The helicopter took three passengers on a scenic flight. The aircraft took off at approximately 15:44 LT. After take-off, the Novákpuszta castle was viewed, and then they flew west over the Mosoni-Danube riverbed.

According to the unanimous statement of the eyewitnesses, it is probable that the helicopter was already flying west at the height of the tree crowns before the incident occurred; it circled at this height above the castle of Novákpuszta, and then also started at this height above the riverbed. The passengers on the plane could not estimate the altitude.
