Circumstances:
Few minutes after takeoff from Port-au-Prince, the pilot tried to make an emergency landing 10 km north of the capital city. On landing, the aircraft overturned and was damaged beyond repair. All occupants were slightly injured. It seems that a door improperly closed was the cause of the accident. Later, the Haïti civil aviation authority decided to suspend the AOC of the operator until further notice.
