He was not certain that he could make it to the airport, however the a/c did land safely at Fort McMurray at 1620Z. The nature of the oil pressure problem is not known. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that the pilot indicated that after landing there was oil on the side of the aircraft all the way to the tail cone and when the oil level was checked with the dip stick, it was revealed that 6 to 7 liters of oil were missing (7 liters were required to fill the crankcase to full). The oil filter was inspected and found to have metal in it. The owner is not taking any chances and stated he will send the engine for teardown to find the cause.
