Second accident in as many days. D-EHEH went down under CAPs yesterday. Cirrus need to do more to reduce their accident rate (albeit, they do a lot, the most of any manufacture – well done Cirrus on this).

We need to take responsibility away from the pilot somewhat and make the system safer. Without doing this, we will be the last generation to accept the inherent risks associated with being PIC.

Why do you say that wrt this accident?

JasonC, correctly noted, this not a comment specific to this accident, just a general observation that humans can’t be safe to a sufficient degree of reliability vs a system. I’ll take the thought to a separate thread. Until people accept this concept, the accident rate will continue to be high.

Unfortunately 4 GA accidents today. Besides this one, there was crash landing in Greece, midair collision in Poland and aerobatic aircraft crash in Serbia (pilot was fatally injured).

the accident rate will continue to be high

Is it really that high? How high? And if it is, do we care enough to take up golf?

I mean, people die on golf courses, and not only of boredom…

Apparently the registration is D-EUFO.

It was enroute between Montichiari / Brescia and Schwaebisch Hall (EDTY).
