, a Cessna 150, was on a VFR flight from the owner's farm airstrip near Leask, SK to another farm strip near Yorkton. It was reported that there were 3 persons including an infant on board the a/c. The pilot reported 1 mile south of Theodore at 1740Z with an engine failure, and she advised that she was going to carry out a forced landing. Regina FSS informed the RCMP
who dispatched a car to the scene. Staff at Regina FSS called Prince Albert FSS where the original flight plan was filed to get particulars about the a/c and people on board, and this information was passed on to the RCMP.
A short time later, the pilot of C-FUTX
advised FSS that she was airborne and continuing to destination. C-FUTX
arrived at destination without further incident. The RCMP
were advised of the a/c's arrival. UPDATE In a subsequent discussion with the pilot, it was reported to System Safety that the a/c encountered carburetor icing which caused the engine to quit. The pilot force-landed the a/c on a grid road and was later able to re-start the engine, presumably after the ice had melted. She had consulted her AME by phone, and he suggested that the problem was likely carb ice. She then took off from the grid road and continued on to destination. There was no damage to the a/c or injuries to the occupants of the a/c.
