Co-pilot Renato Marchese Crashes Corporate Jet Into Akron Apartment Building

Co-pilot Renato Marchese Crashes Corporate Jet Into Akron Apartment Building --- ===

Nov. 10, 2015 Co-pilot Renato Marchese Crashes Corporate Jet Into Akron Apartment Building  All nine people aboard a Hawker H25 business jet are killed after the plane crashes into an apartment complex. Despite rules that the captain should be flying with passengers, Co-pilot Renato Marchese rather than  Capt. Oscar Chavez is allowed to land the plane. It was rainy and the previous pilot warned the clouds were at the minimum altitude for the airport. The pilot continually warns the co-pilot in control that they are too slow and too low. The NTSB investigation concluded the co-pilot improperly set the aircraft's flaps and failed to maintain a proper speed, causing the plane to plunge into an apartment building, killing all nine people on board.  Both Chavez and Marchese skipped a pre-landing checklist or calling out altitudes on the approach, and Chavez, who was recorded telling Marchese the aircraft might stall, should have assumed control of the plane when he realized it could crash. Marchese's previous employer fired him about nine months before the crash.

Execuflight Flight 1526[2] was a chartered Raytheon Hawker 700 which departed Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport and crashed 36 minutes later while on approach to landing, into an Akron, Ohio apartment complex shortly before 3:00 pm (15:00) EST in rainy weather. The aircraft was on final approach to runway 25 at Akron Fulton International Airport, some 3,200 metres (10,500 ft) downcourse.[3] Witnesses reported hearing a loud explosion, and seeing smoke/flames as the crash occurred. All nine occupants of the aircraft, including both pilots, were killed in the crash.[4] Akron police units were the first to report to the scene, followed shortly by firefighters and the Ohio State Highway Patrol. The National Transportation Safety Board dispatched an incident team to the site of the crash, and will assume leadership in the investigation.

The flight originated as flight EFT 1521 from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airporton Monday, November 9, 2015, leaving at about 7 a.m. and flying to St. Paul Downtown Airport in St. Paul, Minnesota; the second leg was was flight EFT 1522 to Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois, and a third leg was flight EFT 1523 to Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Missouri, before finishing the day as flight EFT 1524 about 7.50 p.m. at the Cincinnati Municipal Airport (Lunken Field). On Tuesday, the aircraft made a refueling stop as the fifth leg flight EFT 1525 to Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport before embarking at 2:13 p.m on the sixth leg flight EFT 1526, leaving at 2.13 p.m. for a 36-minute journey to Akron Fulton International Airport.[3][5]

Aircraft


Actual N237WR involved in the crash in Akron, Ohio
The aircraft, registration number N237WR, was a 1979-built twin-engine corporate jet.[5] It has several designations, owing to its complicated construction history, with Raytheon Hawker 700 being the latest, but originally British Aerospace 125-700, and is certified as an HS 125-700A in the FAARegister.[1][6]

Crash

The aircraft impacted the ground on final approach to runway 25 of Akron Fulton International Airport, in poor weather, reportedly clipping power utility lines first and then crashing into an unoccupied apartment building, coming to rest in a paved embankment directly behind it. The fuselage reportedly (NTSB) remained intact but was badly burnt. No one was injured on the ground, although 12 families were displaced. But the accident is still the largest aircrash fatality for the city of Akron, Ohio and the surrounding Summit County.[7][8]

Investigation

National Transportation Safety Board is overseeing the investigation. The nearby forensic scientists of Mercyhurst Universitylocated in Erie, Pennsylvania have been asked to assist in combing the wreckage to effect positive identification of the victims, all presumably contained within the burned out fuselage. Accoringly, a team from the university's forensic anthropology department, including faculty and graduate students, has joined the investigation on the ground.[9]
On 11 November, investigators said that a pilot who landed at a near by airport reported not hearing any distress calls from the jet while on the same frequency.[10]

Passengers

All seven passengers died. They were all partners, executives or employees of Pebb Enterprises, a Boca Raton, Florida real-estateholding company . The aircraft had been booked by the group for a three-day prospecting trip.[5]

Marchese's previous employer fired him about nine months before the crash. Execuflight owner Augusto Lewkowicz told investigators that he hired Marchese based on a recommendation from another pilot and didn't dig into his past.

Co-pilot Renato Marchese was in command of the Hawker 127-700 that crashedNov. 10, 2015, into an Ellet neighborhood. The corporate jet  Co-pilot Renato Marchese was in command of the Hawker 127-700 that crashed Nov. 10, 2015, into an Ellet neighborhood. The corporate jet carried the two crew members and seven employees of Pebb Enterprises of Boca Raton, Fla. All died. One of the passengers, about nine minutes before the crash, joked, “You guys know where you’re goin’? You know where you’re goin’?” Marchese already was struggling with details, and warned the passenger that they were headed for bad weather and it was going to be tense...  serious concerns about the qualifications of the co-pilot,” said Canfora, a Norton resident. “There was a great deal going on that would not be usual in the cockpit in a usual flight, questions that he should have known the answer to and he didn’t seem to.” He said the co-pilot’s questions covered very basic aviation knowledge, including terminology that students learn early.  “The questions that were asked make it sound like the co-pilot didn’t know the answers or even the questions,” he said. According to the transcript, the pilot told the co-pilot twice that he shouldn’t be descending as quickly as he was. “He was diving at 2,000 feet per minute" read the transcript shared a common concern: Was Marchese inexperienced? Had trouble transitioning from simulator... navigating through thick clouds that descended to the minimum allowed for landing at an airport not equipped with a modern guidance system that draws a plane neatly to the end of the runway.

three minutes before impact, there was a sound of the engine power decreasing. Several seconds later, Chavez warned Marchese that he was going only 120 knots, which is about the speed the plane should have when it touches the runway.
“You can’t keep decreasing your speed,” he warned.
Marchese responded, “How do you get 120?”
Chavez said flaps weren’t yet fully extended, indicating that they would dangerously slow the plane.
“… because we gonna stall,” Chavez warned.
At this point, they checked some landing procedures, although two area pilots who read the transcript noted that there appeared to be no procedural checklist.
Two minutes had passed since the engines were throttled down. Power was reduced once again, and they agreed it was time for final descent.
They had only one more minute before it came to an explosive end.
Marchese put the plane into a steep dive.
It took about 20 seconds for Chavez to realize the rate of descent and say sharply: “You’re diving. You’re diving. Don’t dive. Two thousand feet per minute, buddy...”
Akron plane crash voice recorder transcript shows plane 'diving'

t what is really unusual and was in fact dangerous this particular co-pilot did not know what he was doing," said attorney Jamie Lebovitz.
In the voice recorder transcript, the pilot, Oscar Chavez, is talking with the co-pilot, Renato Marchese, who seems confused while trying to land the 1979 Hawker H25 twin-engine business jet at Akron Fulton International Airport.
The cockpit voice recorder details the Pilot-In-Command telling the co-pilot that his speed was too fast for his altitude and that he was “diving.”
"He was setting this airplane up for a stall," Lebovitz said. "Which is exactly what happened. The airplane essentially fell out of the sky because it was being flown too slowly and without being configured or set up for the landing."
Chavez tells Marchese that he can't keep reducing the speed or the plane will stall. At one point he says, "You're diving. you're diving. don't dive. two thousand feet per minute buddy... [said with emphasis]"
Chavez warns him not to go to 2,000 feet per minute before the following exchange:

14:52:05 Pilot: "You're..."

14:52:06 Pilot: "Oh, don't."

14:52:07: Co-pilot: "Yeah."

14:52:07: Pilot: "Don't go two thousand feet per minute."

14:52:10: Pilot: "When you are fifteen hundred feet above the ground, or minimums."

Less than 20 seconds later, more trouble.

14:52:27: Pilot: "Okay, level off guy. (spoken rapidly)"

14:52:28: Co-pilot: "Got it."

14:52:30: (Sound of rattle, similar to stick shaker)

14:52:31: Pilot: "Oh (expletive)."

14:52:32: GPWS (Ground proximity warning system): "Pull up."

14:52:33: Pilots: "Oh, oh, oh, oh." (said with emphasis)

The NTSB says the plane was registered to Rais Group International NC LLC, and operated by Execuflight.

According to the NTSB, Execuflight company policy stated "any pilot in command who has not flown over a route and/or not an airport within the preceding 90 days shall, before beginning the flight, become familiar with available information required for the safe operation of that flight, including the airport facilities, directory, approach plates..."

Investigators said the Execuflight company manual also requires any pilot who "has not flown over a route and into an airport within the preceding 90 days will...study the route on the low altitude VFR or IFR charts as appropriate."
