NTSB Opens Public Docket for Bell 407 Air Tour Accident Investigation

The Docket For This Investigation Includes More Than 250 Pages Of Factual Information

The National Transportation Safety Board opened the public docket Monday as part of its ongoing investigation of the June 8, 2022, crash of a Bell 407 helicopter in Kalea, Hawaii.

The helicopter was being operated as an air tour flight by Paradise Helicopters when the tail boom separated from the fuselage at an altitude of about 1,000 feet above ground level. Of the six people on board, three were seriously injured and three sustained minor injuries.

Investigative dockets, which are opened when the fact gathering phase of the investigation has been mostly completed, provide industry and other stakeholders access to factual information that may have safety implications.

The docket for this investigation includes more than 250 pages of factual information, including reports on airworthiness, structural materials, and survival factors. The docket also includes interview transcripts, photographs and other investigative materials.

The docket contains only factual information collected by NTSB investigators; it does not provide the final report, nor does it contain analysis, findings, recommendations, or probable cause determinations. No conclusions about the probable cause of the crash should be drawn from the information within the docket. Analysis, findings, recommendations, and probable cause determinations related to the rupture will be issued by the NTSB at a later date.

Additional material will be added to the docket as it becomes available.
