Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The aircraft took off for a demonstration flight but crashed on a hill 1,3 km from the runway end.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The poor pilot judgement for taking off towards the direction where the terrain is unsuitable for single engine performance. Contributory factors: "1) The gross takeoff weight which was more than that allowed to clear the rising terrain along the flight path; and 2) Inadequate available data regarding Malabalay Airport."
