A Fatal Accident Inquiry in 2019  found that the crash was caused by the pilot's failure to ensure at least one of the fuel transfer pump switches was activated. 

It found that the crash happened after the helicopter’s engines flamed out sequentially while the helicopter was airborne, as a result of fuel starvation, due to depletion of the contents of the supply tank.
