Report from Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority on Fly Montserrat's October 2012 Antigua Crash

Government House

On 28 September 2015 Her Excellency the Governor received from the Director General of the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority (ECCAA) the final report of the investigation into the fatal accident involving Fly Montserrat aircraft VP-MON in Antigua on 7 October 2012.

Copies of the report have now also been sent to the UK’s Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB), who assisted with the ECCAA investigation, Air Safety Support International (ASSI), the airline regulator, and to Fly Montserrat. The Fly Montserrat issues raised in ECCAA’s initial report and subsequently expanded in the final report, were satisfactorily addressed by Fly Montserrat, in consultation with ASSI, immediately following the accident.

The report is a reminder of a sad day and the people who lost their lives. Our thoughts are again with the families of the victims. The report identifies heavy rainfall immediately prior to take-off, the ingress of water into the right hand fuel tank and wind shear on take-off as the main factors in the accident.

The report is now available on the website of the UK Air Accident Investigation Branch at https://www.gov.uk/government/news/brit ... a-7-oct-12
