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.

January 5, 2022

Incident at 60NM NE VANCOUVER INTL BC (CYVR)

A Central Mountain Air Ltd. de Havilland DHC-8-102 (C-FVRJ/GLR8292) from Kamloops, BC (CYKA) to Vancouver, BC (CYVR) declared an emergency due to a nose gear indication issue. The Aviation Operations Centre (AVOPS) and the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Victoria were advised. The aircraft landed safely, no operational impact.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. Troubleshooting was carried out and found the nose oleo to be flat. This did not let the gear go fully up, thus keeping the nose gear open. Nose oleo hydraulic fluid was replaced and serviced, as per maintenance manual (MM) 12-10-32. A gear swing was carried out 3 times, and no further fault was found. See task card 221762-0008. Service Difficulty Report (SDR) #20220112021 was submitted.
UPDATE: TSB Report #A22P0001: C-FVRJ, a de Havilland Aircraft DHC-8-102 operated by Central Mountain Air, was conducting flight GLR8292 from Kamloops, BC (CYKA) to Vancouver Intl, BC (CYVR) with 3 crew members on board. After the landing gear was retracted on departure from CYKA, the flight crew received a landing gear unsafe advisory indication. The landing gear was subsequently lowered and the nose gear down-and-locked indication did not illuminate. The flight crew declared an emergency and anticipated having to extend the landing gear manually prior to landing at CYVR. The crew cycled the landing gear a second time and, on that extension, the indication showed that all the gear was down and locked. The flight landed without further incident. Subsequent maintenance actions found the nose landing gear shock strut assembly to be compressed. This prevented the landing gear from fully retracting and kept the nose gear doors from properly closing. Hydraulic fluid was added to the shock strut as per the aircrafts maintenance manual and landing gear test swings were successfully conducted. The aircraft was returned to service.

The student attempted to correct by adding power, but moved the control stick in their left hand, mistaking it for the throttle. This resulted in the aircraft pitching down rapidly and contacting the runway, causing the nose wheel assembly to become detached from the aircraft. The instructor pilot intervened during this sequence, and landed the aircraft on the remaining runway. The aircraft came to rest on its nose. There were no injuries.

The aircraft struck an abbreviated precision approach path indicator (APAPI) light box and continued travelling across the graded area, and came to rest perpendicular to the runway edge. Weather conditions were VFR, with winds from the south and less than 8 knots. The runway was 95% bare and dry. Runways were closed for several hours.
UPDATE: TSB Report #A22O0013: A privately registered Piper PA-46-600TP was on a visual flight rules flight from Kitchener/Waterloo, ON (CYKF) to the Stratford, ON (CYSA) with the pilot as sole occupant. During the landing roll on Runway 17, the pilot felt the aircraft swerving and attempted a correction before deciding to reject the landing. After they added power for the go-around, the right main wheel entered the snowbank beside the runway, causing the aircraft to exit the runway surface into an area of undisturbed snow. The aircraft collided with some airport signage before the nose wheel sheared off. The aircraft came to a stop upright in a snow covered area beside the runway. The pilot exited the aircraft uninjured, the aircraft had been damaged significantly. The propeller was destroyed, and there was damage to the wing, cowling, and engine mounts.
