Narrative:
The helicopter concerned had been recently sold by a Swedish owner to an Italian company. On the day preceding the planned departure to Italy, the company's pilot wished to perform a brief flight to check that all systems
functioned as intended. During this flight the helicopter crashed in a field after a engine failure. The helicopter became a total wreck and the pilot and passenger were slightly injured. The previous owner documented the
preparations for the flight and the phases of the flight performed near the take-off site using a video camera. Radar data recorded from the flight could be used to calculate the time and duration of the flight. The SHK investigation has shown that the engine stopped during the flight as a result of fuel shortage due to inadequate preparation for the flight. It was also found during the investigation, that the pilot did not have the necessary
authority to perform the flight.
