Incident at Edmonton 30 Mi. East


1999-04-29: The aircraft was inbound to Edmonton International on a VFR flight plan, from Regina. Approximately 30 Miles East of Edmonton the pilot advised Edmonton ACC that they had encountered weather conditions which were below VFR limits, and requested and received an IFR clearance to Edmonton at 4,500 feet. Shortly thereafter, the pilot of CGYVV advised ACC that they had encountered icing conditions and that the aircraft was unable to maintain altitude and requested the most direct track to Edmonton. The pilot was informed by ACC that the mimimum radar vectoring atltitude was 4,100 feet and that headings provided below that altitude would be suggested. The aircraft descended to 3,200 feet approximately 1,000 feet above ground level at which point the pilot reported that he was in visual conditions and the ice was melting off his aircraft. The aircraft arrived in Edmonton and the pilot completed an uneventful landing at !9:25 Z. OPI - System Safety
