Orlando Aviation Accident Attorney
National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators recently finished looking into a fiery aviation accident that killed four people in November 2010. In their report, the NTSB cited errors made by the pilot and a certified flight instructor that led to the crash at Palm Beach International Airport. The NTSB report stated that the Piper PA-44 Seminole bound for Melbourne from the Bahamas crashed nose first into the runway right after takeoff around 6:05 p.m. on November 11, 2010 and subsequently caught fire, killing all four people aboard. All the victims were either employed by or attended the Florida Institute of Technology’s FIT Aviation School near Melbourne.
Two people died recently in an Orlando-area plane accident when their aircraft crashed in Kissimmee on February 2. The Federal Aviation Administration reported that the plane crashed while on approach to land at Kissimmee Gateway Airport. A FAA spokesman said that the aircraft crashed on a nearby softball diamond and broke into several pieces, fatally injuring the pilot and his passenger. The airplane accident injured no one on the ground, and local officials reported that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is also investigating the crash.
