Summary: The aircraft, owned by a flying club as a rental airplane, was destroyed following an uncontrolled descent into terrain about 2 miles west of New Vienna, Iowa. The improper planning/decision by the pilot to fly into forecast icing conditions with an airplane not equipped with a certified deicing system. Also casual to the accident was the continued flight in known icing conditions and the pilot not performing flight to an alternate destination. A contributing factor was the pilot's lack of qualification as an air carrier.
