Daniel: I think one reason why clients hire me in these cases is because I
am a licensed pilot, that is part of my background, part of me. I've been
flying since the early '90s. I'm an instrument rated pilot. I fly routinely
not only for pleasure but also, for business around the state and I'm
familiar with the ins and outs, if you will, of aviation, what is required
in what can result in causing an aviation crash. There can be any number of
reasons why planes crash. The number one reason is a pilot error, the pilot
in command, the person flying the airplane may do something wrong, such as,
forget to turn on a fuel selector. He may lose control of the airplane. He
may not keep his airspeed appropriately high and have the airplanes stall
with him. There can be a variety of reasons why a pilot can lose control
and the plane will crash.
Another cause for an aviation crash, that we look into, is whether not the
air traffic controller acted appropriately. In some cases, not all cases
but in some cases, because most aviation accidents are weather related, the
air traffic controller will not properly steer the airplane and control the
airplane and sometimes will inadvertently vector, if you will, or steer the
airplane into bad weather and not properly advise the pilot of bad weather.
