CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — The National Transportation Safety Board says pilot error was to blame for a plane crash at the Chesapeake Regional Airport last year.
The NTSB said in an incident report the pilot failed to apply carburetor heat during the approach for a touch-and-go landing.
This error resulted in a total loss of engine power during the subsequent takeoff. Two people were on board the plane when it went down in March 2018.
No one was hurt in the crash.
