Fatal Camp Verde Helicopter Crash Caused by Pilot Error

By Breyer Law Offices on August 1, 2012

At the Breyer Law Offices, P.C., we were saddened and shocked to hear that a recent helicopter accident was caused by pilot error, according to reports from Arizona Central News. The crash happened in early July 2012, killing four people, and has been under investigation ever since. Reports from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), released on July 23, indicated that the pilot was flying too low and hit a cable pulley system in a canyon before crashing. A final report on the crash has yet to be released. We are truly distressed over the deaths of the three passengers and pilot and our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies go out to their families through their continued grief.
