Growth in commercial and business aviation over the past decade has saturated Brazil’s hub airports, leaving both commercial airlines and business aviation looking for alternatives. Now, it appears a solution is in the offing.
A Beechcraft C90B King Air crashed on April 20th, about 300 meters short of the runway at the Comandante Rolim Adolfo Amaro State Airport, 25 nm northwest of Sao Paulo Brazil. The aircraft caught fire after the crash and the single pilot occupant was killed. The aircraft was on a test flight after maintenance work.
