|Confidence Rating:|| Accident investigation report completed and information captured|
The direct cause of the occurrence was the pilot's inadequate assessment of the situation with regard to:
- he did not assess the terrain with sufficient accuracy when selecting the terrain;
- he did not detect and correct the glide in time when descending to a lower slope;
- he did not perform the flare procedure accurately under the given conditions (delayed and too fast start of nose pick-up).
Indirect causes and contributing factors:
- when looking downwards at a high angle, especially at high sun elevations (thus in short shadows), it is difficult to judge the curvature and steepness of the slope;
- climbing uphill becomes increasingly complex as the slope increases, and is not safe to attempt without specific training and practice;
- when selecting a landing site, the pilot did not give due weight to the more suitable terrain nearby, focusing too much on the first site selected.
