-- While Hans Overturf
is one professional noted for his contributions in the field of financial services, his expertise does not just regard the intense world of fiscal management. In fact, Overturf is a noted private pilot who has demonstrated his skill in flying helicopters--a skill that not many Americans are able to brave. Although his experience in flying has remained secure, he says that the field--while exciting--does involve a great deal of danger.
The recent crash of a UPS cargo plane in Birmingham, Alabama--depicted in a recent NBC News article
--is a solid example of how dangerous the life of a pilot can be, according to Hans Overturf. He explains, "When people think about the dangers of flying, minds often relate such hazards to the passengers. However, the case of the UPS cargo plane crash, in which only crew members on board died, helps us remember that those directing aircraft are also putting their lives at risk when on duty."
NBC News explains the recent incident further, "A large UPS cargo plane crashed early Wednesday morning near the airport in Birmingham, Ala., killing the pilot and co-pilot. Investigators on the scene are now assessing the conditions of the aircraft, officials said." Although the two crew members were the only ones killed, the article also notes that the crash forced evacuation of many nearby neighborhoods.
As of now, the details and causes of the crash remain unknown. Citing, Robert Sumwalt, member of the National Transportation Safety Board, the article reveals, "...initial information shows the aircraft came in through some trees and made the initial ground impact at the bottom of a hill, before going up the hill and resting at the top. He also said initial reports show there was no distress call from the cockpit. There was no unusual weather before the crash, and it was unknown if there were any mechanical issues."
Hans Overturf adds, "Any sort of aircraft crash is going to require extensive investigation. Although some reports have mentioned a previous UPS cargo plane crash that was possibly caused by its shipment of lithium batteries, there are no details regarding the contents of the aircraft and whether they could have incited the accident. While there may be a great deal of speculation to follow this incident, it is important that the investigation is left to the authorities to determine a clear cause. Right now, it is important to honor the lives of the pilots that died in the crash."
As noted by Hans Overturf, many Americans--including the UPS company--are offering their grievance and support to those who lost their loved ones in this crash.
Hans Overturf is a summa cum laude graduate of Humboldt State University who has completed training under the noted financial company Morgan Stanley. As a former financial advisor with a degree in economics, Overturf has followed his professional passion to launch a private financial services firm that is currently based in Tiburon, California. Today, his efforts remain focused on personal investments and management of investment partnership. As he continues to grow his assets in a multitude of asset classes, Overturf also remains committed to his efforts as a private aircraft pilot.
