Accidents & Serious Incidents involving BN2P

  • BN2A, Vicinity Bonaire Netherlands Antilles, 2009 (LOC AW HF) (On 22 October 2009, a Divi Divi Air BN2 Islander experienced engine failure to what was suspected to have been an overloaded aircraft shortly after departure from CuraƧao. Rather than return, the Pilot chose to continue the flight but had to carry out a ditching when it proved impossible to maintain height. All passengers survived but the Pilot died. The cause of the engine failure could not be established but the Investigation found a context for the accident which had constituted systemic failure by the Operator to deliver operational safety which had been ignored by an inadequate regulatory oversight regime.)
