Summary: Two Cirrus 22 type aircraft (registration 4X-CWN and 4X-CWO) arrived from ISRAEL at Kos National Airport on 28.04.09 at 09:18 h. After about 3 hours both aircrafts (a/c) took off with Kerkira as their destination. En route, while at 9,000 ft, they encountered icing conditions. Aircraft 4X-CWO returned and landed in Athens, while a/c 4X-CWN that preceded, landed at Zakinthos airport at 15:11 h. Next, the pilot of a/c 4X-CWN submitted a VFR flight plan to Kerkira and took off at 16:44 h. At 16:51:50 h the pilot reported his position as 91 nm from Kerkira and at 16:56:11 h he was returning to Zakinthos. The pilot’s wife who was on board the aircraft responded “just a minute please” to two calls from ATC at 16:57:16 h and 16:59:14 h, sounding obviously stressed. After that, despite continuous calls by ATC, there was no further response from the a/c. The sound emitted from an Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) was headed on the emergency frequency of the Airport of Kefalonia at 17:01 h, and ceased after 2 minutes. The wreckage of the a/c was located at 05:30 h on 29.04.09 on a mountainous region of Mt. Ainos of Kefalonia which was
hard to access, at an altitude of 4.460 ft. The Hellenic Air Accident Investigation and Aviation Safety Board (AAIASB) was notified of the accident at 21:00 h on 28.04.09 and with its decision AAIASB/621/29.04.09 assigned an Investigation Team with J. Papadopoulos, Investigator as IIC, and N. Pouliezos, Investigator, P. Tziritis, Air Traffic Controller, L. Loukopoulou, Human Factors specialist. Members of the team arrived at the site
of the accident at 08:30 h on 29.04.09. Notification about the accident was sent to Israel (country of registration), the USA (country of manufacture of the a/c) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Mr. Itzhak Raz, Chief Accident Investigator, was designated as the accredited representative from Israel. He was notified about the accident at 21:30 h on 28.04.09 and arrived at the site of the accident on the morning of 29.04.09. The Investigation Team waited until he arrived in the site and then evacuated the bodies. The draft final report was send to the Israeli Aircraft Accident Investigation Office and to NTSB for their comments as per Annex 13 of Chicago Convention. The comments from them were taking into account in the report.
