The Cessna P206C Super Skylane departed La Ceiba-Goloson International Airport in Honduras at 14:15 UTC on a domestic air taxi flight to Puerto Lempira. Weather conditions were fine on departure (VMC). However some 32 NM from the destination, another flight reported marginal weather conditions.
The aircraft was flying at 9500 feet when it entered an apparent uncontrolled descent and impacted a field, killing all four occupants.

PROBABLE CAUSE: After having analyzed all the information pertinent to the investigation of this accident, it can be concluded that the following factors and probable causes that caused this event were:
1. Adverse weather conditions. (Contributing factor)
2. The pilot's recent experience in flying this type of aircraft in adverse weather conditions was not enough. (Cause)
3. Having encountered instrumental meteorological conditions (IMC), the pilot could have caused the aircraft to enter an unnoticed unusual position, which, if not corrected efficiently, could cause it to become worse and become spin, which due to the flight altitude of the aircraft, could not be recovered, resulting in the death of the pilot, passengers, and destruction of the aircraft. (Cause)
