Without Cirrus, I believe the number of active pilots would be even smaller.
Probable cause: A total loss of engine power during takeoff due to fuel starvation as a result of a failure of internal components of the fuel servo.
Probable cause: The pilot's exceedance of the airplane's critical angle of attack during takeoff, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall. Contributing to the accident was the pilot's impairment by the effects of a combination of psychoa
Probable cause: The failure of the landing gear to extend during landing approach due to the interference between the landing gear motor's sector and worm gears.
Probable cause: The pilot's negligent maintenance of the airplane, which resulted in improper fuel management, fuel starvation, and a loss of engine power during takeoff due to a missing securing pin in the fuel selector handle, and a su
Probable cause: The pilot’s failure to maintain an appropriate descent rate during approach, which resulted in landing short of the runway threshold.
Probable cause: The pilot's decision to take off from unsuitable terrain with a tailwind, which resulted in a nose-over.
Probable cause: The pilot's improper decision to perform a steep turn at low altitude, which resulted in exceedance of the airplane's critical angle of attack and an aerodynamic stall.
Probable cause: The pilot's uncoordinated flight control inputs and subsequent inadvertent cross-control aerodynamic stall in the airport traffic pattern that resulted in a loss of control and uncontrolled descent with insufficient altitude for recovery.
Probable cause: The airplane’s encounter with unforecast icing conditions, which led to structural icing that obscured the pilot’s vision, an aerodynamic stall, and a subsequent hard landing.
