A pilot error caused the An-2 crash in Yakutia. The man did not have a permit to operate air transport, as well as the right to carry people.

According to the press service of the East Siberian Department of the Investigative Committee for Transport, the investigation of the criminal case against the pilot accused of death and injury of people has been completed.

According to the investigation, on August 30, 2019, when flying from the Us Khatyn air site to the village of Suordakh, Verkhoyansk region of Yakutia, the 53-year-old pilot did not take into account the ratio of air flows in the mountainous area and incorrectly calculated the safe flight altitude, as a result of which he made a collision with a rock.

Two passengers died, three more received injuries of varying severity. The criminal case will be sent to the court for consideration on the merits.
