Vanessa stated in her lawsuit that the weather conditions were not suitable for flying. There was an extremely low, blinding fog and the pilot, Ara George Zobayan, failed to properly analyse and monitor the weather before take-off and during the flight.

Island Express is also accused of negligence for failing to install a terrain alert system in the helicopter, stated in another section of the case, according to a report by Los Angeles Times.

The system may have alerted Zobayan that he was approaching a ridge. The device was not required by federal standards for the helicopter.
