The seaplane crashed during a training flight under unknown circumstances. All four occupants died in the crash.

Most likely, the accident of the amphibious aircraft RA-2961G when flying with a weight close to the maximum allowable weight and a CG close to the maximum rear, occurred due to PIC errors in piloting, which led to the aircraft being put into a stall followed by a transition into a spin.

The contributing factors were most likely:
- organizational deficiencies during flight operations;
- unpreparedness of the PIC for flight, expressed in the absence of study of the airplane flight control and the peculiarities of piloting the aircraft being tested;
- performing a flight element at a true altitude of 300 m instead of the required flight task of 1000 m.
