Circumstances:
Aircraft was performing an on-demand flight from Petropavlovka to Toora-Khem with seven fishermen and a pilot who want to go to a remote fish camp located in the natural reserve of Azas. While flying at low altitude, aircraft went out of control and crashed on the shore of Choigan-Khol lake. While all seven passengers were slightly injured, the pilot was killed. It appears that the aircraft was not registered and did not have any certificate of airworthiness. Therefore, the flight was illegal and no flight plan was filed.
