Civil aviation experts are calling for improved monitoring of private flying clubs after two people died in a light aircraft crash in East China’s Jiangsu Province on Monday. One other person on-board was seriously injured.
The aircraft was unlicensed and the flight itself had not been approved, according to a report released on Tuesday by an investigation team made up of staff from the East China Branch of the General Administration of Civil Aviation, the local government and the local bureau of public security.
Zhang Fa, an engineer with the administration, said strict annual examinations should be conducted on flying clubs to ensure they are abiding by regulations. He added: “Although the number of airplanes possessed by people or clubs is still not huge in the country, some of them take great risks in conducting flights.
