Accident at 4920N / 12124W

The Vancouver (VR) area control centre (ACC) shift manager was advised through the Penticton (YF) flight service station (FSS) of an overdue privately registered Cessna 172 on a VFR flight from Pitt Meadows, BC (CYPK) to Castlegar/West Kootenay, BC (CYCG). During the initial search, the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Victoria contacted the FSS regarding an emergency locator transmitter (ELT) signal associated with the Cessna 172. The aircraft had crashed 6.5NM Southeast (SE) of Hope, BC. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) attended, with the sole occupant surviving.
UPDATE: TSB Report #A20P0088: A privately operated Cessna 172 was on a cross country VFR flight from Qualicum Beach, BC (CAT4); Sechelt, BC (CAP3); Pitt Meadows, BC (CYPK); Princeton, BC (CYDC); Oliver, BC (CAU3); with an ultimate destination of Castlegar, BC (CYCG). Shortly after departure from CAT4, the pilot elected not to fly into Sechelt, BC, due to poor visibilities and low ceilings, and continued on to Pitt Meadows, BC, where the ceilings were about 1 500 feet AGL, and from there towards Hope, BC, where the ceilings lowered to about 1 000 feet AGL. When 6.5 NM SE of Hope, BC, the aircraft collided with trees. JRCC received a signal from the aircraft’s 406 MHz ELT, and the pilot also triggered an SOS signal on the SPOT network, and RCMP were dispatched to the accident site. The pilot received minor injuries and walked from the accident site to Highway 03, where the RCMP found them. The aircraft sustained substantial damage; there was no post-impact fire.
UPDATE: Aviation Incident Report #16791: A privately registered Cessna 172 began its flight with a planned route of: Courtney Airpark, BC (CAH3) to Sechelt, BC (CAP3) to Pitt Meadows, BC (CYDC) to Princeton, BC (CYDC) to Castlegar/West Kootenay, BC (CYCG). Due to low clouds, the aircraft did not land in CAP3, and instead landed in CYPK for refuelling. The aircraft departed CYPK, following the highway to CYDC. At 2500 feet above sea level (ASL), the pilot noticed clouds ahead getting lower. They decided to turn around and land for a full stop at either Hope, BC (CYHE) or Chilliwack, BC (CYCW) until the clouds cleared or the cloud ceiling raised. While performing the turn, the aircraft began losing altitude, so the pilot raised the nose to best angle for climb at full power. The aircraft continued to lose altitude despite this and they braced for impact. The aircraft crashed into the forest.

The fires smoke column was visible from 50NM away. Tanker 271, Tanker 272, and Tanker 275 reported two float planes—a privately registered Cessna A185F and a second privately registered Cessna A185F—were interfering with their circuit between the pickup lake and the fire. BD160 was monitoring 126.7 with Comm1 and Comm2 set to the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) Air to Air. BD160 broadcast periodic blind transmissions on 126.7 regarding the controlled airspace. BD160 spotted the low flying float planes heading northwest approximately 2NM from the edge of NIP045 and broadcast on 126.7 and 122.8 with no response. As BD160 passed the intruding aircraft, both started broadcasting on 122.8. Both aircraft were informed they had flown within 2NM to 3NM of an active fire at 600 feet above ground level (AGL). The float planes reported they were well outside 10NM of the fire. BD160 indicated this was the third such occurrence violating Canadian Aviation Regulations (CAR) 601.15 in the past 13 months.

July 8, 2020

Incident at WINDSOR ON (CYQG) (Incursion - manoeuvring area)

Aviation Incident Report #16693: The pilot of a privately registered Cessna 150M returned from a local flight to Windsor, ON (CYQG), and as they were preparing to enter the Windsor Flying Club (WFC) taxiway from the apron, they noticed the operator of a lawn tractor failing to look for traffic and making multiple crossings of the WFC taxiway. The pilot observed that the tractor operator was wearing a head set and that they were paying no attention to the possibility of potential traffic. Noticing that the operator was not aware of the taxiing aircraft, the pilot came to a full stop, hoping that the operator would see them and move clear of the taxiway. The operator continued mowing the lawn, crossing the taxiway, and again failing to look for traffic before they crossed the taxiway. The lawn tractor operator was moving closer to the aircraft, so the pilot revved the aircrafts engine in an effort to finally get the lawn tractor operators attention. At this point, the operator noticed the aircraft and moved away from the taxiway. The pilot taxied back to their pad and parked their aircraft. The pilot informed the WFC operations desk manager about the incident, and they also had a chat with the lawn tractor operator, whereby the pilot explained to the operator about the dangers of their actions in crossing an active taxiway with no regard for potential traffic. The pilot noted that there was a risk of collision with the WFC contracted operator of the lawn tractor on the WFC taxiway.

Incident at YELLOWKNIFE NT (CYZF)

A Summit Air Ltd. British Aerospace Avro 146 RJ100 (SU8132) from Yellowknife, NT (CYZF) to Hope Bay, NU (CHB3) aborted its take-off at 1438Z on Runway 34, then immediately back tracked into position and departed at 1440Z for CHB3. At 1446Z, SU8132 called and advised returning to CYZF due to a flap issue. The aircraft entered a hold to burn off fuel, and then landed safely at 1534Z, with no assistance required and no operational impact.
UPDATE from Aircraft Maintenance & Manufacturing: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. The aircraft (C-FXRJ/SU8132) conducted a low energy rejected take-off, at 50 knots, from Runway 34 at Yellowknife, NT (CYZF), due to a master caution "ICE PROT" light and chime. When the thrust levers were brought to idle, the fault cleared. The crew elected to backtrack on the runway and conduct a second take-off. After rotation, at a height of 1000 with the flaps selected to 18, an immediate master caution and chime for "Flap Fail – Flap Inop" was announced. Due to cloud conditions, the aircraft continued to 8000, where the crew ran the required checklist and decided to return to CYZF. The flaps remained at 18 as the aircraft held in a pattern to burn fuel, then landed without further incident. Company maintenance inspected the aircraft, with no discrepancies noted. The fault was cleared and the aircraft returned to service. There have been no further reported instances of this fault.

Incident at NORMAN WELLS NT (CYVQ)

UPDATE from Aircraft Maintenance & Manufacturing: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. During the take-off roll on departure from Norman Wells, NT, the crew of NWL141 observed a right-hand (R/H) "Environmental Fail" warning, and aborted the take-off. Maintenance performed a ground test, with no faults found, and the aircraft was returned to service. The take-off was started again and this time both the R/H and left-hand (L/H) "Environmental Fail" warnings were observed, and the take-off was aborted. Maintenance carried out a Bleed Air pressure check and found that the Pressure Regulator Shut-off Valve was allowing the bleed air pressure to spike before beginning to regulate properly. The valve was replaced, system tested normally and the aircraft was returned to service. There have been no further reported incidents, service difficulty report (SDR) #20200731017 reference.
