Teton Aviation Sued After Fatal Plane Crash in 2018
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The son of a man who died in a 2018 plane crash in Grand Teton National Park has filed a $3 million wrongful death lawsuit against Teton Aviation.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reported that the complaint filed on June 8 claims that Teton Aviation failed to properly service the aircraft 65-year-old David Ross was in when he died.
Pilot Kristine Ciesinski also died in the crash in June 2018.
The National Transportation Safety Board said in a report that review of the glider’s maintenance records revealed no evidence of uncorrected mechanical discrepancies. Efforts to reach Teton Aviation manager Peter Kline were unsuccessful.
