Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The RV-7 collided with a mountain. The pilot died.

The probable cause of the air accident was pilot's inadequate decision to continue in flight at the level where the conditions did not allow for flying in visibility set forth for VFR flights and in constant visibility of the ground. As a result, the pilot failed to maintain a safe altitude and was unable to avoid a collision against trees in the mountainous terrain
in time.
The situation was probably adversely affected by the following concurring circumstances:
- The pilot did not report his situation and his intended procedure to the FIC in time.
- When flying into the clouds, the pilot depended on the autopilot and did not use the warning mode regarding the imminent danger of an impact to the ground in time.
