RUFUS - Less than 24 following the crash of Senate Majority Leader Brad Newsom's plane early this morning, the Jesstopian Aviation Safety Administration has revealed the cause of the plane crash that claimed the lives of Majority Leader Brad Newsom, His aid and the two pilots. In a brief statement the JASA said that it had found significant issues with the flight's computer set up that contributed
to the crash that claimed the lives of all 4 people on board the aircraft. It cited that "the pilots failed to recognize a high nose up attitude and adjust according before the stall horns began sounding in the cockpit. Before the stall, the aircraft issues aural alerts including "stall, stall, stall", "speed low, stall, speed low, stall" before the actual stall. The pilots also failed to use proper rudder inputs that would have allowed the aircraft to recover. It is also noted that the captain failed to disengage the autopilot until the moment the stall was imminent."
The JASA investigators who flew to ADW, said that the winds this morning were favorable and not issues should have arisen, and that Newsom should still be sitting here today. "Our finding faults both pilots for not understanding what the Challenger 350 plane was doing the moment it crashed. Captain Leslie Attaburg, 62, and First Officer Marcus Sayden, 26, had a combined total of 24,000 flight hours in the Challenger 350. The airplane was in the most capable hands and yet it crashed due to pilot error.
The crew could have recovered from the stall itself had they acted immediately and appropriately Investigators said that "had the autopilot been disengaged, the plane would have immediately entered a recovery. They had those options yet they made poor judgement calls."
"We are still awaiting the findings of the United States Federal Aviation Administration, and the National Transportation Safety Board reports and rulings.
