The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. The private pilot sustained serious injuries and the passenger sustained minor injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the cross-country flight. The flight departed North Las Vegas Airport, Las Vegas, Nevada, about 1500, Pacific daylight time, with a planned destination of Phoenix Goodyear Airport, Goodyear, Arizona.
