If you read the entire accident report you will find that the
pilot was previously suicidal and also taking anti-depressant
medication at the time of the accident which would NOT allow
him to be legal to fly an aircraft.
The report also states that he lied on the medical application
about his medical and mental condition so he could obtain the
required medical certificate to fly an aircraft under the FAA
Taking prescribed anti-depressant medication is a disqualifying
factor to obtain an FAA Medical Certificate.
He should have never been flying that aircraft for Taquan Air
and the worst part is he knew it!
