Investigating agency: CIAA
Narrative:
Impacted wooded terrain during a flight from Azua to Mao.

Cause.
The pilot, despite his experience in aerial spraying, did not have the training of flights between mountains, a condition that would make it easier for him to know the behavior of the aircraft in the face of the physical phenomena that occur when flying in those areas and at certain heights.
The time of the accident the weather conditions in the area were marginal, which forced the pilot to vary the route he usually used to move the aircraft from his base of operations located in Boca de Mao in the province of Valverde, to Azua and vice versa.
