NTSB’s Probable Cause Statement


We looked at details of the five accidents summarized above for this article. There are others we could have chosen, with different lessons. One thing that jumped out at us: Simple singles werent well-represented. Is that because a simple single, say, a Cessna 172, is more maneuverable and better suited to completing a circling approach than an Aerostar? Possibly. But its also possible pilots dont fly simple singles into conditions low enough to require circling as often as they do other airplanes.
