter crash which claimed the life of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S R Reddy was caused by pilots’ error who lost the chopper’s control and were engrossed for vital six minutes trying to locate a flight manual, the probe report said today.

The report, submitted to the government by the four- member inquiry committee, said the “probable” cause of the accident was that it “occurred due to loss of control resulting in uncontrolled descent in the terrain at a very high rate of descent due to entry into severe down draught”.

The crew flew the helicopter under the instrument flying condition even though their flight plan was cleared for Visual Flight Rules (VFR), it said. The crew noticed a snag and “was engrossed for vital six minutes before the impact in searching for the relevant checklist from the Flight Manual”.
