On January 21st 2010 helicopter AW139 EC-KYR, operated by INAER, took off from Almería airport at 17:11 UTC, to perform a SAR (Search And Rescue) maneuvers training flight. Pilot, copilot, hoist operator and rescue man were onboard. After finishing the training, crew asked for authorization and instructions to return to Almería airport. The crew read back the ATC instructions for returning to airport, without reporting any problem or declaring emergency. Some minutes later the helicopter fell down in the sea. The pilot, copilot and rescue man were killed in the impact and the hoist operator was seriously injured.
Wreckage of the helicopter has been recovered, as well as the digital flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder, with which the helicopter was equipped. The information contained in both recorders, data and communications, has been downloaded successfully in the facilities of AAIB, the English institution for air accidents investigation. The first inspections of the wreckage recovered, the data from the radar track and from the fight recorder indicate that the aircraft impacted against the sea while flying straight and stabilized, with a leveled attitude.
