Nine hydroelectric workers and the pilot died when an air taxi crashed on approach to the Monte Dourado airfield at Almeirim in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest on March 12. The EMB 820 Carajá, an Embraer-built version of the Piper Navajo powered by a pair Pratt &Whitney PT-6A-27 turboprops, had been operated by air taxi firm Fretax since 2010.
