Descripción:
A Dornier Do 28D-2 Skyservant, HK-3982, departed Villavicencio, Colombia at 10:50, bound for Mitú. At 12:22 the airplane departed Mitú for La Pedrera. En route the flight encountered poor weather. The crew contacted Mitú to request the weather at La Pedrera, but the controller at Mitú was unable to obtain the weather information. The crew decided to divert to a jungle airstrip at Taraira. The soft surface runway is 515 metres long. The airfield was not authorized for operation at the time of the accident.
When the crew attempted to takeoff from the airstrip, acceleration was not as expected and the takeoff was abandoned. The airplane ran off the airstrip and suffered structural damage.

Probable Cause:

CAUSA PROBABLE:
Decisión de la tripulación de suspender el despegue en un campo inapropiado por las condiciones de superficie húmeda y blanda que produjo mayores coeficientes de fricción y menor factor de aceleración que impidieron alcanzar las velocidades de sustentación lift-off lo cual determinó que la tripulación discontinuara el decolaje sin distancia suficiente de parada, lo cual condujo al accidente.
