JOHANNESBURG - The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) said most of the recent light aircraft accidents were caused by the pilot’s poor judgement.
On Sunday, the organisation said it had a record five plane crashes in the past few days.
Two people died on Friday evening, when their plane crashed into a plantation near Greytown, KwaZulu-Natal.
Another light aircraft landed near Durban’s Virginia Airport on Friday, injuring the pilot and his passenger.
In April, a man died when his two-seater plane crashed at Greenbushes, outside Port Elizabeth.
The association's chairman and former airline pilot, Carl Jensen, said the recent crashes were a result of the “lawless” behavior of South Africans.
He said one could avoid injury and even death, by simply following regulations.
