On October 28, 2013, a CANAVIA Líneas Aéreas Piper PA-28RT-201T Turbo Arrow IV out of Gran Canaria airport was on a training night flight when it crashed.

The three people aboard died on impact which occurred in dense fog in the mountainous La Palma area. The same weather that contributed to the accident hampered recovery of the victims, Adonai Orihuela, Geraxane Urrutikoetxea Ormaetxe and the pilot Jerameel Mejías. In the night, the beacon was detected in Tamadaba, which assisted in the search the next day.

The remains were located in the Pinar de Tamadaba, between the ravine of La Palma and Palo. Canary Island 112, and the Emergency Coordination Center responded to the scene.

Two helicopters were on the scene to convey the victims’ remains to grancanario de Gáldar.

Canavia is a Canarian company .
