4:01 pm
as well as aviation news talk podcast host max trescott told us the pilots were in communication through the common traffic advisory frequency or ctaf just before the crash trescott says he's done investigation into the accident and said the bigger aircraft was coming into land much faster than it should have been and only began to communicate with the other pilot involved about a mile away from the airport. he adds the smaller plane did not have the transponder turn on which allows other pilots to see the craft on their displays. these were contributing factors in trescott's opinion, but he thinks a tower could have also helped at a town airport a controller would have given instructions to the twin which was flying extremely fast this slow down long before it reached the airport that didn't happen the fact this twin was going extremely fast didn't get noted apparently by its pilot or the other planes that were in the traffic pattern while trescott said both pilots communicated through cta. they aren't legally required to do so most pilots at so-called uncontrolled airports choose to use ctaf because it's safer when
