Accident at KUUJJUAQ QC (CYVP)

TSB Report #A22Q0059: C-FYHN, a Custom Helicopters Ltd. Bell 206L helicopter on floats, was on a local visual flight rules flight from Kuujjuaq, QC (CYVP). Shortly after takeoff, the pilot encountered icing conditions unannounced in the weather forecast, which the pilot had consulted before the flight. The pilot turned around and returned to CYVP; however, the windshield and the rounded windows on each side had enough ice accumulation that the pilots visibility was reduced. The pilot manoeuvered the helicopter just above the landing strip where he had previously been parked, all the while at a higher height, and then began a vertical descent for landing. Approximately 5 ft above ground, a wind gust destabilized the helicopter and the tail rotor collided with an airplane portable stair ramp. Damage to the tail rotor caused a loss of efficiency, causing the helicopter to rotate out of control to the right. The pilot lowered the collective and closed the throttle to stop the rotation. The helicopter landed hard on the ground. The pilot was not injured and completed the shutdown procedure before evacuating the helicopter. The tail rotor, the tail boom, and the landing gear suffered substantial damage.

UPDATE: TSB Report #A22Q0074: a privately registered, amateur-built Commander 285 aircraft was on a visual flight rules flight from Lac Klemka, QC, to Lac Sébastien, QC (Water) (CTD3), with 1 pilot and 2 passengers on board. The aircraft taxied to the northwest of the lake in order to take off in a southeasterly direction. During the takeoff roll, the aircraft did not take off in the area where the floats normally lift off from the water. The pilot attempted to manoeuvre to lift the right-side float to facilitate takeoff; however, the left float lifted up suddenly. The pilot then reacted by bringing the aircraft back to wings-level. The aircraft subsequently took off without the pilot controlling the manoeuvre. Seeing that the distance with terrain ahead and to the right was too short to fly above, the pilot turned left. Afterwards, the pilot felt the aircraft descending. He made sure that the engine power controls were set at full throttle and lowered the aircrafts nose to pick up speed. The left wing inclined suddenly and the aircraft was no longer maintaining its altitude. The pilot cut off the engine and the aircraft collided with the water. The 3 occupants on board were able to evacuate and swim to the closest shore. They were rescued by witnesses who assisted them by boat. The aircraft sank. Two helicopters were sent to the location to evacuate and transport the 3 injured people to a Chicoutimi hospital.
