1999-01-19: The pilot of C-GTJB, a Piper Arrow, departed Slave Lake VFR for Fort Vermilion at 0012Z. Twenty minutes later, he contacted Edmonton FSS to report that the a/c encountered icing conditions and he was returning. A short time later, the pilot reported 1/2 inch of rime ice on the a/c, but he could see the lights of Slave Lake in VFR conditions. At 0041Z, the pilot reported 6 miles from Slave Lake, but the a/c was losing some electrical systems. The FSS specialist requested the pilot call when down at Slave lake. At 0047Z, there was no response to calls to the pilot and the RCMP and Edmonton ACC were advised. At 0108Z, the pilot called to report he had landed safely, but with some difficulty associated with ice on the windshield. The a/c was not damaged. OPI - System Safety
