Yonkers parents sue flight school over son's death
The parents of Lev Naumov, a former flight student at the American Flyers Flight School, are filing a $50 million dollar lawsuit claiming the school allowed their son to fly in fatal aviation conditions.
After canceling his lesson the previous day, Naumov?s parents say his flight instructor called him the morning of April 23 to say the weather was fine. However, the instructor, Issac Negron, 45, was proven wrong when both he and Naumov died instantly in the plane crash that followed.
Alex and Olga Naumov?s attorney, who is also a pilot, says the syllabus for the April 23 lesson was to teach Lev how to fly with instruments. The plaintiff?s attorney also says this type of lesson was a premature and overly advanced assignment for the 23-year-old.
An attorney representing Issac Negron called the suit premature, since the NTSB has not made an official decision on the pilot of that fatal crash.
