Circumstances:
The crew and the passenger were prospecting new routes to Kupang, Sunda Island, and were also distributing flyers to locals. While approaching Tabanan at a height of 1,250 meters, pilot noted the presence of a ridge in front of him. Due to topography, it was not possible for him to make a U turn so he increased all engine power but the aircraft was unable to gain height. It hit trees, stalled and crashed in a wooded area. All four occupants were rescued and the pilot was slightly injured.
