Circumstances:
On final approach to Buriti Alegre Airfield runway 05, following an uneventful flight from Goiânia-Santa Genoveva Airport, the pilot attempted to lower the flaps twice but the circuit breakers opened. He decided to continue the approach in a flapless configuration when, on short final, the aircraft stalled and collided with a wall located 15 metres short of runway. On impact, the undercarriage were torn off and the airplane landed on its belly, slid for 500 metres and came to rest, bursting into flames. All six occupants escaped uninjured while the aircraft was destroyed by fire.
Probable cause:
The pilot decided to continue the approach in a flapless configuration and at an insufficient speed, which caused the aircraft to stall on short final.

Circumstances:
On final approach to Goiânia-Santa Genoveva Airport, the crew encountered poor weather conditions with a limited visibility due to rain. The aircraft landed about 500 metres past the runway threshold but as it was misaligned, the right main gear touched down on the left side of the runway. The crew attempted to steer the plane back onto the runway when the right main gear collapsed. The aircraft went out of control, lost its right engine then its nose gear and came to rest on the runway. All 67 occupants evacuated safely.
Probable cause:
Wrong approach configuration on part of the crew who continued the approach while the aircraft was not properly aligned with the runway centerline.

Captain / Total hours on type:
250.00
Circumstances:
After being ferried from Alta Floresta following maintenance, the pilot was completing a flight from Canarana to Anápolis with two passengers on board. Upon touchdown on runway 07, he encountered crosswinds from the left and lost control of the airplane that veered off runway to the right. It flew over a ravine, struck irregularities in the terrain and came to rest. All three occupants escaped with minor injuries and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. The aircraft was still operated under a Polish registration SP-FLU while this was already cancelled. The owner was in the process of applying for a Brazilian certificate of registration.
Probable cause:
The following findings were identified:
- It was not possible to determine the contribution of the physiological aspect because the pilot was not found and his license had expired.
- At the critical moment of landing, a state of indecision was triggered in the pilot regarding the procedure to be adopted (landing or going around), impairing its decision-making capacity and causing delay in decision making.
- The pilot did not act adequately on the aircraft controls in order to counteract the action of the crosswind, allowing the aircraft to stand to the right of the approach axis and touch the right side of the runway. Subsequently, he was unable to prevent the left wings from climbing, causing the lower right wing to touch the ground and exit the runway.
- The pilot's decision not to go around immediately when he noticed the first signs of the aircraft's turning tendency, forced by the wind effect and, consequently, having lost full control of the aircraft, contributed to the worsening of the subsequent facts. The pilot acted belatedly when he decided to go around.
- The owner of the aircraft no longer verified that the technical qualification and the Certificate of Physical Capacity of the pilot were up to date for the performance of the air activity, as well as the certificates necessary for the operation of the aircraft. It also went against what prescribes the CTA certification, which establishes two pilots as the minimum crew for the aircraft.
- The left cross wind, associated with the inadequacy of the pilot's controls to counteract it, resulted in the right wing touching the ground, with consequent loss of control of the aircraft.
- The pilot failed to carry out a readaptation flight in the aircraft with a qualified instructor, being for more than three years without flying in the equipment.

Copilot / Total hours on type:

Circumstances:
The twin engine aircraft departed a private strip in Itapuranga on a flight to Goiânia, carrying seven passengers and two pilots. About 10 minutes after takeoff, while in cruising altitude, the captain informed ATC about the failure of the right engine. Because the flight was short (25 minutes in total), he decided to continue to Goiânia. Twelve minutes later, the left engine failed as well. The crew declared an emergency and as he was unable to reach Goiânia Airport, he attempted an emergency landing in a pasture. The aircraft crash landed 13 km short of runway 14 threshold. All nine occupants were rescued, among them seven were injured, three seriously.
Probable cause:
Both engines failed 12 minutes apart due to fuel exhaustion. The following contributing factors were identified:
- Fuel tanks were empty,
- The fuel quantity was insufficient to cover the requested flying distance,
- Poor flight preparation and planning,
- Complacency on part of the copilot,
- Wrong decisions on part of the captain,
- Failures in the organization of flights within the operations of the Government of the State of Goiás,
- Miscalculations in fuel consumption.
- Operating an airplane with faulty fuel gauges,
- Failures in monitoring related to flight safety culture,
- Poor crew resources management,
- Poor crew coordination,
- Lack of crew interactions.

Circumstances:
The single engine aircraft was dispatched at Luziânia Airport for local training purposes, carrying a crew of five consisting of one instructor and four pilot under training. Following several approaches, the aircraft was descending to the runway when the instructor reduced the engine power to simulate a failure. From a height of about 300 feet, the aircraft nosed down, lost height and crashed short of runway threshold. All five occupants were uninjured and the aircraft was written off.
Probable cause:
The following contributing factors were reported:
- The traffic and the high number of landings caused a natural fatigue by the instructor and reduced his appreciations,
- There were too much pilots under training for one single instructor,
- The copilot's experience was insufficient with only one hour on Cessna 208,
- Poor crew coordination,
- Poor crew action on engine power to expect recovery after stall.

Circumstances:
Fifty minutes after takeoff, while in cruising altitude on a flight from Brasília to Rio Verde, the crew lost control of the aircraft that entered a dive and crashed in an open field located near Guapó. The aircraft was totally destroyed and all nine occupants were killed.
Probable cause:
At the time of impact, both engines were running at cruise power. On takeoff from Brasília Airport, the total weight ot the aircraft was 436 kilos above MTOW, which may contribute to the accident. Nevertheless, investigations were unable to determine the exact cause of the accident. Maybe the pilot-in-command made a brutal movement on the control column, causing the aircraft to become uncontrollable following a structural failure of both winglets that were recently installed.

He veered off runway to the right, causing the airplane to stop in a grassy area. All occupants evacuated safely and there were no injuries. The following night, two men were dispatched to guard the aircraft. A candle was lit inside the plane, causing a fire. The cabin burned out, killing both guards.
