ACCIDENT CASE STUDY

TRAPPED IN ICE
BY ASI STAFF

THIS LATEST INSTALLMENT IN THE POPULAR AOPA
AIR SAFETY INSTITUTE (ASI) ACCIDENT CASE
STUDY SERIES RECREATES THE EVENTS THAT LED
TO THE APRIL 19, 2018, ILL-FATED FLIGHT OF A
CIRRUS SR22 AIRCRAFT.

That day, the pilot and his passenger departed
from Lancaster Airport in Pennsylvania, bound
for a conference in Indiana. But a large swath
of hazardous icing conditions and mountain
obscuration in IMC proved to be no match for the
pilot or his airplane, which was not anti-icing or
deicing equipped. Sadly, the aircraft crashed when
the pilot of the iced-up aircraft likely experienced
spatial disorientation during an attempted
instrument approach in IMC. Trapped in Ice also
reviews a similar tragedy involving a Beechcraft
Bonanza that occurred only three days prior.
ASI highlights these accidents to remind us that
as pilots we have an obligation to use all available
weather information, especially when planning an
instrument flight in conditions favorable for inflight icing. In both tragedies, the pilots neglected
to do so, sealing their own fate and that of their

passengers. The Bonanza pilot failed to get an
official weather briefing and the Cirrus pilot failed
to receive an updated briefing. In addition, the
Cirrus pilot did not remove the Cirrus airframe
parachute pin-a preflight, before engine start,
and before takeoff checklist item to ensure
proper parachute deployment in the event of an
emergency like this one that-had he done so-
could have saved their lives.
Join the AOPA Air Safety Institute as it explores
lessons learned from these accidents. Doing so
may help us recognize and avoid a similar mistake.
Please, also share the video with your students-as
appropriate-and with pilots coming to you for a
flight review or instrument training.
Accident Case Study: Trapped in Ice uses FAA
ATC radio communication transcripts, NTSB
documentation, and video animation to recreate
the dynamics of the situation and track the
accident chain of events.
