The Ministry of Works and Transport has released the preliminary report on the investigation of the gyrocopter crash that occurred about 15 kilometers east of Windhoek on 17 December 2020 which claimed the lives of both occupants. According to the report the gyrocopter hit power lines and crashed into the road, causing it to burst into flames, with no distress call made to air traffic control. The gyrocopter was found to be airworthy and had no mechanical defects, but the pilot had reportedly been flying at an altitude of 20 to 30 feet, which is well below the cleared altitude of 7000 feet. Magnus Abraham, the Head of the Directorate of Aircraft Investigations in the Ministry of Works and Transport further told Future Media News that at the time of the crash the pilot did not have a valid license.
