On May 15, 2021, a Challenger 605 private jet crashed while attempting to land at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport in Colorado, United States. All 18 people on board were killed. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has issued a warning about the risks associated with circling approaches after the crash.

The NTSB has determined that the probable cause of the crash was the captain’s decision to attempt a circling approach in strong winds, which resulted in the loss of control of the aircraft. The NTSB has issued a number of safety recommendations, including that pilots should not attempt a circling approach unless they are familiar with the airport and the approach conditions, and that they should maintain a safe altitude at all times.

This is a tragic event, and our thoughts are with the families of the victims. We hope that the NTSB’s recommendations will help to prevent future accidents.
