On the landing roll, directional control of the aircraft was lost and the aircraft ended its course on the grassy part of the runway. The aircraft’s propeller was damaged; the pilot, the only occupant on board, was not injured.
Aviation Incident Report #17224: When landing on Runway 23 at Trois-Rivières, QC (CYRQ) after a parachute drop, a Parachutisme Adrénaline Cessna P206A (C-FMHQ) from Trois-Rivières, QC (CYRQ) to Trois-Rivières, QC (CYRQ) made a runway excursion into the grass south of Runway 23, at about the height of Taxiway A. The pilot reported that when the nose wheel touched down after the main landing gear in the centre of the runway, the aircraft began to veer slightly to the left. The pilot unsuccessfully attempted to correct it by throttling right. With increased movement to the left, additional right throttle pressure was applied until full deflection, again unsuccessfully. The pilot then applied the right brake to attempt to correct the aircrafts trajectory, which did not seem to respond to the rudder pressure. Now sliding to the left and seeing only trees and a fence in front, conducting a go-around was no longer an option for the pilot. At this point, both brakes were applied to slow the aircraft down as much as possible before exiting the runway. The aircraft ended its course with its nose in the grassy part. The engine continued operating and running normally. Since no damage was apparent, the pilot taxied on the ground without assistance up to Planet-Air Maintenance. The aircraft appeared to respond properly to the brake/rudder commands while taxiing on the ground following its exit from the runway. The aircraft was sent to an approved maintenance organization (OMA) that will inspect and try to determine if a mechanical failure might have been the cause. An inspection will take place following the event. On the flight operations side, since the exact reason for the incident was not known at the time of the report, a discussion was held regarding best flight practices.

The pilot conducted an initial approach to Runway 13, executed a go-around, and set up for a second approach. After the second approach, the aircraft touched down, with the pilot finding the braking to be poor. Runway 13 has a 70 foot displaced threshold, a 0.5% downhill slope, and was reported to have frost present on the morning of the accident. Skid marks were observed starting about 800 feet beyond the threshold of the 1494 foot runway. As the aircraft was not slowing as expected, the pilot applied full power in an attempt to conduct a go-around. The aircraft ran off the end of the runway. It bounced off of a small berm and came to rest, on its belly, in a gravel pit. All occupants were able to extricate themselves and suffered various degrees of injuries. The airplane was substantially damaged. The RCMP and EMS services attended the scene and the pilot and passengers were taken to hospital.

Incident at 30NM DAWSON CREEK BC (CYDQ)

A North Cariboo Flying Service Beech 200 (NCB2908) from Edmonton, AB (CYEG) to Dawson Creek, BC (CYDQ) was enroute to Dawson Creek when the pilot reported an indication with the second engine and was diverting to Fort St. John, BC (CYXJ). No emergency declared and no impact to operations. Aircraft landed safely at 1745Z.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. The crew noted the #2 engine would not decelerate, in descent, below 1400lbs of torque (TQ), but then self-rectified and began to work properly. As a precaution, the crew diverted to Fort St. John, BC (CYXJ) and generated a defect. Company maintenance inspected the aircraft and accomplished the following: #2 engine control linkages were inspected in the area of the cam box and Fuel Control Unit (FCU) for any signs of binding or interference with wires or other airframe components. No faults found - good clearance and smooth operation was observed. The flight crew noted no binding was felt on the power lever. Excess lubricant was wiped off of the cam box. Ground run checks were completed. Multiple power cycles, from idle to full torque in both flight idle and ground idle condition lever settings, could not duplicate the fault or detect any hesitation in the reduction of power. Ground function checked, with no fault found. The aircraft was returned to service and the defect has not reoccurred to date. No further action.
