NTSB Prelim: Cessna T206H

Last ADS-B Data Point Was Located Adjacent To Where The Wreckage Was Located, Near  The Peak Of A Hill

Location: Orangeville, UT Accident Number: WPR24FA024
Date & Time: October 27, 2023, 13:45 Local Registration: N915DV
Aircraft: Cessna T206H Injuries: 1 Fatal
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On October 27, 2023 about 1345 mountain daylight time, a Cessna T206H, N915DV, sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident near Huntington, Utah. The pilot sustained fatal injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.

A family member stated that the pilot had traveled earlier in the morning from his base airport in Craig, Colorado to Vernal, Utah. After spending about two hours in Vernal, the pilot departed with a planned destination of Cedar City, Utah. 

Investigators reviewed Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) provided Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data for the accident flight. The data disclosed that at about 1300 the airplane departed Vernal to the southwest and then proceeded west to Bottle Hollow Reservoir. Thereafter, at about 1310, the airplane headed on a southwest course and climbed to about 8,300 ft mean sea level (msl). At 1318, the airplane climbed to about 8,800 ft and remained at that altitude and on a constant southernly heading until the data ended at 1345. The last ADS-B data point was located adjacent to where the wreckage was located, near  the peak of a hill.

Investigators were unable to access the wreckage on site due to the steep terrain. The airplane was recovered and retained for a future examination.
