The final day of the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo at Sebring was marred by a fatal accident when a REMOS GX aircraft crashed, according to a news release from David Gustafson.
“On Sunday, January 25th, at 7:35 a.m. EDT, a REMOS GX seemed to lose control right after takeoff and impacted the ground,” Gustafson wrote. “The plane was departing on a photo flight. The passenger, a photographer for the British publication ‘Today’s Pilot,’ died in the crash. The pilot survived the accident and was airlifted to a Hospital. He is in stable condition.”
“We are overwhelmed with this loss and our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the victim’s family,” said Michael Meirer, CEO of REMOS Aircraft, Inc.
The NTSB will be investigating the accident. “We will provide full cooperation with the authorities as they seek to determine the cause of this tragedy,” said Meirer.
