Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The airplane took off at 1556. Approach Control observed the airplane in a turn. At 1559, one of the pilots reported they were having trouble with their instruments, and requested clearance to return to the airport. This was the last communication with the flight. Radar contact was lost at 1600. Both the pilot and his wife were instrument rated. The airplane was instrument equipped and certified for instrument flight. Instrument meteorological conditions prevailed. The wreckage was located in the ocean approximately 3 miles offshore at a depth of 60 feet. The memory device recovered from the MFD was damaged to the extent that no data could be extracted. Engine examination revealed no anomalies. Examination of the CAPS rocket motor indicated it had fired when the airplane struck the water. This broke the activation cable and put pressure on the igniter spring. Water resistance, however, kept the parachute from deploying.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control, which resulted in an uncontrolled descent and impact with the water. Contributing to the accident were a reported instrument failure, pilot disorientation, and instrument meteorological conditions. A factor in the severity of the impact was the pilot's failure to deploy the airplane's onboard parachute system.
