Incident at 18 NM W of Brandon, MB


1999-06-23: The pilot of C-GWDI, a Cessna 172, was on a company VFR flight itinerary from Avonlea, AB to Steinbach, MB. The pilot contacted Brandon FSS advising that he was VFR On Top about 18 miles west of Brandon, and said he needed to come down to get some gas. Brandon weather was below VFR at the time and there was an IFR inbound. The pilot advised he had holes to get down through the cloud. FSS provided him with weather information, the IFR inbound information and asked what his intentions were. The pilot indicated that he needed to land. FSS asked if he was low on fuel and the pilot replied affirmative. FSS asked if he was declaring an emergency. Once again the reply was affirmative. A holding clearance was received for the IFR inbound and SVFR was approved for C-GWDI, which landed without further incident at 1817Z. The tape and log material have been secured.
