Good article. It's very rare that a pilot would be charged in an accident but given the number and types of misjudgments, I can see the point of the prosecution. Flight training is very important, I cringe when I see ads in aviation magazines for faster and cheaper pilot training.

I find it difficult to belive that this aircraft doesn't have AP. I find it even more difficult to ubderstand how can an owner of a charter airline pressure a pilot to fly an aircraft in bad weather without AP.

The lack of an autopilot, which may just be that it was inoperative, had nothing to do with the accident. Airline aircraft such as the British Aerospace Jetstream 31 and Beechcraft 1900 don't have autopilots. They do however require two pilots.
