The owner-pilot was 64 years old. He sat in the right seat with his daughter on his lap. He possessed a private pilot certificate for airplane single-engine land issued in 1967. Investigators could find no recent medical certificate. Additionally, the investigation failed to reveal any information about the owner-pilot's training or total flight hours. Certainly, he was not rated to fly helicopters. When asked if the owner ever flew the helicopter, the chief pilot responded that it was common for him to fly and that, “He liked to fly.”
