    She has to sue if only to establish that Kobe’s estate isn’t responsible

    to file the lawsuit on the day of the memorial is pretty savage. that's to basically say FU to the pilot and his family. i get it. it's totally his fault. the company wasn't allowed to fly on instruments, but the pilot did it anyway, which was illegal even if he was instrument rated.

    I know there's a lot of kids on this board which is why we're getting the response we are... but part of being a professional is taking responsibility of YOUR actions. There should be no amount of pressure that should have made that pilot fly other than his own decision. He is the professional, the only one trained to fly and make the correct judgement based on his ability alone.

    As far as the lawsuit goes, bad timing but expected.

    EDIT: I should also note, I'm sure the pilot has a SIGNIFICANT liability insurance policy in place. Any independent contractor does if they have the least common sense.

    I get the need to want to blame someone but IF the company did everything to the T and the pilot just didn't follow protocol then is that the fault of the company?

    *I have not heard nor done any digging into this to know if anything is known yet.

    God, I hate when people speak without knowledge of the situation.


    The LAPD put all of their aircraft units on the ground because of how bad the fog was that day. That helicopter should NOT have been in the air, plain and simple. And even IF they decided to fly (which obviously they did), they should NOT have flown with VFR, instead they should have used IFR because there was no way to fly VFR when you're blinded by the fog.


    The lawsuit is 100% justified, and I guarantee she wins the lawsuit.

    You're unbelievable uneducated in this topic dude, everything you've posted I've facepalmed at.


    Do you know how these aviation regulations are created? The vast majority of regulations are written in blood....meaning there has to be a disaster or crash, death...SOMETHING for them to go and create new regulations.


    This is how new regulations are created. Now does she need to sue them in order to create a new regulation? Probably not...however, she's suing because they are responsible for the pilot's actions as he was using their aircraft.

    Even if that were the case, as the pilot of the aircraft, you HAVE to take responsibility for your actions. Kobe didn't put a gun to his head and tell him to fly the plane.


    If it's not safe to fly, that's that. Idc if you're flying the president, an experienced pilot (even unexperienced) should understand that he his holding the lives of his passengers in his hands when taking them in the air.

    And even though there was no visibility, it's not like the helicopter crashed into the side of a mountain that the pilot couldn't see..

    the helicopter simply started a downward spiral and crashed, which doesn't seem to have anything to do with visibility.

    I'm interested to know what caused it to suddenly crash without any engine failure.. again, not sure how bad visibility causes a helicopter to "bank left" and crash.




    You ****ing moron, that's exactly what happened.
