Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The Jetstream 32 suffered a runway excursion during landing on runway 18 of Bahía Solano-José Celestino Mutis Airport, Colombia.
The aircraft sustained substantial damage to both propellers, engines and the rear of the fuselage, but the occupants were not hurt.

Probable cause(s):
Runway excursion as a result of a long landing, made after an unstable approach (low angle of approach and high speed).
Lack of situational awareness by the crew, by not recognising, or recognising and accepting, that they were undertaking an unstable approach to a limited aerodrome and not taking corrective action.
Poor decision making on the part of the crew in deciding to continue the approach and landing instead of going around when it was evident that they would make a long landing.
Contributing Factors:
Absence of a sterile cabin which reduced the situational awareness of the crew, during configuration and preparation of the aircraft for the final approach and landing.
Lack of supervision by the Air Operator, when scheduling the flight of the aircraft to a runway whose length was not sufficient for a safe operation, with the total weight it carried.
Poor conditions in the safety area of the Solano Bay airfield, which did not allow normal deceleration once the aircraft left the runway.
