Accident Number: GAA18CA508
Date & Time: 08/24/2018, 0930 PDT
Registration: N4085T
Aircraft: Robinson R22
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Loss of control in flight
Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional

The solo student helicopter pilot reported that he was practicing takeoffs and landings to a taxiway, and that he was preparing for a steep approach. The steep approach required more left pedal, which resulted in the helicopter being "out of trim (right yaw)". A tailwind accelerated the right yaw. He attempted to recover, but added "insufficient left pedal", the helicopter spun, and landed hard. The helicopter came to rest on the left side.

The helicopter sustained substantial damage to the windshield, fuselage, and tailboom.

The student pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the helicopter that would have precluded normal operation.

The automated weather observation station located on the airport reported that, about 34 minutes before the accident, the wind was from 290° at 3 knots. The same automated station reported that, about 26 minutes after the accident, the wind was from 030° at 6 knots. The helicopter was approaching a taxiway parallel to runway 17.

Federal Aviation Administration's Helicopter Flying Handbook, FAA-H-8083-21A, contains a section titled "Weathercock Stability" which stated:

In this region, the helicopter attempts to weathervane, or weathercock, its nose into the relative wind. Unless a resisting pedal input is made, the helicopter starts a slow, uncommanded turn either to the right or left, depending upon the wind direction. If the pilot allows a right yaw rate to develop and the tail of the helicopter moves into this region, the yaw rate can accelerate rapidly. In order to avoid the onset of LTE in this downwind condition, it is imperative to maintain positive control of the yaw rate and devote full attention to flying the helicopter.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

The pilot reported that he departed with 26 gallons of fuel. He added that, about 3.5 hours enroute, he asked flight following where the closest airports were because he had become concerned he was "near the fuel limit". During their exchange, the engine lost power. He declared an emergency, rocked the wings, applied full rich mixture, and restarted the engine, "which worked 15 seconds or less". During the emergency approach, he landed on a road. He landed near the end of the road, the airplane bounced, veered to the left, impacted a pipe, and the nose landing gear collapsed.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the engine mount.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

YoYo Helicopters 232, I-C881: Fatal accident occurred July 13, 2018 in Musile del Piave, Italy



NTSB Identification: ERA18WA207
14 CFR Non-U.S., Non-Commercial
Accident occurred Friday, July 13, 2018 in Musile del Piave, Italy
Aircraft: Aero Eli Servizi Yo-Yo 222, registration:
Injuries: 1 Fatal.

The foreign authority was the source of this information.


The government of Italy has notified the NTSB of an accident involving a Aero Eli Servizi Yo-Yo 222 helicopter that occurred on July 13, 2018. The NTSB has appointed a U.S. Accredited Representative to assist the government of Italy's investigation under the provisions of ICAO Annex 13.


All investigative information will be released by the government of Italy.





MUSILE DI PIAVE. Si schianta con un elicottero biposto dopo un breve volo sui cieli di Caposile, frazione di Musile di Piave.

Così è morto ieri sera intorno alle 19 Eros Antoniazzi, 40enne di Motta di Livenza, titolare con le sorelle della omonima ditta di autobus e trasporti della cittadina in provincia di Treviso. Antoniazzi si era da poco alzato in volo dal club di Caposile “Papere Vagabonde” di cui faceva parte. 

Il piccolo velivolo YoYo, elicottero agile e facile da manovrare, era decollato dal campo di volo nella frazione di Musile e il motore è andato improvvisamente su di giri durante una manovra.

Antoniazzi ha perso il controllo dopo che si è spezzata la coda dell’elicottero monoposto che ha perso subito quota e poi è precipitato, avvolgendosi su se stesse e piombando a terra in mezzo a un campo di mais. Il 40enne è morto nel tremendo impatto con il suolo, dopo che si è verificato anche un principio di incendio.
I residenti hanno raccontato di aver visto il velivolo che si attorcigliava verso il suolo. Dal club sono accorsi subito i primi soccorritori che non hanno potuto fare nulla per salvarlo. Ormai era già morto per le gravissime lezioni riportate, schiacciato nella carcassa dell’elicottero. Era già spirato sul colpo dopo l’impatto con il suolo.

Sul posto, i vigili del fuoco di San Donà e Jesolo, con l’elicottero Drago 81 del reparto Volo di Venezia che ha seguito dall’alto le operazioni di soccorso. I carabinieri di San Donà sono arrivati subito con il comandante della compagnia, il capitano Dario Russo. Dal club di Caposile il presidente Erick Koustatsher e Donatella Ricci, visibilmente sconvolti, sono accorsi assieme ad altri iscritti che frequentano l’aviosuperficie.

Per Antoniazzi, che da tempo frequentava il campo di volo ed era considerato uno dei più esperti, il destino si era già compiuto tragicamente. Sono state raccolte le prime testimonianze da parte dei militari dell’Arma, mentre il velivolo è stato posto sotto sequestro a disposizione dell’autorità giudiziaria. A Caposile, i mezzi della carrozzeria Piave hanno rimosso dal campo di mais la carcassa dell’elicottero Yo Yo di Antoniazzi, completamente distrutta.

Antoniazzi avrebbe compiuto 41 anni il 23 di luglio. Fidanzato con una donna di Motta di Livenza, Luciana, con la quale viveva a Motta di Livenza aveva molti amici e conoscenti anche da queste parti proprio grazie alla frequentazione del club di Caposile. Era un appassionato di volo e di paracadutismo. Un uomo che amava lo sport e la vita all’aria aperta e anche gli sport estremi. Quando aveva un po’ di tempo libero partiva da Motta per raggiungere il club di Caposile. Così aveva fatto ieri pomeriggio, per farsi un giro sul suo piccolo elicottero che conosceva bene e non aveva mai destato particolari problemi. Forse qualcosa è andata storta nelle manovre eseguite poco dopo il decollo e Antoniazzi è stato colto dal panico anche perché si è spezzata la parte posteriore all’improvviso.

L’ultima tragedia che ha coinvolto un unltraleggero risale al 2016 quando ha perso la vita un 77enne di Montebelluna che era partito da Treviso e si era perso nelle nebbie sui cieli di Musile. Nel 2012 era morto anche uno jesolano, Franco Borin assieme a un giovane amico, Simone Conte di Povegliano, dopo un volo sui cieli di Caposile dall’aviosuperficie.

Il presidente e i referenti del club ieri, dopo l’incidente aereo, non hanno voluto commentare e hanno chiesto rispetto e silenzio per la tragedia che ha nuovamente sconvolto il sodalizio. Erano tutti molto legati ad Antoniazzi e hanno voluto chiudere i cancelli dell’aereoclub dopo l’incidente. —

Ayres S2R-T34 Thrush, F-GOKZ: Fatal accident occurred August 08, 2018 in Diatar, Mauritania

NTSB Identification: WPR18WA235
14 CFR Non-U.S., Commercial
Accident occurred Wednesday, August 08, 2018 in Diatar, Mauritania
Aircraft: AYRES S2R, registration:
Injuries: 1 Fatal.

The foreign authority was the source of this information.


On August 8, 2018, at an unknown time, an Ayres S2R T34 airplane, F-GOKZ, impacted terrain during an agricultural operation near Diatar, Mauritania. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was being operated under the pertinent civil regulations of the government of Mauritania. The local flight originated from Podor Airport (GOSP), Podor, Senegal.


The accident investigation was delegated by the Islamic Republic of Mauritania and is under the jurisdiction and control of the French government. This report is for information purposes only and contains only information released by or obtained from the French government. Further information pertaining to this accident may be obtained from:

Un aéronef civil immatriculé F-GOKZ, propriété de la compagnie francaise MID AIR, s’est écrasé, mercredi, en territoire mauritanien, à hauteur de Diatar Sénégal, rapporte à Dakarecho.com, l’antenne de Saint-Louis de la DIRPA.

L’incident survenu en territoire mauritanien a provoqué la mort du pilote de l’aéronef, un ressortissant français du nom de Jean Lucien Boris ».

« L’avion avait décollé de l’Ile à Morphil vers 5 heures 45 ce matin, pour pulvériser des oiseaux granivores. Au retour, c’est à 5 Km à l’est de Podor où l’appareil a eu des problèmes près du village de Diatar (département de Podor).

Le climat était très favorable depuis quelques jours. Il n’y a pas de nuage ni de poussière. Le temps est excellent. Ce ne sont pas les conditions météorologiques. Cela pourrait être la conséquence de défaillances mécaniques comme entre autres, un manque de kérosène. Mais, en tout cas, ce n’est pas à cause des effets de la météo.

Ce qui est sûr, c’est qu’il n’y avait qu’une seule personne à bord. C’est le pilote, de nationalité française. Il n’a pas survécu », déclare le responsable de l’aérodrome de Podor, Amadou Tidiane Ba

Affrêté par la direction de la protection des végétaux (DPV), en partenariat avec Air Technical services de Saint-Louis, l’aéronef avait quitté Podor à 5h47mn pour rallier la localité de Wallaldé pour une mission de lutte anti-aviaire dans la zone des cultures, souligne la source militaire. 

Seule victime de l’accident, le pilote français mort dans le crash d’avion survenu ce mercredi à Podor, devait boucler ce jour la mission qui lui était confiée : détruire les nids des oiseaux granivores qui font des ravages dans les champs.

Parti à l’aube, seul à bord de son appareil, le pilote Français a vu celui-ci s’écraser au retour.

C’était un pilote « très expérimenté qui a participé à beaucoup d’activités similaires dans la sous-région ». Ce, à bord de son avion, un Trush Commander, spécialisé en agriculture et immatriculé en France. Propriété de la société de la victime.

Le pilote français travaillait pour le compte de la Direction de la protection des végétaux (Dpv), de la Saed (Société nationales d’aménagement et d’exploitation des terres) et du Comité de lutte anti-aviaire. « Dans lutte contre les oiseaux granivores, il permettait d’agir directement sur les sites de dortoirs », renseigne une de nos sources.

La dépouille mortelle du pilote décédé sur le coup a été acheminée à Rosso Mauritanie.

L’appareil, Ayres S-2R T34 le Thrush Commander, est un avion d’épandage agricole américain qui a été produit à plus de 2 000 exemplaires par divers constructeurs successifs.

C’est un des appareils les plus répandus de sa catégorie dans le monde, puisqu’on le trouve en service dans plus de 70 pays.
