162 Max talks about a fatal crash with many risk factors including a pilot who had low total flying time and relatively little experience in an SR22. After a 5-hour flight, flown late at night, he diverted to buy cheap fuel at another airport close to his home. During that time, his home field went below minimums. He appeared to be unaware he was 0.6 miles off course throughout the entire approach.
