Owatonna Airport Accident 2008: Fatigue was a contributing factor

Pilot error was to blame for the crash of a Hawker Beechcraft 125-800A in July 2008, the NTSB said on Tuesday (15th march). The airplane, operated by East Coast Jets, crashed when the crew attempted a go-around after landing on a wet runway at Owatonna Degner Regional Airport, in Minnesota. Contributing factors were poor crew coordination and lack of cockpit discipline; fatigue, which likely impaired both pilots’ performance; and the FAA’s failure to require crew resource management training and standard operating procedures…

The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of this accident was the captain鈥檚 decision to attempt a go-around late in the landing roll with insufficient runway remaining. Contributing to the accident were (1) the pilots鈥 poor crew coordination and lack of cockpit discipline; (2) fatigue, which likely impaired both pilots鈥 performance; and (3) the failure of the Federal Aviation Administration to require crew resource management training and standard operating procedures for Part 135 operators.
