Report points to power loss in dunes plane crash Pilot did not have medical certificate ■

LAKESIDE — Loss of power appeared to be the main cause of an airplane crash Nov. 17 in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, officials said. A preliminary report released from the National Transportation Safety Board last week said the pilot, Ron Schick of North Bend, had a private pilot certificate and 750 hours of flight experience, including 80 hours in Avid Flyer “A” model airplanes. The airplane was a “C” model, home-built Richard S. Duncan Avid Flyer. Schick had two hours experience with the plane. Though at least a thirdclass medical certificate is generally required for all pilots, the report indicated the pilot had allowed his certificate to expire “because he only flew light sport aircraft.”

Flying out of the Lakeside State Airport, Schick was conducting primarily a pleasure flight with no Federal Aviation Administration flight plan. After trying to restart the plane without luck, Schick decided to land the plane on the dunes. It sustained damage to the fuselage and cockpit area. Schick’s only passenger, Rich Smith of Lakeside, was seriously injured. Schick had minor injuries,the report said. Smith had an FAA mechanic certificate with airframe, powerplant and inspection authorization ratings, as well as a flight instructor certificate. He was interested in purchasing the plane and was the pilot’s mechanic, the report said. The report added that according to the pilot’s statements, the plane that crashed had about 150 hours in service and about five hours since a recent engine overhaul.
