    DUBAI (Sputnik) Earlier today, the Moscow-based Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC, MAK) said it had completed transcribing the voice recorder from the Flydubai passenger jet that crashed on March 19, killing all 62 people on board.

    "We welcome the publication of the report by the Interstate Aviation Committee on the completion of its work to decipher and transcribe the recording of the cockpit voice recorder," a Flydubai spokesperson told RIA Novosti.

    Flydubai is committed to assisting investigators and thanks the Russian government for its efforts, the airline’s spokesperson added.

    The plane fell apart as it hit the ground while landing in adverse weather conditions. The IAC is studying two main probable causes of the crash – technical malfunction and human error.
