A little over a year after the fatal accident, where the former basketball player Kobe Bryant and her daughter lost their lives, investigations continue into helicopter safety where they traveled, which has yielded a new data, which he was forbidden to fly in cloudy conditions.

This day the president of the National Transportation Safety Board of the United States, Robert Sumwalt, he noted that the pilot “was flying under visual or VFR flight orders, which legally prohibited him from penetrating the clouds”, but that in the end he continued towards them.

Investigations are ongoing and “will discuss whether the pilot was pressured to complete the flight “. What were the expectations of the pilot according to company policy? Did you put pressure on yourself and what steps could you have taken to avoid flying into the clouds? “Said Sumwalt.

The board has said that pilots can get confused about an airplane’s altitude and acceleration when they can’t see the sky or the landscape around them. Sumwalt said the board “will discuss the phenomenon of spatial disorientation, which is the powerful sensation that confuses pilots who lose visual reference and what types of training can be effective in counteracting this effect. “

The board previously said an examination of the helicopter’s engines and rotors found no evidence of “catastrophic mechanical failure.”
