I wonder if it would be a good idea to add to the ATC protocol to say "check cabin pressurization" when they realize that the pilot has slurred speech or his plane is flying erratically. The pilot may still be able to physically able to fix it, but he may not be aware of an issue, as he starts to lose consciousness. If the ATC firmly says 'check cabin pressurization,' that might wake the pilot up enough to do it.

I read the pilot was involved in some sort of multi-million dollar financial scam. It's possible the pilot committed suicide as a result.

My heart hurts for that controller knowing there was nothing she could do. And yet she still maintains full awareness to control the rest of the airspace. She's a true professional and a credit to her training and all of the other dedicated ATC professionals out there.

NTSB says it was a Portland man probably flying alone for the first time who wasn’t certified on that kind of aircraft. Richard Boehlke was 72.

WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (KTVZ) – Video evidence and DNA testing have confirmed that only one person – the pilot, a Portland businessman – was aboard a twin-engine business jet that crashed two weeks ago in the Mutton Mountains on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation, police said Monday. “Although the original flight plan indicated two persons on board, the pilot, who was identified as Richard Boehlke, 72, was the only person in the aircraft,” Warm Springs Tribal Police Lt. Ron Gregory told NewsChannel 21. “This was confirmed through video at the originating airport and later through DNA testing on the remains.” Boehlke was flying his Cessna C560 jet on a filed flight plan from Troutdale, east of Portland, to Boise when it crashed the afternoon of Saturday, Jan. 9 in the Mutton Mountains, located in the northeast corner of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. No official cause for the crash has been released, Gregory said. However, he added, the “FAA did confirm that during his last transmissions, it sounded like Boehlke was slurring his words, possibly indicating some sort of medical issue, but nothing beyond that has been confirmed.” Gregory said the FAA records indicated the Cessna had climbed up toward the 37,000-foot ceiling but “got to about 31,000 feet and was just sort of taking this nosedive, making a circular pattern.” Though the cockpit voice and flight data recorder were recovered from the crash scene, Gregory said, “We may never be able to know exactly what caused the crash -- at least for a while.” The National Transportation Safety Board’s preliminary report on the crash investigation is likely to be released within the next week or so, according to Christopher O’Neil, NTSB’s chief of media relations in Washington, D.C.. Federal Aviation Administration records show the plane, built in 1989, was owned by SX Transport LLC, with an address on Northeast Marine Drive of a houseboat where Boehlke lived. Boehlke is listed in his LinkedIn profile as the 15-year chairman and CEO of Senexus Companies of Portland and previously was co-founder, chairman and CEO of Alterra Healthcare (Brookdale Senior Living.) FAA records also indicate the model of twin-engine Cessna jet Boehlke was flying requires two pilots or a waiver, which he apparently did not have. Gregory said he also had heard the model of aircraft required having two people aboard.

Classic Hypoxia, or mild stroke. Why the 2nd passenger could have been his wife? Need more details. It was night time, so it might be hard to see the Bleed switch for pressurization as well. Spiraling caused by the stall as plane reached its top altitude.

@Tony Kenny It isnt a guessing game thougg. Pilots know what altitudes they are allowed to fly without oxygen and what the rules are. It is part of the rules for flying. No one is going to fly above the level they are allowed to fly and completely forget about the altitude limits. It is part of every day flying. At that flight level they had to have been using oxygen. But they must have run out

Bit strange, the aircraft take care of itself for pressurisation, so I learned, speech is slurred though, did he have a stroke? Shuch a shame for any pilot to go down and taking a passenger with him, no good. Strange that there was no reaction from the passenger though, I would have thought he would have access to the radio, however, I don't know how violent the spiral was, they may have been pinned to their seat! But it is all speculation and that is all it is at the moment. i am no expert what so ever! R.I.P I feel for all those involved. I get the impression the controller had a suspicion that something was not quite right early on, anyone think that? His transponder said 370 early on, he was given a new height, yet he never changed it. Something wrong with the pilot or no oxygen, but it is supposed to be automatic and has an alarm? This is one of those strange ones that might be not so straight forward as might be first thought. Thoughts with family and friends and anyone affected by this.

I think hypoxia can be ruled out. I looked up N3RB transmissions on the GND channel of KTTD, on Jan 9th at around 20:50 UTC, immediately prior to his departure, and the pilot ‘s voice sounds just as bad, if not worse, than that heard here. You could easily think (or realize) those were the words of a dying man, may his soul Rest In Peace. I’m surprised anybody would have ventured to ride with him. May be Victor could persuaded to compile that in a new video?
