Once on the scene, the investigator will begin documenting the scene and examining the aircraft. The investigator will request radar data, weather information, maintenance records and the pilot’s medical records.

NTSB investigators will also look at the human, machine and environment as the outline of the investigation.

A preliminary report, including all the factual information learned to date, should publish 15 days after the accident.

At this stage of an investigation, it is too soon for NTSB to state a cause. The investigators will provide factual information when available.

Investigations involving fatalities, and other major investigations, usually take between 12 and 24 months to complete.
