Significant Factors


  1. The pilot felt that he was under pressure to complete the flight that day.
  2. The pilot and the aircraft were only authorised for flight in visual meteorological conditions.
  3. Visual reference with the ground or the horizon was lost when the aircraft inadvertently entered cloud.
  4. The pilot probably became spatially disoriented and was unable to maintain adequate control of the aircraft when visual reference to the ground was lost.
