Wellstone Crash Families Settle With Airline’s Insurer

August 29, 2003

Aviation Charter Inc. has agreed to a $25 million insurance settlement with the family members of Minnesota Sen. Paul Wellstone and five other passengers as compensation for the October plane crash which killed them, according to the Associated Press.

The settlement means no lawsuit will come of the crash, and was likely brought on by a preliminary National Transportation Safety Board report which showed pilot error was the cause of the accident.

A spokesperson for Aviation Charter said the settlement was not an admission of pilot error.
