BERLIN – (AP) â ???? Swiss investigators said on Thursday that “high-risk flying” from the pilots of an old propeller plane, there was a crash in the Alps in 2018, in which all 20 people on board were killed

The 79-year-old Junkers Ju-52 of the local airline Ju-Air crashed in southeastern Switzerland on August 4, 2018

The aircraft, which was carrying 17 passengers and three crew members, crashed almost vertically into a mountain. It flew from Locarno in southern Switzerland back to its base near Zurich

The Swiss Transportation Safety Investigation Board said in its final report that “the pilots” high risk flying was a direct cause of the accidentâ ????

As they entered a narrow mountain valley, the flight crew steered the aircraft at a low altitude, with no alternative flight path and at a flight speed that was dangerously low for the circumstances ? Investigators said

When the aircraft encountered turbulence in the valley, the risky way of flying through this not uncommon turbulence resulted in pilots losing control of the aircraft they added the plane was flying too low to have enough room to recover

The report also found that the aircraft’s center of gravity was too far aft during the doomed flight A dangerous situation (which) was caused by insufficient flight preparation and errors in the Ju-Air softwareâ ????

It was said that the pilots got used to not complying with the rules for safe flight operations and taking high risks even with passengers on board, â ???? and that Ju-Air did not recognize the risks or prevented them from breaking the rules

In the report, the Swiss Federal Office for Civil Aviation was also accused of not having identified “numerous security problems” at Ju-Air or ineffective in dealing with them

That office revoked Ju-Air’s commercial flight license in March 2019 after investigating the risks of passenger flights using vintage cars, but said that if it met various conditions it could resume private flights for registered members

Ju-Air said in a statement Thursday that it will do everything it can to learn from the crashâ ????

It was said that it was “glad that the direct causes of the accident could be clearly shown” and analyzes the problem of a problem, with a focus on evaluations suggesting the problem only appeared 35 years before the crash, but has not caused any problems in the meantime and has not been noticed by Ju-Air or regulators, the company said / p>

It was added that issues that resulted in pilot risk behavior remaining undetected will be considered in future pilot selection, training and supervision
