Excerpt
Excerpt: On March 29, 2001, about 1902 mountain standard time (MST), a Gulfstream III, N303GA, operated by Avjet Corporation, collided with terrain about 2,400 feet short of runway 15 at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport, Sardy Field (ASE), Aspen, Colorado, while attempting to land. The three crewmembers and all 15 passengers were killed and the airplane was destroyed. The flight was operating under 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 135 as a charter flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Los Angeles, California, to ASE. Although the National Transportation Safety Board?s investigation of this accident is ongoing, preliminary findings have revealed a safety issue that warrants the Federal Aviation Administration?s (FAA) attention. Background: N303GA departed LAX about 1611 Pacific Standard Time (1711 MST) on an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan and entered the Aspen terminal area about 1843. The cockpit voice recorder indicated that the flight crewmembers planned to conduct a visual approach to runway 15. However, as they descended toward the airport, clouds and snow showers increased, obscuring the field. Weather conditions at the time were reported as follows: wind 250ΓΈ at 3 knots, visibility 10 miles, light snow, few clouds at 1,500 feet, broken cloud ceiling at 2,500 feet, and broken cloud ceiling at 5,000 feet. As N303GA continued its approach, ASE air traffic controllers provided arriving flight crews vectors for the airport?s VOR/DME-C instrument approach procedure and advised them that visibility north of the airport (along the flightpath of the approach) was reduced to 2 miles.
