The aircraft departed from SDNP with the pilot and 3 passengers on board, destined for the northwest sector of SBMT, with the objective of overflying stretches of terrain located at approximately 6 nm from Campo de Marte.
Approximately 40 minutes into the flight, while flying at low altitude over a residential area, the aircraft collided with electric wires and then with the roofs and concrete slabs of three houses. The only fatal victim was the pilot.

3.2.2 Operational Factor Concerning the operation of the aircraft
a) Pilot judgment – a contributor
The pilot disregarded the possibility of turning to the left, a maneuver that would be safest and most adequate, and chose to fly backwards without taking into account the wind coming from 210º, thus placing the aircraft in a critical quadrant (a situation to be avoided, according to the aircraft manufacturer).
b) Flight planning – a contributor
Before the flight, there was neither a coordination meeting nor a briefing with the passengers for detailing the flight and safety-related aspects.
