In light of the foggy conditions, pilot should have landed at Burbank and had them take a vehicle to the practice (which was about 30 minutes away by vehicle). The helicopter was due to land at Camarillo airport which is about 15 minutes passed Mamba Sports by vehicle. So the decision to fly the chopper instead of drive from Burbank saves them roughly 15 to 30 minutes. Terribly tragic. Was it ultimately the pilot's decision to fly on rather than Kobe's? Well, we'll probably never know. Bottom line is that this accident was avoidable using common sense and now a living legend is no more.
