Accident at 50NM NW FORESTVILLE

The Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Trenton reported the crash of a privately registered, amateur-built, Air Command Commander 285 in the Valin Mountains.
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.
