A National Transportation Safety Board investigator arrived today in Santos, Brazil, to assist in the investigation of Wednesday's aviation accident involving a Cessna 560XL Plus that crashed on approach to Santos Airport.
Because this accident involves a U.S. manufactured aircraft, under the provisions of the International Civil Aviation Organization's Annex 13, the Aeronautical Accidents Investigation and Prevention Center (CENIPA) of Brazil notified the NTSB. Accordingly, the NTSB designated Senior Air Safety Investigator Tim Monville as the U.S. accredited representative. He is accompanied by technical advisors from the Federal Aviation Administration and the Cessna Aircraft Company.
The investigation is being conducted by CENIPA, which will release all information related to the investigation.
