The pilot who was flying the helicopter that crashed last year and killed Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and six other passengers likely became disoriented after heading into the clouds, investigators said.

The pilot of the Island Express helicopter probably suffered “spatial disorientation”, said Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), at a public hearing on the accident.

Shortly before the accident, the pilot said it was climbing to 4,000 feet, but the helicopter was actually turning left and descending rapidly, the NTSB said.

“This maneuver is consistent with the pilot experiencing spatial disorientation in conditions of limited visibility.”Sumwalt said. “He would incorrectly perceive that the helicopter was going up when it was descending.”

Kobe Bryant, 41, was traveling with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and six other passengers when the Sikorsky S-76 helicopter crashed into a steep hillside in Calabasas, west of Los Angeles. There were no survivors.
