Accident at Lac Itomamo

TSB #A19Q0083: An Adventure Plane, an amateur-built seaplane on floats, was on a visual flight rules (VFR) flight from Lac Viceroy, QC to Lac Itomamo, QC in Monts-Valin National Park with only a pilot on board. On final approach before a landing on Lac Itomamo, the pilot experienced significant wind shear as well as a crosswind that was stronger than expected. After the floats had first touched the waters surface, the aircraft bounced. Its right wing was suddenly lifted by a wind gust, thus pushing down the left wing, which hit the surface of the water; the aircraft overturned. The pilot successfully evacuated the submerged aircraft and swam to the shore. The pilot was rescued by a boat and was uninjured. The aircraft was equipped with a 406 MHz emergency locator transmitter (ELT), but no signal was detected by JRCC after impact.
