The 28-year-old died when the plane taking him from Nantes to Cardiff plunged into the sea off Alderney on the night of 21 January 2019.
His remains were recovered the following month, but the body of the pilot, 59-year-old David Ibbotson, has still not been found.
UK resident David Henderson, who allegedly arranged the flight, is due to stand trial in October accused of endangering the safety of an aircraft, as well as attempting to discharge a passenger without valid permission or authorisation.
An inquest into Mr Sala’s death cannot take place until the proceedings involving Mr Henderson are completed.
This week Mr Sala’s family urged Dorset coroner Rachael Griffin to set a start date for the hearing.
‘It is a tragedy that two years have passed since Emiliano’s death and we still do not know exactly how and why he died,’ the Sala family lawyer, Daniel Machover, said. ‘An inquest is the only way to establish the full truth.
‘I very much hope that the Dorset coroner will now set a date for the inquest to start immediately after David Henderson’s trial, so that Emiliano’s family do not have to endure another bleak anniversary with no answers.’
Following an investigation, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch concluded that the plane suffered an in-flight break-up while being flown too fast for its design limits, and that the pilot lost control while attempting to avoid bad weather.
It also found that Mr Ibbotson was not licensed to operate flights for financial gain.
