The IC concluded during the investigation that the cause of the occurrence was that the pilot of the aircraft with reg. mark HA-4361 attempted to join the aircraft in the thermal along a risky path, disregarding the relevant rules, and then failed to react, in a timely manner, to the danger of collision which had formed in the meantime.
In the opinion of the IC, the following factors might also have contributed to the occurrence:
− increased psychic stress due to the competition
− large number of aircraft manoeuvring close to one another beneath the same cloud.
